Things To Do In North Devon

If you’re searching for things to do in Devon, then you’ve come to right place. The BIG Sheep is North Devon’s best all-weather family attraction day out. Our theme park is suitable for all ages of family fun and is perfect for rainy days out! Our Ewetopia Indoor Playground is a great way to tire the kids for a few hours while you enjoy a cup of tea in the warmth of one of our cafés, little ones will love our selection of toddler rides and attractions open throughout the year whilst big kids (and little kids!) will enjoy our Rampage Rollercoaster during the summer season as well as Battlefield Live where combat comes to life!

From January to October you can come and feed the animals in our indoor animal barn, and our adult visitors will love our on-site brewery and gin distillery. This really is a great place to visit in North Devon! During the summer season from Easter until October we run daily live shows including the world-famous Sheep Racing, place your bets and see if your woolly friend comes in first earning you a place in our winner’s circle! Our friendly and helpful flock genuinely love what they do, so come and enjoy a day out in Devon and let us create some magical memories for you and your family!

Key Information

Coronavirus Update

Following the latest government advice we are closing our Ewetopia indoor play and site from this weekend and will be seeking advice on how we can safely open our outside attractions, provide some safe entertainment areas and for visitors to view our lambing over the coming weeks – when we are able to do this and reopen we will let you know.

We need to support you and our health services at this super tough time and hope to be able to protect the jobs of our amazing flock.

Thank you for your support at this hugely challenging time for us all – we will be extending the dates on our season tickets and will keep you all updated. Thank you, and be safe.

Coronavirus and upcoming events

Unfortunately, in light of the recent Government guidelines regarding large gatherings, we have taken the decision to postpone some of our upcoming events. This includes our Easter Toddler Takeover days, KAPOW Wrestling and Fight Night, and our Mind, Body and Soul event. Pigstock 2020 has also been postponed. Please see the individual event pages for further information.

If you have booked tickets for any of the above events you will have been contacted. If not, please email [email protected] for further information.
