Are you ready for World Famous Fun?
North Devon is the perfect playground for doing what you love. From the golden sandy beaches, incredible restaurants and amazing attractions, there is a wealth of cultural experiences awaiting your arrival with welcome arms.
If, like us, you love a day out that delivers adrenaline rides, a cuddle with baby animals, locally made gin and ales, great food and enough attractions to keep the little ones entertained, then The Big Sheep is your next destination.
Let us take you on a journey that starts with North Devon’s biggest, highest and fastest rollercoaster. Taking you 13 metres into the air along 400 metres of twists, turns and the most breath-taking views, you’ll begin your day feeling alive from the experience. Now it’s time to fly on the Twister. A ride that suspends your seat from elegant chains, taking you into the air where you can spread your arms like a bird and feel weightless as you soar with your loved ones through the sky.
For those who prefer to glide along the water, the Swan Pedalos will take you on a magical journey across a beautiful lake discovering luscious lilies and the evergreen surroundings. Fancy a safari? The Big Sheep have got you covered. As a working farm they have acres of land, perfect for little ones who love tractors, you’ll be taken through the grounds on a covered trailer pulled by the big tractor trying to spot the animals and learning some fun facts on the way. There’s even a train ride that departs from Eweston Station, taking you around Swan Lake. See how many nursery rhyme characters you can spot and watch out for the resident geese and ducklings.
Electric Quad Bikes, Pony Rides, a Tractor Driving School and Ewetopia, Devon’s largest indoor playground will keep the little ones busy. Battlefield Combat Games gives the whole family the chance to don their camouflage gear and take to the field for a fun filled, safe battle against each other for the ultimate title of Battlefield Champion.
We reckon it’s time for a cup of tea, don’t you? A visit to Devon wouldn’t be the same without sampling some true Devon delicacies. The Barn Café, run by an award-winning team, serve up the most delicious homemade scones, cakes and hot & cold food. There’s only one question when it comes to scones in Devon, jam or cream first? Either way, with the beauties the Barn Café serve up you’ll be sure to visit scone heaven and come back for more.
Fancy a tipple? There’s an onsite brewery waiting for you to sample the very best ales, made the traditional way and a live Big Sheep Beer Show that teaches you exactly how they do it. If you love it that much you can even purchase your own take-out keg! Maybe gin is your thing? We do love a pink gin with crisp local tonic and a slice of fresh strawberries in the summer. The onsite, hand crafted, artisan gin distillery use botanicals from local garden RHS Rosemoor and water from Tarka Springs. Every step of crafting the gin is done with precision and care to capture the true spirit of Devon.
Having been around for over 30 years, The Big Sheep know what makes a family fun day out. Shall we meet you at the entrance to World Famous Fun?
