Close to the Bristol Channel in a country side expanse, The Big Sheep is a fully functioning farm with an array of entertaining activities and features suitable for families and ewe enthusiasts alike. Filled with fun-inducing features, cloud shaped mammals and the odd confused film fanatic, the farm is one of Devon's most popular attractions. An abundance of sheep related activities including demonstrations of shearing, shows and lamb feeding are ran alongside an indoor play centre, train rides, trampolines, farm safari, combat zone and a Goatel (a goat hotel). The internal bleet of hunger is dealt with by two eateries, the Ewetopia Café and Shepherds Restaurant, both of which serve fresh fare and locally sourced ingredients where possible.
Families of Groupon grippers are offered a ticket for two adults and up to three children for £19 to explore The Big Sheep experience. Embarking on a country gallivant, families soak up farmyard atmosphere while taking part in the cornucopia of activities on offer. Older children (8+) and frustrated adults can enjoy Battlefield Live, an outdoor combat game with sound effects, while cantering youngsters can take part in pony rides (surcharges apply). Slurping intervals are dealt with by the farm's brewery, who offer hydration to adult patrons.
The Big Sheep has received a large number of reviews from visitors who have enjoyed family days at the activity centre. Dooyoo users gave an average score of 4 stars out of five, and gave particular mention to the informative and well run shows, whilst TripAdvisor reviewers also commented favourably.
The shows were organised well so you could see the other attractions inbetween without rushing. Our toddler loved pets corner where she got to feed lambs, goats, sheep and ponies. The indoor play area is really good with ball pits and slides

shows run throughout the day - sheep shearing, bottle feeding the lambs, the sheep show, the beer show, sheep racing. These are very humourous and so entertain parents and grandparents as well as the kids. [sic]
