Are you looking for a family day out in Devon? One of the biggest attractions in North Devon is "The Big Sheep"
- a day out that's devoted to sheep, sounds interesting, doesn't it. There's plenty to do,
both inside and out, so if the British weather lets you down you'll still find plenty
to do, and kids will refrain from puttering that 'they're bored...'.

Sheep Dog Trials
- watch is awe (hopefully) as one man and his trusty sheep dog round up some unpredictable sheep.
- if you're feeling adventurous, and aren't too scared of heights, this could something for you. Navigate your way 35ft in the air, across rope bridges, balance beams and tyre swings -all under careful supervision.
- certainly something for all you budding Andy McNabbs. This outdoor combat game uses infrared weapons, much like paintball, but without the painful bruises.
- There's several different rides scattered around the site for you to have a go on.
- Like a giant skateboard, you can have a go at mountain boarding, with everything from a beginners track to a free style area. The instructors will be able to show you how to get started.
-Ever fancied a go on a pony, but were too afraid to ask. Now's your opportunity to have a go.
Inside at The Big Sheep
- If it starts raining, go along to the indoor play zone, the sheepily named EWEtopia.
- Are you shearing that sheep? Well, yes, they are. Watch the experienced sheep shearers work their magic.
- If the nippers want to have a go at bottle feeding a lamb, here's their chance!
