If you’re looking for a great day out for all the family a visit to The BIG Sheep is a must! The famous attraction and Gold Award Winner for Tourism Excellence in South West England, is now firmly established as one of the UK’s most innovative & exciting family attractions providing wacky and unique entertainment for all the family. Our madcap show team will entertain you with hilarious and entertaining shows which include a hysterical introduction to various breeds of sheep from around the world, the world famous sheep racing, horse whispering, sheep shearing, dog and participating duck trials. 

The BIG Sheep has something to entertain any age group and children and adults can burn off excess energy and play safely on a great selection of slides and imaginative soft play climbing areas, tumble towers, mazes & obstacles in our MASSIVE indoor playarea.

There are loads of fun packed outdoor activities too. For the thrill seekers there are bookable sessions at the Adventure Centre adjacent to the park for climbing, low ropes, mountain boarding and competitive families can battle it out using state of the art eye-safe laser guns as they navigate their way through tanks, helicopters and hide outs at Battlefield Live Outdoor Combat Zone. 

You can also enjoy taking a ride on our farm safari rides, hop on the magical lakeside train ride or sail around the lake in our giant swan peddle boats. Children love our pony school and are full of pride when they pick up a rosette after taking a ride on one of the BIG Sheep’s resident ponies. Our twister chair-o-planes ride can be adapted to go slower for younger children and will speed up for the more adventurous so they can feel the thrill of flying through the air. A 10 minute work out on our giant jumping pillows will leave you feeling energised and ready for a go on our fun and interactive water game, splash zone (don’t forget to bring a towel because you are sure to get wet). To quench your thirst adults can enjoy sampling our finest real ale after they watch the beer show.
