If you are looking for fun-filled, action-packed family days out in Devon… you need look no further than DIGGERLAND!
Located in Cullompton, just a few minutes drive from the M5, you can enjoy fabulous family days out in Devon only at DIGGERLAND.
As you would expect, the Devon park has all the same rides and drives as our other 3 UK parks, including: Spindizzy, Mini Tractors, Groundshuttle and Dig-a-Round, as well as Go-Karts and Dodgems.
At Diggerland children and adults alike can ride, drive and operate REAL diggers, dumpers and other full- size construction machinery.
Many kids get excited at just the thought of passing a building site and seeing all the JCB diggers, which to them are larger than life toys!
Fascinated by all of the machinery, children dream of sitting inside the cabs of diggers and hope their playrooms will one day come to life. Well their dream can now all come true…
Fun for all ages from 4 (subject to height restrictions) to 40-plus, Diggerland with its 18 different rides and drives and an array of additional activities is the ideal theme park for small to large groups looking for something exciting and truly unique. Get to grips with real JCBs and 180/360 excavators, take a head-reeling turn or two on the Spindizzy, rise to lofty heights and enjoy the views on the Skyshuttle, enjoy a bone-rattling off-road ride on the Groundshuttle, or have a go on the Dodgems and Go-Karts!
There are indoor and outdoor play areas, sandpits, coin operated rides and much more where younger visitors can let off steam while their parents can just sit back, relax and watch the fun… or join in!
Set in the stunning grounds of Verbeer Manor, surrounded by the beautiful, picturesque Devonshire countryside and within an easy 30 miles drive or cycle of two renowned English National Parks: Exmoor and Dartmoor, there is no better place to pitch your tent or park your motor home, camper van or caravan than at Diggerland’s, Devon Camp Site.
The camp site is just a few minutes drive from the M5, Junctions 27 and 28, and is adjacent to both the Diggerland Adventure Park and, for those avid anglers among you who love carp fishing, “Diggerlakes”. All our touring pitches for caravans, camper vans, motor homes and tents are flat, level, and well-sheltered with excellent drainage.
Electricity is available with some pitches, but you are advised to pre-book these online as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
During the peak summer season, we open our paddock field exclusively to campers. This grassy field is also level and sheltered with excellent drainage, and there are no marked pitches or electricity hook-ups.
Large rallies, groups, clubs and other organisations, including scouts and guides, are welcome to use this field.

It may be worth checking out Diggerland Devon's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Diggerland Devon before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
Diggerland UK parks are open from 10am to 5pm (4pm in February) during Bank Holidays, weekends and most school holidays. Seasonal variations apply, please check the Diggerland website through the link for park opening details.
Our eating establishments provide a great selection of hot and cold beverages, refreshments, snacks and meals. Diggerland theme park cafe is not owned by Diggerland, so menu will vary.
Diggerland Devon has outside picnic benches and tables for you to enjoy your food in the open air. You may bring your own family picnic to Diggerland, but please note that food bought from home cannot be eaten inside any of Diggerland’s facilities.
"Can I have one of those?"
All parks boast a Diggerland Goodie Store where visitors can mark their day out with a memorable souvenir as well as buy gifts, toys and other merchandise ranging from stationary, clothing, children's toys and Lego to JCB diggers etc.
and baby come too...
Baby changing in the ladies' and disabled toilets. There is a microwave on the cafe counter and a bottle warmer that are freely available for customers to use. Breast feeding is also welcome at the Devon park. There is no specific place for this but mothers may use the children’s soft play where there are secluded corners and large sofas that face a cinema screen so your back is to the room.
"are we there yet?"
By car from Bristol – take M5 to Junction 27, then A38 towards Wellington. After 1/2 mile, at the roundabout, turn right onto B3181 towards Cullompton and continue along B3181 for 3 miles, passing Willand village. Diggerland is on the left. By car from Exeter – take M5 to Junction 28 then head towards Cullompton. When you reach the traffic-light controlled junction with the B3181 in the middle of Cullompton turn right towards Willand and continue along the B3181 until you cross the motorway bridge. Diggerland is on the right, just after the motorway bridge. By public transport – the closest railway station is Tiverton Parkway, approximately 5 miles from Diggerland. Several local bus companies operate services from Tiverton Parkway Railway Station to Exeter via Cullompton. Taxis are also normally available from the railway station.
...got any top tips?
Wear both sunglasses and a hat! Drink plenty of water and wear sunscreen! Wear trainers or wellies! Keep an eye on the weather forecast! Definitely don’t wear your Sunday best as you can get muddy. Remember to thank those who brought you! Don’t forget to bring your pocket money as there are plenty of goodies! Each Diggerland site has a dedicated parking area for cars with disabled parking permits. Each Diggerland location has at least one toilet adapted to suit the requirements of wheelchair users or disability needs. The pathways inside Diggerland are either concrete or tarmac or graveled so wheelchair and mobility buggy access should be adequate. Please note that we do not have wheelchairs or mobility buggies available to borrow or hire and some vehicles will not be accessible.

If you've had fun on your family day out to Diggerland Devon, tell us about your visit so other people will know it's a great place to go as well.Digger up the ground
Our 6-8 kids loved this. Nice playground and big diggers made them squeal with excitement. Pricey but we had a discount card. Some of the machines had a dedicated driver and were basically rides. Most machines had a steep learning curve for controls but were similar throughout so it got easier. At least 8 machines that kids could drive.
