Attraction Information

Axe Valley Wildlife Park is East Devon’s ‘hidden gem’.

Situated in the beautiful countryside of the Axe Valley, just a short distance from the Jurassic Coast, is this small, friendly farm. This great day out for families ensures that children of all size (big kids too!) will find something they love – whether that’s hand feeding the free-range birds, handling a snake or a tarantula or meeting the armadillo, zebra, lemur or flamingos to name just a few!

The daily animal talks will give you lots more information about all the park inhabitants and perhaps inspire future animal enthusiasts! There are various play areas all over the park, which are ideal for parents to stop for a quick rest while the children run free and you can enjoy a hot drink and cake at Ringo’s Rest Coffee Shop when you’re done!

Lots of different animals to see and learn about!

Hidden gem 5 out of 5 stars

We have visited Devon lots on times but never heard of this wildlife park. We had a great day out, the kids loved it, aged 1 to 8, lots of animals to see including meerkats, snakes and zebras. Lots of picnic areas, a cafe, shop and different play areas. It was hot when we went and there was lots of shelter. Highly recommended.


Amazing little place! 5 out of 5 stars

We love this park! It's perfect for our toddler as it's not too big so she can walk around and you can get much closer to the animals than you can at a normal zoo. There is still a good variety of animals to see and a play area for the children keeping you busy all day! There is always something on, with alerts that remind you if a keeper talk is about to start, excluding close encounters that they do daily. The animals all look confident and relaxed. All in all love it and will be back again and again.
