Attraction Information

Awards and accolades aside, Pennywell Farm is home to the world famous Pennywell Miniature Pigs! These little cuties would be well worth the price of admission all on their own.

Prepare for a busy day as there’s a different animal activity, show or display every half hour, as well as plenty of seasonal events. Begin by zooming around in the Run Rabbit Go Carts or Family train for a group adventure. Next, take a tour of the enclosures and meet hedgehogs, race ferrets or bottle feed greedy little lambs and goats. You can stroke pint-sized ponies and say hello to Pennywell golden oldie, Tommy the alpaca. Then after exploring the ponds, you’ll even have the chance to cuddle your favourite pet and hand feed them a tasty treat.

Now, what about those adorable Pennywell Pigs?! Visit them in their new home or watch them race over a series of hurdles. Let your little ones blow off some steam on the crazy challenging assault course, huge soft play and for Bob the Builder fans head to the tractor village!

PIGLETS!!! 5 out of 5 stars

It was a brilliant farm! The best one I have been to in England. There is loads to do and see. The pig racing was extraordinary. The pigs had to be bribed to race! It was very funny to watch. There are many different animals to go and feed. There are loads of baby goats and lambs that are bottle feed. All of the animals seemed very responsive and approachable. We got to groom the horses as well. There is some nice fun fair games as well and a croquet field. The cafe was very good! Great scones! But the best part of the farm were the micro piglets!!! Cuddle time with the micro piglets was such a wonderful experience. There are so adorable and friendly. We will be coming back to see this farm again in the future. So well kept!


Great day in the sun 5 out of 5 stars

Loads to see and do here and the nephew was shattered by the end. The sun was shining which always make a day out a bit better but the attraction itself is clean, fun and highly recommended


Fun day out 5 out of 5 stars

Pennywell Farm is a great day out for families. The staff are all great and really help you to get up close to the animals. The little piglets are so cute. The piglet racing was fun too - especially when they jump the hurdles!
