Attraction Information

North Devon’s most popular Family Attraction has brought smiles and laughter to over 3.5 million visitors. The Big Sheep is terrific for tots, toddlers and teens, awesome for adults, and fantastic fun for families! Guaranteed fun, whatever the Weather!

This multi–Award-Winning Family Attraction is guaranteed to be the highlight of your holiday, with hilarious shows, including the world-famous Sheep Race, thrilling rides and Devon’s largest family roller coaster, The Rampage. You will adore the animal magic plus a brilliant selection of indoor and outdoor play, and activities to keep everyone in the family entertained all day long.

With up to ten hilarious shows, all with an undercover viewing area, visitors will enjoy the most EWE-nique events ever seen in the UK. Shows include the world-famous Sheep Race – place a bet on your favourite sheep and jockey; the Sheep Show - where sheep from around the world strut their stuff on stage; the Sheep and Duck Trials, Sheep Shearing and the Lamb Feeding show.

If you fancy a bit of outdoor play, you can bounce on the giant jumping pillows, ride the Twister, hop on a Swan Pedalo or swing boat or steer your own tractor around the track. The younger ones and toddlers will love the gentle rides like the Piggy tractor, the Honeypot Bears, the mini bouncing pillows or hop on the train at Eweston Station and circle the lake.

Children can enjoy the magic of a real farm – newborn lambs around throughout the year, and other baby farm animals are on hand to feed and cuddle at Pets’ Corner. Meet the resident animals in the Animal Barn, there are sheep, lambs, goats, pigs, puppies, chicks, bunny rabbits, alpacas, donkeys and more!

Ewetopia, a massive indoor adventure play zone where children of all ages (and lively adults) can burn off some energy with a BIG choice of exciting slides, imaginative soft play, climbing areas, tumble towers, mazes, obstacles, and a Sensory Room for the babies.  There is also a Combat Zone for those looking for adventure. And “Barnwood Bears” for the little ones, a NEW Woodland Playground in the woods offering loads of interactive outdoor activities.

If you are looking for a tasty bite to eat, then visit The Barn Cafe serving delicious food and the best cakes ever. The Bo Beep’s Café in Ewetopia has a variety of fast food, cold and hot drinks, and snacks. Or, if you fancy bringing your own there’s a well-maintained picnic area too.

Visit The Big Sheep all year with Family Festivals in the Spring, Summer and Autumn on the outdoor live events stage and seasonal events for Halloween, Bonfire Night, Fireworks, Christmas Markets, and a BIG Easter Eggstravaganza.
