The Big Sheep, Bideford
(4.1/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
Head to The Big Sheep for unusual and entertaining animal shows and interactive games and challenges. Watch sheep race with stuffed animals as their jockeys and see border collies round up ducks. See how trainers learn equine "language" in order to train horses. Enter the splash zone for a water-balloon battle, bounce up and down on a giant inflatable pillow, and play on slides and in ball pits in the indoor play zone. Many of the facilities are under cover, so you can still have fun if it rains during your visit. Plan to see The Big Sheep and other attractions that appeal to you using our Bideford itinerary maker.

  • Best day out with the kids yet. Great staff all round! from the team that put on the shows to the shop workers all friendly and happy. A great venue for the younger ones lots to see and do (ours are 1 and 3) we were here all day. Fully recommended, top marks and more. Only negative is we did not need so much food to feed the animals (did not need to get the offer at the till) as the animals are already so well fed but that's a minor one. The micro brewery on site more than makes up for that :-)
  • A great place to bring the kids whilst holidaying in the area. Loads of things to do, and feed the great plethora of creatures they have. The addition of a new roller coaster has added more fun to the Big Sheep!!
  • Fantastic day out with the family - boy 9 and girl 6. Live shows were great, the staff really friendly and so funny, lots if interesting stuff in there as well. Definitely all day and all weather. Really God value for money.
  • I'm 20 and even I enjoyed it! Feeding the sheep and the shows were immensely entertaining! Highly recommended! The ales and ciders they sell to are divine!
  • The kids (2 & 5yo) loved their day... The staff were great, the sheep farming theme is as strong as the puns! The sheep show is a shear delight & duck trials was poultry in motion!
