4.1
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. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Bideford trip simple and quick.

  • We had read the reviews and thought we'd give this a go, especially as the weather forecast wasn't promising: it was the best decision we could have made! We spent the entire day there, from opening t...  more »
  • Excellent day out although on the day we chose to go, the Big Dipper was not working but it did not lessen our enjoyment.  more »
  • Fab day had by all even though pouring with rain. Staff very friendly and very funny. The sheep show is fab and had us in stitches. Tractor ride was great fun with a fab driver who again made us laugh...  more »

  • Lots of fun. Even the sheep and goats make you feel welcome, (although that may be more due to carrying food for them). Got my tractor driving certificate with the aid of my niece. Go-kart things and the Swan Pedalos were a bit of an effort, but good exercise. Ooh, and the beer and cider there is lovely and definitely worth a purchase. An inordinate amount of other exciting things to do.
  • Great place, kids love it. Probably good for up to 9 years old, depending on the kids obviously. Staff are really nice, helpful and good fun. No matter how busy it gets they are always fun and accomodating. Clean and tidy, food is good and not a rip off. The main cafeteria by the soft play gets crazy busy. That soft play is huge but always well looked after and clean. The sheep shows are great, kids love them. Even though they've done thousands of them they make each one as special as the last, making sure the kids and parents have fun.
  • The Indian running duck show is great... But wasn't that impressed with anything else. The roller coaster was fun for my daughter though... But we see more sheep on the drive there. Odd place, not really sure what it's supposed to be. A farm? Our a mini theme park...
  • Living ten minutes from The Big Sheep I've invested in an annual pass as I find the admission price very expensive for what you get, over the ten times I have been only once has every attraction been open. Now we go to use the soft play with our daughter which has made the annual pass so worth it but I wouldn't pay the standard price and wouldn't recommend anyone to pay it as it's so hit and miss what will be open. Other than these two things I really do like it there, staff are usually happy and cheerful and the restaurant is lovely.
  • The Big Sheep is amazing. It's great fun for all the family. There's loads to do, and you can have a brilliant day. There are shows every half an hour, so there is always something to watch if you would like to. The shows are entertaining and interesting, and I especially enjoyed feeding the baby lambs. There are also rides here for children. The food was lovely, but came in big portions, so we were very full. The gift shop had a large variety of items and we ended up having a spending spree there! Was a really good day out!
