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.

  • I'm sure this would have been a much better place to visit, but because of Covid 19 restrictions, most of the park was closed. They looked after you extremely well, hand sanitizer everywhere...  more »

  • This is an excellent place to take your family come rain or shine. Excellent rides for all ages. Indoor play areas, animals galore for feeding, events, games and sports galore. The staff were very friendly and behaved as if they were enjoying it. A place to eat, relax or shop. All in all money well spent.
  • Absolutely brilliant place. It was chucking it down but we still had an amazing day. We stayed 4hrs and there were still things we hadn't seen or done. The shows are brilliant and fun, animals are well looked after, rides are good, shop is reasonably priced. Well worth the money and a family attraction as it should be. Star of the day definitely John who did the shows.
  • Brilliant place to visit whilst on holiday. The rollercoaster was so good! We couldn’t get my little lad off it. He couldn’t get enough. The animals all looked happy and I loved how the friendly staff helped my little ones interact with the rabbits and guinea pigs etc. The train ride is lovely and the go karts great fun. On our holiday this was our favourite day. Thank you Big Sheep!
  • We love coming here and all the staff are truly amazing! Especially the sheep guy who does the lamb feeding, sheep racing and the talks, he was so funny, bright and cheerful.(we come back to see him really) Restaurant serves some beautiful food. We love it here great value for money.
  • Fantastic day out with our 5, 3 & 8 month old. Spent the whole day there and got to go on the rides lots of times. Great variety of things to do. Staff were all really friendly and good fun with the kids, they made our day really. 😀
