The Big Sheep., Bideford

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 »

  • 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!
  • A fun and exciting place to take the family. The young ones loved the rides as they are all family friendly. There's a lake where you can take out a boat and paddle round which is good fun for younger children. The indoor play area is fantastic and children under 2 have loads of room to play.
  • Brilliant place for small children. The staff were charming friendly and really helpful. The whole family enjoyed it but especially our 2 year old. Plenty to do. Highly recommend it .
  • Inadequate disabled access and parking, very hilly. The good is that the cafe is excellent and all the staff seem friendly and professional. The animal based activities are pretty good too.
  • This is a great day out!! Loads to do, friendly helpful staff & always something going on! Highly recommended!! Make sure you stay for the sheep racing - it's absolutely fantastic!!
