Family Activities & Attractions​

From adventure parks to alpaca walking and ponies to pottery, there are plenty of indoor and outdoor activities for families with children of all ages. The Attractions and Days Trips pages have additional information on things to do in the area.


Alpaca Walking Devon

If you fancy a change from walking the dog, how about walking an alpaca? The Woolley Animals Alpaca Walking & Farm Park is just 15 minutes from the hotel and has a farm park with goats, sheep and pigs, as well as the unique alpaca walking.  Opening times are variable and they only open at weekends in the off-season, so please check their website for details and prices. Sorry, but dogs are not allowed.

One of two large adventure parks in North Devon,  The Big Sheep Amusement Park is a great day out for the family with rides, entertainment and petting zoo.

Attraction details, opening time and tickets are available on their website.
