Our View

Just off the A38 and a mile south of Buckfastleigh, Pennywell Farm is well-known for its cuddly miniature pigs and appeals to youngsters who want to bottle-feed goat kids and lambs, collect hen eggs and watch ferret racing. Grown-ups can hitch a ride on the tractor and trailer to take in scenic views across Dartmoor National Park.

About The area

Discover Devon

With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.

Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them. 

Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
