Have you ever fed a red squirrel? Touched one? At Totnes Rare Breeds they will (literally) throw themselves at you for a peanut. What began as a collection of farmyard rare breeds has gradually extended. You won’t find smaller pygmy goats, or friendlier owls. Alongside these, you can also get close to the endangered wildlife of the English countryside, making this much more than just a petting farm. Touch a hedgehog’s prickly spines and learn how they use them, or cuddle a guinea pig. Be sure of a warm welcome at the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm.

About the area
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.
