The Big Sheep
Lottie’s favourite day out, we have been twice this year (2009) and still not found everything. Not cheap and at least an hour’s drive but for us it is worth it. Animals to feed and pet in the barn, train and tractor rides and an array of slides to satisfy a large age range. Humorous and informative demonstrations and events such as the Sheep Grand National in the various indoor and outdoor arenas help provide constant entertainment. The Jumping Pillows are great fun for all ages (parents too) as are the pedal go-carts. There is a battlefield combat zone, high wire course, chair-o-planes ride and mountain boarding for the more adventurous. Pony rides, trampolines and various mechanical rides. Some things cost extra but you could still have a great day out if you confined yourselves to the inclusive stuff.
The Big Sheep is very easy to find, with plenty of parking, some kennels (locks available from reception) and a wide choice of food from burgers and cakes to fruit and homemade soup depending on which café you choose.
