Pennywell has the friendliest animals in Devon and the 2020 season will have more animals to meet than ever before with our new and improved Miniature Pony Centre.
We’re expanding the number of equines on the farm this year so you can get really hands on with not just our miniature ponies but miniature donkeys, heavy horses and our latest addition, Connery who has retired to Pennywell after a career in the Household Cavalry.
