NEW for 2020

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.

We want visitors and locals to know that you can still have a close up and personal experience with miniature ponies in Devon.
Come and cuddle our family of sociable miniature donkeys in their picturesque paddock with stunning Dartmoor views. Mum, dad and two foals are always keen to make new friends. They were collected from France at the end of the summer and have settled in remarkably well with their English improving on a daily basis.
