Pennywell Farm Voted Devon’s Best Family Attraction!

The summer holidays are here and it’s time to start planning a few day trips and adventures with the children. Number one on the list of places to go should be Devon’s best family attraction.

Pennywell Farm has just been given this top accolade in the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2022.

With over 40 visitor attractions across Devon, it is a hotly contested category but Pennywell Farm took the official win as Devon’s best family attraction.

For those who don’t know, Muddy Stilettos is the biggest lifestyle website in the UK, outside of London. Started by national journalist Hero Brown it now covers 28 counties, including Devon.

The Muddy Stilettos Awards were launched by Hero nine years ago and this year saw 75,000 businesses nominated and 765,000 votes cast across the Muddy counties. Businesses don’t pay to enter, the nominations come from readers, who vote for their favourites in each of 27 categories. From there, a shortlist of up to five finalists in every category is drawn up for each county. Voting begins again to find out the winners.

Pennywell is home to hundreds of cute and cuddly animals for visitors to meet.

The fact that the public took the time to show their support and vote, is a testament to the attraction’s reputation and appreciated by the Murray family who started the farm over 30 years ago.

Piggy cuddles, a favourite activity at the award-winning attraction.

Pig racing is just one of over 15 hands on activities that happen daily.

Founder, Chris Murray says:

We would like to give a huge thanks to all those who voted! It’s an awesome and quite humbling feeling, to think that so many people wanted to show their support and love for Pennywell. We are absolutely thrilled to have won the Best Family Attraction Award. All the animals will get an extra treat to celebrate, and we’ll be raising a glass to our wonderful team who give it 110% every day to ensure we deliver an outstanding experience to each and every visitor.

Pennywell is famous for the hands-on animal experience that visitors enjoy.

All the winners from the counties will go forward to the first-ever National Muddy Awards which will take place this autumn. So, keep an eye out, and fingers crossed, for Pennywell Farm, which could be crowned best family attraction in the country.

Pennywell is open 7 days a week and tickets can be booked online at www.pennywellfarm.co.uk
