Devon is perhaps the most sought after location for holidaying in the UK, especially as more families are deciding to take in the beauty and heritage of a holiday in England, rather than go abroad.
Visit Escot Farm
If getting into nature and meeting a host of farmyard animals seems like a fun prospect for a family jaunt this summer, then the award-winning Escot Farm in East Devon is a prime destination.
Features include a world-class maze, birds of prey with their summertime displays, otters and wild boar, unique woodland drop slide, Saxon Village, indoor play barn, red squirrels, Termite Pavilion, seahorses and forest play areas.
There’s enough to keep your entire family thoroughly entertained a woodland playground, fire making, pond dipping, a swamp walk and then settle down for the night to a wholesome barbecue.
Go Fossil Hunting
East Devon is home to the Jurassic coast, a location that allows fossil hunting and a host of other informative activities. Take your family on a historic day out to search among this classic world heritage site.
Milky Way adventure park
Located in north Devon, the Milky Way adventure park is 85,000 sq feet of inclusive family activities and the perfect destination all year round.
This expansive activity centre is home to the North Devon Bird of Prey Centre and features opportunities for archery, laser target shooting or golf.
If you’re traveling with smaller children or infants, there is still plenty to do – lost in the maze or play in the sand pits, mini tractor rides as well as the The Milky Way Train.
There is even something for the thrill seekers among you, as the Milky Way adventure park features Devon’s tallest, fastest and longest roller coaster, the Cosmic Typhoon. If you’re visiting with some younger guests, the Big Apple mini rollercoaster is a perfect alternative. All the rides are included in the entrance fee.
