Devon Things to do with kids

Devon is a brilliant place to take the kids and it's not just about the beaches although I have listed my favourites.  Here is our favourite things to do with kids in Devon.

Paignton Zoo - 2,000 creatures, six animal habitats, Jungle Express train, indoor play areas. A great family day out. My daughter loves the Red Panda! so cute.

Cockington Country Park - Excellent cream teas & large grounds to let kids run free.

Cockington Village

Brixham Harbour - Lovely for a wander.

Bigbury-on-sea Beach - Huge clean beach.

Goodrington Sands - One of our favourites not as busy as other beaches. Has a pub, small arcade, shop, cafĂ©, playground, rock pools, beach huts, beautiful beach & you can watch the steam train go past or hop on & travel to Dartmouth.  Train is a bit pricey but lovely.

Paignton Pier & Geopark - The Geopark is a fab outdoor play area that caters for most ages.

Canonteign Falls - Amazing 70 metre waterfall & lovely walks. There's also a play area for the kids.  Its just beautiful.

Pennywell Farm - Hundreds of friendly animals, play areas and games. Hands on activity every half an hour and 4 FREE rides. We loved the goats.

  1. some of our favourites from when the children were small in here. We loved Pennywell Farm, ironic that we now live on our own farm #bigpinklink

  2. I haven't been to any of these, so it's fab to have some recommendations!! We've had our family holiday for the year, but will be planning some day trips/possible weekends away, and we usually go to Devon, as it's only 2 hours away, and is so beautiful! I love a good recommendation for a beach, especially a quiet one!! Thanks for sharing with #bigpinklink

    1. Goodrington Sands is a fab quieter beach can definitely recommend. X

  3. I don't think I have ever been to Devon?! Sounds like a great family holiday destination xx
