Pennywell Farm

Once you’ve spotted some of the wildlife on the moorland pay a visit to Pennywell Farm where you get up close with a number of farm animals. It’s a great day out for all the family. Climb all over the tractors, help with feeding time of the sheep and goats and cuddle up with their famous miniature pigs. Plus if you tell them you’re staying at Beverley Holidays you can claim a FREE Pennywell Pal soft toy when you arrive.
