Exmoor Zoo is nestled in the countryside of North Devon, and its friendly atmosphere makes it the perfect animal park for children to enjoy. The zoo prides itself on enclosures that enable visitors the best views of the animals, and the winding, natural layout of the park makes this one of the county’s most informal attractions. Those brave enough can even join in the animal handling sessions...would you hold a spider in your hands?
Who’s heard of the foreboding Exmoor beast? Well prepare to come face to face with it, as Exmoor Zoo’s many cats include the mysterious black creature often sighted roaming the moor. Other animals include puma, wolves, tapir, sand cats and many more – and the zoo’s carefully planted plants and trees mean it feels as natural as possible even while you wander the park. There are regular chances to feed some of the animals too, and the wallabies in particular are always more than happy to accept their meal from a new friend.
There are feeding talks and shows too, so this is a great attraction for animal lovers as you’ll learn all about them as you enjoy your day. Close to Barnstaple, Exmoor Zoo is ahaven from the hustle and bustle and a lovely day out for the whole family.
