Pennywell Farm

Prepare for a busy day as there’s a different animal activity, show or display every half hour. Begin by zooming around in the Run Rabbit Go Carts or Family train for a group adventure. Next, take a tour of the enclosures and meet hedgehogs, race ferrets or bottle feed greedy little lambs and goats - and much, much more!

You see the clay pigeon flash in front of your eyes... swing the gun... then pull the trigger, and the target is reduced to dust! If you are looking for an exhilarating sport, then clay pigeon shooting is for you!

Here at Shalden Shooting School near Tiverton, we give shooting lessons to suit both clay shots and game shots and cater for shooters of all levels, whether you are a complete novice interested in lessons, or someone who is highly experienced and wants to further refine their skills.
