This is a wonderful opportunity to take a tractor trailer ride into the deer park to admire the Castle's surrounding natural rugged beauty from the banks of the Exe estuary. The deer park is home to around 600 fallow deer as well as other wildlife. You will learn about their habitat and the history of the Castle through a running commentary and see an exceptional view of the Castle from what was originally the front entrance.
The trip takes about 35 minutes, running at a leisurely pace to allow visitors to take some unique photos and relax in what has to be one of the most stunning settings in Devon. A real treat!
The pick up point is opposite the Welcome Hut, by the lake and the trailer can hold a maximum of 45 people seated.
The Deer Park Safari is available Wednesdays and Thursdays all season and daily during the Devon school holidays. Also available for Groups to pre-book all season. It is subject to the weather & ground conditions. A small extra charge applies. Tickets can be purchased from the Welcome Hut.
Family (2+2): £8.50
The tractor/trailer is accessible to visitors with wheelchairs and pushchairs.
