Digby’s Devon day adventure to Pennywell farm
05 June 2019
There is no one at Cofton who loves Devon more than our very own Coftasaurous dinosaur Digby. So it was no surprise that when we were asked to take part in the annual character meeting at Pennywell Farm to celebrate Devon, he roared at the opportunity.
Even better that Digby got to catch up with some of his favourite furry friends from all around the region.
Here is what Digby had to say about his amazing day at Pennywell. Please excuse any spelling errors, Digby is only a 9 year old dinosaur and his claws aren’t always keyboard friendly.
Digby’s Write up
My day at Pennywell was very
exiting exciting, we started the day in the theter theatre, where we first met our friends. Jay and Holly from the entertainments team at Cofton had to help me with the stairs are my feet are a little on the large size. There was so many children smiling and waving, it was a lot of fun.
We were all introduced to the children one by one, which was great because I got to tell the children about all my favourite things, especially how much I love Jaffa Cakes.
The children came over to talk to me and hug me, some were staying at Cofton and I remembered from the Digby dance studio.
After the meeting in the
theter theatre we were invited for a tractor ride around the farm. It was a little tricky to get onto the trailer, but the ride was a lot of fun.
favorite favourite part of the day was when me, the Cofton team and my friends got to meet and cuddle some of the animals.
Even Jay, Holly and Hannah got involved.
The day ended with a
yumy yummy cream tea and some fun around the farm. I had mine with cream first, because that’s the Devon way.
We hope you all had a wonderful Devon Day

I just want to say how impressed my fellow Motorhomers and Caravaners were with the welcome and service we received during our stay. Staff in the office were polite and helpful at all times. Scott the restaurant manager was most accommodating when I enquired about reserving space for 25 to 30 of us for lunch after a walk. The service in the restaurant was speedy the food hot and varied. We were very pleased with the standards. Staff in the restaurant were cheerful and polite and helped make our meal most enjoyable. We had such a good time that we will be returning again next year for our Xmas Rally.
The best holiday park we've been to in our motorhome. Our children aged 2 and 4 loved it. Great facilities, entertainment and activities in one of the best parts of Devon!
Delicious fish and chips, friendly and helpful staff and delightful woodland.

We usually camp 3 times a year and hire a caravan after the Christmas break at Cofton, and will continue to do so. We thoroughly recommend staying there. Great for families or just the 2 of you.
