No Cornish Holiday is Complete Without a Trip to Diggerland

If you are heading South West with your little ones and looking for something special to do, why not stop off at Diggerland for fun and educational days out in Devon? With 250 parking spaces, 15 coach parking spaces, 10 disabled parking spaces and a helicopter landing pad, the park can accommodate everyone. It is also easy to get to. Even at rush hour, it can be reached from Cornwall in less than two hours.

You could even save time by stopping off at Diggerland on the way to your Cornish destination, to get the most out of all the great attractions. And if you need any more incentive, just think, a day out in the fresh air having fun with the family will be a huge boost to your well-being too.


There are rides for everyone at Diggerland. For under-fives, there are Little Tikes Wheelz play zones, where the little ones can play with their favourite digger toys in the sandpits. Older children can ride on the Skyshuttle or experience the thrill of the Dig-a-Round. The Groundshuttle will show your digger loving kids the true power of these machines, scooping them up into the air and taking them for a ride.

Spindizzy - Days Out in Devon


Unlike other theme parks, Diggerland has more than just passive rides. It is well-established that children learn through experience and exploration. While there is plenty to explore in the Cornish countryside, taking a diversion to Diggerland allows kids to get hands on experience of driving in a safe environment.

From JCBs and dumper trucks, to police SUVs, tractors and trains, there are all manner of vehicles for your little ones. Diggerland provides you with the opportunity to fully switch off on holiday while giving your kids the chance to let off steam by joyriding in the 4x4s. The dirt tracks offer adrenaline filled fun in a safe environment.

How to Get Here

The South West is home to one of the greatest road trips in the UK. From the gorgeous coastline to the Exmoor national park, you’re never short of wonderful sites and incredible days out in Devon. Getting to Diggerland, then, is not only easy, but enjoyable. From Bristol and Exeter, Diggerland is easily reachable via the M5, taking junction 27 or 28. Alternatively, get the train to Tiverton Parkway, where it is only a five mile taxi ride to the park.

Cornwall has many attractions, but the nearby Diggerland should not be missed. There are activities for everyone from tiny children to their grandparents. For thrill seeking older children, take the rare opportunity to drive a car or digger at speed. Diggerland is accessible and exciting for everybody.

As you would expect, the Devon park has all the same rides & drives as our other three UK parks, including: Spindizzy, Mini-Tractors, Groundshuttle and Dig-a-Round, as well as Go-Karts and Dodgems. We also run school trips in Devon if you are a school and looking for fantastic days out in Devon.
