Try not to eat like the pigs
While travelling past Exeter on our way to Cornwall, we noticed a roadside sign that was advertising a cafe called Oinkers. In need of a break from driving, we thought we'd follow it to see what the cafe had to offer.
We drove through a town called Cheriton Bishop and after around two miles, turned into a narrow lane. Luckily we didn't have to travel very far along the lane as there was only room for one car at a time, but we soon came to the cafe.
Upon entering the cafe, we were pleasantly surprised, it's a bright and airy cafe with windows that go down to the floor. They have a small children's play area in the corner and offer an array of activity packs that can be used at the tables.
In the outside area, they have created a mini petting zoo type area with goats, horses, pigs, sheep, chickens and ducks, and it looked like they were planning to add more as they had several empty pens. There was a large tub filled with feed and buckets so that you can feed the goats and sheep.
With it being an easy to get to location and a relaxing place to visit, we'd happily take the small divert off the A30 next time we're passing through as it makes for an enjoyable rest stop when travelling through Devon to Cornwall.
