There's lots going on - why not browse the craft shops or visit our play area and farm animals? Our Farm Nature Trail is very popular too, but make sure you bring your wellies!

A lovely cafe with good service and excellent food. I recommend you book as we have been disappointed on several occasions because they are fully booked, or have a large group and "cannot offer any hot food" to anybody else. Frustrating and disappointing, but if...More

Delicious food from an extensive menu for breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea. There is much that is locally sourced (probably from the shop) and the cakes are homemade. Whatever meal you go for you will find ot hard to go home without a cake!
