Lovely visit checking it out for our grandsons visit. Great prices as most farms are ridiculously expensive. Lovely grounds for woodland walks and plenty of places for a picnic. It was so hit most animals were asleep!

I think it was nothing to go in but you then had to pay for the fruit you picked which was weighed at and prices in the main building before you leave
