Visited here at the weekend with all the family. Unfortunately due to the weather there is very limited fruit. There are no strawberries at all and very few blackberries. There were enough raspberries to fill one container full. We stayed here for about 20 minutes...More

Visited here several times as the kids enjoying strawberries. Is a great experience for them but be warned this place is expensive and overpriced. I understand businesses need to make money to cover their overheads but the prices charged here are excessive.

On the day I visited this farm Morrisons had srawberries on offer at £3.30 a kilo, other supermarkets at £3.70. Whetstone charges £4.20 self pick and £5.50 picked / kilo Next year I will check the website BEFORE I visit.
