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.

I have a lot of fond memories from when I was a child here. Picking your own fruits here Is a must. I took my children although it was towards the end of season so fruits weren't great we loved it.
