First visit of the year today, can understand the new £2 pp charge for the strawberry picking as I always saw people eating a lot more than they paid for! We paid our £6 to get in, picked £13.50's worth and then paid £7.50 difference....More

Lotmead is a great place to go and pick fresh berries, particularly strawberries, fill your buckets up for a reasonable price and let the kids play in the park afterwards. Only criticism is the price of food and drink on site, but that's the same...More

Easy to find, plenty of parking. Good kids play area and a few animals to see. Strawberries were the best I have tasted in years and way superior to supermarket ones. Lots of picnic benches for lunch. The only improvement could be to make it...More

Came here for a strawberry picking session and the berries had an excellent flavour and very good fun, always love coming to a farm to pick your own. Small children's play area.

Been coming to Lotmead for years and never disappointed with the produce. The staff is friendly and always happy to help. If you want fresh locally produced organic produce then Lotmead is the place to go, far better than supermarkets. I even get my Christmas...More
