Attraction details
Owner description: A seasonal farm shop, cafe and play area on a working strawberry farm, just 1 mile south of St Andrews. We are open mid-May to mid-September, 10 am to 6 pm. Serving teas, coffees, home baking, fresh sandwiches and home-made soup. Freshly-picked strawberries from the farm and other local produce and deli items are available for sale. There is ample parking, and a free children's play area, all with spectacular views of St Andrews bay.

This is a lovely spot,with great views over St Andrews and a well appointed play area for children,as others have mentioned. We like to come for tea and scones,served with excellent home made jam,but of course the main attraction has to be the strawberries!
Now we can have berries most of the year,but nothing beats the early summer crop.
A special mention for the charming and friendly staff,always smiling!

Thank Bonzorino

This is a lovely place to go for lunch or coffee & cake. It is primarily a fruit farm but they have a good sized cafe which has seating inside & out. There is also a large outdoor area where they have animals and is very good for families with children. But the best thing is the quality of their fruit and home baking which you can buy in their shop together with lots of other goodies. Their strawberries are the best i have ever tasted and the strawberry tarts are to die for my husband & i always visit when we are in St Andrews. On our most recent visit we had cream teas which were delicious , home made strawberry jam and fresh cream. I would recommend a visit if you are in the area.

Read about this place on Trip Advisor and glad we dropped by for a coffee and scone. Lovely views over St Andrews with plenty outside space for people with kids to play and enjoy the facilities. Some fab goodies to buy, if your not watching your weight or you can endulge in fresh fruit if you are being good. So we were bad and had large scones with fresh jam and cream. Fab. Well worth stopping after wandering around the town to get a bit of fresh air and a bite to eat. Will be back.

The first thing which strikes you is the wonderful view over the town of St Andrews and over St Andrews Bay. There is a great area for children to play in. There are football goal posts (take a ball if you go with kids), straw bales to climb on, swings, seesaw, huge wooden fort, and tractors for children to sit in. There are animals to look at and a lovely picnic area with tables and chairs. Many places with these facilities charge for children but here the play area is free. There is an excellent shop with top quality produce, local fruit and vegetables. The home baking is top class, local ice cream, great scones and coffee. You can sit inside or outside to enjoy the food. The only thing which was not quite as good as we had hoped was the strawberry milk shake (lacked any flavour). The staff were helpful and pleasant.

Took my 3 children here for a afternoon out. Had a really great time. Our children love the play area which they can play for free while I sat outside drinking coffee and eating cake. What more do you want!
Friendly staff highly recommended
Thank you
