Our award-winning farm shop & deli is overflowing with lovely produce. You will find our own highland beef, free-range eggs and award-winning fruit ice cream as well as locally produced food and pick your own fruit and vegetables in season. There's lots going on - why not browse the craft shops or visit our play area and farm animals? Our Farm Nature Trail is very popular too, but make sure you bring your wellies!

Delicious food from an extensive menu for breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea. There is much that is locally sourced (probably from the shop) and the cakes are homemade. Whatever meal you go for you will find ot hard to go home without a cake!

Lovely farm shop with a wide range of produce and gifts. And of course their award winning ice cream is available to buy, which I highly recommend. Worth a visit.

A random Google search for 'Breakfast on our way to Woodbridge' which turned out to be an excellent breakfast. Very very popular, beautiful setting, and ended up being one of the best breakfasts we have had. There are lots of little individual shops on site...More
