Having never been before I did not know what to expect but we have had a great day. Kelly was fantastic and inspirational with both the children and adults. Myself and 2 children aged 4 and 6 have learnt a lot about what Brogdale is about and the mini beasts that we met. Excellent value for money. We will definitely... More

Reasonable entrance fee and good parking to see the large display of apple varieties from the National Fruit Collection - apple pie eating competitions, apple display of over 400 varieties including over 100 you can taste and buy. But not just apples and other... More

Where else in the UK can you see the entire country's fruit tree collection. Today's Apple festival highlights the fantastic work they do. Got to try loads of apples and pears I'd never heard of AND got to taste test new varieties and give my opinion. A great way to interest the future generations in British produce! And we bought...

Possibly not one for the kids as this is essentially a collection of fruit trees (although they do have a great miniature railway which runs through the estate), but if you enjoy nature and want to experience something different, make sure you go when the apple trees are in blossom. Alternatively, try to go when they have one of their... More

The farm offers a great family day out. We've only been on event days and had great fun. I wouldn't pay the on the door entrance fee, but a groupon deal makes it great value. My biggest tip is get there early especially if the weather is favourable. The tractor ride around the tree collection is worth doing - our... More

We attended the "beastie day" today at brogdale farm, I think it cost about £6 or £7 for a child ticket and the event ran from 10am for the day. The children loved catching the bugs and seeing the bug roadshow, also doing the arts and crafts. Kelly was brilliant with all the children and a really lovely person, couldn't... More

Having purchased tickets via groupon £8 for two my friend and I visited brogdale. Me personally never been to brogdale but was looking forward to seeing what was on offer. Thankfully it was a nice sunny day. Plenty of car parking spaces. Like with other reviews we felt that there wasn't a lot of goods that involved cherries. We thoroughly... More

Lovely place to have a break something to eat and drink. Food was a little boring but maybe it was our choices at the time.

As well as the fruit farm and events held there is a cute miniature train attraction, good home cooked food restaurant/cafe and interesting retails units selling great produce. Very friendly atmosphere possibly not the place for teenagers though! Take note though that there are usually fees if they are running an event such as the cider or cherry festival.
