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.

I truly adored this event, I wasn't expecting it to be so wonderful! Me and my daughter enjoyed the dinky train, lots of delicious food and I was absolutely smitten with the orchards. I will definitely keep an eye open for future fairs! Well done x

I had been looking forward to this event. we came from north London. overall I enjoyed it. there was a nice country fayre feel about it (including the home made cakes and teas) - it so reminded me of my child hood and church fetes. It was fascinating to try all the cherry varieties, which was really why I wanted... More

Today we attended the Cherry Fair. The weather was lovely and we enjoyed our ride on the miniature railway. Cherry tasting and purchase had been moved to the shop and progress in the queue was very. Parking very good as was the Solley's cherry ice cream. Overall quite expensive to get in and separate fees for the other attractions such... More
