Mixed feelings in our family about this 'day'trip. My husband raised his eyebrows when he say the entry cost. Great if you have small kids and they are going to use the play facility all day, but for two adults and a teen, not so...More

Part of a Shearings excursion. We had the Tractor tour which is not for everyone as it is a bone shaking ride. Don’t go on if you have back issues. The buildings were unattended and honey tasting due at 10.30 nobody turned up to demonstrate.

Entry is free to the shop and the outside areas including playpark. You can pay for a tour but I can’t remember how much it is. We didn’t have time for the tour. Sorry no more detail.
