Bluebells at Heaven Farm – lovely place for lunch, tea and/or camping

    The nature walk is great at any time but particularly spectacular in bluebell time.

There is a range of unusual chicken breeds wandering freely, a gift shop and an small organic food shop. The cafe serves really good breakfasts, simple lunches and cream teas so if you are camping one or the other makes a nice change.

I put a bench by a lake in memory of my mother, so I do make at least an annual trip although we live in the South now so we do not pass by anymore.

The bluebell walk is wonderful and if you are camping you could do this early in the morning and enjoy their lovely smell.

Booking is a bit haphazard for camping, you can book by phone, but then basically have to knock on the farmhouse door and catch the farmer’s wife, or find the farmer. The casual atmosphere is part of the charm, it’s basically parking up in a farmer’s field, quiet, clean with a cafe and farm and gift shops etc make it great for a couple of days.

There is also a small site for Camping and Caravan Club members. There are adequate shower and toilet facilities but the latter is shared by the day visitors,  so can get a bit crowded.

There is plenty of daytime parking and is very popular for morning coffee and cream teas.
