Absolutely love this place come with family regularly and it is totally worth the £3 entry free. Food is amazing! Much higher quality than you would expect from a farm, if in doubt GO!

Bluebell's is fantastic. A wide range of animals, grounds to walk around, brilliant ice cream, lovely tea room, and very nice events are often happening. There is an entrance fee but it's completely worth it! Remember your wellies.

We've been here a few times over the past summer. They have the most amazing, freshly made ice cream in so many different flavours, definitely one for kids. Lovely for lunch and a short walk after to see the animals, definitely returning!
