Nice day out for families, and sell lovely ice cream- with a great variety of flavours available. Especially good for those with smaller children who will enjoy being around the farm yard.

An entry charge of £3 has been introduced for access to the farm park. The only new attraction was an inflatable bouncy pillow which the children loved. The rest of the farm park was disappointing as very few animals were to be seen. We purchased...More

The main reason to visit to Bluebells is their own produced Ice Cream its lovely and plenty of choices, but beware of the large queues, especially on a sunny day. Other things to do at site once you have finished it.
