Thank you for taking the time to review Swithens Farm. So glad you always enjoy your visits. Perhaps you might want to come during December when Santa will be in his grotto on a weekend.

Very disappointed with the place. Run down, tired and over priced. Much better farms locally and I suggest a major investment is needed. Only positive is friendly staff
