Affordable Mini Golf, free farm animals, great food and huge fresh berry ice cream. Pick your own berries if you are inclined. Definitely a must if you are visiting the area.

Yummy fruit ice cream with very generous portions and a great variety of berries on offer. We didn’t eat off the menu but it looked pretty good with your usual cafe fayre.
