PICK YOUR OWN STRAWBERRIES, FRUIT & VEGETABLES • SUMMER FAYRES • FREE TO VISIT

Lotmead Farm is a National Award winning, family friendly activity farm just outside Swindon and the perfect place to be for a relaxing summer’s day out. 

Known for our fabulous ‘pick your own’ strawberries, fresh fruit and vegetables, you are welcome to come and visit us FOR FREE any time during the week from 9.30am throughout the summer months until October.  Opening times may vary across the season, so please call our 24 hour hotline on 01793 790137 for the latest times.

Established in the 1950s as a traditional dairy farm, Lotmead opened its gates to pick your own visitors in the mid-1980s and has since grown to include some great family attractions and themed events plus the everyday activities of a real working farm with all sorts of fascinating things to discover and learn.

LOTS TO DO
We’ve acres of space to run around with lots to see and do. There’s a Nature Trail that leads to a small lake, a Small Animal Enclosure especially for younger children, a Play Area with climbing frames, swings and slides and of course the farm itself which includes watching the cows being milked every afternoon from our visitor gallery.

You can also enjoy some great Themed Weekend Events before the school summer holidays – check out our ‘Events’ page for details and times.

PICK YOUR OWN
As well as strawberries, you’ll find a great choice of seasonal soft fruits and vegetables ready for picking and normally always cheaper than typical supermarket prices.

We are also very proud to be the current FARMA ‘Pick Your Own Farm of the Year’ which is a great honour and endorsement to the quality and choice of our produce.

FARM STORE
Our well-stocked Farm Store sells fresh local produce along with natural dairy foods, jams, fruits and vegetables. We also serve a tasty variety of hot and cold snacks, beverages, salads and sandwiches all freshly prepared each day as well as home baked cakes, ice cream, soft drinks and juices. Conveniently, the store overlooks the children’s play area where you can relax outside with a bite to eat and a cup of tea whilst keeping an eye on the kids as they play.

DOGS WELCOME
Please feel free to bring your dog to Lotmead provided they remain on a leash throughout their visit. For dog owners, our Dog & Duck Show weekend event on 25/26 June will be of special interest with amazing exhibitions, training and advice.

CAMPERS/MOTOR HOMES WELCOME
If you come in a Camper or Motor Home you are always welcome to stay overnight without charge unless you hook up to electricity. What could be better than to have freshly picked strawberries for breakfast!

CHRISTMAS TREES
Just a quick reminder, although we close at the end of the summer season, we re-open (hoorah) from late November until 23 December selling Christmas Trees in a variety of different traditional shapes and sizes.
