Voted Farma’s Best Pick Your Own in the UK last year, Lotmead Farm is the perfect place for a relaxing summer’s day out for all the family.
Established in the 1950’s as a traditional dairy farm, Lotmead opened its gates to pick your own visitors in the mid 1980’s 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.
Lotmead is FREE to visit with plenty of free parking. Whether you choose to spend your money on our fabulous ‘pick your own’ strawberries, fresh fruit and vegetables or fantastic on-site facilities, it all adds up to great deal of fun and brilliant value.
We’re open from late May until October. Our opening times may vary, particularly early and late in the season, so before you set off, double-check our times by calling our hotline on 01793 790137.
NEW FOR 2017
You’ll notice some great new additions at Lotmead this year.
Our Children’s Play Area has fast become the centrepiece of our family attractions. This year we’ve redesigned the layout and added a climbable tyre tower and the most handsome giant bee, as well as a new tractor for (pretend) farming adventures.
The Children’s Play Area is now included in our Family Pass – details can be found on our ‘Lots to Do’ page.
Pick Your Own strawberries and soft fruits now carry a redeemable prepayment to enter the picking fields. Read more on our ‘Pick Your Own’ page.
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, the Children’s Play Area with its climbing frames, swings and slides and of course the farm itself with the Dairy Parlour.
