Great for: Cheese lovers, wet weather, walks in the countryside, seeing real life cows.
If you love cheese like our family does then this is a real gem. It’s in the beautiful countryside between Bristol and Bath (important note: Apple Maps does not take you to quite the right place so try Google Maps or good old fashioned paper maps!) There’s a lovely cafe where you can get delicious cakes, coffee, cheese platters or toasties, ice creams or milk shakes. There’s a really cute, well designed play area outside suitable for all ages and seating upstairs with a fab play area and a view of the cheese being made. My kids were fascinated. I have to mention the swish toilet there too. Always a bonus.
We live near Bristol Zoo and have membership so my kids are much more familiar with lions and penguins then cows and horses so we thoroughly enjoyed a stroll around dodging the cow pats and seeing the pretty countryside. We just head off randomly to look around but their website has a map of a circular walk nearby.
Please note although the cafe is open at the weekends, I don’t think any cheese is produced then so you won’t get to see it in action. Still worth a visit though!
