Taverners is nestled in the beautiful Haldon Valley, with stunning views that look up to the impressive Castle of Haldon Belvedere, and the farm fits right into the picturesque landscape.
In the Summer Meadow, you can explore the farm, meeting our free range chickens, calves, and pet sheep Tibby. There's fun available for all ages, as children can play on the swings, see saws and in the newly built adventure play ground just across the river.
An Elephant Maize Maze is planted in the spring to be enjoyed by all in August and September!
The Ice Cream Parlour is the place to taste all the ice cream flavours as well as having a relaxing coffee or a home made cakes or cookies. Set in a renovated courtyard the parlour has seating for 60 customers either around traditional farm house tables or on our orange funky stools.
Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
Just one more thing to add......I indulged in a Mrs T homemade scotch egg - award winning, no less! And I have to say, totally scrummy.... And it was nice to see that Mrs T was also working there too! Everyone was very welcoming. Worth getting another star!
Visited here for the first time on 26th April 2013 and was pleasantly surprised by quality of the venue. I took my 7 month old daughter with me in the pram and paid for annual membership (£10). She loved watching the chickens (which you can buy feed for, for an extra 50p I think - members only). The terrain was a little bumpy, but managed it ok in the pram. Went to the play park before heading to the ice cream parlour! As I had paid for membership I was able to redeem my £10 in ice cream (so my £2.50 ice cream was 50p and 2 points off my 10 point card).
Nappy changing facilities were really good, parking next to all the amenities, animals close enough to touch - I thought it was a little gem of a place and will definitely be visiting again soon to redeem my 8 points on ice cream!!
Just one minor point though - there was a baby swing in the mini play area, but it would have been good to see a baby swing in the Summer meadow too. Then it would get 5 stars :)
