Strawberry picking at Cammas Hall

On Thursday we went to Cammas Hall http://www.chff.co.uk/ for Strawberry picking, a very quintessentially British activity, and something on my June wish list.

Unfortunately the weather on Thursday was  typical british summer time and was overcast and windy, but that didn’t stop us.

When we arrived Miss Chloe clocked the big outside playground and neither me or Mr D felt brave enough to try to tell her that we would come back to the playground later, so off we went to the playground!

In the play area there is stuff for all age ranges from a massive slide with tunnels, swings and a sand pit and an under 5 enclosed area. Miss Chloe would have happily stayed in there all day.

Apart from the promise of fresh strawberries I admit it was the yummy cakes that had me drawn to Cammas Hall, so after we finally managed to coax Miss Chloe out of the play area we headed inside for a slice of cake and a coffee, and boy this was worth the trip alone.

Mr D had his favourite, carrot cake while I had to have a slice of warm chocolate fudge cake with cream, the fact it was only 11.am didn’t bother me in the slightest!

The café area was in a lovely wooden barn and as well as cakes they had a full hot and cold menu to choose from as well as fresh farm produce you could purchase.

After Chloe had one more play in the playground we finally headed off to pick some strawberries. Chloe only wanted to pick green ones as green is her favourite colour! There was plenty of strawberries to pick and we easily filled to baskets, and may have done a little taste test on our way round, well it would be rude not too!

The only thing I would say is that the strawberries do work out expensive. For 2 punnets although filled to the top, still cost almost £8.

It is a lovely place to visit and would like to return when the weather is nicer to enjoy the play ground area a bit more as well as take part in the nature trail.

  1. This looks like a great place to visit since it has a play area and a great cafe as well as the strawberries! Its handy that they are in a poly tunnel (so you can still pick if its raining!). I imagine it means that the strawberries are lovely and sweet too.
