Daylesford Farm Shop is a gorgeous place based in Kingham Gloucestershire.
We spent the day here in April and returned again in May 2017 for their summer festival. Sadly the sun didn’t shine the second time around but it was still a fun packed day for the family!
It’s always difficult to think of things to do with babies because they get bored at home but also aren’t active enough to take advantage of alternative activities. I’ve discovered that Nandy just loves being out and about regardless of where we are – his head is always flicking from left to right taking in all of his surroundings like a meerkat!
When we visited the first time the weather was nice enough so we decided to take advantage and buy some of the gorgeous organic produce from the farm shop to eat and set up a picnic in the field. We did seem to be the only ones doing this though, but it was so beautiful we couldn’t resist! We had cheese, pickles, olives, fresh bread, elderflower ham and sausage roll, plus sundried tomatoes and homemade potato salad – it was lush siting in the sun and snacking on the food.
We saw cows and sheep, no pigs. We took a walk over railway bridges and streams, through fields and explored where the beehives and blossom trees were.
Unfortunately the Farm isn’t open to the public which was slightly disappointing.
Obviously with the weather being so glorious that helped massively. I did a brushlettering course in the herb garden room whilst hubby explore further with Nandy and relaxed with a hot chocolate in their cafe!
All in all we had a fab day on both occasions and if you are local to Gloucester it’s definitely worth a visit on a hot or sunny day!
