A bone fide all-rounder, Cobbs Farm Shop has a butcher, fishmonger, delicatessen, florist, cheese counter – even a vineyard. The brightly lit shop has a country chic feel and scours the surrounds for the best local produce – cured meat, pork pies, salads, A-grade cuts of meat, all kinds of veg, and home-grown, Alder Ridge sparkling wine. You could do your weekly shop here and pick up gorgeous gifts at the same time, from handmade soap to ceramics and toys.
The chic café with leafy green plants, wooden tables and cream walls sells delicious breakfasts and lunches that vary from light bites to filling one-pot meals and caters for dietary needs with a seasonally changing menu showcasing homegrown produce.
Family fun is found in the pick-your-own fields, where you can pluck soft fruit in season, and kids will love the play barn, giant games and seasonal events such as pumpkin carving, open-air cinema and bird of prey displays.
