So about 3 weeks ago we decided to head to the Vale of Glamorgan and to the lovely Hendrewennol Farm where you can Pick your own fruit - it's been one of those places that was on our must visit list during the summer but actually going just after the schools went back was a great idea as we have the strawberry fields to ourselves. Mr A loved looking for the ripe read strawberries which are one of his favourite fruits ever (he couldn't resist a taste either). After a whole summer of people picking them there was not an abundance of fruit but we still managed to get a good amount and its such a lovely and simple pleasure to pick your own.
The farm also has Wales largest Maze carved into a Corn crop. We were given a sheet of 10 castles to find in the maze and in each mini wooden castle was a stamp and you needed to get all ten stamps to received a little gift at the end. It was so much fun running around the maze with the little man, in the sunshine, enjoying those last few days of summer.
It was one of those simple and perfect days...I am sure we will be visiting this farm again.
