Last of the summer strawberries

farm fresh strawberries

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.

  1. We love Hendrewennol too - especially the maze - though we haven't been in a while - you've reminded me we need to rectify that! #countrykids

  2. This was one activity we missed this summer :( Absolutely love picking strawberries and to think we have one farm nearby. Just didn't have the time. Oh well, this will be one-up on our list of things-to-do next summer! Love your photos btw #countrykids.

  3. We also missed this this Summer. They will have to pick their own pumpkins instead! That looks lovely and the maze sounds great fun. :-) x

  4. Aw, really love the pictures! We've never been strawberry picking with C, but must really make sure we do next summer :) x

  5. We love picking fruit, the lovely mild weather has spun it out this year too. It is one of my favourite days too, lovely to watch the children enjoying fruit straight from the bushes. I have a feeling the storms coming through now will see us waving good bye to the summer fruits till next year. Thank you for sharing your day on Country Kids.

  6. We are still to try fruit picking! Always nicer to enjoy places after the Summer rush. #Country Kids

  7. Can you believe we have still not gone strawberry picking with Wilf! next summer for sure x

  8. Oh this has reminded me that we totally forgot to go strawberry picking this year! x

  9. Aww, this makes me sad to say goodbye to summer, even though it's long gone now!! Lovely simple days make for happy memories :)

  10. I can't believe that the fruit picking season is behind us...where did that time go! Gorgeous pics! xx
