Now we can travel more locally since the lockdown restrictions have been eased we have been looking for fun family days out! We love Cattows Farm in Leicestershire. We have been here before to do pumpkin picking. Strawberry picking makes a great family day out! We are very excited about our UK staycation this summer!
pick your own farms
Picking your own fruit has been a popular UK day out for years! It is a family tradition to us. I love how it teaches children where their fruit and vegetables come from. It also gets us outside which is so important for our health! We also love how its an affordable family day out apart from paying for your fruit there are not any large expenses for this kind of day trip!
strawberry picking fun!
You will find loads of parking at Cattows Farm. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside. We took our own picnic. There is loads of beautiful spots share a picnic together! Cattows Farm as well as offering take away from their tea room offer delivery and collections of their fruit, veg, fresh produce and cakes.
