On arrival we provide a complimentary cream tea with homemade preserves, made with fruit from the hedgerows on the farm. Tea, coffee, sugar and milk are also provided. When you have settled in why not fire up the BBQ and crack open a drink? A large grill is provided that fits atop the fire pit, and we supply wood, kindling and firelighters together with proper BBQ tools. If you would like to buy some of Waterhay Farm's own steaks for the BBQ just speak to Andy.
