Royal Oak Farm is situated near Honiton. From Exeter, it is easily reached by leaving the A30 at the second Honiton junction and following the signs on the left for Cotleigh and Stockland. You will go under a bridge and the farm shop is on this road, well signed when you arrive. See here for a more detailed map.
Strawberries are no longer available for picking this year, but there are many other soft fruits and the farm will let you know which areas have the most ready fruit. The raspberries we went for were grown in covered tunnel areas that the children loved exploring and running up and down in!
You can collect punnets and baskets from the farm shop before you start picking, and return to weigh and pay after. The raspberries that we found were absolutely huge, utterly delicious and eaten very quickly by my little fruit bats – mostly in the car on the way home!
There are toilets available, and the café has a small amount of indoor seating, lots of outdoor seating and a marquee for cover/shade if required. There is a table service and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The children were made to feel very welcome and the food was great!
