At Q Gardens near Abingdon you can check into the Pick Your Own hut (on the opposite side of the main road from the shop) from 10am.  It’s cash only in the PYO hut.

The tea room at Q Gardens serves the best of local produce – tasty cakes and cream teas, their own homemade quiche, sandwiches and filled baguettes made from thick crusty bread all at very reasonable prices.

They will soon be re-building their play equipment to make it a much more appealing for younger visitors.  The new play area will be completed in mid-June, in plenty of time for the summer holidays.
