A relaxing weekend is just what’s needed after a demanding Monday to Friday – and taking a moment to enjoy a fine cup of coffee somewhere pleasant is a great way to unwind.
Luckily there are many popular farm shops serving coffee dotted around Berkshire.
In fact, some are home to highly-recommended cafés that serve afternoon teas and other classics for hungry visitors.
To help you choose where to head next, here’s a handy guide.
Saddleback Farm Shop
More than just a farm shop, there’s also a butchery and onsite bakery to explore while at Saddleback in Newbury.

Cobbs Farm Shop and Kitchen
Made up of a series of cow sheds, this interesting location in Hungerford is sure to leave an impression from the first visit.
Alongside other attractions, there’s a delicatessen, butchery, florist and of course a café which boasts “local, seasonal and British products”.
Serving breakfast, lunch and afternoon teas and its own Cobbs farm espresso coffee, it’s best to pop in early to ensure you don’t miss out.
Windsor Farm Shop
The wide range of foods on offer is one of the things that makes this Windsor destination stand out.
From the diverse selection of cakes, to meats from the Royal estate, you’ll be spoiled for choice when you make your visit.
They do advise that large groups should book ahead, so be sure to take note of this if you’re going with a bigger party.
