Overview
More
Mr. & Mrs. Puddicombe along with their four children and staff mission is to provide families with the opportunity to visit the countryside and embrace what Mother Nature provides us among family and friends. It's the simple things in life that make all the difference and create the best ever-lasting memories. For more than 210 years Puddicombe Estate Farms & Winery has harvested its own fruits to provide fresh produce and a wide variety of value added products such as hand-baked pies, jams, jellies, cookies, tarts, strudels, cider, fudge and wines. In the last few years Puddicombe Estate has adopted a field to table approach with all of its catered events serving items grown and picked for the occasion right from the farm or brought in from other local growers within a 100 mile radius of Puddicombe Estate. Puddicombe Estate believes that a farm fresh meal is a very basic yet integral part of maintaining a strong bond with families and friends. We believe this philosophy strengthens our communities and enriches our lives.

This place is a little weird but if you overlook the staff and outdated 'facilities' you have the opportunity to view breathtakingly beautiful farmland. Upon arrival we were not sure how to purchase train tickets or where anything was. We entered the 'restaurant'... I use...More

People expect snobbery when they visit vineyards. Disappoint them and they will be happy. The staff at the Winery Bakery and tasting bar were not welcoming when you entered. For the uninitiated ... you would leave quickly thinking I do not belong here... Once you...More

Very surprised by how poorly kept this place was. Needs a major clean up of the grounds from the parking to the store area, junk everywhere you look (junk, not 'trash'), needs a paint job everywhere. Bathroom was gross although a young employee had just...More

This is not a winery, it is a farm. Despite the fact it is called Puddicome farms, to advertise a wine tour on the grounds is misleading. Piles of garbabe littered the grounds, food "paired" with the tiny amounts of wine given was not a...More

Sorry you were disappointed! Other customers have loved this wine tasting tour on our little train!! Just to let everyone know by law we are only allowed large tastings for wine tastings! Our train trip started with a healthy plate of appetizers and wine tasting!...More

I went with my family to Puddicombe for some fresh fruit and wine tasting. We walked into the wine tasting area and the sommelier looked over at us but stayed behind the counter where she was sitting. We stood at the bar on the other...More

I visited the winery in July 2017. Lunch was supposed to be provided. The food was nothing special. The chicken was dry and tasteless. The train was running a bit rough and there was lots of garbage piles around the farm. First and last time...More

I went there for Lunch which they no longer serve. Noted that it could be a good family trip with activities for children and family.
