Number 3 – Fanny’s Farm Shop, Surrey – Something Different

“Guests can have just the treehouse. They can come here, get married, have some photos, and disappear off to a restaurant to have food if they want. Or if they want they can stay up there with their guests and have the full ploughman’s lunch full of all the local English cheeses and all our salad and cake – the full Fanny’s Farm experience.”
