Prince George’s favourite safari park, next to the Duchess of Cambridge’s family home has been put up for sale for £1.5m, complete with cafe, play areas and even 44-acres for deer.
A popular tourist attraction, Bucklebury Farm Park, a 72-acre site, is located near the country mansion of Duchess of Cambridge’s parents Carole and Michael Middleton in Berkshire.
The site consists of a number of buildings including a café, indoor play and farm office and even a 44-acre deer safari park.

The farm is one of the Royals’ favourite petting zoos as Prince William and Kate take their children to see the animals.
It also has a range of activities including a Jumping Pillow where children can bounce and play and a pets area where they can offer handfuls of food to guinea pigs and rabbits.
Estate agent Knight Frank said there is the option for further development on the site, adding that there is the potential to expand and enhance the facilities as well as ‘scope for redevelopment of the property for other uses’.

He adds that the five ‘glamping’ tents that have been recently built at the park, under the Featherdown brand, ‘add further diversity to the business’.
The farm started in 1986 as a strawberry ‘pick your own’ enterprise but became a popular tourist attraction over the years.
It has been developed by the current owner, Rupert Hartley-Russell, over the last three decades.

Knight Frank confirmed the site was under offer, but could not share any more information due to a confidentiality clause.
In 2014 it was revealed that the farm had banned the taking of photographs to ensure the privacy of royal visitors.
Staff at the petting zoo were said to have put up signs banning visitors from taking ‘unauthorised photographs of other guests’.
