The newest addition to Belle Meade Plantation is the Coop ‘N Scoop. An Ice Cream and Fudge Shop in our newly renovated 1862 chicken coop. Along with ice cream and fresh, homemade fudge, old- fashioned candies and sodas are available. You’ll find the Coop ‘N Scoop by the gaming area which includes fun lawn games such as bocce ball, horseshoes, corn hole, and a putting green.
In keeping with our continued efforts to offer our guests the highest quality experiences, our Education Department is overhauling all of our family programming. We cannot wait to share the updated and rebranded Backpack Program soon! In the meantime, please check availability for our Yearling Tour, a tour designed specifically for families.
When traveling to Belle Meade Plantation with teens and college students (16 and older), we would recommend our Segway Tours. A guided hour and half tour of our grounds with a historian is a great way to engage some of the older kids who are a bit more adventurous. We offer Segway Tours 7 days a week, 3-4 times a day, depending on weather. Enjoy this guided tour of our 8 historic out buildings as well as our beautiful grounds, while learning the history of the plantation. We allow up to 10 people per tour, and closed toed shoes are a must. Segway tours are $35 a person, and it would be best to book ahead of time.
