We visited to buy cider. But it was also a visitor gem in it's own right, with a cider making museum, cafe, country fare shop, and excellent helpful staff. Cider could be dispensed in plastic containers (for re-filling) which made the price very reasonable. The...More

Dogs are allowed in the grounds, but not in shop or cafe. However the cafe has plenty of outside seating where you can sit with your dogs and tables are good distance apart so if other dogs are there, no problems !
