This is a must if you are in the area, I am not a lover of commercial enterprise tours so this was a real gem, just wholly enthusiastic people telling you about there lives really, you can sense they are just living their family business. It is a fascinating tour in a wonderful quaint original farm that is just as it has been for many many years. Not attempt has been made to tart it up for the visitors so you really see it as it is. Don't change a thing folks you will spoil a national treasure.
Tradition and progress simultaneously. Wonderful apple juices, ciders, cider brandies, produce and eau de vies made from local orchard apples, pears and cherries. Julian "The Don of Cider in the UK" has created something very special (and has had to fight hard to achieve all that he has). Matilda, his daughter, and a talented photographer, now runs the business. Diana his wife is as acclaimed artist; Alice, one of his other daughters, is an internationally celebrated fashion designer and Mary, his third daughter, makes wonderful skin care products using local ingredients - some of their wares can be bought in the shop. This place is not glamorous or pretentious but their drinks are superb and they have values by which they live and work. Worth a special trip and they even do tours with tastings ( best to book)
We couldnt recommend this more. A wonderful journey around (what I regard as) a national treasure. An informal and fascinating insight into the mind of the owner, Julian. Full of facts, opinions, heritage and history, with a healthy dose of humour (oh, and all varieties of Somerset Cider Brandy). I am slightly bias as this is almost exclusively my drink of choice but don't be fooled, i don't write reviews willy nilly. Thank you to all for the tour. All the best
So glad we got there just in time to join the tour. Fascinating! Got a new favourite drink now.
Stumbled across this place by accident. What a find. Really friendly and the ice cider is amazing. I’ll be back.
