Don’t miss the petting zoo if you're with kids, and try a Cornish clotted cream tea at the on-site restaurant with a courtyard.

Went here after it was recommended. Opted to take the full tour and it was brilliant. Went on a tractor ride and it explains about the orchards, then we went on a guided tour through the museum and th... read more »
Great food, a little pricey but very nice, sample the cyder, it's difficult to choose which one to buy as they are all nice, see the animals on the farm too, it's not all day, but good for a few hours... read more »
Never heard of Rattler cider so while in Cornwall decided to go to where it was brewed. Great day and interesting. We went on the £15 tour and learnt about everything to do with Healey's. Tasted loads... read more »
We did enjoy our visit at first, the tour around the factory was interesting, and the cider sampling was very enjoyable - the girl serving was very friendly and explained the different ciders well. The trip turned somewhat sour when we visited the animals; two peacocks for sale in a tiny cage; a huge horse in a small pen with barely any room to move around or to get away from visitors to the farm if he wanted to, and a goat all alone in a fenced off piece of grass, tied by a rope to a peg in the middle of the ground. He only had a few feet around him to walk, and the rope was getting tangled around his legs. My partner and I commented that with a better fence he wouldn't have needed the rope around his neck. He stood on the rope at one point and nearly throttled himself. Another visitor to the farm also looked upset by this, and I overheard him make the same comment about the fence. It was rather upsetting to see the animals looking so downhearted! The floor was also very uneven, and two separate elderly ladies had fallen over and hurt their faces. There were signs indicating that the floor was uneven, however some repairs could have fixed this issue.
Ok for a visit but has now been spoilt by commercialism, vastly over priced and nearly all products can be found far cheaper in local supermarkets. What was once a nice quaint cyder farm has now become all about extracting the maximum money from the tourist.

Went on the full guided tour and it was fantastic. The tour guide (Matt G) was outstanding and full of answers to every question asked. It was an experience that I would gladly repeat again and again. Of course the tasting aspect was amazing too - the elderflower pressé is definitely one to try along with the scotch whisky cyder.
Wonderful tour of the cider factory and a chance to taste their range of ciders and wines. They suggest allowing a couple of hours but we were there most of the day. Excellent trip and even the kids enjoyed the trip and their own juice tasting.
Lovely place to visit, even my toddler enjoyed it. Lovely staff and amazing scones
