Apple days and harvest festivals

People sorting apples

Celebrate autumn in the orchards we look after. Taste different varieties of apples, have a go at pressing some yourself, enjoy local cider and try apple bobbing. Kids can have a go at No.9 of our 50 things to do before you’re 11¾ activities ‘eat an apple straight from a tree’. Afterwards why not try cooking up your own sweet treats using our recipes?

Seasonal menus 

Apples, pumpkins, pears and many more fruit and vegetables reach their prime in the autumn. We take pride in offering seasonal recipes on the menus at our cafes and restaurants with produce grown from our own kitchen gardens. Visit one of our gardens and sample the menu as the season changes.
