Join us for apple related fun for the whole family including apple pressing and juicing, games, and activities. Bring some empty bottles and let us turn your apples into scrumptious juice to take home from 11.30 - 2.30pm each day.
Come along to help us press the apples from Lydford Gorge's orchard. Your efforts will be rewarded with a taste of the juice. Have a go on the apple shy, create a creature from apples and cook up some tasty apple-inspired treats on the camp fire.
Welcome in the new year and celebrate the newly completed orchard with Tyntesfield's first Wassail. Join us from 11am to 1pm for crafts in the Sawmill to make your own shaker to rattle during a parade through the estate at 1:30pm. The final Wassail and blessing of the orchard will take place at 3pm.

As well as providing abundant harvests every year, orchards are an important habitat for nature and wildlife. Unfortunately many orchards have been lost over the years, but we are helping maintain and reinstate these forgotten priority habitats at many National Trust places.
