The autumn season has officially started to settle in, which means it’s the perfect time to explore orchards. Here are some of the best places to celebrate autumn with apple and cider weekends near you.
This year, Cotehele's annual apple weekend on 22-23 September is also a celebration of the Mother Orchard's 10th birthday. Come along to sample local apple varieties, see the Victorian cider press in action and lots more.
Celebrate the change of seasons and the orchards looked after by the team at Saltram, by helping us to harvest the apples at the annual apple day event.
A weekend of family activities including a specialist day on Friday for those wanting to delve into the world of cultivating, growing and the uses of apples.
Lots of family fun and a chance to join in with the harvest ...
