There are pressing matters to attend to at Trelissick over Apple Weekend. In fact, there's so much to squeeze in that an extra day is required. From Friday 5 - Sunday 7 October join us for a celebration of this seasonal harvest.
Over the three days there's something for everyone to get stuck into. Friday is our dedicated specialist day where we will be hosting a number of experts who will impart their knowledge to you. Families will enjoy the activities taking place on Saturday and Sunday. Have a go at pressing apples the old fashioned way or learn how bees make their honey with help from orchards.
Below you'll find the times, days and locations of all the goings on across the property.
