Starting at 12 noon or 5 pm.
This is the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion with a small group of friends or family.
Ideal as a surprise for a cider fan, this occasion offers you a dedicated guide for your whole visit, which will include walking visits to our orchards, our press house, a vat house and museum with DVD of our cider-making year. The culmination of your visit will be a fully guided tasting of a selection of our award winning ciders inside an oak vat. You will take home your ½ pint cider tasting glass as a gift to remember your visit.
At the end of your tour your guide will escort you to the Apple Bay Bar, where you may like to enjoy a pre-dinner drink before your guide leaves you to enjoy a two course meal made with the best West Country ingredients.
Things you need to know:
Tour – Darker evenings mean that the orchards will not be included as part of tours which take place after 30th September.
Bad Weather - As your visit can include a walk to the orchards, you need to consider how intrepid and well equipped you and your guests are. If you are ready for all weathers (including footwear), our guide will be delighted to take you on the whole tour, but, if not, he or she will plan the tour to suit your needs on the day.
What Your Meal Includes – Your two courses must be selected in advance from the set tour menu which will be provided to you. Your meal does not include drinks.
Where to Meet – Our Guides are all the enthusiastic type and your guide will be almost as excited as you are about your visit. Your guide will meet you in the shop at the tour meeting point.
Booking – V.I.P. tours must be booked at least 7 days in advance.
Shop – Our shop closes at 5.30 pm, so evening tour visitors may wish to visit the shop before their tour starts.
