8 of the Best Cider Farm Tours


There are tons of cider farms all over the UK. If you love cider, chances are that you have already visited a cider farm. But if you haven’t already, we strongly recommend that you do! They offer magnificent views, a lovely atmosphere, and - bonus - cider!

Here are eight of the best cider farm tours that we recommend you go on in the UK. 

  1. Burrow Hill Cider Farm

    Located in Martock, Somerset, this is one of the most beautiful cider farms you could visit. It’s got lush green hills, fantastic orchards, and a view that looks like it’s straight out of a painting. But don’t take our word for it - check out a few photographs of the place and you’ll be convinced. Honestly, this cider farm is so beautiful that we recommend visiting even if you aren’t into ciders! But don’t worry, there’s a lot more to do for all you cider aficionados. For just £5 you can opt for a proper one-and-a-half-hour tour which walks you through the entire process of cider making, right from picking the apples to maturing. Talk about a bargain! P.S. they aren’t available on Sundays, and unless you’d like a guided tour prior booking isn’t required.


  1. Ross Cider

    Another great option if you’re looking at a proper guided cider farm tour. The experts over at Ross Cider explain you the entire process of how they make their award-winning ciders and perry. The £15 fee also includes a tutored tasting (which can last for over an hour!) and a free bottle to take home. They are more than happy to answer any questions you may have about their ciders, farms, or anything else that they do! And there’s more - if you’re looking at complete day outing then they even offer a Ploughman’s Buffet (they’re quite flexible on timings and the menu so no need to worry). Overall, they do a great job of making you feel welcome at their beautiful cider farm. We definitely recommend!


  1. Torre Cider

    Spread over eight acres of land and boasting of over 1,200 apple trees (with sixteen varieties of apple), this cider farm is a must-visit. Not only do they have a proper cider production facility and an in-house orchard, but they also have animals on their farm! If you fancy some shopping, they also have a farm shop & tearoom on their property. Compared to some of the other cider farms, this one feels more “one with nature” thanks to the farm animals. If you’re worried about bringing kids along, don’t. They have a ton of play equipment and your kids will be happy to play at the cider farm for hours while you unwind and relax in the tranquil surroundings. Another great part about Torre Cider Farm is that it is free entry and they offer free tastings, too!


  1. Pure North Cider Farm

    While they are newer to the cider-making game, Pure North has been producing some wonderful cider from traditional apples. In fact, they expanded their lineup in 2012. If you’re interested in learning more about their amazing journey and their beautiful cider farm, you should head over to their farm in West Yorkshire. Rob North produces some of the finest natural cider and talks you through the entire process of cider making. The cider farm tour also includes a walk through their orchard, sampling of ciders, and lunch. 


  1. Butford Organics Cider Farm

    Butford Organics has built a great reputation over the years for making incredible cider. In fact, they also offer courses (which sell out quite quickly) which teach you exactly how they make their ciders. They also offer guided tours and tastings of their cider farm. Since there’s a lot happening at the farm, the tour has a different itinerary depending on what time of the year you visit. We recommend reaching out to them and asking them beforehand about the tour. They have decades of experience and will guide you very well in picking the perfect time to visit their beautiful cider farm depending on what your preferences are. 


  1. Dorset Nectar

    Located in Waytown, Dorset, this is a great cider farm tour if you also want to learn the entire process of how Dorset Nectar makes their crisp, award-winning artisan ciders. They run their cider farm tours on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 11am. For £8.00 you get quite a lot. Not only do you get a cider farm tour, but also a tasting and a stroll through their beautiful orchards and organic farm. You will learn more about how they make their delicious craft ciders right from their cider masters who are happy to answer your questions.


  1. Kentish Pip

    Kentish Pip host lots of events and tours throughout the year. In the summer they host a Summer BBQ event, which has everything you’d want - delicious cider, great food, and more cider! For £10.00 you can book their cider farm tour which includes a tour of their orchard as well as a tutored tasting. If you’re a group of more than ten, you can even opt for a private tour if you book in advance.


  1. Perry’s Cider

    They’re one of the oldest producers in the UK and love to host visitors on their beautiful cider farm. In fact, they’ve actually won awards for their cidery! They are open on all days except Christmas and encourage guests to feel the beautiful surroundings, grab a quite bite, and explore real working cider mills. But wait, there’s more! Perry’s Cider farm also has a museum on their property which has the original thatched cider barn where the company was founded way back in the 16th century!


So if you are looking for a fun day out we recommend visiting a cider farm. You will get to learn so much more about how your favourite beverage is made AND get to be one with nature. Yoga retreats are overrated, book a cider farm tour! It’s more enjoyable and peaceful ;)
