15 fun things to do in March 2018
1/15 Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm
This family-run farm deep in the heart of Cornwall, near Newquay, makes award-winning ciders, wines, spirits and preserves – and a great family day out too! Entry to the farm is free and there’s free parking too. Join a guided tour, which takes you on a journey through the press house, jam factory, museum, distillery, and cellars, before climbing a cider vat and enjoying an aerial view of modern cider production halls.
There are plenty of samples to taste – including ciders, spirits, juices, jams and pickles, The kids will love a tractor ride through beautiful orchards and meeting the friendly farm animals – a Shire horse, pigs, goats and more. There are free-roaming peacocks to take pictures of and you can enjoy a delicious homemade Cornish cream tea in the quaint Tea Rooms, or a full meal in the newly converted restaurant – the ‘Old Bottlery’.
