Join in the pear harvest at Dyrham Park

9th October 2014

Categories: News

Dyrham Park will be hosting a harvest celebration on 18-19 October. Over the last few weeks the estate has been joined by its visitors in collecting pears from its orchard, so that the fruit can be turned into ‘Dyrham Park Perry’. The celebratory weekend will be the first opportunity to try this year’s batch along with mulled and hot pear juice varieties.

There will also be an old fashioned juicer where you can bring your pears to turn into juice, an orchard trail for children, as well as a pear-inspired menu in the tea-room. Visitors will be able to discover the history and West Country folklore of the fruit and enjoy a vintage marquee, courtesy of Vintage Marquees in Biddestone, Wiltshire.

Beth Taylor, Outdoors Officer at Dyrham Park, said: “Visitors have been helping us to harvest the pears for weeks now and the ‘Perry Pear Weekend’ is great chance for families to come and celebrate the harvest with us.”
Dyrham Park situated just off the M4  junction 18, is open daily from 10am-5pm (or dusk when earlier). Please note, the house is currently closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Further information – including admission prices and details of other events - available at:
