Cider Tours at Sheppy's House of Cider

Your tour will finish off with a fully tutored tasting of a selection of Sheppy's award winning Somerset ciders. On your visit you will be offered 10% off all Sheppy's Cider and merchandise from the House of Cider Farmshop.

By visiting us in Spring, the orchards are beginning to bud and bloom. This can be a beautiful time to catch the orchards with freshness in the air. Although we cannot promise the weather conditions during your visit - our tour guides will do their best to cater the tour to the overall preference of the group. For example, if the weather is not as bright as we had hoped we may lead you to a different point in our orchards. 
 

Things you need to know:

Clothing recommendations - As your visit includes a short trip to the orchards, you need to consider how well equipped you and your guests are. We always recommend coming prepared, please ensure you are dressed (including your footwear) for all weathers.

Duration of the tour - On average our tours last for 1.5 hours, this includes a full 30-minute tasting. The length of the tour may vary depending on how interested your group is in different elements of the tour. Your guide will be more than happy to answer as many questions as they can - if there is anything they are not sure about they will do their best to find out for you before your visit is over! Our tours can be adapted for special circumstances, if you have any problems with accessibility please do let us know at the time of booking, this way we can ensure we include as much as possible for everyone.
