Cider tends to be a seasonal experience for most of the UK’s smaller producers, but that doesn’t mean visits need to be confined to the autumn. Set in the charmed location between the Malvern Hills, Much Marcle Ridge and the Brecon Beacons, Weston’s offers a family friendly opportunity to find out about both traditional and modern ways of making cider.

Westons produces 36m litres a year, all fermented in oak vats, albeit huge ones – Squeak (all vats have names) holds 42,000 gallons for example.

Friendly guides show both old and new ways of milling and pressing the apples before taking you into the impressive fermentation barn. Tours finish with a tasting back in the Visitor's Centre. The tea room has a fascinating bottle collection, while the Scrumpy House bistro serves locally-sourced dishes and there's a picnic area for those who'd like to bring their own vittels. Kids are well looked after, with a play area, shire horse dray rides and a traditional breeds farm in the summer.
