Blaengawney Farm is the home of the only cider orchards in Caerphilly. With seven acres of new orchards set in a picturesque valley, visitors are free to roam around if they contact owners Andy and Annie Hallett in advance.

With its surrounding wildlife areas, formal gardens, ponds and vegetable patch, the farm building can be traced back as far as the early 18th century.

Don't miss

Hallets Real Cider – this award-winning medium dry cider is the farm's main product and has built up a firm following. Sample it at their cider shed or in one of a number of local inns and restaurants. See here for outlets.
