Situated on a large farm in the Monnow valley, Ty Gwyn has been growing cider apples on terraced orchards for around 40 years, where they've also been growing apples for Bulmers and blackcurrants for Ribena. In fact, it was a glut of apples that Bulmers didn't need, that eventually forced them to experiment with their own craft cider and they've not looked back since!

The farm drive affords stunning views of the Monnow Valley, and the team working at the cider farm are always happy to spend time talking cider and explaining the process to visitors, seven days a week and 12 months a year. There's no charge for a brief tour around the cidery and orchards, and all ages are welcome to come and explore.
