Here are a few photos from our visit to Trelissick Apple weekend (02nd October). You can keep up with what’s on at Trelissick here.
It was a glorious day; summer’s last hurrah with autumn in the air. We got there early and were glad we did as the car parks soon got busy. We followed the apple trail and found out about different varieties and the countries they come from. In the orchard there was lots of apple related fun as you can see in the photos. The large cider press was in action and both the children took a turn at pressing and tasting apple juice. We spent half a day just doing the apple-related fun. It’s all free after you’ve paid entry to the gardens (free for NT members). There is also the house and gardens to explore as well as the beach and other walks around the estate: North woodland walk; South woodland walk including the King Harry Ferry and the walk to Roundwood Quay.
