This is our local cider farm which produces the most marvellous brew and at £4.60 for 4 litres, is a downright bargain, too!
It's such a fabulous place. We stumbled across it when we first started visiting the West Country a few years back, now we are regular visitors and luckily, it is not too far from our cottage. It is like stepping back in time, everything is very ramshackle but that is all part of its charm.
The farmhouse where the owner lives is rather eclectic, shall we say!
The view to the rear is stunning, across acres of apple orchards complete with horses, and sometimes pigs or lambs. And the air...well it's just marvellous, lung-expanding stuff. We do spend the rest of the week breathing in city smog, after all!
It's also a great place for spotting lovely birds and the Munchkin and I always go over to say hello to the hens.
The real treasure, though, lies inside the cool, dim barn...
Burrow Hill has won many awards for its cider and you may have spotted its distinctive double decker bus from which it peddles cider at events like the Dorset Steam Fair and Glastonbury.
They also supply cider vinegar to Pipers make the best ever salt and vinegar crisps. They just have to be really vinegar-y, I find, and these certainly are.
In the cool depths of the barn the enormous wooden barrels house the dry, medium and sweet cider. Tastings are available too!
Oh yes, it was a good weekend!
