Venue Information

Broome Farm Cider Barn

Since 1974 this traditional farmhouse orchard has been producing cider and perry. There are now over 70 varieties of cider apples and perry pears growing on the farm enabling the creation of individual blends of award winning cider and perry. The farm cellar is open every day for tastings and sales straight from the barrels, and there is also a selection of bottled stock available, both single varieties and blends. In the large cider barn, set within beautiful apple orchards, events from blues gigs to weddings, and folk bands to full staged operas take place! It was here that Clementine Lovell first performed some opera excerpts to a rural audience, and subsequently founded Pop-up Opera.

Facilities at this venue include:

  • Cider bar
  • Cream teas
  • B&B
  • Toilets
  • Campsite
