11am – 3pm. Come and look round our small orchard and admire our beautiful apple blossom. Feel free to bring your pencils, water colours or camera and spend some time contemplating the flowers at close quarters. You might also be fascinated by the beautiful lichen that grows on the trees or the bees that we hope will be pollinating the flowers. NB: Despite our best efforts the quality of the blossom is weather and season dependent! Included with admission ticket.
