Well worth a visit and a fascinating history of the Bulmer's family. The museum is on two levels with a vast cellar underneath. There is a very good shop selling a huge range of specialist ciders and a nice cafe

It was OK, but not worth making a special trip unless you were nearby. Limited free parking on site. The tiny samples at the end, that you had to ask for, just about wetted your tongue. There must be better cider venues nearby.
