    Fantastic, scrumptious, welcoming
    We visited during the pandemic and had a fantastic afternoon. Great tasting cider was available on tap and the host made us feel super welcome. We walked the orchard and ended up indulging in a cheesy dream to finish. The apple juice is amazing.

    Amazing place, amazing host… brilliant afternoon
    what can I say about the Haywood Cider farm tour… it was absolutely brilliant. Tom was an amazing host. We sampled various ciders from start, during and end of tour. I can highly recommend this to everyone, even if cider isn’t your thing… coming from a lager/beer drinker. Tom is very funny, knowledgeable and just a great guy. If your near St Mabyn can’t recommend this place as a stop off on your trip. Thanks Tom for a great afternoon, great ciders and a great cheeseboard.

    Cider As It Should Be
    We were lucky enough to be staying at the excellent B&B next door to the farm (Treglown House) so it was rude not to visit during our holiday, as it was literally just going through a fence to get here. We had another piece of luck during our stay, as we arrived as they were doing the last Live Music Sunday of the year. What a great atmosphere! The band were outstanding and played for hours. The bar in the barn looked lovely (think TV's 'The Repair Shop' but with alcohol). Staff were really welcoming too. This is traditional, real cider and not the awful mass produced stuff being knocked out these days (especially the disgusting trashing of the historic Inch's brand). Every one of the ciders we tried were delicious. I don't think you can go wrong. The Apple Juice for the children was also really good. The shop is very well stocked with a lot of souvenirs to take home. Even if we weren't staying next door I would absolutely come here.

We had a really enjoyable afternoon being shown around by the owner, Tom. He clearly has a passion for making cider and is very well informed having learnt how to make Cider from scratch. The tour was all the better for being very informal and Tom’s stories and style endeared us all.
Make sure you have a designated driver as the cider is very nice to sample!
Shame that the tour only runs on Thursdays but they need time to run a small business as well.

What a gem! Hidden away in a beautiful and quiet corner of Cornwall. This place is well worth the effort of finding. A warm welcome and a wonderful product, you could not wish for more. Would love to return and book in on the orchard tour.

Lovely people , great Cider!. Saw signs and adverts for the farm on last years holiday. Returned nearby for a holiday this year. Had to call in . I wasn’t disappointed. The family who run the farm are lovely. The Cider is delicious.

After thinking the sat nav had gone loopy we arrived at Haywood farm.
The gentleman in the shop was extremely welcoming and offered the different cider for us to taste. Hubby got a 10litre bag and a flagon. Quite happy when he found out we could order online as well.

We stumbled across this little gem completely by accident, intrigued by the mysterious promise of cider we followed the signs through to St Mabyn and were very glad we did!

The cider can be mixed to taste directly from the barrels (we favoured a 20/80 sweet/dry blend!) or if you're looking for something with a longer shelf life there are also pre-bottled pasteurised options available.

The farm shop is open between 9.30-19.00 from Mon-Sat and 10.00-18.00 on Sundays, it's great as a quick stop off but we also found out the farm runs tours and 'cider social' events throughout the summer so these are worth looking out for if you know you will be in the area!

We had a lovely afternoon with Tom learning how cider is made and having a cheeky sample of the products. Tim and his staff are friendly and knowledgable about the cider making process. We had a walk around his orchards and finished off with a Cornish cheeseboard and some bottled ciders, elderflower and apple was my particular favourite. We had a really mixed age group but everyone had fun.

We had bought some of this cider at a local farm shop and thought that, while we were holidaying in the area, it would be nice to see where it was produced. The farm itself is in a lovely location and when we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly dog. We went into the shop, where the lady serving was very pleasant and helpful. She let us sample several ciders and also the fresh apple juice. These were so, so good! After making our purchases, she said that we were welcome to have a look round the orchard. So we walked down to the orchard, accompanied by the very friendly dog, and it was amazing to see all these apple trees. There was a man collecting the apples and he was happy to answer all our questions. The cider is very nice to drink but it has been an added bonus to see the actual place where it's produced
