Coronavirus: Important notice about our Myrtle Farm tours
Whilst we love showing members of the public around our farm, our tours have been suspended at the current time. If you’ve got a tour booked for the coming weeks, you will have received an email from us to explain about refunds.
We’re receiving many enquiries about when our tours will be starting again, and when visitors can redeem their vouchers.
All the vouchers have an issue date on them, and those we’ve sent out to replace cancelled bookings over the last few months all have a two year window, to enable plenty of opportunities to rearrange your visit. Likewise all vouchers issued prior to March now have a two year window as well.
We don’t yet know when we will be able to re-start public tours of Myrtle Farm, so our bookings and voucher purchase system will remain closed for the foreseeable future. This is so we can give priority to those of you who already have vouchers.
Want to know more about how we craft our cider here at Myrtle Farm?
Book onto one of our guided tours, where you’ll learn about how we craft our ciders here on Myrtle Farm. You’ll also get the chance to try a few ciders too!
You’ll see how times have changed over the 100 years of cider making and we’re sure you’ll hear a story or two about the Thatcher Family!
You might also want to extend your stay and book a meal at The Railway Inn.
We look forward to welcoming you to Myrtle Farm, the home of Thatchers Cider.
Please note before you book:
The tour around the mill is around 1 and ½ hours long and there are no seating areas during that time. Also, the tour includes steps and slopes that may not be suitable for people with mobility issues.
We cannot guarantee that all aspects of the cider making process will be working on any given day, because of maintenance and site developments.
These take place every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 11am, meeting at The Railway Inn. The tour will take you to the orchards (weather permitting) and the mill, where you will be shown the whole process of our 100-year cider making skills. At the end of the tour you will then get the chance to sample some of our Somerset ciders.
If you’re enquiring on behalf of a commercial organisation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with full details of your tour request, so we can best accommodate your needs.
Terms and conditions of our tours
There are some terms and conditions we ask you to read carefully before booking, and arriving for a tour. Failure to do so might result in you not being able to join the tour and we’d hate you to be disappointed. Myrtle Farm is a working mill, so it is especially important to ensure you are wearing appropriate footwear or clothing.
Tours will consist of indoor and (weather permitting) outdoor areas.
Please wear suitable outerwear and footwear. We reserve the right to refuse participation on the tour if we consider inappropriate clothing is worn. This includes open shoes/flip flops/sandals.
Non slip soled shoes are advised.
Some of the buildings in our mill have narrow corridors and uneven floors. Therefore we regret they are unsuitable for wheelchairs, mobility scooters, or similar mobility aids.
We are a working mill and therefore some restrictions may be in force and for that reason all aspects of the tour cannot be guaranteed.
Minimum age for tour participants is 15. Only participants aged 18 years or over may taste our ciders.
If you are, or look under 21 please bring ID.
Our tours are conducted in the English language only.
We are afraid no dogs or any other pets are allowed on the tour.
No photography is allowed on the tour.
Tours are weather dependant.
Booking in advance is required.
You may be required to sign acknowledging these and other terms of participation.
