Apple Day

On arrival at Clovelly you will see apple pressing by Gatcombe valley Juices outside the Visitor Centre, so please do bring a bag of apples, watch them being pressed and taste the fresh juice or if you wish, you can bring more for pasteurisation and bottling for which there will be a charge (£1.90 per 75 cl bottle).

On entry to Clovelly (free for children under 7 years old), you will find the Apple crafts and activities in the Visitor Centre from 12:00-17:00. The round shape of the apple with the great reds and greens makes the apple a perfect base for creating art. So enjoy some Apple Art with The Plough and either carve, sculpt, decorate or do all of them with your apple.

There will also be live music, apple bobbing, apple stamping and making corn dollies.

Isabella Necessity on her Story Bicycle will also be visiting Clovelly to tell stories of her orchard escapades and share snippets of apple folklore.

Isabella is a bicycling botanist who loves to share stories from her incredible journeys around the world with the people she meets along the way. Isabella has flown with the blue butterflies of Brazil in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest, outwitted trolls in the fjords of Norway, learnt Kung-Fu on the Mountain of Kunyu and rested in a robin's nest on Dartmoor. With delightful storytelling, gorgeous illustrations, unexpected wonders and a handsome Story Bicycle called Dilys, Isabella will whisk you away to another world.

There will be a small farmers market, including a pick of pumpkins, vegetables, herbs, meat, and cider amongst other stalls. Merry Harriers Garden Centre will also have some of their interesting products on display. The WI will be hosting our second Apple Pie/Crumble competition as well as selling homemade cakes.

At 13:00pm families can take part in a fun Harvest Hunt with the Clovelly tour guide, Jana Edwards, who will take you down and around the craft yard and Mount Pleasant, telling spooky stories and looking for clues to win a harvest treat, finishing back at the visitor centre. Please book your place on arrival as spaces are limited.

Apple pressing: 11:00-13:00, Apple day activities: 12:00 - 16:00; Harvest Hunt 13:00-14:30.
