Details

The Gower Cider Festival offers visitors a wide selection of locally produced, award winning cheese, cider and perry from Wales; there will also be stalls.

Visitors will be able to sample and enjoy some of the best cider Wales has to offer. There will also be a great variety of ciders such as our very own Gower produced cider called the Mill House cider along with many more. There will also be advice on how to make apple juice or cider and there will be a traditional 1890s travelling cider press on site with apple press demonstrations taking place.

There will also be a Gower roast and BBQ along with the Mill Tearooms serving a wide range of welsh classics; and not forgetting the popular Welsh Cream Tea, which will be served all day.
