Perry’s Cider Mill

Today Neil and I took his sister Carole for lunch at Perry’s Cider Mill in Dowlish Wake, close to Ilminster. We drove along¬†pretty and narrow country lanes into the village, past the Dower House and turned into Perry’s Cider Mill, where we had a most convivial meal with good service and excellent food.

DSC01557We wandered around the shop, sampling different ciders and admiring all the delicious looking groceries before making our way to the museum to see how apples were pressed in days gone by.


There was an old plough and many pictures of farm labourers from the past.


An old apple cruncher reminded us of more modern ones we use in our apple pressing.


I loved the old carts


and the old bellows


And then alongside, a piece of modern machinery.  They still do apple pressing and cider making and bottling here.
