Traditional Somerset cider
Mad Apple Cider is made from the finest traditional cider apples in Somerset. Proprietor Ian Cunneen is proud to say "Mad Apple is 100% natural, with nothing added and nothing taken away."
Some apples are collected by hand via shaking trees and knocking 'hard to reach' ones from their resting place with a long stick. Others are harvested with the wonderful Tuthill-Temperley that scoops fallen apples from the ground and deposits them into baskets.
The first orchard Mad Apple Cider acquired for use is at Holford, and belongs to Moorhouse Farm where a superb family run, dog-friendly campsite can be found nestling in the Quantock Hills.
The Dunster Castle Hotel, Dunster. A wonderful establishment, and the food is top quality. The atmosphere's lovely and the staff can't do enough for you.
The Ancient Mariner, Nether Stowey. This pub with B&B, is opposite the Samuel Taylor Coleridge cottage. After a walk on the Quantocks or visit to the Samuel Taylor Coleridge museum, it's time to visit this lovely pub with its friendly staff and good food.
