Blaengawney Farm & Hallets Cider

Blaengawney Farm, home of the cider revival

At the end of a dirt track surrounded by 25 acres of idyllic countryside filled with apple orchards, is a beautifully converted farmhouse with panoramic views of the Valleys below. Just a 25 minute drive from the M4 yet a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of life, this 3 bedroom farmhouse is the perfect hideaway.

With access to the Farm’s charming gardens, seating areas and numerous ponds, owners Annie and Andy Hallett welcome visitors to explore the famous apple orchards where apple trees grow at a thousand feet. Extracting pure apple juice is the secret to making the delicious Hallett’s Cider. The orchard has grown from 7 acres to 25 acres in 6 years and now supplies businesses all over the world. Try some refreshing cider at the local pub or buy some from the farm itself.

Don’t just take our word for it, Hallett’s Cider was awarded ‘Best Drink Producer in the UK’ by Radio 4 in their ‘Food and Drink Awards 2016’. Judges described Hallett’s Cider as ‘the most beautiful cider ever tasted’
