Taste of Summer
Our chef’s love working with the most scrumptious and freshest local produce, and you’ll have the opportunity to see for yourself where we source much of our food and drink!

Amongst the masses of super suppliers, Sandford Cider will be showcasing their selection of crisp, fruity and refreshing Devon ciders… Aaaaah!

Sandford Orchards are multi-award winning craft cider producers, and being nestled between coast and moor in sleepy Mid- Devon has provided the ultimate cider making landscape. Every drop of cider is naturally cold-fermented from the whole of juice of Devon cider apples grown within 30 miles of our press.

If you can contain yourself, the Sandford Devon Red is available on tap in The Swan Inn, our onsite country inn.

Did you know it’s an offence not to sample a cider whilst you’re in the Westcountry? Okay, so you may prefer to quench your thirst with an aromatic ale or flavoursome beer instead, we’ve got you covered! Otter Brewery has been producing world famous Bitter, Beers and Ales for almost 30 years and you can sample their array of refreshing beverages at the Festival and in The Swan Inn!
