As harvest time arrives, here are the top destinations for apple harvests, tastings and other core activities

If there is a cider capital of the UK it’s arguably Herefordshire, where the rolling hills are covered with orchards. The Big Apple is an association of orchards in the region and their harvest festival takes place at nine locations around the town (9-10 October). A free tractor and trailer service, provided by Weston’s Cider, takes visitors between six of the sites, including organic orchards, small-scale cider producers and Hellens Manor – a country estate and gardens offering hands-on pressing activities and morris dancing. Pop into the Much Marcle Memorial Hall for a cup of apple tea, and stay at the Seven Stars in nearby Ledbury, a cosy pub with comfortable rooms.
