PLEASE NOTE:

  • We are not open for lunch on Sundays. If you’re looking for a Sunday lunch spot, please call us and we can recommend some local favourites.
  • We are not open for lunch during the Autumn/Winter Season.
  • Spring/Summer tours are weather dependent.  If it’s too wet it won’t be much fun, so we’ll call you in advance to cancel or rearrange.
  • Autumn/Winter tours are not weather dependent as we do not tour the vineyard and orchard (just the indoor production areas), unless it’s a sunny day.
  • Dogs are welcome on a lead around the vineyard, but not inside the shop or the winery. There’s a dog bowl and fresh water outside the shop and somewhere to tie up.

Directions

Do not leave the A30 until you see our signs (your Sat Nav will try to take you elsewhere!) Please stick on the A30 towards Lands End – you will find us on the right, flags waving, with a little, brown grape sign pointing to our gate.
