The apple harvest is being celebrated at the Great British Country fair at Cotehele, neat Saltash on Saturday September 23 and Sunday September 24.

The National Trust estate is teaming up with Miss Ivy Events for a lively weekend fair in the orchards.

Dave Bouch, Cotehele’s head gardener said: "Apples are always a sign that summer is over and we have an autumn harvest to look forward to. Many traditional orchards have been lost in the last century, so we always look forward to this time of year when we can celebrate apples and remember their importance to our history, culture and landscape."

There will be 40 food, gift and artisan stalls together with live music with Macquarrie & Tom, falconry displays, workshops with Orchard Studios, welly wanging, archery, other outdoor activities and refreshments.

Cotehele gardeners will run talks and demonstrations, culminating with 'The Big Squeeze' each day when they press the apples in the Victorian cider press. There will be a children’s fruit juice lab, pruning and apple training displays, information about Tamar Valley apple varieties and orchard tours.

The event will run each day from 10.30am-16.30pm and entry is £4, National Trust members £3 and under 17s free.
