Celebrate Longest Day With Special Walk, Tour & Cider Tasting
Anyone who has visited Little Pomona's Tasting Room knows that we're in a beautiful spot, nestling between hop fields and orchards, amidst rolling hills and wide skies.
Fancy exploring a little further? Then why not join us for Little Pomona's first Cider Solstice Walk on 21 June? Kicking off at the cidery at 5pm and part of the 2022 Herefordshire Walking Festival, Susanna and Laurence will be leading this walk.
We will wend our way north to Bromyard, crisscrossing the gurgling River Frome, detouring for a wee glimpse of Avenbury's haunted church, on our way to the historic market town of Bromyard. We'll stop at the 17th century Tower House, where allegedly Charles 1 stayed, before heading back along the freshly reopened Herefordshire Walking Trail.
Skirting back via the hop fields, there'll be a special stop to enjoy a sneak preview taste of one of Little Pomona's Summer launches - hint, the colour pink and local hops as well as apples might just be involved.
Upon our return to the cidery, our final walking flurry will be not just to Brook House Farm's orchard, but also its fledgling quince orchard. Then it's into the cidery itself for a behind-the-scenes peak at the production side of things and the barrel maturation programme, before finishing with a tasting.
Snacks and cheese platters will also be available for those who are peckish, and you're very welcome to stay and enjoy a glass in the Cider Garden. After all, it is the longest day of the year...
Six km in length, having reccied this last weekend with director of the Walking Festival, Liz, and experienced rambler, Rachel, we can confirm this is a moderately easy walk, with a few regular stiles along the way.
This year we ask that dogs are left minding the home fires, due to livestock in the fields.
Do join us if you can.
