Found this last year and decided to visit today. What's fine all of those clocks and cider making equipment. Was made very welcome on a very cold February. Well worth a visit.

I'm sorry, but I cannot see how this museum has positive reviews. The equipment is displayed poorly. We went on an overcast day, and it was difficult to see the exhibits. There was no lighting. A lot of exhibits were very similar, and the range...More

Couldn't believe the miserly amount we were offered to taste. A small plastic cup the size of a bottle top for the two of us to share. I'm not joking and it wasn't nice. Cannot recommend a visit, a big disappointment.More

Was nearby so popped by and what a lovely small family run place! Welcoming and interesting. Small, but priced to match this. Good cider and clock collection!
