Bere Ferrers Apple Fest – get there by train

This article is more than 7 months old.

Hop on the scenic Tamar Valley Line to Bere Ferrers this weekend for the return of their annual Apple Festival on Saturday 7th October!

What’s on

This long-time feature in the Tamar Valley calendar is a fan favourite! It’s free to attend and will be held at Bere Ferrers Church Hall, just a 10-minute walk from the station, from 13 00 – 17 00.

The event will feature an apple pie competition, morris dancers, a mega raffle and more! You can even bring your own apples along for crushing and juicing – or buy some apple juice from a local seller.

More to see and do

Bere Ferrers is a beautiful riverside village so a visit to the Apple Fest can be combined with a walk (get directions for a three-mile circular walk) and lunch in the local pub, The Olde Plough (booking recommended), for a great day out in the countryside.
