Apple Festival @@@@ Erddig

Croeso i Erddig - Welcome to Erddig.
Erddig is widely acclaimed to be one of Britain`s finest historic houses reflecting the upstairs downstairs life of a family over 250 years. In October every year the estate houses the popular Apple Festival.
This year was no exception. It was quite a spectacular event Here you can savour the autumnal colour and sweet taste of the apple harvest. There is a display of apples which are grown on the estate many hundreds of different makes some dating back hundreds of years. Seeing is believing.
Around the estate different activities, displays and demonstration were underway. Morris dancers to the North Wales Owl Rescue Centre. Pottery plants books crafts of all types basically something for everyone to enjoy.
In the gardens there were Punch and Judy shows and old fashioned attractions.
Sampling the cider was a popular tent ! We watched a cider making demonstration. Looking around the stalls we bought ourselves some special treats.
This was a lovely afternoon out we finished our day by wandering around the big old historic house. The afternoon tea. Truly wonderful ! The photo`s are lovely and show the spectacular colours of the autumn fall.
