There are a number of pubs within walking distance where you can enjoy a drink or a meal. During the winter months we recommend our guests borrow the torches provided at the cottage if they are planning to walk to the pub.

Sheppy's House of Cider
There is plenty to see and do at Sheppy's House of Cider. You can go on a tour of the facilities or have a tasting session, or simply enjoy a walk in the orchards followed by a lovely meal in the café restaurant. You might even take something back to Sunrise Cottage with you to cook!
The alpaca experience at Stoke Wood Alpacas lasts around two hours and includes a talk about alpacas, their history, etc, a visit to see and feed the alpacas, helping to catch alpacas for haltering, and fun walk around the farm land with up to eight alpacas at a time. Hot and cold drinks and cakes are provided to finish. A lovely way to spend a couple of hours.
