Celebrating Apples at The Apple Festival

The Apple Festival at Killerton National Park

It seems that National Apple Day is “a thing”, and that an Apple Festival is a place to be to celebrate.

The Killerton Apple Festival is on the surface, an almost bizarre event that on the surface seems to be all about apples. Picking Apples, juicing apples, toffee apples, apple juice, cider… you get the picture… But once you start having a nose around you also find… Story telling around a fire… Insect hotel building… Face painting… Making apple people…Live music… Archery… Axe throwing… Chain saw carving… and apple runs.

Basically, if you’re not sure if you want to go. Go. Its a lovely family trip out, with a great laid back feel around the place, and apple juice.

Here’s a sample of what we saw there…

Quick cheeky plug for my instagram stories of the day…

Oh. And the juice you get is amazing…

See the Killerton website for more information about it all.

National Trust is great.

National Trust on your door step is even better.

The problem with having a massive National Trust property on your doorstep (in our case Killerton), is that it gets easy enough to keep going to the same old places.

Here’s a few pictures of what happens when you keep going in a different direction a bit longer then normal.

We keep meaning to check out a “den building” area at the top of the forest at some point, but I think we’ll leave the bike at home that time!

On a different note. This time of year, is a really good time to get the geocache near the motorway bridge!

The other day, we finally decided to take the leap.

With National Trust – Killerton just down the road, we figured it was about time.

We finally signed up to National Trust membership, and explored Killerton on Sunday evening .

I had forgotten how beautiful that area is, and its just down the road.
