Yes, you can visit the farm free of charge. If you do not wish to purchase tickets, visitors can access the restaurant, farm shop, visit the farm animals and enjoy a cold pint of cyder in the lower courtyard.
Free entry may be restricted at peak or busy times if we are fully booked with ticket holders and existing members.
If you'd like to enjoy full access to the farm on a self-guided tour, including Production Halls, Kay's Cyderhouse, Healey Car Museum, Cyder Museum, Healeys Distillery & Cellars and of course, Healeys Tasting Room, you can purchase a Access All Areas + Tasting ticket.
Every entry ticket is upgraded to include free entry for 12 months! Pay for a day, visit all year... free of charge!
Yes, you can enjoy a home-cooked meal or cream tea in the Old Bottlery restaurant without buying a “Access All Areas + Tasting” ticket. However, at peak or busy times, you may be refused entry if we are fully booked with ticket holders and existing members.
You do not require a ticket to visit the farm shop.
Rather than have two small retail areas, we have set up a brand-new and improved shop within the visitor centre at the front of the farm!
Just head through the main entrance, and stock up on your favourite cyders, jams, spirits, merchandise, and more!
The shop is fully stocked every morning and due to its popularity, if there is something you can't find, please ask a member of staff for assistance. Last year, we were overwhelmed with incredible demand, so this year... we've made even more!
Guests can visit the restaurant, farm animals and farm shop without purchasing tickets.
For full access to the farm plus 60+ tastings on every visit, our ticketing model is simple, you only pay for a day, but you can visit all year, free of charge!
This means that whilst there is an upfront cost to your first visit, you will benefit from unlimited entry to Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm for 12 months.
Entry tickets will give you full access to the farm on a self-guided tour, including Production Halls, Kay's Cyderhouse, Healey Car Museum, Cyder Museum, Healeys Distillery & Cellars and of course, Healeys Tasting Room where you can taste 60+ products made right here at the farm!
Plus, every entry ticket is upgraded to include free entry for 12 months and we run member-only promotions throughout the year! Pay for a day, visit all year... free of charge!
When you purchase your tickets to visit the farm, we upgrade your purchase to include free return entry for an entire year!
For example, if you visit us for the first time on July 23rd, you'll be given unlimited free entry to the farm until July 22nd of the following year, allowing you to visit us during our famous Christmas Markets and even Easter. The same logic applies if you purchased your admission tickets in December... you'll be able to visit us this summer and you won't pay a penny for entry for the same number of people/tickets.
All you need to do is log in to your account before you select your tickets and the date of your next visit!
Absolutely! If you would like to make your visit extra special, you and your family can add a guided tour to your standard entry and experience an authentic peek behind the scenes of Cornwall's largest independent family cydermakers!

More often than not, this will occur for two reasons;
Currently, we accept cash in the farm shop and restaurant. The Rattler Bar and Pineapple Beach may operate as card only payments once both of these bars are operational.
Yes, we do!
Throughout the year, particularly in the winter months, we will offer discounted ticket prices by as much as 50%. This is due to the fact that some parts of the farm may be closed or be operational for shorter periods of time.
On top of any other discounts, we will also give everyone who pre-books their visit online 20% off! There is no discount code required, the savings will be automatically applied to your entry tickets when you book online.
Yes, we offer a Blue Light & Defence Discount at various times of the year. The discount may not be available all year, as other promotions may take precedence.
Please head to Blue Light & Military Discount page to find out more and how to claim the discount.
Yes, we do!
We offer a discounted ticket prices for senior citizens, aged 65+, reduced family ticket prices and children aged 0-5 go free!
We also offer free day entry to care assistants who are accompanying a visitor to the farm. Please see the question below for more information.
All care assistants who are accompanying a paying visitor or existing member that requires assistance will be given free day entry*.
On the day of the visit, one of the following forms of proof will be required and shown to our welcome team at the desk.
Please note, that the above only applies during visits where the person receiving the care is present and pre-booking is not available for care assistants.. Alternatively, normal admission prices apply.
*If any additional activities are booked such as tractor rides or tours, the care assistant must also purchase a ticket on the day for the additional activity, whilst day entry remains free of charge.
It is always best to bring ID, no one likes to get caught short!
We operate ‘challenge 25’ meaning that if we have any doubts about your age we will ask to see either your passport or driving licence (not a photo - the real thing) before allowing you to consume or purchase alcohol. If acceptable ID cannot be provided, by law we are required to refuse service.
If you have pre-booked adult entry and you're unable to provide ID, we may need to change your ticket to a child ticket, so it is certainly best to play it safe and bring your ID with you!
Please don't panic, traffic in Cornwall can be unpredictable and therefore if you are running 15-30 minutes late for your arrival time, all we ask is that you get to the farm safely. Your entry will still be valid right up until we close for the day.
If you have a guided tour booked (excluding tractor rides), please contact the office on 01872 573 356 as soon as possible to notify us.
If you will only be a few minutes late, we may be able to ask your tour guide to delay the start of your tour to allow you time to arrive and park your vehicle. If you will be longer than 15 minutes late, we may be able to reschedule your tour at the discretion of the Visitor Experience team.
We are serving a variety of cream teas, including traditional, savoury, and gluten-free cream teas, subject to availability.
Whilst it is not illegal for a 16 or 17-year-old to enjoy a cider with their meal when accompanied by an adult, as a licensed venue - we have taken the decision to ensure that only adults aged 18 or above can purchase and/or consume alcohol on the premises.
Absolutely, every single visitor can now wander our production halls at no additional charge, included within the cost of your tickets as part of our access all areas offer!
Of course, you can!
We are still accepting locals cards at the farm, which can be used on all purchases, including in the restaurant, but excluding farm tickets and experiences.
Yes! Friendly dogs on a lead are very welcome at Healeys!
There are two small exclusions, dogs are not permitted in the production halls or in the jam kitchen for hygiene purposes. This means you may need to take turns to have a good wander around these areas, whilst someone stays behind with the puppy.
Other than that, your furry family members can join you everywhere else you go, including on a tractor ride and in the restaurant!
If in doubt, please do call us with any questions you may have.
We’re open seven days a week, except over Christmas Day & Boxing Day. Our hours vary with the seasons, so check ahead of your visit.
Selling food and drink through our restaurants and cafes helps us keep samples and parking on the farm free. For that reason, we ask that you don’t bring or eat any food on the farm that isn’t bought here. We have plenty of choice for all sorts of appetites in our Old Bottlery restaurant and Rattler Bar and cater to all sorts of dietary requirements too, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten- or dairy-free diets.
Unless otherwise specified for particular events, we do not accept table bookings in the restaurant.
We have our own charity – The Healeys Charitable Trust Fund. We get a lot of requests, so to make sure our contribution has the most impact we keep our direct support local to the Perranporth and district area. We can’t reply to everything, but if you think you might fit the bill, drop us a line: [email protected]
Our cyders are cloudy thanks to the unfiltered natural apple pieces that remain in the cyder, and it isn't uncommon for these apple pieces to become more visible after a few days in storage or on its side in the fridge.
Before you open the cyder, try giving the bottle a gentle swirl and if you don't plan on drinking the cyder right away, you can always give the bottle more of a shake. Once you have done this, you should then see the apple sediment dissolve back into suspension.
All that is left to do is to chill and enjoy!
We’re always looking at how we can improve your experience of our farm and our products. If you’re unhappy about any aspect of a product or experience, let our quality team know at [email protected]
