Dorset Nectar is an award-winning artisan cider maker in the beautiful Dorset countryside between Bridport and Netherbury. The cider is fermented from sun ripened whole crushed cider apples then patiently nurtured to create a smooth, delicious cider that is fruity in taste and bursting with flavour.

Dorset Nectar has won many local and prestigious awards and always look to craft new cider blends and create something different. They produce 13 different ciders, made with a passion for the traditional methods of heritage cider making in Dorset that comes with years of research, a love for refreshing wholesome cider and a lot of late night cider tastings.

Cider Tours and Tasting

You can enjoy a tour of the cider farm with tastings of delicious apple juice. Stroll through the orchards and learn about the techniques and practices on an organic farm (weather permitting). The entire process from apple to crisp golden nectar is explained, with a tour of the bottling, kegging, pressing and harvesting equipment and facilities. Finish with sampling the range of craft ciders with one of their resident cider masters on hand to answer any questions.

The cider farm is open Monday to Saturday and tours run on select days at 11am and cost £8 per person. The tours last 1.5 hours, dogs are welcome on leads and under 18s go free and are welcome to try apple juice. The orchard is a 10 minute walk from an excellent pub lunch in Waytown at the Hare & Hounds.

  • Very peaceful Park

    The wildlife is stunning, we were visited by the ducks on a regular basis which was lovely. Our visit was very enjoyable and we will definitely be back in the future!

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough!

    This is simply our favorite touring park along the south coast. The location couldn't be better with views to die for and an abundance of fresh sea air. The park is spic and span and extremely well kept with very friendly staff.

    This is by far the best Holiday Park I have been to. The views are breath taking with easy access to the beach and nice coastal walks to West Bay. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, then this is the place to come.

  • A little bit of heaven!

    Golden Cap is a little bit of heaven. The views are awesome, right next to the sea. It's all relaxed and low key just how we like it.

  • Fantastic Park

    10 out of 10 is not enough for this Holiday Park. We have been here 3 times and we love it more and more every time. The park has all you need, with some pitches overlooking the sea and a great restaurant.

  • Lovely tranquil campsite

    The location was great as we could easily walk to the village or local beaches through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend this campsite to families for a peaceful and safe stay.
