As our guests, you will be able to spend an afternoon at Astley Vineyard, one of the oldest in the UK, with transport provided there and back, courtesy of The Nest.  Join the Haywood family as they share their passion and tell their stories about the vineyard, then walk with them through their beautiful wooded valley, amongst their 5 acres of vines. These intimate and informative tours are completed with a guided tasting of three of their award winning boutique wines, alongside a sampling of delicious local produce.

Tours usually start at 3 pm and last around 2 hours.  After your tasting, why not stay for a glass of wine on the Astley Vineyard terrace or brand new Wine Garden?  You may also choose to enjoy a meal in one of our local restaurants.  We are only 5 minutes from the village of Ombersley which has no less than four fantastic restaurants/pubs for food lovers.  We are also a short drive from either the market town of Bewdley or the bustling old city of Worcester, which has a fantastic range of independent shops, restaurants and bars.
