Things to see & do
British food fortnight
Have you been blackberrying yet this year? If not, you'd better get your skates on as they'll soon be over for another year. They may prickle a little, but it'll be worth it when you're tucking into a tasty crumble.
Early evening skies
We know that autumn sunsets can light up the landscape with colour, but what about later when the dark nights draw in? Well, we love those early evenings – they’re amazing in Northumberland, especially with its Dark Sky status. So join us along Hadrian’s Wall and look to the night skies for a spot of stargazing.
Read all about it! We've used our creative license to write up a few news articles about some of the colourful characters behind the places we look after in the North East & Yorkshire. They're based on true stories and include tales of kidnap, a marriage of the utmost convenience, the extravagant lifestyle of an industrialist and the socialist who gave his estate to the nation.
After a summer of salads, it's time to tuck into something a bit more substantial. We love autumn harvest time as it means our chefs start to cook up some delicious and warming comfort food. From soups and stews with dumplings to apple and cinnamon scones and singing hinnies oozing with butter. Who can resist?
