Autumn highlights at A la Ronde

Autumn colour Killerton generci

With autumn just around the corner, A la Ronde starts to change. From fun filled summer days in the orchard, hay meadow and house, the grounds start to change colour and ambience as autumn sets in.

Though the sun is getting lower in the sky and the days are getting shorter, the grounds at A la Ronde is still as beautiful as ever.


With much of the garden blooming into September there is still ample for the flower devotee to see.

What could be better after an autumn walk around the meadow than a hot cuppa, homemade cake, warming soup or hearty lunch? You’ll find lots of treats on menu in our tea-room during autumn.
