Make lasting memories this autumn

The summer may be coming to an end but there’s still plenty of time to enjoy the great outdoors with your family and friends. As the long days draw out we still have the beautiful, crisp sunny days; perfect for a long stroll with your loved ones.

September will see the first of the estate’s damson harvest. Why not see what damson recipes you can discover and have some fun harvesting some lovely plump ones on the Brockhampton Estate with something of your own creation to follow?

The estate will be in the spectacular transition between summer and autumn in October, with the leaves gently fading from green to all sorts of browns, reds and orange. Embrace the seasonal crossover and revisit your fond childhood memories of the crunching beneath your feet, trying to catch a falling leaf and making new memories with your loved ones.

Regardless of age, we all feel life rushing by and what better way to recoup and revitalise by simply spending time with nature? On October 7, we are hosting a photography day where adults can learn how to capture the beauty of the surrounding estate.

The end of October will bring Hallowe’en, a time of year enjoyed by most. Here on the estate little ones can enjoy broomstick making with natural materials whilst our adult visitors can enjoy an Evening ghost tour of the manor house.

Fresh air is quite often the best cure for all; enjoy a warm bowl of soup and your softest bed socks as you remember your wonderful autumn memories at Brockhampton Estate.
