Enjoy an autumnal walk through Croft's ancient parkland as fiery colours start to emerge on the trees and be spooked as Hallowe'en approaches at the end of October.

Croft comes alive in autumn, with burnt oranges, bright yellows and deep reds emerging on the trees around the estate. Pop on your walking boots and feel the crunch of autumn leaves underfoot, host a conker match or two and warm up in the tea-room with hearty, harvest-themed recipes.

Ask at the Carpenter's tea-room for a take-away coffee or tea and enjoy while strolling through the wood pasture or around the ramparts at Croft Ambrey. Try making some wild art with fallen leaves in the natural play area and tick off one of your 50 things while you're at it.

Here at Croft, we are proud to house the National Trust's only working vineyard. Ask our garden team about this year's harvest on your next visit and maybe even pop into the shop to buy a bottle of our very own Croft wine.
