Celebrate Autumn at Kinver Edge and the Rock Houses

There are lots of inspiring and creative things to do at Kinver Edge this autumn. From russet coloured walks, to pressing apples and making willow lanterns, there’s something for all the family to enjoy at the rock houses.

As the days begin to grow shorter and the colour of nature starts to rust, Kinver Edge is the perfect place to celebrate this magical season. Curious and cosy houses carved out of rock and acres of winding woodland and wild heathland provide the perfect setting for experiencing this special time of year. Cosy up in the tearoom next to our wood burning stove and enjoy an array of seasonal treats such as a 'bonfire latte' or luxury hot chocolate.

Throughout September we will be running mindfulness meditation at the Rock Houses. Autumn is when nature begins to wind down after the buzz of summer, and you can too. With our stunning views being the main focus, our teacher will guide you through mindfulness techniques and teach you to find your inner calm. For those of you that want to get creative, we are also running rag-rug workshops where tools, material and tea and cake are all provided. So join us for a natter next to a roaring fire in our cave homes.

As we reach October, celebrations will kick off with Apple Weekend. Located in our heritage orchard, visitors are welcome to come and try their hand at a bit of apple pressing using a traditional press and have a taste of some freshly squeezed juice. We encourage visitors to please bring your own bottles in order for us to help reduce plastic waste. There will be lots of country crafts for kids, and adults to see and do such as woodturning, blacksmithing, rag-rugging and peg doll making. Grab a slice of apple cake in the tearoom and browse our little shop for gifts for the coming festive period.

In the lead up to Halloween, we invite little visitors to come and make a traditional lantern for you to keep, using willow, paper and fallen leaves. Then on Halloween night, we will hold a magical lantern procession through the spooky winding woodland paths of Kinver Edge following twinkling carved pumpkins until we reach the very top.

If you’re lucky, you might even spot some of our lesser horseshoe bats flitting above the hillfort. Further details of our autumn events can be found in our ‘what’s on’ section.
