Seasonal items to inspire and refresh your home

Every season, a new collection is released inspired by a National Trust property or outdoor space. Inspiration can come from many areas - the flora or fauna of an outdoor site, the detail on a wooden panel or a piece of embroidery. Every collection has a story and a heritage, reflecting the diversity of the properties looked after by the National Trust.

This season, the theme is Riverlands. The exclusive prints have taken inspiration from rich foliage-lined riverbanks, grass wetlands and the buzzing wildlife found in these tranquil places. Through elegant textures, bold hues and intricate details, the collection celebrates how healthy rivers, streams and wetlands support the environment and redefine places they run through. The collection also highlights how nature’s waterways nourish and inspire us with their sights and sounds of beauty.

Food and drink treats to take home

If you enjoy a jam, pickle or chutney, then take your pick from the National Trust range. Whether you prefer a classic strawberry jam on your scone, or something a bit more unusual like passionfruit curd, you'll find something to appeal to your taste. Or if savoury tickles your tastebuds more, then why not try the pear, orange and ginger chutney with your cheese and crackers? There are plenty of ciders, juices and British wines to accompany your choice.
