Autumn comforts in the East of England

As the air begins to chill and the days draw in, autumn is where the magic happens. Keep cosy and warm as you enjoy the comforts of the season, from mulled apple to fruity crumbles and pumpkin soup, all of which will make you feel warm inside. It's time to treat yourself.

Food and drink to get you in the mood for autumn 

With the changing season comes a change in menu. Autumn sees the peak of harvest so what better time to indulge in some seasonal food and drink? After a refreshing stroll head to one of our cafés for a warming hot chocolate, fruit crumble, casserole or hearty slice of cake.

Keep warm around the fire 

Lighting your log fire for the first time is a truly autumnal milestone. Did you know you can buy seasoned firewood harvested from Blickling Estate and Hatfield Forest? Alternatively, enjoy a short break in one of our cosy holiday cottages with a log burner to keep you warm.

Retail options

Curl up with something cosy  

With the evening's drawing in earlier, autumn is very much about cosy nights in. For this you'll need a warm blanket for extra snugness. Our range of warm blankets are available in gorgeous patterns, stunning colours and allsorts of materials including wool and mohair.
