Pick of the patch

Autumn at Stoneywell is a delight for all of the senses: from the feel of the glowing inglenook fire in the sitting room warming your cheeks to the sound of golden leaves crunching underfoot during a stroll around the woods. And, just as your fingers begin to numb and you can see your breath, a quick dash into the tearoom for a much-welcomed hot chocolate - complete with obligatory marshmallows, of course!
