Is Autumn a good time to walk in England?

We are often asked this question. Autumn (or fall) draws in from early September to early November. It is a magical time, a change of season that marks nature’s spectacular harvest, abundance, before nature falls asleep, waiting to awake in the spring.


The first hints of change are September’s damp, misty mornings. As the sun rises it pierces through and burns the mist away. On the air is the smell of ripening fruits and berries, in the local churches its all about the harvest festival.

Mid to end October the trees turn with their burnt oranges, reds and yellows. At the end of October the clocks go back and the evenings draw in. Nothing beats snuggling by an open fire in one of our country inns, enjoying some local seasonal produce. Roasts and stews make a welcome return to the menus. Enjoy a taste of the hedgerows in a crumble for dessert!

The first frosts and dark evenings, we mark November 05, Guy Fawkes attempt to burn the House of Parliament down, with fireworks and bonfires. It’s a great time to be in the countryside and a part of rural life.
