Autumn at Abernant

Autumn at Abernant

After such a beautiful summer it can feel pretty dismal facing the prospect of a cold damp winter but the precursor to winter is autumn and just WHAT an autumn it has been.
The weather has been mild and as we drift into November we are still surrounded by the most beautiful display of colour in the trees.

Abernant is surrounded by woodland and looks across the Wye Valley towards Aberedw Rocks and each walk and view is a golden, orange, red, russet and ochre joy. The leaves are still on the trees but beginning to tumble in pretty drifts of crunchy leaves which leave carpets of deep gold.
In the garden we are blessed to have some very fine specimen trees which are stunning in all their autumnal glory. The acers astound me with their glowing red foliage and our beautiful copper beech shines with deep rusty gold leaves.

Having time to sit or wander and enjoy the garden is one of the joys of working at Abernant but as guests you, too, could enjoy this wondrous splendour.
We do still have some late availability dates in November and December  so please do get in touch.
