Ten Years Celebrating The Best Of Our Region Sunday 6th September 2015 11am – 4pm
It’ll soon be time to pitch the marquees ready for our annual Autumn Country Market in September. This will be our 10th year hosting over 45 stalls of antiques, art, artisan foods and animals in the gardens and to celebrate we have put together a bit of run down of what to see. Don’t forget to keep up with all things Autumn Country Market on our Facebook page!
Delicious artisan foods
This year there will be a whole host of yummy cakes and treats, tasty preserves and jams and award-winning fresh produce from local farms and small holders.

Arts, Crafts and Collectables
We are very lucky to have so many talented local crafts people in attendance this year. With beautiful jewellery, bespoke pottery, unusual gifts and crafts, unique bags, hats and scarfs and even a collection of vintage Teddy Bears looking for new homes on offer. You’re sure to find something special to take home with you.

Home and garden
If you’re looking for something new and exciting for your home or garden, or even a completely unique present, there’ll be something for you! There will be plants, pots and seeds for sale in the courtyard, stalls of walking sticks and shepherds crooks from IKR Stickman, plant supports and willow garden sculptures, handmade rustic furniture, holistic candles and plenty of gorgeous home wares.

And if all of those wonderful shopping opportunities weren’t enough, there will be live owls and birds of prey from Raptor Rescue for you to meet. Talented young blacksmith Alec Steele will be showcasing his work and celebrated Harpist Eleanor Turner will be playing beautiful music near the tearoom.
PLACES TO EAT AND STAY
The Tearoom will be serving light lunches and cream teas all day, but if you fancied something a little more filling, The Cholmeley Arms in the next village is lovely local pub. It is also part of the Easton Estate and is famous for it’s friendly atmosphere and well stocked farm shop. If you are planning on visiting us from further afield Barnsdale Lodge Hotel are doing a special discounted rate of £70 per night (including breakfast) for any of our visitors. Simply mention you are visiting the Autumn Country Market at the time of booking.
