In the deepening autumn, before the trees are laid bare, a crispness permeates the air; a reminder that winter is waiting in the wings. As fading leaves are blown away, the landscape awaits the arrival of frosted mornings and velvet night skies. With temperatures falling away, our November/December issue relishes the chance to wrap up and explore the seasonal transition outdoors, with the welcome of a cosy hearthside chair on returning home.
Discover how to keep the flames aglow from an expert on preparing kindling, and spend relaxing evenings in the warmth while knitting a pretty cushion cover.

Savour the buttery richness of a light, fluffy crumpet or enjoy breadsticks with the children, freshly cooked outside over an open fire to keep off the chill.

Travel to the windswept North Yorkshire coast to explore the narrow streets of Staithes, encircled by a sheltering arm of rugged cliffs.
