The White Company’s latest clothing collection comprises the perfect capsule for an Autumn weekend away. Discover our favourite farmhouse retreats to escape to this season (and what to wear while you’re there).
Autumn heralds the start of ‘staying in season’: we retreat indoors, spending long evenings in front of the fire, hands cradling steaming mugs of tea and spicy, warming soups. There’s a plethora of natural beauty once you step outside, too: come Sunday, there’s nothing we love more than rambling walks spent kicking up jewel-toned leaves, soaking up the changing season.
As the weather changes, it’s time to update your wardrobe with the season’s key pieces, like our just-in collection – inspired by a country-farmhouse retreat. Escaping the city is one of the best ways to get into an Autumn state of mind, so here are three of our favourite tried-and-tested destinations.
The authentic experience
Located in the chocolate-box Cotswolds village of Kingham, Daylesford Farm combines a sustainable, family run farming business with a hugely popular organic shop. For a complete Cotswolds experience, little beats staying in one of the beautifully converted farmhouses – meticulously restored with their original features.
Best for: Those who like authentic, yet indulgent, experiences. A complimentary spa treatment is included in every stay, and you can attend cooking classes and enrichment workshops, too.
The off-grid escape
Nestled deep in 190 acres of southwest Scottish countryside, Brockloch Eco Farm’s location is almost impossibly picturesque. Situated on a small working farm, guests can choose to stay in a treetop retreat or timber cabin – both sustainably run with solar-powered radio, a wood-burning stove and blissful natural goose-down duvets and bed linen. Expect to spend your days taking bracing walks, roaming the rolling hills and exploring the abundant wildlife.
Best for: A romantic escape that’s truly off-grid – there’s no wi-fi or TV for miles (and we mean miles) around.
The wellness retreat
Much more than just a farmhouse, 42 Acres offers three-night stays to nourish body and mind – the perfect zen escape. Named for the extensive countryside which it is set in, it runs on renewable-energy sources, and each room is outfitted with reclaimed and recycled materials. Guests enjoy a list of complimentary benefits: from a personal chef to vinyasa yoga sessions and enlightening workshops.
Best for: If you’re city-tired and stressed of mind, this could be the key to resetting your body in the most idyllic of surroundings.
