Here we are, September already. The summer is behind us and the first steps into autumn are to be taken. The falling leaves, the morning dew on the grass, the perfect ‘V’ formations of geese heading south for the winter are all signs that we are preparing for autumn and winter.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that the whole country has to lock itself away for the coming months! Oh no! At Beechwood, we’re positively excited at the prospect. The changing seasons bring with it fresh demands and ideas where alternative features can come to the fore.
September, of course, carries the excitement of the children returning to school, rejuvenated and relaxed after their lengthy summer holidays. New school year, new class, sometimes a new school! Those of you without the burden of the daily school run now get the opportunity to venture off somewhere without the pressure of falling over the little darlings at our crowded tourist destinations! And why not come to East Sussex. By jingo – you could even stay here at Beechwood B&B and be served with gigantic portions of luxury, comfort and care!
There is still bundles to see and do here in east Sussex during September. It’s the start of the carnival season where the local bonfire societies take centre stage to provide spectacle. It kicks off with the Uckfield Carnival on Saturday 3rd September, just 3 miles from us http://www.uckfieldcarnival.co.uk and culminates in the massive Lewes Bonfire on Guy Fawkes Night (November 5th)http://www.lewesbonfirecelebrations.com .
Of course, for those of you of a more sedate disposition, and wanting to avoid the throngs and heartstopping firework bangs, September is the perfect time to visit the many Nation Trust properties and gardens we have to offer in east Sussex. Beechwood could be the ideal central base from which to explore. We have Sheffield Park gardens as our must see destination during there autumn months. The walks around the lakes are beautiful at any time of year but during autumn – WOW!WOW!WOW! The colours are of jaw dropping beauty and when you witness the reflections of these colours in the lakes it simply adds to the overall joy.https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/sheffield-park-and-garden http://www.visitsoutheastengland.com/things-to-do/sheffield-park-garden-p49743.
So please don’t just sit indoors waiting for the long dreariness of winter to hit home, take yourself off while we still have the chance of an Indian summer. It’ll help you prepare for the seemingly endless wait for next summer!
