…we are well into the crisp, bright days of autumn and have plenty of ideas for turning your home into the ultimate comfort zone.

tales from the blacksmith’s cottage

My parents arrange their final night in our ancient blacksmith’s cottage for a week when I’m out of the country, so there’s no ceremonial last goodbye to the old place, which houses every childhood memory my brother and I share.

The plums and cherries got a light pruning back in the summer, but November, when we’re settling the smallholding in for winter, is the perfect month to tackle the apple and pear trees. It can be daunting if you’ve never done it before, but most fruit trees are pretty forgiving. Both The…
