Cooler, shorter days are upon us but wonderful autumn colour is also prevailing at the moment and should be enjoyed and celebrated! There is a lot to be getting on with in the garden as we prepare for the winter ahead, and also for next spring, as far off as it may seem.
Prepare for the autumn and winter ahead… Read the rest of this entry »

We’ve embraced the onset of autumn with a Seasalt pumpkin carving competition!
Our design studios and shops have been a buzz with creativity. We’ve been cutting, carving and painting our way to make sure we had the best pumpkins in the business!
After a couple of weeks of planning and a few days of execution judgement day arrived.
We voted by ballot and these were our winners…

All around Cornwall echoes of our mining past are visible on the landscape. Whether you’re in a little village or taking a stroll along the clifftops, you’ll never be far from a tall, brick engine house. One of the most beautiful walks around Cornwall’s historic landscape is The Great Flat Lode Trail. Found between Camborne and Pool, the circular route passes some of the best preserved mining buildings in Cornwall. Read the rest of this entry »
We’re super excited to be opening our newest shop in the historic market town of Sevenoaks in Kent. When we first visited the new shop we couldn’t help but fall in love with the town. We spent a few days exploring the area; wandering around the streets, testing cafés, and collating some of our top spots to share with you. Read the rest of this entry »
Gail works in our Lichfield sale shop and recently took part in a charity walk for Parkinson’s UK. In January this year, her husband Dave was diagnosed with Parkinson’s so she was determined to help raise much needed funds for the charity. Gail decided on a 6 mile challenge event to start her fundraising and began her training by taking walks in the morning before work and on her days off to build herself up to complete the challenge.
“I am very proud of Gail,” said Branch Manager Lisa, “Gail said the news about Dave turned their worlds upside down, but they live their lives for the present, still go on some amazing holidays together and have lots of fun and laughs.”
Here’s Gail showing off her well earned medal and has already raised in excess of £500 with donations still coming through.
Neil and Sophie had a great couple of weeks exploring Brittany earlier this year.
On their way to the ferry port in Plymouth to make their crossing to France, Neil and his father-in-law, John, stopped off for a bite to eat at the River Cottage Canteen & Deli and had the good fortune of seeing Harbottle and Jonas perform live.
The exceptionally talented duo, Dave and Freya, are from Totnes and have been performing their toe-tapping folk music across the country this year. BBC Devon introducing have even described them as ‘phenomenal’!
After some lovely food and music, Neil and John strolled off, only to bump into the singers down on the wharf! They shared a few laughs (and a cheeky roll-up – shhh don’t tell Sophie!) and the night was all the better for meeting them.
Head over to their website to see the pair perform and check out their tour dates: www.harbottleandjonas.com
