Autumn is Starting

Here are a few snaps that we've taken this week in our garden at The Malthouse B&B. Autumn is one of our favorite times of the year - we just love the colours outside. Alton is particularly pretty at this time of year.

I think you'll agree that the plants and flowers in our garden are still looking lovely!

This old tree is our orchard is absolutely loaded with apples that are ready to pick. It's the best crop the tree has produced for a few years. Perhaps the dry and wet spells of weather we've had this year have suited it!
The only downside to Autumn is that the weather can turn cooler. So far though it's been pretty mild here. Just what we want so we can get a few jobs done in our garden before Winter arrives!

The Malthouse at night

Over the years we've taken lots of photographs of our house during the day but not too many at night! Thought we'd show you a couple of photos that we've taken recently just after it's gone dark.

In our opinion the house looks as lovely at night as it does during the day - but then I guess we would think that!
As you can see we like lights.
If you're arriving at our B&B after dark the lights make it nice and easy for you to spot us!
You can't miss us!!!
Our car park (at the rear of the house) also has plenty of lighting.
Looking for accommodation in Alton? Why not call us to check availability?
