There’s something about Autumn that feels almost magical. The sight of leaves changing colours – the warm golds and browns on the trees and the ground – is one to look forward to. But where are the best places to enjoy the spectacle from a UK or Irish Wolsey Lodges B&B this year?
Win the Wolsey Lodges prize for September. This is a two-night stay for two at Boreham House, a multi-award-winning luxury B&B in the heart of 1066 country. Set in the charming East Sussex village of Boreham Street, it is a Grade II listed mansion with magnificent views over its own Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Wales is a country of wonderful contrasts – from vibrant cities to colourful fishing villages and from Britain’s smallest city to its third highest mountain (and the highest in England and Wales). It offers something for everyone.
If you love wandering around beautiful gardens, then Boreham House B&B in East Sussex is the place for you to stay! We have our own gorgeous walled garden and another couple of acres of meadows as well as at least six gardens nearby.
