The Best Autumn Days Out in the North East

Autumn is, without a doubt, my favourite season and I just love getting out and about exploring the region in Fall. Skipping through piles of leaves, enjoying the sunshine and eating all of the seasonal treats, the North East truly comes alive during the Autumn months and my list of things to do is never ending. The best Autumn Days out in the North East are enjoyed wearing your favourite boots, in the company of your loved ones and carrying a hot cup of something lovely.

I hope you enjoy some of my Autumn recommendations and if you have any places that you love to head for the best Autumn days out in the North East, I'd love to hear them.

Autumn Wreath Making

If I had any kind of crafting talent (unfortunately I really don't!) I would definitely be booking myself on to a seasonal flower course and I would absolutely love a beautiful Autumnal wreath for my front door. The stunning orange and red berries of Autumn would make beautiful displays for our house.

Pumpkin Picking

You can't really talk about the best Autumn Days out in the North East without mentioning pumpkin picking can you? Every year I say we're going to go and every year we don't quite make it so I'm yet to tick this one off my bucket list. Picking your own pumpkin to decorate is one of the greatest ways to celebrate Autumn.

Supper Club

Autumn is my favourite time for supper clubs, eating seasonal food with likeminded foodies is the best way to spend an evening and here in the North East we have some fantastic places to enjoy pop up nights. Snuggle up by candlelight, dive into some delicious local produce and make some new friends, if you're yet to enjoy a supper club experience Autumn is a great time for your first.

Red Squirrel Spotting

I'd never seen a red squirrel in real life until I relocated to the North East and now I've been lucky enough to see a fair few. Although they are pretty easy to spot in the region each time we see one it still feels really special and we love taking the opportunity to go red squirrel spotting. Autumn is prime time to see red squirrels as they scuttle down from the trees to search for food for the Winter, if you're yet to see one of these beauties this is a must for your Autumn bucket list!

Autumnal Walking

I could happily walk for hours and hours during the Autumn months, skipping my way through crispy leaves and admiring the stunning colours is the best way to enjoy one of natures true wonders and I like to get out as much as I can during the season to admire the stunning scenery before it gives way to the dark Winter months.

Dining at the Alnwick Treehouse

Dining in a treehouse, doesn't that just sound like the Autumnal dream, and luckily here in the North East that dream can become a reality thanks to The Treehouse at Alnwick (which I STILL haven't been to!). Swinging rope bridges, log fires and fairylights, dining amongst the trees sounds so beautiful and I'm determined we're going to get there before Autumn is over!

Woodland Staycation at Hesleyside Huts

Sometimes a day just isn't enough for an Autumn adventure! If you want to truly throw yourself into Autumn then I highly recommend a woodland staycation at Hesleyside Huts in Northumberland - a luxury glamping experience amongst the trees with a cosy hut for two, red squirrels on your doorstep and the opportunity to enjoy the perfect night skies.
