Celebrating nature’s bounty, this year’s club theme, the owner of this  pretty tiled cottage from Therfield has picked ripe damsons from the tree in the garden and turned them into delicious jams to sell at the garden gate.

What could be more perfect to tie in with this year’s Club theme than gathering cobnuts (a cultivated variety of hazelnut) in the garden of this small fifteenth-century, timber-framed Kentish Hall House from Chiddingstone?
