The Fabric of the British Summertime

Slow down. Forget your work calendar. The pace down here is determined by the tides, the seasons, the weather. By Mother Nature – the way it always has been. Tradition weaves through the Cornish coastline, the setting for Schöffel Country’s Spring/Summer. Rugged cliffs, narrow hedgerow-lined lanes and sweeping sandy beaches provide the backdrop for the daily hum of British coastal life.

Watch the trawlers and crabbers head out at first light and then return on the tide with the day’s catch. Hear the whisper of the wind and waves, the peep of the Oyster Catcher and cries of Herring Gulls echo through the crags and secluded coves of the wave-beaten shoreline. Meet the local people working the land and sea in the time-honoured fashion of generations past. This is the Fabric of the British Summertime.  

The Fabric of the British Summertime

The salty tang on the air and the melancholy cries of herring gulls as the crabbers return on the tide. 

The hum of the hive and the heady scent of heather and honey. The sweet crunch of the season’s first apples. The rich, damp earthiness of potatoes fresh from the ground, and the dusty haze and long days of the grain harvest.  

 

From the crags of the Cornish coastline through the golden fields to the heathery Scottish Highlands, the threads of British country and coastal life are woven into the landscapes. The Fabric of British Summertime is a rich tapestry telling the story of the champions of coastal and country life, both man and beast. Presenting the latest collection for Summer by Schöffel Country.
