October brings the promise of one of the sweetest events in Escot's calendar - Chocolate Letterboxing. Most readers will already be familiar with this choccy challenge which is a well-established family favourite in Devon's Celebration of Food. For the uninitiated, Chocolate Letterboxing is a treasure hunt which takes contestants searching through the beautiful gardens and woodlands of Escot. No booking is needed: just turn up and full Escot letterboxing instructions are provided. What's different is that everyone finding all their hidden stamps receives a choccy prize in return for just a contribution to the Tale Valley Trust charity.

Chocolate Letterboxing- the perfect Autumn treat!
