Our stay of the week – Tudor Farmhouse, Gloucestershire

Both welcoming and relaxing, the stylish converted Tudor Farmhouse has retained many of its original features. Fresh neutral walls with flashes of exposed stonework are framed by high-quality wooden fixtures, which tie in beautifully with the luxury Bronte fabrics that appear throughout. Not only does it have a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence tucked comfortably under its arm, Condé Nast Traveller also lauded the hotel in a glittering review and Sawday’s named it a previous winner of English Hotel of the Year. It also won the Good Hotel Guide’s Cesar award for Country Hotel of the Year 2018.

Just as you’d expect from the previous winners of a Cotswold Life Hotel Restaurant of the Year and Taste of the West Gold Award 2016, plus holders of two AA Rosettes, Tudor Farmhouse serves up quality seasonal produce cooked simply and to perfection. Some of the ingredients even come out of the hotel’s own kitchen garden and grounds, and the team try their hardest to source the rest from within a 20-mile radius. Head chef, Rob Cox, was also awarded South West Chef of the Year 2017.

All is set to please in the well-sized guest rooms, too: they offer a fresh neutral colour palette, monsoon showers, Nespresso coffee machines and flashes of original features, from exposed stonework to ancient beams – all setting the comfortable, farmhouse tone. Upgrade your room type and you could even expect to find roll-top baths, seating areas and four-poster beds among the lovely features.

Surrounded by the Royal Forest of Dean, and next to the Wye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Tudor Farmhouse beckons as a luxurious country escape to the heart of Gloucestershire. Found in the village of Clearwell, near Monmouth and Ross-on Wye, it’s an ideal destination for escaping the urban humdrum in favour of soaking up rolling rural landscapes. The hotel’s even been highlighted as an Editor’s Choice for walking in The Good Hotel Guide 2018.

We’re offering a stay in a Hen room from £50 per person, per night, including breakfast.
