Walking in the Highlands, cider making in Devon, wine tasting in Tuscany … autumn is the perfect time to escape
On the edge of the ancient Forest of Dean, Tudor Farmhouse makes for an atmospheric autumn bolthole, with 20 cosy, characterful bedrooms, open fires and a restaurant serving up food sourced from within a 20-mile radius. This autumn the hotel will be offering guests the chance to join its in-house forager searching for wild garlic, berries, mushrooms and herbs in the surrounding woodland. The hotel’s head chef will then cook up a gourmet lunch using the foraged ingredients.
