Tudor Farmhouse Forest of Dean

This hotel is where you come to relax away from hectic city life. Life moves slowly in the rural village of Clearwell.

Here you can reconnect with nature and soothe your soul in peaceful surroundings, away from clogged traffic and high-rise buildings.

Wander around the 16th-century stone buildings and explore the gardens, orchard and allotments at leisure.

The whole site has an air of ‘The Good Life’ about it, especially when you stumble across their free-range hens.

There’s a range of outdoor pursuits and pleasant walks in the surrounding area that will keep the outdoor lovers happy.

Alternatively, you can unwind, dine and soak in the tub if you are looking for a blissful weekend of doing almost nothing. This is a UK staycation with options.

Tudor Farmhouse facilities

Tudor Farmhouse oozes cosiness. The inviting reception and bar area come complete with an open fire, comfortable armchairs and board games.

If you want to venture outside, they also have wellies for walking and warming blankets.

For a relaxing afternoon, why not get comfortable in the bar and order a beautifully presented Charcuterie board from the grazing menu?

I would also recommend ordering a bottle of wine from their extensive wine list. This comprehensive list features bottles from small artisan winemakers if you want to unleash your inner wine critic.

Nodding approvingly at wine recommendations is my husband’s favourite thing to do.

This is despite the fact that his favourite tipple is normally whatever is currently on offer in Aldi.

Bar staff are also on hand to make personal recommendations. They will direct you to the “What We’re Drinking” section of the list.

It’s small, personal touches such as these that make a stay here really memorable.

Afternoon tea

Spoil yourself with an elegant afternoon tea for two at Tudor Farmhouse.

Feast upon a delicious selection of finger sandwiches, homemade cakes and patisseries and warm scones with clotted cream. It is utterly divine.

Their afternoon tea is served with tea or coffee or if you are feeling flush, you can purchase an accompanying glass of champagne.

I personally feel that their afternoon tea is best enjoyed outside in their picturesque garden area.

Enjoy the blossoms and the sounds of bees buzzing in the summer. In the winter, grab a blanket and get cosy as you feast upon the finest scones.

Dinner at Tudor Farmhouse

You should not miss the chance to dine at Tudor Farmhouse. Their head chef ensures that quality and locally-sourced ingredients are used in their seasonal dishes.

Farmhouse meets upscale dining here with flickering candles, exposed stone walls, and slightly hushed tones. This contrasts beautifully with the scent of homemade food wafting the dining room.

Dinner menu Tudor Farmhouse

Most products are sourced from producers within a 20-mile radius of the hotel.

This means that you can be assured that you are eating fresh ingredients and supporting local producers.

Typical dinner dishes include pan-fried duck breast, Ricotta and spinach raviolo, Stone bass with herb and nut crust and Rolled chicken with chicken & tarragon mousse.

If you have room, I would recommend rounding off your meal with a mouthwatering dessert and carefully crafted cocktail?

Typical dessert offerings include frozen white chocolate mousse with spiced blackberries, buttermilk pannacotta and chocolate delice.

Make sure to order a carefully crafted cocktail to end your evening by sipping something exquisite.
