Surrounded by the Royal Forest of Dean, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Tudor Farmhouse Hotel 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.
Both welcoming and relaxing, the stylish converted 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.
With 14 acres of farmland to explore, 20 individually charming rooms and a restaurant that won the prestigious prize of Taste of the West Restaurant of the Year 2015 and two AA Rosettes, Tudor Farmhouse Hotel exceeds expectations when it comes to chic countryside retreats. Not only does it have a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence tucked comfortably under its arm, Condé Nast Traveller also lauded the hotel in a recent glittering review and Sawday’s have named it English Hotel of the Year 2016.
Bantam rooms are cosy and stylish, whilst Cockerel rooms are spacious with seating areas, roll-top baths and unique features such as exposed beams or four-poster beds. Suites are even more spacious, with generous seating areas, roll top baths and monsoon showers.
Just as you’d expect from the winners of Cotswold Life Hotel Restaurant of the Year 2013 and a two AA Rosette-winner, Tudor Farmhouse Hotel 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. The team try their hardest to source the rest from within a 20-mile radius.
With country pursuits coming from all angles, this is a location that suits just about every pace, from scenic walks in the Wye Valley and foraging in the hotel’s grounds to water sports at Symonds Yat Rock and indulging in a flutter at Cheltenham Racecourse.
How to Get There
We stayed in the hotel for two nights. The hotel has lots of character with lovely comfortable, clean and well equipped rooms. The staff were very friendly and good choice of breakfast. Would recommend.
What a great hotel, we had a short but lovely stay. Our room was spotless, very comfortable, fabulous shower and good quality bathroom products. We ate at the restaurant, the food and service was excellent.
There is a good pub next door that served decent cask ales.
This was a great location to explore the area by both car and foot.
We intend to return for a longer break.
We have just spent a weekend at this fabulous hotel, the staff cannot enough for you and the food was excellent! Carl on reception at the start was professional and friendly and Sarah along with the other girls made dining a treat! We stayed in the Roost and it was perfect, loved the bath! Cannot rate it enough, they have got all areas covered for a brilliant stay!
