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 chose to eat two evenings in the Restaurant at Tudor Farmhouse, the service and staff were excellent. The food is all locally sourced of good quality and well presented . After having three courses you are not overly full , they do serve delicious warm bread with a small pot of soup as an appetiser. On the downside while our stay was for four days we did not see any change in the menu
This is our fifth stay at this lovely hotel and as usual everything was perfect. The accommodation, food and service were as always excellent and we shall return again soon.
There are marvellous walks from the hotel as well as several places of interest to visit nearby.
Lovely hotel tucked away in pretty area. Excellent food, friendly staff and excellent rooms - couldn't ask for more. Amazing walks along the Wye Valley and back for delicious cream teas. The staff couldn't do enough to make sure you were happy.
About 12 miles from Chepstow racecourse, Tudor Farmhouse hotel is a little gem, tucked away in a beautiful area and within 7 miles of Tintern Abbey. Parking was on site and safe.We stayed in a suite named “The Nest” which was very clean and well appointed. Bed was super comfy. Shower was wonderful rainfall and water was very soft. Breakfast was excellent, lots of locally sourced ingredients and the croissants were warm and fresh. The evening dinner menu offered a varied selection and I chose the pan roasted duck while my wife went for the cod and mussels with sea vegetables. Great wine selection and not overpriced. In summary, a very pleasant stay with no complaints.
I’ve just returned from an overnight stay that I treated my lovely mum to for her Mother’s Day treat & I couldn’t be happier!
The staff were excellent, so friendly & helpful! The room was so cosy & comfortable & I was most impressed with a dinky carton of fresh milk in the fridge (along with 2 complimentary bottles of water) for tea & coffee making rather than the usual long life cartons & a couple of ginger biscuits! The stunning cottage Garden was perfect for an afternoon & pre dinner drink ( I’d have been v happy if there’d been some flavoured gins & special tonics but it wasn’t a big issue!) Especially when we were presented with a very generous & complimentary serving of almonds & olives whilst we chose our meal which was faultless with plenty of veggie options & desert to die for! We were also given bread & an appetiser thrown in too which I wasn’t expecting! Breakfast choices were wonderfully varied & I had the best scrambled egg I’ve ever had it was so creamy & tasty!
On checking out we were presented with a lovely handmade hen biscuit to take home with us- id highly recommend Tudor farmhouse as excellent value for money with amazing quality in every way- keep doing what you’re doing , it works!
