Crankbroth­ers y12 Made up of 12 com­po­nents, in­clud­ing eight wrenches and two screw­drivers, this sleek mul­ti­tool is sturdy, sim­ple to op­er­ate, and should fit in your pocket (£19.36; www.bikes24. co.uk).

Hi­plok DX Y No lock is com­pletely thief-proof, but the DX has a dou­ble-lock­ing mech­a­nism that makes it par­tic­u­larly tough to break. It’s de­signed to clip onto a strap or belt when you’re not us­ing it – and if you lose the keys, Hi­plok can make you a new set (£70; www.hi­plok.com). The For­est Side, a Gothic man­sion in Gras­mere, Cum­bria, does “a nice line in con­tem­po­rary lux­ury”.The tast­ing menus in its Miche­lin-starred restau­rant are “in­spired” by the land­scape (from £189 for a dou­ble; www.the­for­est­side.com). The Barn at Round­hurst is an oak-framed, 17th cen­tury barn in West Sus­sex, done up in “rus­tic-chic” style. Can­dlelit din­ners fea­ture the farm’s own beef and pork (from £98; www.the­bar­na­tround­hurst.com) The White­brook over­looks “a secluded sliver of the Wye Val­ley”. It’s es­sen­tially a Miche­lin-starred restau­rant with rooms, and serves mod­ern dishes with un­usual in­gre­di­ents (think lamb with kohlrabi and ram­sons), and a great break­fast (from £223, half-board; www.the­white­brook.co.uk). Glaze­brook House, in Dart­moor, has un­usual rooms (there are mir­rors made from air­craft en­gines) and “dra­matic” food. The chef, An­ton Piotrowski, is a for­mer win­ner of Masterchef: The Pro­fes­sion­als (from £219; www.glaze­brook­house.com).
