Grazia (UK) - - Contents -

Hid­den deep in the woods, Brook House Woods in Brom­yard, Here­ford­shire, bills it­self as the place to es­cape from every­day life – and it de­liv­ers.

THE VIBE Wood­land well­ness. Start your day with yoga led by owner and qual­i­fied teacher Penny and end it with a sound bath un­der the stars. Sleep in a dou­ble bed in a cosy yurt kit­ted out with plush rugs, crisp white linen, wood­burner and DAB ra­dio. Out­side there’s a pri­vate ter­race with comfy chairs and a fire pit, plus an en­suite bath­room with a gen­uinely de­cent shower and snazzy com­post toi­let.

CHECK OUT Take a short drive to Bo­den­ham Lake for a wild swim or pad­dle in a canoe. This na­ture re­serve cur­rently flies un­der the radar of non-lo­cals, so you may well have the place to your­self. The pic­turesque town of Ross-on-wye is only 20 miles away if you fancy an am­ble round the his­toric build­ings and spe­cial­ity shops. Evening en­ter­tain­ment comes in the form of books by the fire or watch a film at the de­light­ful wood­land cinema on-site from May un­til Septem­ber.

EAT If you’re head­ing off-site for the day, pre-or­der a pic­nic full of lo­cal good­ies, served in a ruck­sack (£25 for two). For sup­per, there’s room ser­vice (Moroc­can lamb, chicken curry, etc) or rus­tle up a de­li­cious beef stir-fry, all the in­gre­di­ents sourced from a lo­cal butcher (£14 for two).

THE LOWDOWN Three-night breaks start from £345 for a yurt sleep­ing two. brook­house­woods.com
