Escape to an elegant country retreat, set among six acres of verdant grounds in the Gloucestershire countryside, including breakfast and optional dinner

You could spend an afternoon simply strolling Stonehouse Court Hotel's lawns and gardens, but if it's the countryside beyond that entices you, then order a picnic from the hotel and head out for a day of walking – there's plenty of good spots to aim for in the area. Explore Stroud's canal by boat or hop on a bike and pedal your way along the tow paths. If that sounds like too much work then a horse trek over the hills could be the ideal way to discover those views and, for the adventurous among us, get a new perspective on the landscape and have a go at paragliding.

For golfers, Cotswold Edge Golf Club and Minchinhampton Golf Course are both nearby, so be sure to book your game before you go for something to look forward to. This is all assuming you're able to drag yourself away from the idyll of Stonehouse Court Hotel's open fire, where you can while away a few hours considering the newspapers, before deciding on whether to enjoy lunch or dinner (or both) at the hotel's restaurant.
