Furners Farm can be found in Elcombe which is off the beaten track. As you find your way to your destination along single track lanes that go up and down the Slad Valley, It is a mini adventure just getting there with such beautiful views of the idyllic countryside to each side. If you want a 'get away from it all' experience with the possibility of visiting Stroud and its markets(10-15 mins away) then this is the place. The peace of this beautiful Laurie Lee, Cotswold countryside ('Cider with Rosie') is amazing. It was the beginning of autumn when I went and the trees were just turning. The hosts, Simon and Julie provided a wonderful environment in which to 'chill' and replenish my energies. Delicious breakfasts were served in a cosy room overlooking the apple orchard to one side and Slad on the other side. The evening I arrived Simon was pressing apples in the meadow- delicious juice. There were lashings of hot water and a cosy bedroom with a well stocked book shelf and plenty of tea and coffee facilities.
The surrounding nature is so bountiful I look forward to returning time and time again...and....I will find a copy of the book to read.... Cider with Rosie by Laurie Lee. What did I like least......leaving! Deborah xxMore
