Come for a real taste of rural life here in Gloucestershire. Visit a local farm, hear the experiences of modern-day farming families, and turn your own hand to some traditional rural skills in the 19th century grounds of Lindors.

If you’d like to know more about the countryside, this is the programme for you! Come and enjoy a visit to a local Gloucestershire farm, and meet those who live and work in the agricultural industry today. Kate Humble’s own home and farm is close by (‘Humble by Nature’), and a trip there will give you a real experience of country life. Back at the hotel, Head Gardener Aaron Carter will deliver some rural skills workshops in Lindors’ beautiful landscaped grounds: have a go at hedge-laying, or dry stone walling, and other activities. When you need a break from the outdoors, enjoy an afternoon tea around Lindors log fire, and appreciate the comforts of our cosy country house hotel.

Meet one of our guides....

Maeve Hamilton Hercod

“I have enjoyed living overseas for many years, but whenever I can I love to come back to Devon, the county of my birth. These days I am happily settled in Bath where I have family and work as a guide. My career has taken me from teaching to broadcasting to running sailing courses and many more mundane things along the way, so I hope that all this experience can help me to keep tours running smoothly.”
