Autumn is the best time of the year to explore the amazing trees within the 30 acres of grounds at the Hotel. A history of Gliffaes can be told through the various tree plantings that have taken place over the last three to four hundred years. Come and admire the splender and learn about some magnificent specimens and find out what we are doing to enhance and improve the wonderful collection of trees.
This is a very gentle walk of about an hour and a half over the lawns, through the fields and amongst the trees, all the while taking in the the autumn colours, the views of the river Usk and the hills beyond . Mostlty flat, definitely not strenuous and suitable for almost anyone and well behaved dogs on leads are welcome. Wear gum boots if it’s damp. Please be ready
Rather like our summer grills on the terrace we want this to be a jolly celebration of food, wine and conversation. I am going to try and seat everyone on two long tables with some ‘help-yourself-and-pass along-style’ dishes with ingredients from the garden reflecting Autumn and all it has to offer. Red and white wine will be included. £30 per head.
Bring your friends and make it a day out.

Boris has spoken and it sounds as if ENGLAND will not be opening hotels until 17th May, I assume WALES will follow suit.
