Go wild in the country at Woolley Grange – a luxury family-friendly hotel based in a former Jacobean manor house on the edge of the Cotswolds – and feast on a sumptuous Sunday lunch that celebrates locally-sourced, seasonal produce at the peak of its bountiful best, much of it gathered from the hotel’s own Victorian kitchen garden. With 14 acres of gardens to explore, children’s activity areas to have fun in and lots of friendly animals to make friends with, this is set to be an unforgettable harvest festival for the whole family.
