Sip, Snack Snooze - Lydney and the Severn

Start the day with coffee and sweet treats at Taurus Crafts near Lydney, where artisan businesses have gathered. Sip an espresso with a side order of award-winning chocolate from The Chocolate Bar. This resident artisan maker had both the Pistachio and Lemon and Pecan Praline Caramel favours win gold in the 2018 Taste of the West Product Awards. When it’s time to hit a savoury note head 20 mins up the River Severn estuary to Severn & Wye Smokery Barn for a mixed smoked platter for lunch which include the famous Severn & Wye smoked salmon. Less than 10 minutes away is five-star B&B Blaisdon House, with walking trails from the doorstep it’s easy to head out for a pre-dinner stroll before dining close to ‘home’ at The Red Hart (1-minute walk) on local Wild Boar sausages or opting for the vegan menu.
