Here I present the cream of the crop, farmstays with a difference: While they offer the pleasures of a beautiful old house, they also cater to our increased demands with upscale amenities and attitude.

After all that hearty food, it is high time for a little outdoor activity – and the mild month of October provides the perfect conditions to enjoy some late-season sport before winter arrives.
