ScaleUp Radio

Nov 20, 2023

Hello everyone, and welcome to another luxury episode of ScaleUp Radio! I'm your host, Granger Forson, and you can find out more about me at or connect with me on LinkedIn.

 In this episode, we are in for an exceptional treat as we pull back the curtains of the hospitality industry with a seasoned pro—Hari Fell, owner of the Tudor Farmhouse Hotel in Clearwell in the Forest of Dean. Hari and her husband have not only stood the test of time with their 20-years ownership of the establishment, but they've also been game changers, offering unique experiences like foraging and wildlife safaris to their guests.


It's not every day you meet someone who turns adversities into opportunities, and that's precisely what Hari has done. Through the years, she's navigated numerous challenges—recessions, pandemics, and staffing issues—to continue offering top-quality service. But what keeps people coming back to Tudor Farmhouse isn’t just the luxury of the rooms, but the entirety of the experience they offer, which speaks volumes about their business acumen and hospitality ethos.


And as if managing a hotel with 30 staff wasn’t enough, Hari has ventured into another exciting industry. She's brewing up a storm in the non-alcoholic cocktail market. Whether it's creating memorable moments at the hotel or innovating with beverages, Hari believes in the importance of hard work, focus, and above all, creating your own luck. 


So, as you get comfortable, prepare for an episode that takes you through the elegantly designed corridors of Tudor Farmhouse Hotel, into the vibrant world of non-alcoholic cocktails, and provides unmatched insights into succeeding in the hospitality sector.
