14. Blackberry Farm, Tennessee, USA
Ranked #14 in our countdown of the 100 Best Hotels and Resorts in the World.
Blackberry Farm is all back-to-nature bliss, 4200 acres of verdant rolling hills with matchless views of the fog-draped Smoky Mountains.
Fresh air fiends can go white-water rafting, mountain biking, trail riding or fly fishing but it’s the farming, foraging and ‘Foothills Cuisine’ that make this a serious foodie heaven.
Meals are served in an 18th-century Amish red barn and it’s all paddock-to-plate goodness (heirloom veggies, wild flower honey, crafted cheeses – a team of artisans make, bake and brew on site).
Culinary classes, wine and beer tasting also happen here. The rooms are divinely comfortable and properly posh.
Size 58 rooms
Did you know The farm has around 180,000 bottles in the wine cellar and its own boutique brewery with three signature beers.
