    Find the unruffled hamlet of Frithsden, near Berkhamsted and you'll find the award-winning Alford Arms. This pubby gem nestling in its secluded wooded valley has the great Ashridge forest on its doorstep and the broad sweep of the Chiltern Hills as its backdrop. Inside, rich fabrics and antique artwork set the mood. Wooden tables and chairs gleaned from nearby auctions add the tone and an open fire stands ready.
