Guests often search for this popular amenity
A secluded retreat for Vegan & Vegetarian guests.
Owned by long term vegans, we try to be as earth-friendly and ecological as possible and being vegan is part of this philosophy of life.

The Studio offers a home from home environment for our guests who are wanting to truly relax and escape from the everyday stresses of life. We welcome your four legged friends too! We have extensive walks from our doorstep, where you can explore the beautiful River Wye, woodlands, local pub & village stores.

The space
Located in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the border of The Wye Valley & Forest Of Dean, The Studio is a self contained open plan building within our grounds. There is a separate bathroom & fully equipped kitchen. Guests can relax in the organic fields with wild orchids and abundant wildlife in pure peace and tranquility. An outside private dining space can be enjoyed with breathtaking views.

The Studio is nestled in the grounds of our home but we have enough space to allow for privacy, including a separate driveway, entrance and outdoor patio area. The Studio is not over looked.

We are here as much or as little as you need us, and pride ourselves on being warm and friendly. We are very proud of the feedback we have had so far, and we very much look forward to welcoming you if you are also looking to stay at The Studio.

Our two small dogs Tutu and Zizi are very friendly and we welcome your four legged friends too! There is a lovely walk around the grounds for you to enjoy & plenty of walks direct from the property to explore, including the ever popular Offas Dyke.

The Studio is a lovely open plan light space, with a separate kitchen and bathroom. We have used low VOC water-based paints in decorating throughout. The small tap in the kitchen delivers water filtered by reverse osmosis for drinking.

The bed linen and towels, which are all provided in your stay are organic cotton - many chemicals are used in normal cotton growing.

The underfloor heating is delivered by ground source – pipes under the field draw heat from the ground which is converted in the 'engine room.' The wind turbine in our field contributes to the electricity supply.

We only use ecological cleaning products and provide ecological vegan liquid soap and shampoo, which is important as we have a private drainage system which works with gravel, rushes and willow to filter, which cleans the water which then goes into the pond. Chemicals disturb the natural balance.

There are two metal dustbins (not plastic!) – one for general waste and one for recyclables: metal, glass, paper and plastics which please all need to be clean before being put in the bin.
There is a small compost bin on the kitchen windowsill for plant matter. Compost is then used on the gardens.

We provide our guests with organic coffee, tea and sugar.

For your convenience The Studio has a hair dryer and a portable steamer, should clothes need creases removed. Television, dvd player with a selection of dvds, books and local information.

The Brockweir and Hewelsfield village eco shop, cafe and conference room is community owned and staffed by volunteers. It specialises in local food and is a WiFi cafe. We have a local village pub within walking distance and many more options slightly further afield in Tintern, all of which serve vegan and vegetarian options.

The Old Station in Tintern, Award Winning tea room (twice voted best in Wales) and a Wales Tourism accolade winner 2017 this charming tea room is situated in the original railway waiting room.
.
The famous local monument is the Cistercian Abbey of Tintern - a fine romantic monastic ruin. It was only the second Cistercian monastery in Britain, and the first in Wales, founded in 1131 by Walter de Clare, lord of Chepstow.

Perfectly located for escaping life for a couple of days, ditching the car and not going far! Or, if you prefer to get out and explore we are close by to good road links and many popular villages, towns and tourist attractions. Many guests return time and time again as there is so much to do.
