Welcome to Orchard Cottage

A luxurious retreat situated in the stunning Wye Valley

Orchard Cottage provides the perfect countryside escape for two near the historic Welsh town of Chepstow; with traditional interiors and a cosy wood-burner. Dogs are welcome too in this conveniently located rural idyll.

Start your journey along Offa's Dyke, walk from the door to a good local pub, canoe down the river Wye, or cycle through the wonderful Forest of Dean. Whether for an active holiday in stunning surroundings or a restful weekend by the fire, Orchard Cottage is the ideal bolt-hole.

Anne's Retreat

Complete seclusion and unparalleled luxury in a charming shepherd's hut

Anne’s Retreat is truly unique, taking glamping to a whole new level. Built by the owner, the supremely comfortabe and spacious sleeping and living hut is attached via a wooden deck to the very well-appointed 'bathing hut'.

Anne's Retreat is set in a totally secluded, stunning location within its own meadow, nestled quietly on the edge of a natural wood. Whether for a romantic getaway or a long weekend of walking through the woods of the surrounding valley, Anne's Retreat provides the perfect escape. Engage in a plethora of local activities or simply throw a log on the fire pit, lie back in the hammock and enjoy the peace, the quiet and the birdsong.

Anne's Retreat

Staying here and exploring this pocket of Monmouthshire has made us both very happy. The autumnal colours blaze across the valleys surrounding the meandering rivers, Wye, Monnow and Severn. The silence is audible and the air fresh. A day's hike to Tintern proved restorative and energising. 

Euan, thank you for being so welcoming and ensuring that the hut is perfectly equipped and stocked. We enjoyed the circular walk you recommended from the hut which took us to the top of the hill to see severn counties. We also enjoyed the Royal George in Tintern, that ale is delishious! We also enjoyed our afternoon in Monmouth.  Isn't Britain beautiful. We will be back.

Our 3 night stay at Anne's Retreat was the magical. Starting with Euan's friendly and wholeheartedly kind welcome (even when we arrived much later than planned!) to the gorgeous interior and generous welcome hamper. Euan even brought us some lovely local sausages back as he was popping out to the shop. 

Bring marshmallows and sit by the fire pit and listen to the leaves falling off the trees, bring bubble bath and sit looking out into the woods.... my first bath with birdsong for company.

A little gem hidden in the Welsh Countryside.

Many thanks for a relaxing break

What a perfect antidote to busy city life! The huts provided everything I needed for a relaxing stay. Warm cosy indoor and outdoor fires, fluffy robes, towels and hot water and the lovely hamper of treats. I cannot wait to return and share this with my husband next time!

Euan and Laura, thank you for sharing your beautiful slice of paradise with me. I look forward to next time. 

Warmest regards

This wonderful stay began with Euan's warm, friendly welcome. Anne's Retreat is simply beautiful and has everything I needed to make myself comfy and cozy. I've enjoyed many a doze in the hammock, taken advantage of the walks on the doorstep affording stunning views of the Severn, take in the stars by the roasty fire pit and of course enjoyed several long lie in's 

This was just the perfect peaceful, solitary spot I needed to rest and recharge

11 to 15 September 2018

Ryan and myself have had the most wonderful and relaxing honeymoon. Euan was a pleasure: telling us about "must see" places, the best pubs, butchers and shops etc.

Anne's Retreat was exactly what we needed, we don't want to leave!

Advice for fellow guests: Marshmallows, lots of casserole ingredients, good books, walking shoes and never leave the hut!! Because it is SO perfect.

Thank you for having us Ryan and Hannah

Anne's Retreat

25-28 August 2018

We enjoyed a fantastic and secluded three nights at Anne’s Retreat. The seclusion is the number one thing about this place! The hut itself is beautiful and finished to the highest standard. It was clearly made with love by the owner and host Euan (who lives nearby to welcome and help with anything). It is a really fun place and host Euan, was quick to show us the log burner inside and the fire pit outside which we enjoyed keeping stocked each evening. The separate bathroom hut is beautifully finished including an external light which when turned on at night, means you can sit in the bath and and look out over the secluded woodland. Also, it rained all day on one of our days (so take Monopoly, just in case!) which is great fun from inside the warm hut (if you like the rain, like us!). Obviously the bathroom hut is separate so you will get fractionally wet popping to the loo! For us this absolutely added to the quintessential charm of the place.
 
There are endless walks from and around Anne’s Hut (maps provided - although I would really just ask Euan as he knows the best spots and is more than willing to help!). Tintern, a lovely little village on the river, is 10 minutes away with plenty of places to eat and Tintern Abbey is stunning. 
 
My advice is to go food shopping before you arrive and stay on site, away from the rest of the world, for as long as possible! The 4G connection, if you want it, is pretty good too.
 
Euan really went above and beyond, going as far as to chop wood for us each day and help build our fire pit each evening. He really couldn’t have been more helpful.

"Dear Laura & Euan

What a complete dream to find Anne’s Retreat and you both. The perfect spot to escape the rabble.

Complete perfection in every way.

Thank you and hope to return very soon

All the very best, Olivia"

Having seen a Shepherds Hut on TV, we wondered what it would be like to stay in one. We were not disappointed! Quirky but with all the mod cons! Very comfy bed and great shower!

The location is idillic, such wonderful peace and quiet. The dogs who greeted us every time we came back were a bonus

Anne's Retreat

6 - 8 July 2018

 Anne's Retreat was the most perfect antidote to busy London, tucked away in the beautifully rural Wye Valley, but with every possible luxury one might find in a 5* hotel including an extremely comfortable superking bed, soft dressing gowns, toiletries and a bath that looked out into the dappled woodland sunlight outside. 

Laura and Euan could not have been more warm and welcoming hosts, thinking of everything from bundles of kindling for the little woodburner inside, to treats for our breakfast which we enjoyed sitting outside on our private decking. They were a fountain of knowledge for the local area, resulting in some of the best walking we've ever done around historic Penterry. I only wished we could have stayed longer- a truly romantic getaway that trumps any 'glamping' experience. Our return couldn't come any sooner!

A wonderful cottage and location. I wanted a few days of peace and quiet and Orchard Cottage is the perfect place.

Thank you to Laura and Euan for making me feel like a house guest, to Badger and Bronte for regularly dropping in and to the delinquent lambs for making me laugh!

I will be back …. Carol, Pyrford, Surrey

24th – 29th May

Our second visit to Orchard Cottage was just as lovely as our first last year – and the woods and the fields were at their best with the last of the bluebells and full of wild flowers.

We had some super walks – to Tintern through the woods, and in the Forest of Dean visiting some of the pretty villages there. We were lucky enough to enjoy the flower festival at Penterry Church, complete with musicians and cream tea.

We re-visited The Whitebrook which is a real treat.  But mostly we enjoyed the peace, the surrounding walks and the wonderful views. Orchard Cottage is extremely comfortable, has everything needed, and is in the most perfect setting. WE feel very refreshed after a lovely relaxing break.  Barbara and Trevor

We have been coming to this delightful cottage since early 2007. Every time the visit has been faultless, mostly due to the care and attention of Laura and Euan.

Many thanks. Julie, Tony and Toby

  PS We LOVE the 5* shepherds hut!
