Naturist stay

You will need to be comfortable about being in a naturist setting if you are coming to stay. At the same time, though, we welcome those who are new to naturist holidays.

Stays with us are either on a homestay/B&B basis in the guest room in the main house or on a self-catering basis in our studio cabin at the top of the garden. You will find details about each of these by selecting the appropriate page from the main menu.

This is a clothes free location whenever comfortable. The hot tub is the only place where nothing is ever worn. For the rest, it's according to the temperature and weather conditions.

Our location

Our accommodation is called Oak Lodge. We are near Monmouth on the edge of The Forest of Dean. Oak Lodge is within the Wye Valley area of outstanding natural beauty.

The lodge is located on a South West facing hillside. This is a quiet location. It normally only has the occasional car going past the property. It has a large garden on a series of terraces some grassed and some with patios, all of which soak up the sun once it rises on it from mid morning onwards. It's a beautiful location and our hospitality is warm.

The view from our hot tub is stunning! While soaking in the hot tub you can enjoy the views of Monmouth, the Wye Valley and in the distance Sugar Loaf mountain and the hills of the South Wales.

Our hillside location means we are not suitable for people who have difficulty walking and climbing steps/stairs. There are two flights of steps to climb to our front door from the front gate.

All year round

In this location, Autumn and Winter do almost as well as Summer and Spring as great times to have a naturist break with us. The hot tub is always ready for use whatever the season and a roaring log fire lit inside during the colder months.

Never mind the weather! It's always warm and cosy inside and you can enjoy the view. Outside you can enjoy the hot tub in almost any weather. But if you are wondering about the weather follow this link to get the current weather and the forecast for the next few days: Our Local Weather.

Book in advance

We only take advance bookings, not last minute bookings. This means we need a day or so notice before the planned arrival date for your booking. Please also read the section below "Days and times". If you need more information, you can contact us via on our Contact page.

Days and times

We accept bookings to stay for a single night or a short break on most days and at most times of the year. Please see the Availability Calendar for dates that are currently available.

You can arrive at any time from 3 pm. Dinner, if you decide to eat with us, is usually at 6.30 pm but by arrangement it can be later. The hot tub can be enjoyed at all times of the day and evening. On the day of departure 11 am is the normal check out time but this can be varied if circumstances allow.


Breakfast is included for those staying on a homestay basis in the main house. Dinner in the evening is available for all on request and having lunch is also possible. See our Prices page for details.

Local attractions

You are welcome to stay around the lodge and simply relax. However, if you'd like to get out and see the sights there are many possibilities.

If you enjoy biking by all means bring your bikes. You'll be able to keep them in our garage. This is a great location for cycling along the Wye Valley trail to Symonds Yat. If you enjoy walking there are many public footpaths leading into The Forest of Dean or leading you onto the walks of the Wye Valley.

Our location is perfect for exploring the Wye Valley from Synmonds Yat all the way down to Tintern Abbey. Equally easily, you can go off into the Forest of Dean with its trails, view points, lakes - for example, Cannop Ponds and Mallards Pike Lake - and places of interest like Clearwell Caves and Puzzlewood.


There is no smoking in the main house or the studio cabin.

We are not able to accept pets.

This is a straightforward naturist stay with no added dimension to it.


All stays and visits must be booked using the Booking Form and, following this, a deposit has to be made using the Payment Button under the Booking Form. No stays or visits are accepted unless these conditions are fulfilled and no stay or visit is reserved until a deposit has been received.

Conditions of stay

Stays at Oak Lodge (The Forest Spa) are only for couples who are comfortable in a naturist setting. This condition must be agreeable for both members of the couple intending to stay. Check with your partner. By "comfortable in a naturist setting" we mean, having no problem about being without clothes in the company of others who are likewise going without clothes.
