The Lodge nestled on a hillside


Peaceful location for a break


A sunny spot for you awaits


Stunning views from the hot tub


We offer naturist stays in a beautiful location exclusively for couples. The location here is a total retreat from the city. The cabin (Studio Cabin) has a backdrop of woodland, a view of hills and mountains for miles and miles and terraced lawns to catch the sun on.

Naturist stay

Our place is clothes-free whenever weather makes it comfortable. It is a place for couples comfortable in a naturist setting but couples new to nude holidays are welcome. You'll be fine if you're happy with nudity in a mixed gender setting.

The location

We on the edge of The Forest of Dean and in the Wye Valley. The Welsh border is a short walk from us.

This is a great location for taking in this beautiful part of the country. It is an AONB - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The historic market town of Monmouth isn't far away, so shops and restaurants are within easy reach. This is a quiet location. We call our place "Oak Lodge."

Place and facilities

Our guest accommodation is at the highest point of our garden. It is a log cabin designed especially for holiday guests.

The garden is large and on a series of levels or terraces. It is located on a hillside facing south-west. It's an ideal sunbathing spot for an all-over tan. The top garden is surrounded by woodland. It's our sunny glade. In the central area is a decking area and delightful lawn. The liberty lawn.

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

Note: our hillside location makes it unsuitable for people who find climbing steps/stairs difficult. There are two flights of steps to climb to our front door from the front gate and three flights behind the house to the Studio Cabin.


Please check our Availability Calendar. The Availability Calendar is at the bottom of the Studio Cabin page.

Book in advance

We only take advance bookings and we can't take last moment bookings. This means we need a day or so notice before your arrival. If you need more information, you can contact us via on our Contact page.

Check in and departure

Check in - you can arrive at any time from 3pm on weekdays, 3.30pm on Saturdays. On the day of departure 11am is the normal check out time but this can be varied if our circumstances allow it. We are also sometimes on weekdays able to offer an earlier check in so a request will be considered.

Sorry, we aren't able to do Sunday arrivals.


Accommodation is self-catering.

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.

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.


Parking is very limited. We have just one space for visitors directly in front of the house. The space directly in front of the house is not suitable for commercial vehicles and large vans, if you've got a vehicle like that you'll need to park in the place lower down the lane. It is possible to park by the gates of the small water storage facility.


This is a no smoking location.

We are not able to accept pets.


In order to allow for good administration of our stays, all stays must be booked using the Booking Form. Stay bookings can't be accepted in any other way and no stay is reserved/secured 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. By "comfortable in a naturist setting" we mean, having no problem about being without clothes in the company of others of both sexes who are likewise going without clothes.
