About Monnow Valley Studio

Monnow Valley Studio offers you and up to 25 of your family and closest friends the opportunity to share the same space as some of Britains' best-loved musicians. As well as providing fantastic self-catering for big groups near the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean, it has hosted the likes of Oasis, Ozzy Osborne, Tom Jones, and Stereophonics - all of whom have stayed here while rehearsing and recording albums in the legendary studio. Recently refurbished, the property sleeps up to 26 people in 11 beautiful bedrooms, seven of which are ensuite, and is 300 metres away from the lane with no passing traffic to disturb your peace. The setting is perfect for parties, including well-behaved hen and stag groups - boasting a soundproof party room, cinema room, and a hot tub.

There is plenty to do in the area around Monnow Valley Studio. To start with, it's beside the River Monnow with opportunities for fishing and wild swimming. Winding lanes lead to places like Grosmont Castle, and there are footpaths from the door through scenic countryside. The Brecon Beacons, Forest of Dean and Wye Valley are within a short drive, providing lots of opportunities for walking, mountain biking, fishing and kayaking. Add to the "famous" effect of your stay with a visit to Puzzlewood where the mystical ancient woodland has been used as a film set for Doctor Who, Star Wars, The Huntsman and other films and TV shows. There are golf courses nearby, including the Rolls of Monmouth Golf Club and Forest Hills Golf Club, and riding stables where you can arrange guided rides.

You can arrange for grocery delivery to Monnow Valley Studio but, if you want to pop out for milk and bread, Monmouth is just over two miles away with a good variety of amenities and options for eating out. The market town is the birthplace of Henry V and home to the medieval Monnow Bridge - the only bridge of its kind left in Britain. Local attractions include Clearwell Caves, Ancre Hill Vineyard, Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo and half-a-dozen castles in various states of repair. However, the property's space and facilities are so good that many guests are happy to sleep late and laze around the house and grounds, enjoying having time to spend with family and friends in this amazing setting.

The owners of Monnow Valley Studios live on the estate and are there to welcome guests and answer questions you have about the local area or the history of the venue. They can also help arrange onsite catering and beauty treatments to ensure you and your guests can enjoy the full rockstar experience.
