Glamping, Retreats & Workshops in the heart of the Wye Valley

Hope Farm Retreats is nestled on our 13 acre family-farm, offering farm-based holiday accommodation, glamping, rural skills and craft workshops. We run workshops and fun family activities all year round based on natural themes.


Our farm is home to an array of animals – chickens, miniature ponies, a very shy farm cat ‘Hannah’, our puppy Tiffin and some very naughty sheep. We welcome our visitors to help with feeding, collecting eggs, grooming and finding out about looking after the animals.

It is also the site of our sister business – floristry and flower farm, Wye Valley Flowers.

Our Story

We are Jo, Mark and daughter Izzy – a three generation family, based on a small 13-acre farm, between the Wye and Forest of Dean. We bought the adjoining land to our farmhouse two years ago, to reunite the farmhouse and create a sustainable, diversified farm to host our range of rural themed and craft activities.

Flower Farm-based Glamping

Stay close to nature in a stylish Lotus Belle Tent for up to 4 people, or cosy-up and retreat to our converted Potting Shed ‘nook’ for a couple.

Our two stylish Lotus Belle tents are aptly called Cornflower and Chamomile, to reflect the wildflower meadow they are situated in and the stroll through our Flower Farm to reach them.

Rural Skills & Craft Workshops

We are very excited to launch from Spring 2021 our rural skills and craft workshops.

We will be running workshops and family activities all year round based on natural themes, some co-hosted with local experts including gin foraging and soap making, to mini beasts and muddy tots.
