A slice of vintage heaven - a lovely Georgian house which has been lovingly restored by Jan Knibbs, an award winning embroidery and bridal designer with her husband Jonathan in a romantic, shabby chic style. Located in a village near Symonds Yat within the picturesque Wye Valley, Cedars House is the perfect place for a vintage hen week-end or any all female party.
Activities include vintage tea parties with the opportunity to dress up in Jan's extensive collection of vintage clothes, make-overs, boudoir photo shoots and more. Also on offer are many craft workshops including embroidery, quilting, corsage and garter making or life drawing with Jan herself and other options such as photography, jewellery making and flower arranging with other specialists. We also offer many beauty and pamper treatments with a local beauty therapist or pamper hampers for you and your guests to sample.
Set in lovely countryside, the area is perfect for walking, cycling and canoeing and the village itself has good local amenities including a village shop/delicatessan and quaint pubs and restaurants. Many local tourist attractions including a maze, crazy golf, butterfly house, laser tag assault course and river cruises are all within walking distance.
Close to Ross, Monmouth and the Forest of Dean with a good selection of interesting shops, restaurants and activities including a steam railway, a high-wire go-ape adventure course, renowned golf courses, horse riding and quad biking for the more adventurous.
Cedars House has had a very interesting history from it's early days as part of an asylum, a private boys school to a gay friendly guest house and it has also hosted many memorable themed parties and murder mysteries. If you wish, these can also be arranged for your enjoyment so just contact us for any ideas, themes or requirements you may have. We are here to make sure you and your guests have an amazing time.
