Looking for a party house like no other?  Tan House Newland is an extraordinary and exquisitely elegant 17th century Mediterranean villa, with the wildest sense of fun.

Set in 20 acres of lush, private grounds on the Newland Valley Estate in the Royal Forest of Dean, you’re in for a spellbinding stay. Boasting eight bedrooms and sleeping up to 20+, it’s a fabulous destination to celebrate weddings, milestone events, hen dos or family gatherings. Take your pick from three separate luxury properties and add on five luxury pop-up Taj bell tents in the summer, should you want to spread out.

Stay in one of the five bedrooms in the main house’s Garden Wing, with its own dining kitchen, private courtyard garden, wood-fired hot tub, fire pit, pizza oven and BBQ. Offering enchanting, mini-Downton Abbey vibes, soak up the stunning formal gardens with their long lawns, fountain, ponds and elegant topiary. Or, plump for Hillside Retreat and the Showman Wagon, a short walk away, with hot tubs and Kamado egg barbecues.  Thoughtful touches throughout include fluffy slippers, fresh bathrobes, big luxurious towels and the softest of bed linens.

Dine and dance the night away in the magical Tipi with its fabulous and whimsical decor (we’re taking boho-chic tables, fairy lights and life size zebras!) or celebrate in the stone-built barn, the dreamiest of  backdrops for your special gathering.

It’s always a bespoke experience at Tan House Newland too, husband and wife owners Tanya and François are on hand to turn your every whim into a reality. The talented pair are experts in creating exclusive immersive events, with 30 years experience curating stunning backdrops for film, fashion and TV. Situated on the edge of the village of Newland, in the Wye Valley, there’s parking galore and it’s super accessible too, with the nearest mainline train station in Lydney, 15 minutes away.
