Kingstone Brewery is a real hive of activity that comes with all the hustle and bustle you’d expect of a working micro-brewery. You'll usually find Ed giving tours and talking malts with guests or prepping pizza dough for the wood-fired oven. But fear not! Hop Cabin sits in a quiet and secluded patch at the bottom of the land, so you really get the best of both worlds.
Inside the cabin there's a comfy double bedroom, a living room, kitchen and an ensuite bathroom with a big bath and plenty of hot water, so you could well just lounge around the woodburner all day and only venture out to stock up on bottles of treacle-coloured ale at the brewery shop. But you might be tempted to hop out again for a tour of the brewery itself, or for an evening of a pasta or bread making – perfect fuel for a canoe trip down the River Wye!
**The on-site bar hosts a monthly wood-fired pizza night. If you're looking for a lively evening of pizza-eating with other campers, call to find out dates**
**Brambling Cross, a cabin at the very top of the land sleeping two, will be the only other occupied space during your stay but there may be visitors to the brewery and pizza nights**

At Kingstone Brewery
There are plenty of options at the brewery itself: there's a bar on site where they do a great range of beer which you can pair with a Ploughman's lunch served in summer.
Please note this isn't always open so please liaise with Ed after booking.
There are pizza evenings on the first Saturday of every month and there's also the farm shop with cheeses, chutneys and other local bits and pieces.
If you give her some advance notice, Tori can also arrange some supplies ready for when you arrive.

If Ed and Tori are around, it's usually possible to tour the brewery and talk/taste malts with Ed (closed Thursday and Sunday). If you did want to spend more time getting involved in the brewing process then we also offer 1 hour, half and full day courses which cost £25.00, £50.00 - £100.00. You will learn all about the brewing process as well as home cooked food. Finally, you will return home with some beers to enjoy!
A little further afield...
A visit to Tintern Abbey is really amazing and once you are on the inside you will be surprised by its size. It is a wonderfully majestic site.
Tintern is also a lovely village to walk around with unusual and fascinating little shops! Tori's favourite is Stella Books as they have over 30,000 rare or out of print books - you will be bound to find a memorable story there!
For the adventure seeker: there is mountain biking, tree top zip wires, kayaking and wild river swimming! If any of these interest you then Ed & Tori will be happy to let you know all about them.
Clearwell Caves - 4500 Years of mining history in an amazing cave system.
Puzzlewood - magical woodland in the Forest of Dean.
Dean Steam Railway - Dean Forest railway.
A day out at Go Ape! Forest of Dean, 11 miles away, is always recommended for Tarzan swings and epic zip wires.
Ask Ed & Tori for more information on the local area.
~We had an amazing time at Kingstone Brewery this summer. Probably drank too much of their beer but it was too good not to!!! The accommodation was great, simple and rustic ... What you'd expect for glamping... The area is stunning, the hosts just want to make sure you are happy. We did a bread making course with Tori and loved our supper, Ed gave us a tour and tasting through all his ales( which he obviously likes :) ) loved the space.... So relaxing and naturally stunning.
