Plant Based Retreat & Small Animal Sanctuary

Luxury self contained cabin accommodation, individual ensuite rooms in the main house and an optional large outdoor hot tub.

The Base has been created by vegan couple Jacqui & Fiaz who are very experienced hosts who also run a small animal sanctuary with chickens, rabbits and guinea pigs which roam free in the garden during the day.

All rooms are well finished with an espresso pod machine, smart TV and underfloor heating.  Exciting breakfast and evening meals are also available.


We are located in Hanham on the east edge of Bristol. Just 20 minutes’ drive to Bristol’s vibrant city centre, and 30 mins to the picturesque and historic city of Bath.

Located on the edge of Bristol towards Bath, Cock Road Ridge is on our doorstep and is ideal for taking The Dog out with hills, wooded areas and views. Perfect!

Staying at The Base feels like you’re in the countryside but we are under 5 minutes’ leafy stroll to the hidden Aspects Leisure Park with multi-screen cinema, restaurants, pub, 10 pin bowling, gym and swimming pool! Frankie & Benny’s have a separate vegan menu. A few minute’s further walk is Gallagher Retail Park with clothes shops, 24 hour supermarket, Subway, Cafe Nero and Costa Coffee.


The Cabin

With an elevated position, the decked terrace gives open views of the mature gardens and dramatic sunrises over the rolling Cotswolds beyond.

The entrance opens into a spacious studio area with a kingsize bed, ensuite bathroom and full kitchen complete with dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. Adjoining the studio room is the second bedroom, also with a kingsize bed. Perfect for summertime but also very cosy in the winter with underfloor heating throughout and a wood burner.

The kitchen in the cabin is fully equipped with glasses, crockery, pans and utensils and also a coffee capsule machine for fresh espresso coffee. Towels, hairdryer, iron and travel cot are also included as are other essentials like coffee pods, firewood and loo roll.

Rooms in the House

These are creatively refurbished double ensuites and are equally well appointed with underfloor heating, coffee capsule machine, fridge, iron and hairdryer etc.
