Tretawdy Nature Reserve

About the project

This innovative stone barn conversion project has been developed for Hereford Wildlife Trust on a newly founded nature reserve in rural Herefordshire near the Monmouthshire borders. The project has been developed in order to generate sustainable long-term funding to ensure the development and survival of Tretawdy Nature Reserve and to fund conservation projects on the land.

The build has been designed as a hybrid development that can appeal to either the glamping market or to the more traditional holiday cottage market. The green roof and solar enhanced design set the project apart from any conventional barn conversions and ecological elements and solutions are built into the infrastructure underground as all of the surface and greywater generated will be filtered through a custom-designed wetland system.

The project was awarded RDPE funding and is Hereford Wildlife Trusts’ flagship hospitality development. Guests can come and experience the nature reserve first hand with the opportunity to be involved in constructive conservation work on the land.
