Rockfield history is literally studied with stars. Started in 1961 it rapidly became the world’s first-ever residential recording studio set-up so that bands could come and stay whilst recording, and all within the peaceful surroundings of beautiful Monmouthshire. The converted farmhouse rapidly became an oasis for major bands and as Rockfield’s reputation and facilities expanded so did its fine reputation – and literally its ‘number 1 hits’.

Over the years, recording artists as diverse as Coldplay to Elaine Paige, Nigel Kennedy to Annie Lennox, Paolo Nutini to Oasis and KT Tunstall to Queen, who recorded Bohemian Rhapsody here in 1973, have all recorded in the studios here at Rockfield


Rockfield has continued to provide excellent recording and accommodation facilities to artists who still come from far and wide, but it has also grown as a holiday venue and today is extremely popular as a self-catering location for larger groups.

The Coach House is reserved exclusively for holiday let accommodation while The Quadrangle is available at certain times. Situated just outside Monmouth town in the heart of the Wye Valley and in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural beauty it is surrounded by magnificent countryside.

As a border town, Monmouth is where Wales really begins with the hills around Abergavenny, Hay Bluff and the Brecon Beacons, along with the amazing Forest of Dean and all its activities… literally on your door step.
