Charlotte Church has revealed she plans to have rooms at ‘different price points’ in her Welsh wellness retreat so a variety of customers can ‘access it.’
The singer-songwriter has transformed a £1.5million derelict mansion into a nature-orientated business venture called The Dreaming.
The property based in Rhydoldog, which was previously owned by designer Laura Ashley, is set in 49 acres of grounds and features themed guest suites.
They include a sumptuous Mystic room, filled with embellished saris from India, a Japanese-influenced bedroom called the Forest Spirits and the Womb room.
Honouring the various stages of womanhood, the Womb room is painted in ‘fleshy’ colours and has a pink shower that could be likened to a vagina.
Speaking on This Morning, self-professed ‘ecowarrior’ Charlotte revealed her hopes to make the retreat open to people from all backgrounds as she plans to develop ‘pay what you can’ and ‘pay it forward; schemes.

She added: ‘One thing that was really important to me was to make it as accessible as I could.
‘There will be a pay-what-you-can space on all the retreats that we do.’
She went on: ‘I really want to set up a pay it forward scheme, I really want to work with different charitable partners, so over this next six months to a year I’m really going to see what our options are to make this as accessible as possible and as useful as possible.’

Charlotte recently announced via her Instagram that the seven-bedroom property turned healing retreat is now available for bookings.
The renovation process is also being followed on TV show Charlotte Church’s Dream Build, which airs on Really.

Charlotte bought the property two years ago and has been engaged in the renovation project ever since, with the first series of the show airing last year and the second series having started on Wednesday evening.
The DJ, who has previously performed for the Queen and former US president Bill Clinton, revealed that she will be a ‘practitioner’ at the retreat, and plans to do ‘chanting and singing to the land’ as part of the experience.
She added that the impact of the pandemic and other growing pressures on everyday people spurred her on to create a place where people are able to escape their busy lives and unwind.
‘In part, it’s about connection to nature,’ she explained.
‘In our busy lives we don’t have time, people are so distracted by everything, our nervous systems are getting burnt out, our mental health isn’t coping very well.’
Church also said the retreat will be ‘gentle and self-guided,’ meaning guests ‘can access it at any level.’
This Morning airs every weekday at 10am on ITV, while Charlotte Church’s Dream Build is available to stream on Discovery Plus.
