Newstead On The James, a perfect spot for meditation and renewal, is a beautiful country estate central to much history, historic homes, civil war sites and Virginia wineries.
The beauty and peace of the Virginia countryside is wonderfully uplifting. Take time out for a spiritual retreat. Leave behind the problems of our busy materialistic world and gain greater personal fulfillment.
A weekend at Newstead provides an opportunity to think more deeply about what is going on in our inner lives and may help you find the deeper meaning of life.
A total of three bedrooms with queen sized beds are available.
Afternoon tea and scones are available in the sitting room overlooking the South lawn by special request.
The James River is nearby for boating, tubing and swimming.
At night the Milky Way spills over the country sky.
Walk down the country lane and out into the field to visit the resident flock of sheep and their guardian dog, Simone.
Carriage rides available by special arrangement.
