I loved my stay at Eco Retreats. It is fairly remote and wonderfully quiet. Just the place to unwind! The accommodation itself is a glamping experience like no other; offering an unexpected mix of real comfort and wilderness adventure. The tipis and yurts are scattered sparsely around the 50 acre site, placed to ensure no risk of disturbing a neighbour... More

I visited Eco Retreats in August this year. I came alone and spent 2 nights in the Easy Tipi. A beautiful setting and stunning views. I was a little apprehensive about going alone as this was the first time I had done anything like that. When I arrived, Wendy was very welcoming and made sure I had everything I needed.... More

We were truly impressed with everything about our camping experience at Eco Retreat. We stayed in the Forest Tipi set up the hill surrounded by the most beautiful countryside. The tipi's and yurts are well spaced apart so you really feel that you have the space to yourselves. The Tipi was spotless when we arrived with everything we needed ,... More

My friend and I stayed in the yurt last weekend and had an absolutely wonderful time. The setting is stunning, in the middle of a forest with a fresh stream which we braved for a morning dip! The yurt itself is beautiful, has everything you need including a log burner and sheep skin rugs for luxury lounging around. A few... More

Our first glamping trip! DH wasn't too sure, the children had never done anything like it, so it was quite a wild card for us. We had typical British summer weather of sunny spells and showers, in quick succession, which shaped our stay at Eco Retreats, in carpe diem/this too shall pass kind of way. Even with the rain we...

I simply cannot rate this holiday experience highly enough. We had the most wonderful, relaxing yet energising break away from the stresses of normal life. The simplest, natural things really are the best things in life and Eco Retreats allows you to embrace these whole heartedly. We took plenty of food and drink, cards and books but the weather was...

Whether you're visiting attractions in the region, exploring the area on foot or just looking for somewhere relaxing for a few days, Eco-retreats is about as peaceful as you could imagine. We stayed in the 'mountain' tipi, which is a short but steep walk from the parking area, and completely isolated from the rest of the tipis. Sensible shoes or... More

This was our first time staying in a tipi and we're already planning our next visit. We stayed in the remote forest tipi which, although quite a hike to get to originally, was actually blissfully peaceful and undisturbed - apart from the odd sheep and lots of owls. Despite pretty awful weather we were lovely and cosy and dry. Our... More

This was our first foray into 'Glamping' and I think we have been spoiled from the offset. Following the directions, you are a good four miles away from the nearest main road, all done a forestry commission track - you end up in the most stunning piece of Welsh countryside. We stayed in the Easy Tipi, which was just 100... More
