We had a wonderful few days at Eco Retreats In June and it is an experience we wont forget anytime soon ...The location itself is absolutely stunning and it is so remote and deep in the Welsh mountains that for the whole duration of our 3 day stay (after being shown around the tipi) we did not see a single...

We stayed in a tipi here last year and couldn't wait to go back this year for a longer stay. The peace and quiet, fresh air and natural habitat along with no phone signal, wifi or electricity made for a totally relaxing time. Will definitely be back next year again.

We stayed some time ago now when it was my husband's 40th with our little girls. We had such a fun weekend and will return. The girls had such freedom and loved playing in the little stream. We all slept like logs at night and felt such peace.L9g fires and star gazing. What is not to love? Amazing how relaxed... More

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...
