Booked at short notice looking for somewhere that put me close to nature and away from the rest of the world. It also needed to be wheelchair accessible. (I do have a robust off road wheelchair). The 20 foot yurt at eco-retreats was perfect. The bed was not only comfortable but beautiful as well. We had everything we needed; woodburning... More

We've had several Topi holidays over recent years . This one was the best. The quality of the Tipi was great. All the necessary kit . Comfortable bed. Good size. Smoke nicely leaves . Great views from the site. The Owners leave you to yourselves ,rather than any fuss. Everything you need is there. Amazing selection of walks all around... More

My partner and I booked to go to the meadow yurt for 2 nights as a surprise for my best friend - there were 4 adults in there, but we had plenty of space and were completely comfortable. It was amazing not having phone signal or anything nearby, time really seemed to slip away whilst pottering, eating outside by the... More

We have just returned from a fab weekend in the Meadow Yurt. 4 adults and 3 young girls. We all had a great time, despite the torrential rain at times. No electricity or Wi-Fi meant that it was a really relaxing place to stay. The yurt was very spacious and well-equipped with everything that we needed for the weekend and... More

The trip for us was a tonic. Time disappeared as there was no need to know what the time was! We spent the visit sitting, eating round the camp fire. Walking up the river with nets to explore and playing games until dark! We slept so well on the wonderful mattress in the tipi and we were warm as toast... More

Wow an experience and place we won't forget in a hurry and I am sure we will return to one day for another visit. The location is beautiful although very hilly and I'm glad we had a car to transport our things to the tipi! Booked a yurt and a tipi for myself, husband, brother and sister in law. Everyone's...

Just back from a weekend in the mountain tipi with my 3 daughters. The tipi was very spacious and had everything we needed laid on. The lack of electricity and wifi added to the relaxing experience. We sat around the log fire chatted, played games and had a wonderful time just bonding. Woodland walks nearby are varied, steep and scary... More

Hello. Thanks very much for your review and your comment about the chairs. We’re just making some wooden benches for outside each tipi/yurt so hopefully this will sort out the seating for when there are more than just two in a tipi. I hope you can come back some time. More

We had the pleasure of staying in the Meadow Yurt last weekend of June. We stayed with my four children and my parents stayed in a Tipi on another field. We would thoroughly recommend Eco Retreats.

Thanks very much for your review. I’m glad you felt the Meadow was the best location - that’s certainly the case for if you want to play ‘Meadow games’ but it often seems that return guests feel that ‘their’ tipi or yurt was in the best spot and they want to go back to the same one! I hope you... More

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...
