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. Our yurt was fab and spacious enough for me my husband and cnildren age 14, 7, 5 and 2. The vintage units, sheep skins... More

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...

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.

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
