I first came across Hill House in February 2012, when it was the Heartspring retreat centre. I was looking for a place to be in sort of retreat with my daughter, as in an un’guided’ retreat, somewhere calm and beautiful and close to nature, not too isolated, offering company if sought and privacy for reflection when needed. An internet search... More

Hill House has changed ownership recently. We visited before when it had a different name and although we enjoyed it then, we're pleased to report that there have been visible improvements. There's a great new room suite, the atmosphere is, if anything, even more relaxed, and there's a definite sense that the building is enjoying some much-needed TLC while retaining... More

It was our first time visiting Llansteffan - it's quite an easy drive from Berkshire (pretty much just straight up the M4). We arrived at night so we had no idea of the views afforded during daylight. But upon waking up, though, a sun-aided picturesque view of the church tower, castle ruins and the beach/estuary instantly made that 3-hour journey... More

Very sadly this did not live up to my expectations. Having been regularly over 9 years, I know that the village and also the house are special places, Llansteffan castle is a wonderful, peaceful place, the beach as close to nature as possible, but sadly the people now running Hill House are not as sensitive, welcoming, or helpful as the...

We are sad that you were disappointed, but perhaps the new low key soft sell approach is not what you expected. I believe you attended group therapies before, with prebooked therapies, and perhaps that would have suited you better? Bel did mention to you that they gave therapies, as shown on the website, but was not pushy about it. You... More

HILL HOUSE REVISITED As the new website points out, Hill House in Llansteffan, Wales UK is not a hardcore holistic institution for new age soul-searchers. Much better, it’s a unique Victorian guesthouse that offers fundamental circumstances, ideally suited for a contemporary *retreat. A perfect refuge for free spirits, the ones that prefer an individual approach, during their introspective journey. Having... More

We just spent a few days at Hill House and it is a truly stunning location! The house is very quiet and peaceful and Bel and Robert were extremely welcoming. It provides clean, basic accommodation in a beautiful setting within easy walking distance of the best beach I've seen in Britain and the local pub, the Castle Inn offers excellent... More

Just spent a few very enjoyable and relaxing days at Hill House retreat in the quiet, picturesque village of Llansteffan. Loved the quirky house, which is full of character and has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The large guestrooms are filled with light from huge windows with stunning views over the estuary and castle and the high ceilings, wooden floors... More
