Firstly - the setting is absolutely beautiful, and clearly a lot of love has gone into the creation and upkeep. Michael was extremely friendly and welcoming and I cannot fault his passion and commitment to eco retreats. I have put off writing a review because i really feel our experience was down to personal preference and I am sure many... More

I bought a package on Virgin Experiences to take my partner away for a weekend with no worries on our minds - this package included reiki, meditation session and a welcome hamper. Our welcome hamper was forgotten about which is why I have given this review 4 stars - because there was no signal in such a remote location we... More

At 66 years of age we were looking for something completely different to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, and found it with our two night stay in the waterfall Tipi. We were both surprised at how easy it was to forget the rest of the world and enjoy the simple way of life there. The location was both peaceful and... More

Never have I felt so relaxed in all of my life. Everything was so perfect. I would love to re-do the whole weekend, we both really didn't want to come home! Even if it isn't something you normally do, I definitely recommend it. You won't regret it!

We had the perfect weekend at Eco Retreats, the team couldn't have done more to make sure we had everything we needed. Lots of support to find the location even though we arrived late in the day. The meadow was just perfect and very peaceful.

My partner took me to the Forrest tipi as a surprise. We were only meant to be staying 2 nights but after loving night 1 so much and not wanting it to end we requested a 3rd night which they said was no problem. The tipi was well thought out Everything you could possibly need for your stay is provided.... More

We went there for our wedding anniversary and stayed in Cwm Onnen Tipi. Everything is very well thought out. Bedding is comfortable and plenty of extra blankets should you need them. The most amazing view of the valley and the forest. We went for a walk that Michael recommended. Spectacular views, so peaceful, not a soul in sight apart from... More

We got bought this as a wedding present and we were really excited about visiting. Unfortunately this was the first week of the season and I don't think they were fully prepared for us when we arrived. It is not luxury. The bedsheets were damp and the rugs filthy. The outside bath did not work. The water filter did not... More

I’m so sorry that your experience with us wasn’t as beautiful as we would hope it to be. As you mention, this was our opening week just before Easter and I recognise that we took our eye off the ball with attention to detail. I remember greeting you and following a very busy period of putting up and furnishing tipis... More

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
