“Perfect romantic rural escape in every way”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Booked 3 nights in the Oak Yurt as a surprise weekend getaway for my girlfriend and I and from the moment of booking to the day we left we couldn't have been happier with the service we received! Tracey and Terry did everything they could to make sure our stay was memorable and perfect. From recommending days out and places to eat to making sure we had plenty of wood for our log burner in the Yurt. All this without ever being intrusive. The Yurt itself was beautifully presented inside and out and perched wonderfully on the hillside looking down in to a stunning Welsh valley. The private decking and furniture were a nice touch to sit outside in the evening watching the sun go down with a glass of wine and the fire crackling away below in our own fire pit. The Yurt was clean and well furnished with a 4 poster bed and fluffy duvet and was plenty warm with the log burner even when the temperature dropped to 4-5 degrees.
The facilities on site were also top quality! Being able to come back after a 12 mile hike in the nearby mountains, have a warm shower in our private bathroom, cook a steak in a fully equipped kitchen, jump in a luxury hot tub with a bottle of prosecco to soothe the aches and pains and finish off in the sauna was a feeling second to none.
All in all a perfect weekend with some lovely hosts. Could not recommend highly enough.

“Perfect weekend in luxury!”
Reviewed October 26, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have just returned from a fantastic weekend staying at The Secret Yurts. It was more than we hoped for! We were greeted by a warm welcome from Tracey who showed us round when we arrived, we were amazed at the spotless/ luxurious facilities! From the hot tub, to our own wet room, the fully equipped kitchen, sauna and the gorgeous Oak Yurt! Every detail to making it a special, romantic weekend had been thought of, the lit log burner, candles, fluffy robes and blankets, we settled in for a relaxing weekend, we didn't want for anything! Waking up to the fire still crackling away and only the sound of wildlife it really doesn't get any better than this. Would recommend to anyone in search of a relaxing, outdoorsy weekend with a luxurious twist, this is glamping to the highest degree.

“Total Relaxation”
Reviewed September 5, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

From start to finish, we just had the most relaxing time. Tracey and Terry were so lovely and welcoming. They gave us great trip ideas which all turned out to be fantastic. The yurt itself was gorgeous, romantic and extremely clean. It was really cosy and we loved the log burner in the room as this gave the yurt a really relaxing feel as we settled in for the night. The facilities were perfect for us as we wanted an outdoorsy break but also wanted luxury. We had massive (private) bathroom facilities which were spotless and included a hot powerful shower which was lovely to come back to after a long cycle around a lake close by. And then there is the hot tub....absolutely sensational; speakers so you can play your music, options to change the jet settings, curtains you can draw if you'd like more privacy...perfect. All in all, we came away totally chilled and dying to book again for next year. Really wonderful!

My partner and I got a really good deal here for New Year! It was absolutely fantastic,
Everything was better than we imagined, the complementary champagne and chocolates were a lovely touch and went down a treat when we got engaged new year!! The yurts I was worried would be cold but with unlimited coal and logs we stayed toasty.
The bathrooms and sauna had under floor heating which was great after getting out of the hot tub, and the hot tub was on what ever time of day throughout our stay which was ace!! Connecting our phones too the hot tub for our music was really good too!
The kitchen had everything you needed and a table which we sat round and played board games as well as ate round both nights!
It really was a fantastic place and we can not wait to return!
Well done guys job well done! X

“Amazing Gettaway from it all”
Reviewed March 29, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Such a friendly Family, with really high ethical standards, so helpful and informative. the standard of cleanliness and facilities could not be faulted. This was a Christmas present from our daughter for Valentine's weekend. What a perfect gift it was.
Arrived to a roaring log burner, with guided tour of the facilities. beautiful walk in wet room and power shower..spent hours in the space age outdoor hot tub, Bluetooth'd to our own music collection off our phone. looking out at the stars (Even tho it was February what a couple of amazing nights)
Excellent kitchen facilities. Easy drive up to lake Vernwy and Waterfalls
The beauty of wales at its best. can't wait to return later in the year.

“Luxurious tranquility”
Reviewed March 10, 2015 for a stay in November 2014

We were looking for somewhere to completely get away from it all but with a bit of luxury too. The Secret Yurts more than hit the spot! It's hidden in a beautiful area of Wales, close to Lake Vyrnwy, and the yurts have gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside. Even though we stayed in mid-November, we stayed toasty inside our yurt, with the help of the woodburner. The yurts are beautifully kitted out, very cosy and romantic! There is a shared area in a separate building close by with a lovely kitchen/dining area, a wet room for each yurt and a sauna. The highlight, however, was sitting in the hot tub with a glass of bubbly, gazing up at the stars! We did mean to go out for a meal on our second night in the nearby village, but we loved the hot tub experience so much! Tracey was an ideal hostess, friendly and helpful. It was a really special experience and one which we would highly recommend and repeat.

“Idyllic Hideaway”
Reviewed March 3, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Lovely couple who were there to greet us and always happy to help us during our stay. Fire burning on arrival and we met the challenge of never allowing it to go out! It was absolutely the perfect retreat with the most comfortable bed we have slept in for a long time. Sitting in our Yurt, with the wind howling outside and all the candles lit felt sublime after an hour in the hot tub. Kitchen fully equipped and the shower room spacious and luxurious. I used the sauna which was a lovely bonus to the whole experience.
We would both highly recommend our lovely pre Christmas mini holiday.
