The retreat you will love – from the heart of Wales.

Tyddyn Retreat (pronounced ‘Tuthin’) is a range of beautiful and nourishing spaces for organisations, groups and individuals, who wish to learn, work effectively or simply relax and revitalise.

The self-catering holiday cottages, workshop space and other indoor and outdoor facilities give you the flexibility to enjoy what you are looking for – whether a romantic retreat as a couple, a holiday with family and friends, a workshop or a special gathering. Currently we can welcome:

Workshops – up to 60 ‘theatre style’
Parties – up to 100 people
Accommodation – up to 30 people.

Surrounded by stunning scenery, Tyddyn Retreat is secluded and private, while also being easy to reach – by train (Caersws station 15 mins), or road (off the A470 ‘spine’ of Wales).


NEWS FLASH! .... Airbnb have kindly made us a Superhost again !.... We appreciate that ... and all of our Airbnb guests.  And for those out there in Airbnb hosting land... apparently it can make a difference being a Superhost. One of our recent guests, who uses Airbnb a LOT, says that she always looks out for the Superhost badge when searching....The same guest was kind enough to say "I stay in Airbnb accommodation often, and this is the best equipped place I have ever stayed in!". Thanks Helle. 😄
