Delicious Mid Wales

High in the Cambrian Mountains - the most unspoilt and wild landscapes in Wales, Tyddyn Retreat is within 30 minutes of Snowdonia and 45 from the wonderful coastline at Aberdovey – a brilliant base for walking, cycling, a multitude of adventure activities, and the peace of castles and gardens.

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 35 ‘theatre style’
Parties – up to 60 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).

"Oh my goodness.... this is gorgeous. The photos were beautiful - but BEING HERE is so much more wonderful than I ever thought it could be! We'll definitely be back – to 'our' holiday cottage!"

Catherine Howley, HorseHeard

"This was absolutely the perfect venue (inside and out) for our retreat. I'd been searching for really special group accommodation. We all work very hard around the world, and needed somewhere to relax and revive at the same time as working well together. Your help in facilitating a session for us was a special bonus. Thank you!"

Neil Jeffrey, CEO, Renewable World

"I love how you have kept the natural beauty of the stone barns while making them so luxurious – and eco as well ! Our group had such a special time with you again – in the peace and beauty of the meeting space, the barns and on the land. See you next year"

Jules Heavens, Soundweaver

"I have been a guest here for over a week. Romy is generous and kind. We had quite a snowstorm and I was never lacking for warmth and comfort. It has been a pleasure to bundle up and walk the land and surrounding hills, crossing the streams with their amazing colorful local stone. So many precious new kinds of birds in my Journal! I shall return..."
