A flavour of recent testimonials from 2018 season guests:

“We had a wonderful and restful stay here in the Waterfall tipi. It has been the perfect place to reconnect with each other without the pressures of technology and the rat race. We’d recommend Eco Retreats to anyone and would love to come and visit again” – Waterfall tipi, May 2018

“The perfect off-the-grid getaway. Leaving feeling refreshed and revitalised” – River yurt, May 2018

“WOW – what a place! We’ve had the most wonderful time here – the outdoor bath, the view, the well stocked tipi, the shower and the loo. 10/10 from us – thank you! We’ll be back!” – Cwm Onnen tipi, May 2018

“Beautiful location, warm welcome and a well-equipped yurt. Everything we needed for a long weekend of peace and quiet. Loved the extra touches such as the star chart. Found that we spent a lot of time just observing the sheep and the beautiful hills and sky. Without knowingly being mindful, the tranquility of nature destressed and calmed us. Thank you and see you again! PS Try the bath! It’s great fun” – Meadow yurt, May 2018

“This place is magical – the setting is so beautiful and you really feel disconnected from modern life. We stayed as family of 5 (me, my wife and 3 kids aged 7, 11 & 15). The Waterfall Tipi was fantastic – really cosy and so private. We were all blown away by the wood fired bath – we really didn’t think it would work/heat up but it was fantastic – to have a relaxing bath right in the woods was the stuff of dreams. You really won’t regretting staying here and its in such a beautiful part of the world. We will certainly be back” – Waterfall tipi, May 2018

“Thanks for an awesome stay, this has been the perfect end for our honeymoon! The stroll you suggested up to the trig point was lovely, incredible views and lots of big puddles (some full of tadpoles!) … So much life! The bath is magical, and we are trying to work out if there’s a spot for one in our garden! It even beats a bath we had suspended over the mangroves in Tanzania!” – Cwm Onnen tipi, May 2018

“What an amazing place to escape to, to chill, to recharge and reconnect. Loved the hammock, watching the sunlight filter through the leaves up above. Take time to sit and contemplate down by the river. A walk through the site up the hill gives amazing views. The bath is a must. Never have I seen such long full moon shadows. A great place – a couple of days to cherish – thank you” – River yurt, June 2018

“Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. The break from the mad world has really recharged our batteries. We’re looking forward to coming again soon” – Cwm Onnen tipi, May 2018

“We got such a warm, friendly welcome and they really do go out their way to be there to meet & greet you (you’ll understand just how much when you go). What a truly beautiful site quite literally away from it all. We stayed in the Forest Tipi which was set within it’s own patch of land up a short trail to really give it an extra isolated feel. The outdoor bath really is amazing and well worth the wait to warm up, even in early April temperatures and light rain so would be absolutely perfect on more warmer nights. .. I’d highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a truly different experience and appreciates being close to nature and getting back to basics, while still retaining the comfort of a bed at night.”– Forest tipi, April 2018

“We opened the door to our tipi in the morning and watched the trees sway in the wind from the bed – I wish I could have this kind of a morning every day! We also watched an awesome sunset from the hill behind our tipi – thank you!” – Cwm Onnen tipi, May 2018

“First time here with the kids (3rd as a couple). We’ve had the most perfect stay and we wish it was longer. We explored, paddled, threw stones, built towers, heard owls, saw bats, osprey and a toad. Also caught a trout. Outdoor baths, campfires, marshmallows, cards … I could go on. It was wonderful to spend time as a family without electronics. PS – We will be back” – Meadow yurt, June 2018

“It was the best bath I’ve ever had and try going to the old barn it was amazing” – Meadow yurt, June 2018

“No way to fit it all in here. This place is stunning. Lots of space, the small number of sites are tactically located to ensure privacy. Each site is well appointed, but you still feel in touch with the wild surroundings. The views are so beautiful, with plenty of trails to hike. The outdoor wood fired tub has to be tried. Website says 1.5 hours to heat. Took mine longer, but more than worthwhile. The hosts are fantastic. They meet upon arrival, providing a thorough walkthrough of the site and amenities, remaining available for any needs you may have but not intrusive. The only bit I disliked was leaving. This place has to be experienced!” – Waterfall tipi, May 2018

“Beautiful scenery, fantastic, well-equipped, brilliantly functional accommodation. Perfect place to get away and unwind. We had a great time and will definitely come back” – Waterfall tipi, May 2018

“We had an amazing time away staying in this beautiful tipi! We particularly loved having a hot bath in the evening. The surroundings and walks are beautiful and the beds very comfy ☺ Thank you very much and we will be back soon” – Waterfall tipi, May 2018

“Thank you for being so welcoming when we arrived. Still as beautiful as our last stay. Beautiful views and sounds to wake up to. See you next time!” – Cwm Onnen tipi, May 2018

“What a wonderful place. We had everything we needed to enjoy a peaceful relaxing holiday. Perfect way to spend our first anniversary. Hosts very welcoming and happy to share walking tips. Will most definitely be back” – Waterfall tipi, May 2018

“This has been such a lovely place to relax and escape the everyday life. We had such an amazing time and will definitely come back again! We highly recommend the walk up the hill past the farmhouse, beautiful views! Thank you – see you again soon!” – Waterfall tipi, May 2018

“Thank you for letting us stay in this beautiful tipi! We have had an amazing couple of days and have everything we need. The furnishings are lovely and the bath is amazing! We will be back!” – Cwm Onnen tipi, May 2018
