RETREAT FOR WOMEN & MEN
COMMUNITY | WILD GATHERING
CONNECTING IN NATURE. IN A VALLEY, WALES.
A wild retreat for both men & women (by popular demand) in 200 acres of beautiful Welsh landscape. This unique off-grid camping experience is an opportunity to reconnect and reignite a sense of a community, during a time of separation. A unique adventure for those wishing to escape city life and immerse themselves in nature.
Relax by the riverside, go on walkabouts; explore surrounding hills, waterfalls, rock gorges & rock pools. On site, you'll have access to a wood fired sauna and both a private men's and a women's lodge. These are communal indoor spaces for you to use at your own free will.

There will be guided walks available and activities to take part in, however, you are free to roam and explore the site at your own free will. There will be plenty of opportunities for solitude in nature, if you enjoy exploring nature.
