Escape, relax and recharge at this unique off-grid retreat deep in the Dyfi forest.

Situated 25 minutes off the tar road on a working organic farm, Eco Retreats is an off-grid, wifi-free, sustainable tented camp with accommodation in yurts and tipis. Here guests will feel far away from the stresses and strains of modern day living and will have the opportunity to rediscover the simple pleasures of life as they relax into the rhythms of the forest.

Each yurt or tipi is set in its own private area, away from other guests. There are just 5 units spread over 50 acres - with their own private eco-loo and shower block and a private wood-fired bath, a new take on the Hot Tub.

Great for couples and families to spend time away from the TV, computers and mobile phones, reconnection with nature and with each other. Children can experience the joy of playing freely outside in the meadows and streams. Perfect for a special occasion or just to get away from it all.

Well-situated with a host of things for the whole family to do within 30-60 mins drive - beaches, mountains, walking, adventure, culture, markets. Meditation and Reiki sessions also available on site.

2-night minimum stay during the peak periods. Prices from £225 for 2 weekday nights in a tipi or £245-£265 in a yurt. Weekends from £279 for 2 nights. Discounts for stays of 3 nights plus.

Prices include bedding and all firewood.

Closed during winter months. No pets.

Absolutely picturesque

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights at the start of April. It was booked as a surprise for me, and what an awesome surprise it was.
If you want to get back to nature and be surrounded by the beauty of Wales, this is the place for you.
The tipis come very well equipped with everything that you would need and warm up extremely quickly with their own wood burners. Cutlery, pans, tealights, tea, coffee, hot choc, playing cards it's all there for you. The management, who are lovely, even have a wood shed all ready, and a camp fire area set up outside.
The only thing I would say is ensure you take kebab sticks and marshmallows for nights by the fire.
Also, make sure you go for lots of walks as there are some absolutely amazing views just a 10 minute walk away.
I cannot wait to rebook and go back again, it really was such a beautiful experience.
