Retreat

Brithdir Mawr Eco-Camping

Brithdir Mawr Wild and Eco Camping is a quiet site in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, at the foot of Carningli, two miles from the sea and about five minutes’ drive from Newport. Stays here are in a designated field that’s part of a well-established eco community set up in 1994 on an 80-acre restored farm. The whole place is off-grid for electricity and uses water from mountain springs; recycling even stretches to toilet waste, which is composted to feed the site’s fruit trees.

Retreat

Findhorn Ecovillage

Come to the iconic Findhorn Spiritual Community and enjoy a personal self-styled retreat by yourself or with your family and friends* while soaking up the energy of this sacred land and transformational field. Findhorn’s principles of inner listening, co-creation with nature and work as love in action have inspired countless authors, activists, change-makers, spiritual teachers and leaders including Robert Holden, Caroline Myss, Charles Eisenstein, Joanna Macy and countless more.
