Welcome

Helen, Jayne, Pat & Petrena are delighted to announce another exclusive weekend retreat in the gorgeous setting of Elan Valley Lodge in the Elan Valley, Rhayader.

Just 2 hours drive from Cardiff is Elan Valley Lodge, a renovated village school with comfortable single and double (twin-bed) rooms, a small guest kitchen with fully-stocked 'Loyalty Bar', larger catering kitchen, dining area, communal lounge, a large, newly-extended meeting room and a breakout room making it the perfect place for group activities - a heavenly, holistic hideaway!

Yoga sessions with Jayne & gong bath sound healing with Pat will take place in the large first floor meeting room with views of the river and surrounding hills; meditation sessions with Helen will take place outside (weather permitting) or in the communal lounge; complementary therapy sessions with Petrena, Pat & Helen will be available in the first-floor breakout room.

It is anticipated that we will have the building to ourselves so with a maximum number of 20 guests on the retreat, it will be an opportunity to relax, let go of the stresses & strains of daily life and unwind in the wonderful setting of the Elan Valley.

Accommodation is comfortable and cosy with twin-bed double rooms having en suite facilities, for those who would like to share with a partner or friend, and pairs of single rooms sharing bathroom facilities.

The catering is being provided by amazing staff at the Lodge, who will be serving us with home cooked food using local produce. What is more, they can cater for all - meat-eaters, vegetarian, gluten free and vegan!

In addition to what we are offering during the retreat there is also the nearby Elan Valley Visitors Centre (click here for their calendar of events), lots of lovely places to go walking and the town of Rhayader is not far where you can go and watch the red kites feeding time!
