Built at the height of the Georgian Regency period in 1809, Glandŵr is a grade II listed country house in the village of Tresaith in south Ceredigion on the southern coast of Cardigan Bay. It offers five-star accommodation for up to 10 yoga guests.

Glandŵr has 6 rooms: 2 double bedrooms with either en-suite or private bathrooms. Two double rooms and two twin rooms share modern and contemporary decorated bathrooms with spectacular glass atrium skylights, bathtubs or walk-in showers.

Each room is decorated with its own unique style and with taste. They are also equipped with WiFi and a kettle to make yourself tea and coffee in the comfort of your own room. When you arrive in your room, you will find on your bed two towels and for people who share bathrooms, a bathrobe.

The house also offers a large open style kitchen, three comfortable lounges including a games room. You’ll have plenty of space to unwind and relax in a splendid location far from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

This house is a perfect location to run this mindful yoga retreat in Wales.

The Food

Downstairs, via a beautiful staircase, topped with a striking lantern which streams daylight into the middle of the house, you’ll find the thirty foot (nine metres long) kitchen and dining area. Surrounded by floor to ceiling windows with views of the surrounding countryside, you’ll have plenty of space to relax, chat and dine with the other guests.

In this great kitchen, Linda and her husband Alun, our hosts, will be cooking tasty, fresh and nutritious vegetarian meals. They source the ingredients locally and from farms around the retreat. They are fully prepared to accommodate any dietary or allergy requirement – just please let us know in advance.

3 meals per day will be served: light breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Optional activities

Tresaith is a quiet and picturesque seaside village with immense amounts of charm. One of its most attractive features is a dramatic cliff top waterfall where the river Saith cascades down onto the golden sandy beach below. The village is crossed by the famous Wales coastal path which starts at Queensferry in North Wales, and ends at Chepstow in South Wales.

It is a perfect setting for both keen walkers or gentle strollers. If you come by car, you can drive to several nearby castles and museums in the area or just enjoy the Victorian splendours of New Quay.

Glandŵr, the house where the retreat is held, is close to farm shops owned by local friendly farmers who will sell you their best cheeses, Welsh cakes and honeys etc. You can also visit the local pub, the Ship Inn with its scenic outdoor seating area where you can observe beautiful sunsets and enjoy some fine beers.

Glandŵr itself, is a beautiful and peaceful place to spend a quiet evening having a snooze, playing some pool or backgammon or watching a movie.
