The Owner Says
The Forest yurt is in our most secluded spot, surrounded by lovely ancient oak woods. It does involve a walk up a steep slope to get there (please contact us if you are unsure about this) - but you can be sure of feeling totally removed from everyday life and worries once you arrive!
Outside you have your own private wood-fired outdoor bath so you can enjoy a hot soak in the open air! and an outdoor fire and seating area - the stars are breathtaking, away from the light pollution of the city.
There's also a private hot shower and eco-loo unit, with water from a spring up the hill. Inside, there's a double futon with comfy mattress, organic bed linen, a coffee table, a hand-crafted wood burning stove (all wood and kindling provided), and a gas stove. Cutlery, crockery and utensils are all provided for cooking.
Features & FacilitiesEach yurt is kitted out with everything you need, except food. A private outdoor wood-fired bath, eco-loo and spring mountain ‘shower’ with stunning views are on the doorstep.

Food & Drink
The Slaters Arms is a brilliant local pub in Corris and The Wynnstay Hotel (01654 702941) at Machynlleth is a gastro pub with a great atmosphere (and good food) in the bar plus a separate pizza restaurant. Number 21 bistro (01654 703382), on the high street, is another local highlight.
Eco Retreats is hidden in the heart of 600 acres of unspoilt forest. It’s a four-mile journey on ‘forestry’ roads (which takes about an hour) off the A487. Directions are given on booking.
Trains arrive in Machynlleth about every two hours via Birmingham, a taxi to the site takes about 20 minutes and costs about £20.
