Our River yurt is in a gorgeous location, nestled close to the river. It's a lovely space for a romantic getaway but we also often recommend the yurts for families or larger groups since they feel a bit more spacious than the tipis.

As with all our yurts and tipis, it is in its own secluded part of the site, well separated from all the other spaces so you won't be disturbed during your stay. Outside is your private wood-fired outdoor bath so you can enjoy a hot soak in the open air with stunning views!  There's also an outdoor fire and seating area so you can really make the most of the clear night skies.

Inside, the yurt has a lovely hand-made double bed with comfy mattress, organic bed linen, cushions, a coffee table, sheepskin rugs, a hand-crafted wood burning stove (all wood and kindling provided), lanterns and a gas stove. Cutlery, crockery and utensils are all provided for cooking. Outside you have your own private shower and eco-loo unit fed by fresh spring water from further up the hill. We provide solar shower bags for warm showers - these can be filled with heated water if the sun isn't out.

About Eco Retreats Forest Retreat

Remote, off-grid retreat in the heart of the Dyfi forest.

In a beautiful, remote valley, over four miles down a forest track in the heart of the Dyfi forest, you'll find the perfect place to reconnect to yourselves and to nature. Our two yurts and three tipis are spread out over about 50 acres, each in its own secluded location so you can really appreciate the peace and quiet. Each yurt/tipi is comfortably furnished and has a private outdoor wood-fired bath and an outdoor fire area. There's wonderful walking on site, and we're totally off-grid and wifi-free so it's the perfect place to escape the pressures of technology and return home refreshed and revitalized!

Glamping Site Facilities

Each tipi/yurt is kitted out with everything you need, except food. A private eco-loo and spring mountain ‘shower’ are on the doorstep.
