The Owner Says
Our River yurt is in a gorgeous location, nestled close to the river. It's a lovely space for a romantic getaway or for families to enjoy.
As with all our yurts and tipi, it is in its own secluded part of the site, well apart 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.
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.
You won’t want to leave! But Eco Retreats is close to amazing beaches, forest, mountains, markets, culture and places to eat and drink.

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.
