About the retreat
Join us for a couples-exclusive 3-day meditation and yoga retreat in the unspoiled countryside of Powys
It’s all too easy to get swept away by the busyness of daily life. In the midst of responding to and juggling our work, home, and family responsibilities, we may feel that we’ve lost touch with ourself and our partner. We may fall into the same routines and get stuck in the same conflicts as life becomes more about practicality than enjoyment, playfulness and love.
This unique wellness retreat, which consists of workshops, guided meditations and yoga practices, has been designed to help you let go of that which separates you from genuine wellbeing and to liven and energise your relationship with yourself and your partner. By exploring concepts such as inner peace, non-attachment, appreciation and forgiveness, we can ease our fears and open our hearts, and discover a more joyful, loving, and happy life.
About The Venue
An unspoilt and enchanting forest retreat in Powys
We’re delighted to host our Couples Retreats in the beautiful and peaceful setting of Llethrau Forest, nestled in the rolling hills of the Welsh border, right on the border of Powys and Shropshire. This self-catering retreat centre is the perfect place to get away from it all, unwind and relax, far away from the stresses and strains of modern life. One of Wales’s true secret escapes, Llethrau is set on 24 acres and features woodland, wild gardens, rivers, hidden paths and walks.
A range of private and unique options
Couples can choose a private bedroom in one of the two beautiful Holiday Cottages, or take one of the five uniquely styled Shepherds Huts or Yurts that are elevated on 24ft decking and situated amongst the forest & trees. All options have self-catering facilities so that you and your partner can prepare meals together. Click on the options below to see more information and pictures.
