Tyddyn Retreat (pronounced ‘Tuthin’) offers beautiful spaces ideally suited to organisations, yoga retreats, business events and workshops, special celebrations or simply holidays and short breaks allowing you to relax and revitalise with family and friends.

The self-catering holiday cottages, workshop space and other facilities offer great flexibility for a range of groups in a private and peaceful setting:
Workshops and weddings – up to 60 theatre style
Parties – up to 100
Accommodation – for a maximum of 33

The stone barns are beautifully converted spaces filled with light and natural materials. Stylish and comfortable, with high beamed ceilings, oak floors, locally crafted oak windows and furniture, cosy wood burners and lovely Welsh fabrics.

Groups can take advantage of the inspiring meeting space, for workshops, training events and small conferences, a private cinema, family and group gatherings to celebrate special events… and much more. Catering or self-catering is your choice. We can help design your event, drawing on many years of experience in event design and facilitation.

Tyddyn offers guests a sense of luxury with the highest eco standards and little extras – steam shower, personal sauna and massage are available. Outside there's a tipi, stone circle and private seating areas to explore. Disabled facilities, a laundry and drying room, cycle rack and a dog friendly welcome are all here. "You've thought of everything!" many guests say.

At Tyddyn we can provide plenty of locals information and advice on how to make the most of your time here - whether you are looking for high adrenaline adventures, great walking and cycling, pure relaxation or just somewhere to eat out together.
