This extraordinary Grade II listed farmstead is heaven on earth, a special place to celebrate everything good in this world. Situated on the edge of the Skirrid Mountain, overlooking England and Wales, it's just a short walk to the top for 360 degree views across 6 counties.

With an eclectic design, the buildings retain original features dating back to 1570. Once the home of Captain Thomas James, the famous mariner who discovered the North West Passage, some of the beams are thought to come from ships of the period.

The Farmhouse is exceptionally spacious, offering 7 bedrooms (mostly en-suite), with 6 bathrooms and flexible accommodation for up to 23 people.

The Dairy offers an extra 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, sleeping up to 16, if some are children.

The Cider House sleeps up to 7 over 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms.

The Great Barn has cathedral sized grandeur with a vast suspended open fire and comfy sofas for 20, plus flexible tables for up to 46 and 2 WCs.

Wern-y-Cwm has been tastefully decorated with no expense spared, fitted out with unique style. This is an enchanting location for your holiday, business, sporting or special event. The setting, architecture, paintings, attention to detail in the properties is exceptional. The gardens, grounds and beauty of the landscape will create a wow factor hard to find elsewhere. Make it your own and create magical memories.

Each property has been carefully planned to be private and not overlooked by the others so there is no fear of being disturbed by your neighbours. However, should you need a combination of properties, they are close enough for all residents to congregate in The Great Barn for meals, training, or creative sessions.

We are happy to host retreats directly with Yoga Teachers, or if you would like a fully tailored service we have partnered with Huzur Vadisi to help you plan and be on hand throughout your stay.
