We stayed in the forest tipi for 3 nights with our two children 10 and 5. We had a wonderful time. It was great to get out of the rat race and enjoy family time in amazing peaceful surroundings. The forest tipi is the most secluded on the site which is located up a steep hill but was well worth...

Our experience was a perfect balance of privacy, comfort, relaxation, romance, and 'oneness' with nature! Eco Retreats made it easy for us to shop online and pay for our trip, find our way to the location, park, and use the well maintained, quality and unique facilities on site. Staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome -...

Have travelled here a few times now. If you want a break that is everything the city is not then this is the place for you. It offers total piece and tranquility deep in the country where you are at o e with the surrounding countryside.

Eco retreats is in a secluded piece of forestry land, comprising a very small number of traditional tipi and yurt accommodation set amongst gorgeous countryside, surrounded by trees, streams and clean fresh air. I visited with my girlfriend and a couple we know, with them staying in the river yurt and myself in the waterfall tipi. We were welcomed and...

This trip was bought for myself and boyfriend by his sister, I'm not usually one for camping of any sort so I was a bit apprehensive but it was the loveliest little get away. The tipi was kitted out with all the essentials and the views when we woke up were absolutely stunning. We've recommended the trip to everyone we've...

From the very beginning this place takes you on a surreal experience They state it is quite a way away from anything, which is usual an over exaggeration...but they really meant it. We starting by driving over a bridge and up a forestry road, the road turned into a gravel track, we drove a bit more winding up through the...

We've just returned from a 4 night stay in the Meadow yurt with our 15 year old son. Not sure anything I can say will do our holiday justice, the welcome was friendly(thank you Heidi) and after a years of many medical problems I instantly started to feel relaxed. We loved being woken up by our very own Baaaarbershop chorus,...

Firstly - the setting is absolutely beautiful, and clearly a lot of love has gone into the creation and upkeep. Michael was extremely friendly and welcoming and I cannot fault his passion and commitment to eco retreats. I have put off writing a review because i really feel our experience was down to personal preference and I am sure many...

Thanks very much for your review and feedback. I’m so sorry that you didn’t have the relaxing break you were hoping for. As you point out we do try to describe our site as it is; the toilet facilities are a Swedish design compost loo (Separett) and are the best we have found for our site with no mains running...

I bought a package on Virgin Experiences to take my partner away for a weekend with no worries on our minds - this package included reiki, meditation session and a welcome hamper. Our welcome hamper was forgotten about which is why I have given this review 4 stars - because there was no signal in such a remote location we...

Thanks very much for your review. I’m very sorry indeed that we forgot to include your welcome hamper but happy that we could rectify this during your stay.
