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... More

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... More

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'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,... More

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 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... More

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.

At 66 years of age we were looking for something completely different to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, and found it with our two night stay in the waterfall Tipi.

Never have I felt so relaxed in all of my life. Everything was so perfect. I would love to re-do the whole weekend, we both really didn't want to come home! Even if it isn't something you normally do, I definitely recommend it. You won't regret it!

We had the perfect weekend at Eco Retreats, the team couldn't have done more to make sure we had everything we needed. Lots of support to find the location even though we arrived late in the day. The meadow was just perfect and very peaceful.
