Tyddyn Retreat is a private and secluded hideaway that is also easily accessible – Caersws station 15 mins, and directly off the A470 ‘backbone' of Wales. As an eco venue, Tyddyn Retreat encourage guests to travel by train and other public transport where possible, providing a collection service from Caersws (15 mins), and running a range of tours up to Snowdonia and down to the Brecon Beacons, and everywhere between - making the most of the landscapes, history and fantastic activities that Mid Wales offers.

At Tyddyn Retreat we do our best to think of all that our guests will and might need. We regularly imagine staying in the accommodation (and sometimes do!), and spend time in the workshop space, to see and feel what else might make the experience even better. “You’ve thought of everything” is commonly said. We genuinely welcome new ideas from our guests. Please watch out for the range of Tyddyn Retreat packages including accommodation, tours and films in the workshop cinema. Here are some of the themes: • landscape, wilderness and nature • history, culture and sites of special interest • action adventures • Little Trains of Wales travels and memories. Tyddyn Retreat has a feast of maps and books about the area and will introduce you to all manner of fabulous local food and eating places, plus opportunities to buy take-home treats and crafts made in Wales. You might even enjoy fun ways to learn some words of Welsh! For information on group or venue bookings, please see our website and contact us direct. Thank you More

Such a wonderful place, set in breathtaking scenery and close to Snowdonia, beautiful beaches, quaint market towns, and stunning forests. We would have stayed forever if we could. The cottage was immaculately clean, warm (we didn't even need to light to wood burner!) and a...More

How to get there
We will send you detailed directions as soon as you book with us, to make your arrival smooth and easy. Meanwhile.... From Welshpool, take the A483 to Newtown. As you enter the town, by the McDonald’s traffic lights, turn right. Follow the road round, over the roundabout by a large church, & continue on the rural road through Aberhafesp & Llanwnog to the T junction. Turn right here onto the A470 & continue for around 4 miles to Carno. Drive through the village. As you leave Carno, the road does a ‘wiggle’ over the railway: from this point, Tyddyn Retreat is exactly 1.2 miles on the left – a closed metal farm gate with a red post box by it. Down the lane, through the next gate, under the railway line & you will arrive at Tyddyn Retreat.
