News & Offers from Gilfach Wen Barn

Retreat to South Wales

July 25th 2021

Dark skies and a tranquil atmosphere await. A converted barn, Gilfach Wen excels in providing comfortable and affordable accommodation.

Groups have booked  for retreats. The lounge is large enough to move the furniture to one side and use the space for meditation, or yoga. I can also offer the option of setting under the canopy one of the ancient oaks on the farm if you prefer to enjoy being in an undisturbed landscape. With nothing to disturb or distract Gilfach is a superb location to reconnect with nature. Contact us for more info.
