"Wonderful food, wonderful welcome, wonderful venue. Many thanks" Sue, September 2017. More reviews
Huzur Vadisi yoga retreats in Wales offer the perfect combination of beautiful location, great facilities, and accessibility, set amidst rolling hills of rural Wales. Beautiful space with gardens, a stream, and extensive views and plenty of walks in the hills and valleys right from the doorstep. There is also a gym and Finnish sauna.

Only around 3.5 hours from London and 2.5 from Manchester or Birmingham by road or train, yet a world away, deep in rural Wales (even the local station is charming), the venue is set amidst the rolling hills surrounding the historic and pretty town of Llanidloes… a place time seems to have forgotten. The town often features in the top ten best places to live in Britain…a picturesque and sleepy place, with lots of characterful small independent shops and a historic half-timbered market house.

"I have been in Wales with Jane and Rowan in October/16 and my eyes tear up when I think of them. The place was just beautiful, in the Welsh countryside, surrounded by green fields and sheep, and Jane and Rowan cooked AMAZING..OMG… meals for us, took care of our every need, arranged cabs for us, booked massages on our behalf, treated us like friends and family and gave us each a Welsh Water Farewell Blessing when we, left. I am so thrilled to recommend them..and no, they didn’t ask me to do this..love you Jane and Rowan... and thank you <3 <3 <3″ – Ingrid Smith
