Retreats – Encilion
The Ceridwen Centre offers the perfect space to find peace, tranquility and inspiration, to go deeply into the work you’re there to do, without distraction. Our staff and facilities help create an environment that is supportive, nurturing and intuitive to the needs of your group. Returning guests feel like they’re ‘coming home’.
It is the diversity of the groups and guests we welcome here that make the Ceridwen Centre such a stimulating and dynamic venue. No two groups are the same. Organisers that have been coming for years become good friends and regular guests look forward to the standard of hospitality they have come to expect and look forward to every time. There are no rules as to what is possible, from an art day school with lunch to a week long qualification course. We are simply the facilitators that help make your event such a success.
Ceridwen houses the majority of bedroom accommodation (sleeping up to 19 in 8 separate bedrooms), dining and relaxing areas whilst the Old Dairy is the large group space within the main farm complex, fifty metres uphill from Ceridwen. The new Byre cottage conversion is adjacent to the Old Dairy and can accommodate up to six. The Old Dairy and Byre can be linked through a hallway or kept separate.
You and your group may all comfortably stay in Ceridwen, but if your numbers exceed the ideal or you have guests that would like to be more independent or have greater privacy, there are options available in also using the Byre, Gypsy Cwtch Romany wagon, farmhouse B&B rooms, Eco Pod, Hop shack, converted double decker bus and yurts.
Our food goes down so well with guests we might admit it may be a small distraction to what you’re there to do! We serve delicious vegetarian fare that surprises even the most die hard of carnivores. We work with the needs of your group, including special dietary requirements. Breakfast is a delight of fresh and dried fruit, yoghurt, cereals etc, plus homemade jams and preserves. Lunch may be a tart and salads or soup and jacket potato. The evening meal is two course of main and dessert, served and finished off with locally roasted filter coffee.
If you would like to be pampered with beauty and/or holistic treatments while you’re with us, we can arrange for experienced local therapists to visit our guests. Ask for details before you come s that we can pre-book your treat.
If you or any children in your group are interested in Art and/or Craft workshops while you’re with us, we have a resident Art teacher – again please contact us to arrange in advance.
The Old Dairy and Byre are perfect for small meetings, conferences, Seminars and team building events. Contact us to discuss your needs.
