General

  • Spectacular scenery site in the Berwyn mountain foothills
  • Private access to a bluebell and badger wood
  • Breakfast baskets and backpack and hamper picnics

Obviously it can't be absolutely guaranteed. But the best night's sleep you've had in yonks should be a definite possibility among the serene silence of Wales's Wyldwood Retreat on the Welsh border...

This peaceful place is set in an exceedingly silent part of land among the foothills of the Berwyn mountain range and looking down onto a scenic secluded valley with views of Gyrn Moelfre. It's highly popular with those who like to tire themselves out walking, biking or shopping among its surrounds, and is right on the Welsh border eight miles from Oswestry and 25 from both Shrewsbury and Chester.

Campfires are allowed, but if you feel that cooking on hol is a bit of a faff, breakfast baskets, backpack and hamper picnics sourced when possible from the owners' veg garden are all available for a small fee; please enquire on arrival. (But do light the fire later too Wyldwood is in proper stargazing land.)

By day, there's a three and a half acre organic garden to wander on site – also very peaceful – leading onto a privately accessed Woodland Trust forest brimming with badgers and bluebells.

    Fantastic long weekend over August Bank Holiday,
    Great quirky cabin, immaculately clean,
    Very well presented & equipped.
    Loved the flickering light of late dusk with the log burner lit.
    Tranquil garden surroundings with some stunning scenery and walks.

    Disliked: 

    Unless you enjoy walking you may need to travel to find things to occupy.

    Peaceful location with lovely views, stayed in the lodge which had everything you would need. Particularly liked the log burner at night, as it was quite chilly on an evening. The solar shower was lovely and hot, the Ecco toilet wasn’t as bad as I thought, the toilet and shower is shared between both Lodge and cabin. Dawn and Tony are brilliant host, they are never to far away if you need them, also regular visits from jasper the dog. Can highly recommend the breakfast hamper, had half for breakfast and the rest for dinner. We took a radio a few drinks and relaxed on an evening, just watching the sun setting.

    My boyfriend and I stayed in the Terrace Lodge in October 2017 for 2 nights and had an amazing time. The area and the grounds were really peaceful. Dawn and Tony were really welcoming and helpful. Jasper (the friendly dog) was hilarious and liked to follow us on walks. The accommodation was clean and cosy also, I love the outdoor kitchen and it wasn't too cold in October.

    We managed to find the location with no issues. Dawn and Tony are very friendly and helpful. The area is very quiet and peaceful, which was exactly what we were looking for. The log burner made the cabin feel very cosy.
    So if anyone is looking for a quiet peaceful relaxing location that you can go to escape then why not try this location.

    We had a very comfortable stay at the cabin despite the fact it rained most nights during our stay. The wood burning stove made it extremely cosy inside the cabin. The terrace kitchen had a fantastic view across the valley. Dawn & Tony are brilliant hosts, and Jasper the dog is a real character. Once the shower room is finished, it will be perfect.

    Dawn and Tony were very welcoming hosts and checked up on us throughout our stay to ensure we had everything we need. The lodge was clean, beautifully decorated and was really well equipped! Myself, my boyfriend and our dog enjoyed peaceful evenings on the patio with a BBQ and a gorgeous mountainous view and took walks out the back through the gardens.
    Couldn't have asked for anymore, would definitely like to return again soon!

Local attractions

Wyldwood Retreat is in a premier location for hill walking, gentle ambling, cycling, bird and badger watching, or delving into the many historic local sites. If you fancy horse riding, one- and two-hour hacks are available at the nearby equestrian centre.

Prefer some history? The site is 10 minutes' drive from Sycharth, the home of Owain Glyndŵr (the last native Welshman to hold the title Prince of Wales). Chirk and Powys castles with their gardens are within easy reach.

A 45-minute drive via spectacular scenery takes you to Lake Vrynwy, with its pumphouse, sculpture trail, dam and museum. Walk or take a narrow boat trip over the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, the longest and highest aqueduct in Britain and a World Heritage Site.

The sandy beaches, clean seas and mountain views of the north Wales coast are within a 90-minute drive: the Wyldwood Retreat team particularly recommends Harlech and Barmouth for golden sands and more Welsh heritage.

Closer to home, the village of Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant is five miles away and has food shops, a post office, a traditional butcher's, a restaurant, a fish and chip gaff and some friendly pubs. And a waterfall: Llanrhaeadr (Tan-y-Pistyll) Waterfall at 240 feet high is the highest in Wales and what the town is mainly famed for.

Also have a hike around ye olde market town of Oswestry, for its hill fort, many markets, Park Hall Farm and around 30 pubs, and around Shrewsbury and Chester, both 25 miles away from your sleepy base.

Must see

  • Powis Castle & Garden (13.9 miles)
  • Chester Castle (27.1 miles)
  • Cheshire Military Museum (27.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Chirk Castle (8.2 miles)
  • Attingham Park Estate: Cronkhill (25.6 miles)
