Yurt with futon beds

General

  • Yurts in a private meadow surrounded by ancient oak woodland
  • Less than 20 minutes' drive from Oxwich Bay, Caswell Bay and Swansea
  • Woodburning stoves and kitchens; holistic therapies available to book

Sort yourself a stellar stay in scenic south Wales at Seren Retreat, a 20-minute drive from Swansea city centre: this hideaway combines a top location close to west Glamorgan beaches with comfy yurt accommodation set in a private meadow encircled by an ancient oak forest.

Being right in the middle of the Gower Peninsula – the first place to be named as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the United Kingdom – means beaches like Oxwich Bay, a haven for seal spotting, are an easy 20 minutes’ drive away.

Also build sandcastles at Llangennith (20 minutes), head off on the Wales Coast Path for hikes around Rhossili with views out to the Worms Head promontory (25 minutes) or take surfing lessons at the school at Caswell Bay just over 15 minutes away. Horse riding lessons can be organised nearby (check at the park for details) and yoga classes and holistic therapies are available on site.

After a stretching session, head into your Mongolian-style yurt’s kitchenette equipped with pots, pans and cutlery to sate hunger using ingredients from the artisan delis at the quayside village of the Mumbles (20 minutes’ drive away); Swansea-born actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has a house in this famed and fancy Victorian settlement…

If it starts getting chilly, the yurts also have a woodburning stove to gather round (and each tent comes with a private compost loo). Shared facilities include pure spring water on tap for drinking, and a shower block with hot and cold water.

Please note

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

    Really authentic experience. The meadow and surrounding woodland give a feeling of privacy and an exclusive feel. We all had an amazing night laughing and joking and playing our instruments around the campfire. Unfortunately the weather the following day was awful but I know there are plenty of areas of outstanding beauty here and we can't wait to return (with better weather!)

    The landscape is gorgeous. The yurts are very comfortable and the kitchens have all that you can possibly need for your time there. It's a very safe place for staying with little children and young kids can go exploring the forest on their own too. Beautiful experience highly recommended. The location is very handy to explore the Gower.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

As you might already have gathered, the Gower brims with beaches, but there are also other alternatives for offshore swims, including Broughton Bay’s calm natural rock pool (25 minutes) and the 50-metre Wales National Pool Swansea (15 minutes).

In between refreshing dips, cultural and historical activities to set off on include trips to Oxwich and Oystermouth castles or Swansea’s museums (all around 20 minutes); a couple of the most recommended are the National Waterfront Museum for an insight into Wales’ industrial past and The Tram Shed if you’re taken by time-honoured types of transport.

For wildlife-rich attractions, try the WWT Llanelli Wetlands Centre for birdwatching and Clyne Gardens, a 25- and 15-minute drive away respectively, to snoop about among the rare species of plants. For the kids meanwhile, Pembrey Country Park (45 minutes) has a pitch and putt course, a dry ski slope and a model railway.

Must see

  • National Wetland Centre Wales (6.8 kilometres)
