however you find your feel good...

WHAT IS THE BIG RETREAT?

We inspire our festival goers to leave the stresses of the 9-5 week at the door and join us for a weekend of discovery and wonder.


Voted one of the “Top 5 Adventure and Wellbeing festivals” by the Guardian we strive to be the top boutique wellbeing festival in Wales and the U.K.


The Big Retreaters are warmly invited to explore and discover the latest “feel good” experiences in the wellness industry. It’s all about “having a go” and trying out new ways to “find your feel good” in a safe and supportive space. We believe that exploration and trying new things will enhance our festival goers everyday lives and instill long term positive change.


Our experiences include everything from fire walking to an icy gin, cookery demos to comedy, music to meditation, a sweaty gym session to chilled out yoga and wild swimming to gong baths. Be inspired by our panel of speakers and experts in the Talk Tent or chill out in the Soul Space.


Whether you are an experienced yogi or just looking to dip your toe into ways to “find your feel good”. We have an abundance of #feelgood experiences for you to discover at The Big Retreat Festival.
