Ever left a festival feeling better than when you arrived…..?
Welcome to The Big Retreat – four uplifting, unforgettable days to relax, reflect and recharge.
Welcome to an adventure for all five senses. Discover energy, inspiration, bands, books, new tastes and inner calm.
Welcome to fitness, yoga, adventures in art, wild swimming in the invigorating fresh air, and a chance to leave the world behind on the stunning, unspoiled western edge of Wales.
And welcome to sumptuous feasts where raw and vegan delicacies square off against wood fired pizza, craft gins and, trust us, the best burgers on earth.
We’ve left nothing undone to help you Find your Feel Good.
We believe in filling your days with magic. So we offer over 300 carefully curated events, classes, workshops and talks
From things you may have enjoyed before, to things which will stop your mind in its tracks.
We encourage you to try something new – see if it fits, if it inspires, maybe changes your perceptions, if it makes you Feel Good.
And space for kids. A football pitch for hours of fun, trampolining and fitness classes, family yoga and mindfulness, dance classes, bushcraft and den building, foraging, music, and arts & crafts. And running around. A lot.
We put our heart and soul into our festival.
Our guests are our family. And when the sun sinks serenely in the West on Monday evening we’ll bid you farewell as you journey back to your world. On Tuesday you’ll stroll back through the doors of your life, brimming with wonderful festival memories.
This is us.
A 'Feel Good' Getaway
We believe in the power of the outdoors to enhance physical and mental wellbeing. To ground but also uplift. To nourish, restore and inspire.
To our Big Retreat Family,
Thank you for those who came back to our festival. Words cannot express how incredible it was to finally see old faces (and new) for the first time in 3 years. The road to get here has been long and not without its own challenges and we couldn't have got through it without your support.
So thank you again from the bottom of our hearts and can't wait to see you all again in 2023.
Love Amber and the team xx
