however you find your feel good...

WHAT IS THE BIG RETREAT?

Ever left a festival feeling better than when you arrived?

Welcome to The Big Retreat. 

 

Three uplifting unforgettable days to relax, reflect and rebuild.Welcome to bands, books, inspiration, energy, and calm – to an adventure for all five senses. 

 

Welcome to fitness, yoga, invigorating sea air, and a chance to leave the world behind on this stunning, unspoilt western edge of Wales. 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 catering for all tastes and filling your days with magic.

So we offer over 200 carefully curated events, experiences, workshops and talks. From things you may have savoured before, to experiences that will blow your mind. Our little retreaters will also feel right at home with snorkelling, dance classes, circus skills, bushcraft, foraging, music, and arts & crafts.

We put our heart and soul into our festival. Our guests are family. And when the sun sinks serenely into the ocean on Tuesday evening, we’ll bid you farewell as you journey East, back to the world. On Tuesday you’ll stroll back through the doors of your life, brimming with wonderful festival memories. No war stories. No swagger. No need.
