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.
You love our vibe and our Big Retreat tribe love meeting year after year- catching up with new friends and family. We limit our size (max 3000 tickets) to keep this atmosphere. We’re small - but strong!
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.
