“ I am very curious about you,” remarked a caller recently,“3 different people have recommended you.” Nothing special only human” was the response, but you will ﬁnd us heart centered and caring. The Hostel in fact is more like a very large family home with house guests.
On entering there is an immediate sense of intimacy and welcoming, the brightly coloured common room decked with paintings, ﬂowers and crystals. Inviting sofas surround the log ﬁre. Moon and crop-circle calendars add a touch of mystique.
For an ‘alternative’ holiday, to visit us and experience a true ‘Welsh Welcome’ in a caring, holistic atmosphere is what the place is all about - to chill out, reﬂect and ﬁnd oneself. Insomniacs often ﬁnd peaceful sleep and the place lends itself to creative inspiration. Library and mediation area are added features.Outside the landscape is truly stunning, while the gardens themselves offer various areas for tranquil thought, with a touch of Zen here and there. “Nothing special” but a visit may well be worth your while- even if it is just for a cup of tea.
