"Cynefin (pronounced kin-ev-in) is a Welsh word with no direct English translation, meaning ‘rooted in place’, somewhere we instinctively belong."
Located on the Welsh border, Cynefin Retreats are the ultimate luxury escape surrounded by nature. If you're looking to switch off for a few days, then look no further than Cynefin Retreats; set amongst woodland you'll be able to soak up the silence.
If you're looking for a romantic retreat then the Luxe-Pods are for you, cosy, intimate, yet beautifully designed with a wood burning stove, floating bed, hot tub on the deck, walk in shower and an open plan, fully equipped kitchen - these pods offer luxury, charm and escapism.
The Luxe-Lodges are the newest addition to Cynefin and each offer two spacious bedrooms making them perfect for friends, families, or if you're just after a little more space.
In the lodges you'll find a super king bed (and a twin bed in the second bedroom), a private decking with hot tub, BBQ grill and fire pit, standalone bath tub and separate shower.
These beautiful timber clad lodges nestle seamlessly into their lush surroundings, offering a tranquil retreat.
Exploring the local area
We recommend spending half a day browsing the stunning market town of Hay-On-Wye, less than a 10 minute drive from Cynefin Retreats. Dubbed the book town of the UK, Hay-on-Wye houses over 30 bookstores! Stop off for some lunch at eclectic 'The Old Electric Shop' for some delicious Vegetarian food!
