The Retreat

Retreat Wales is our 6 birth caravan with a double bedroom, twin room and fold out double bed in the living area.


The town is the unofficial capital of Mid Wales, and several institutions have regional or national offices there.
Although the town is relatively modern, there are a number of historic buildings, including the remains of the castle and the Old College of Aberystwyth University nearby.

Retreat Wales - Why you should visit.

Founded by Lyn and Ian Rigby after the loss of their son, Fusilier Lee Rigby. Lyn’s own experience and that of her family is compelling evidence of need for this project, and it is to help other families in the same situation. Having found that there are a great many more families in similar need of such support, we decided that retreats like ours help the families in so many more ways than just a simple holiday.


Retreat Wales is founded to help families get away from day-to-day stresses and hopefully enable families to gather and spend quality time together in a neutral surrounding.

Walkers Paradise

Aberystwyth and the surrounding areas are a walker and climbers paradise with a number of walks to choose from including a stunning 5 mile walk hugging the coastline all the way to Borth.

Aberystwyth Castle

Make time to see Aberystwyth Castle. The English castle was built to keep the Welsh out in the 13th century, at the same time as Flint, Rhuddlan and Builth Wells’ castles were erected.

Camera Obscura

At the north end of the prom, is the world’s largest Camera Obscura, which provides a bird’s eye view of more than 1000 square miles, in a 360 degree sweep around Aberystwyth.

Eat and drink

Aberystwyth is a foodie heaven, with an abundance of options for all tastes and budgets. Cocktails are a must at 'Y Bañera', aptly named as it’s situated in Bath Street (Bañera meaning ‘bath’ in Spanish).


There’s lots of lovely independent shops in Aberystwyth, so if you are stocking up on holiday gifts, bring an empty case.

Electric Car Friendly

Aberystwyth was recently a runner up in Electrifying.com's top electric car friendly destinations getaway guide. A list of charging points can be found on Zap-map.com

Finally... Taron Egerton

One of Aberystwyth's more recent famous exports is Taron Egerton, star of 'Eddie the Eagle', 'Kingsman - The Secret Service' and smash hit film 'Rocketman' for which he won a Golden Globe.
