The Retreat - Wales
The first of our Retreats - based in Aberystwyth Wales. We are looking forward to helping bereaved military familes have some much needed relax time and a place to get away from the day-to-day.
Based on a local site with great amenities including swimming pool, bar and cafe.
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.
Just a few photos and images from Retreat Wales and the surrounding areas.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
