The Dreaming Retreat in Wales Is Now Open. Hello everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be sharing a press release of the opening of the Dreamy Retreat in Wales. Looking for a serene and peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life? Look no further than The Dreaming, a new wellness retreat in tune with nature, in Md-Wales. Founded by singer, activist and dreamer Charlotte Church, The Dreaming is nestled in 47 acres of beautiful grounds within the spectacular Elan Valley in the heart of Wales. The retreat offers a unique opportunity to unwind and reconnect with nature.
The Dreaming Retreat In Wales Is Now Open
The Dreaming offers an escape from the complexity of modern life, connecting people back to the land, to themselves, and their journeys. From short residential retreats with daily wellness activities to longer retreats with specialist practitioners, The Dreaming delivers a unique, exciting and nourishing menu of activities in keeping with the seasons.
When Charlotte Church decided to “have a nose” at a property in the Elan Valley in Wales, little did she expect Rhydoldog House to offer her an incredible challenge, allowing her to combine several of her passions in the creation of The Dreaming Wellbeing retreat.
The grounds of the former home of Laura Ashely boast waterfalls, rocks and caves and, quite simply, an abundance of natural beauty. Charlotte could see this as a place to combine the three things she strongly felt about climate action, economic equity, and well-being.
And so, The Dreaming began, with the journey witnessed by the many who have watched the documentary series on the Discovery Channel. Rhydoldog House has been transformed from a rundown property into a stunning wellness retreat which works both with and for nature.
And now The Dreaming is open for bookings. Whether you are a fan of the series and want to see the healing centre in the flesh or benefit from its outstanding offerings, a retreat at The Dreaming will boost your health and well-being.
What Can You Expect From A Stay At The Dreaming?
The retreats are three days and occur at the weekend (The Journeyer) and mid-week (The Nurturer). During the stay, guests are offered a wide selection of well-being activities. Whether you are looking for something grounded and practical, more interested in the profoundly soulful and esoteric, or a little bit of both, there is something for everyone.
The activities include yoga, a sound healing ceremony, foraging, mythic storytelling, star-gazing, cold water immersion, singing at dawn, den building, sensory portal building, painting, dance, dreamwork, outdoor cinema, herbalism, woodwork, meditation, Qi Gong, silent disco and night time forest bathing.
Guests are invited to participate in as many or as few of these offerings as they like. They can enjoy three days or curl up somewhere comfortable in the beautiful surroundings and read a book.
The building is conducive to relaxation and connection with the natural surroundings, with all the rooms carefully planned, themed, and tastefully and ethically decorated from east-facing rooms which allow guests to immerse themselves in the sunrise fully; to the purifying Moon room that looks out over the moon garden; to a Japanese themed room echoing the beautiful forest which can be seen from the window. All rooms have ensuite facilities, and three meals a day are provided in the equally stunning refectory, which offers spectacular views while you eat.
The retreat grounds are also impressive, and retreat stays include access to all 47 acres. Walk through the natural beauty and immerse yourself in unique spaces like The Waterfall Shower, Wood Henge and The Pool of a Hundred Reflections. For the super adventurous, The Den allows outdoor sleeping to experience the nocturnal wildlife comfortably.
The curated gardens are central to the sustainability ethos of The Dreaming and form part of many of the activities. For example, The Physic Garden provides medicinal herbs for the apothecary, where guests can craft teas, balms, tinctures, soaps and other lotions and potions. At the same time, a potting shed is a place for retreaters to mix soils and pot seeds, offering skills and insight into compassionate and responsible horticulture that can be applied when they return home.
While many might love the idea, they probably expect the cost to be prohibitive. But, with one of the founding principles being economic equity, prices start at just £450 for three nights, including all meals and activities. Additionally, to allow access for people of all means, The Dreaming offers a “pay what you can” space on every three-day retreat.
Charlotte Church said: “I have regularly tried to use my platform to campaign for climate action, economic equity, and wellbeing for all. Some of that has turned out to be effective and meaningful, but I always felt there was more I could be doing. I think that’s why I fell so utterly in love with Rhydoldog House, as it gave me a vision of an integrated healing centre in line with my most deeply held values. The realisation of that vision has completely changed my life, and I hope we can help our guests change their lives too, even if it’s just in small ways.”
I hope you enjoyed that.

I absolutely loved reading about The Dreaming Retreat in Wales! The photos of the stunning scenery were breathtaking, and I could feel the peaceful atmosphere just from reading your words. It sounds like a truly unique and special experience.
IT is trully a dream retreat place! I wonder if I couldn´t recommend it to my brides that might want to go and relax before their wedding day! Sounds like a perfect place!
This is great news. It’s a great place to excape the bustling cities and connect with nature.
Wow….the options here at The Dreaming are immense. Personally, I’d be torn between grabbing a book under the shade somewhere or relax under the trees….
I only ever been to Wales once a few years back. I like the country and the greenery. Always wanted to visit again, this may be my reason to.
Oh la la! The Dreaming Retreat looks like one of those places I would love to spend some time in. Thank you for the links to the retreat.
