Nestled in the Dulas valley, Hirfon sits within five and a half acres of woodland and pasture, a no-dig kitchen garden, bee-friendly courtyard, young orchard and wild flower meadow. Our water comes from a hill spring, and in a move towards more sustainability, we have installed ground-source heating for the house and barns. Whilst here, you may join us in our daily rhythm of prayer and meditation, working in the kitchen garden or in the art studio, or spend the time in solitude. There are quiet sitting places indoors and outside with views over the Dulas valley and longer walks in the surrounding Cambrian hills. Spiritual accompaniment is available on request.

Visitor information

You are most welcome to stay for a personal retreat and quiet space, in one of our two restored stone barns.

Opening times

The barns are available on a self-catering basis from Monday to Friday for 2-4 nights. Please enquire about availability and terms.
We occasionally have quiet mornings on a Saturday. Please enquire about dates.
