Ty Mam Mawr Off-Grid Eco Retreat Centre

Straw bale roundhouse and yurt from behind pond at Ty Mam Mawr eco retreat centre

Ty Mam Mawr off-grid eco retreat centre orbits around a beautiful straw bale roundhouse with luxury accommodation provided in two insulated and heated yurts, a log cabin with fully equipped kitchen and bathroom along with a smaller wooden shed with compost loo/shower and kitchenette by the larger yurt.

The roundhouse is a unique oval shaped timber frame straw bale building sitting at the heart of our retreat centre high in the Berwyn Mountains in North Wales overlooking the Dee Valley. It has many windows looking out onto the distant hills and nearby forests with magnificent big sky views.

It is a light, magical and powerful space…some call it a temple…with its reciprocating roof and central skylight that resembles a vortex to the higher realms.

The energy inside the roundhouse is light, pure, healing and playful. We wish to keep it like this and therefore do not allow alcohol, smoking or vapes in the space.

There is plenty of room in the straw bale roundhouse for 8-10 yogis to stretch out or for 20-25 folk to sit comfortably. Accommodation can be provided for up to 18 people (in 15 beds)  in the two yurts and the roundhouse.

We feel that the ideal numbers for an intimate retreat are 1-2 facilitators in the small yurt (2 double beds),  6 guests in the large yurt (1 king and 5 singles) with space for up to 4 more guests in the roundhouse on single mattresses. Further accommodation can be found locally in Cynwyd, Llandrillo and Corwen.

All our water comes fresh from mountain springs…pure energised medicine. Spaces are heated with wood burning stoves with firewood/logs and kindling available. There is a large central fire pit and another by each yurt.

Mains voltage (230v) electricity for sockets and lighting is supplied to all spaces provided by a renewable energy system using solar, hydro and wind generation. Internet access and WiFi are available if required.

Ty Mam Mawr off grid eco retreat centre is available for hire for workshops, retreats, seminars, team building and much more… please contact us to find out how we can help. The yurts also available individually or in combination on our sister site greenerglamping.uk.

The Roundhouse

Straw bale roundhouse at intimate off grid eco retreat centre Ty Mam Mawr in North Wales

The Straw Bale Roundhouse

It is a magical and powerful space…some call it a temple…with its amazing reciprocal frame roof and large central skylight that resembles a vortex to the higher realms…

The Roundhouse is an oval shaped timber frame straw bale building sitting at the heart of Ty Mam Mawr (House of the Great Mother), a peaceful and magical eco retreat centre high in the Berwyn Mountains in North Wales.

This space provides a calm and nurturing atmosphere that is conducive to letting go and allowing oneself to leave behind the worldly life.

Safely held inside The Roundhouse, we can sink sink deeply into our true essence, connect to nature and find the bubbling joy of being that is in our hearts.

With room for 8-10 yogis or 20-25 folk sitting, Ty Mam Mawr straw bale roundhouse is suitable for yoga classes, dance and music workshops, meditation retreats, seminars, team building events and much more…

When hired with both yurts the roundhouse will also accommodate up to 6 single mattresses.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch and discuss your requirements.

How she came to life…

The roundhouse was lovingly brought to life over the course of five months in 2017 by Nathan and Shayne working with a brilliant team of dedicated volunteers.
