Plas Cadnant

The Venue

Our retreats take place at Plas Cadnant. A stylish, secluded country house on the Isle of Anglesey, nestled in 21 acres of private parkland, which gathers together for your pleasure; stunning views over Snowdon, a meandering river, magical waterfalls, world renowned historic gardens, lazy meadows, mature woodland and an oak framed building perfect for your yoga sessions. Described as “one of the most amazing retreats on the Isle of Anglesey”, it is the most peaceful haven away from busy life on the mainland.

The Accommodation

The Coach house is the largest property on the Plas Cadnant estate, accommodating up to 11 guests on two spacious floors with an impressive upstairs dining /sitting room with large wood burning stove. By night, candles, incense and log fires create the perfect atmosphere for complete relaxation. Its wonderfully comfortable beds, crisp white linen, fresh flowers, views over rolling parkland and piping hot power showers all make up the luxury and style of your retreat at this stunning country house.

The Location

The stunning Isle of Anglesey hosts 135 miles of rugged coastline with trails, expansive beaches, quiet coves, picturesque sea side towns and far reaching views to the snow capped mountain range of Snowdonia National Park. The nearest town of Menai Bridge overlooks the spectacular body of water the Menai Strait, with small islands sprinkled throughout. Menai Bridge is an easy ten minute stroll from the venue, and boasts an array of independent shops, vegan cafes and restaurants. The town lies by the impressive Menai Suspension Bridge, a sight to be admired, that spans between the island of Anglesey and the mainland. It’s all here to be explored and enjoyed, expect to have your breath taken away at every turn.

The Gardens

Time and time again our guests say how spectacular the gardens are and we know you will be blown away by their beauty. Over the past 25 years they have undergone a spectacular transformation and have been lovingly restored to their former glory. Winter finds the carpets of Snowdrops, then Daffodils bloom in Spring, scented Sweet Peas climb in the Summer sun and in Autumn, the vibrant red leaves hang silently on the trees glowing in the morning light. In which ever season you choose to visit, the gardens are forever offering tranquil spaces to just be.
Plas Cadnant Yoga Space

The Yoga Space

Stroll through the walled garden, and majestic wooden gates to the oak framed building. With its lovingly hand crafted oak beams, high ceilings and under floor heating, it makes the ideal space for yoga and mediation practice. Bask in the rising sunlight during morning yoga and then enjoy settling down into candle lit relaxations in the evening. With the peace and tranquility of the surrounding parkland, it is your sanctuary from the outside world. All yoga equipment is provided, from mats to blocks and cushions to straps, so all you need to do is turn up.

The Swims

We tailor the swims to the groups’ requirements. So depending on how everyone’s feeling and what you fancy getting up to, depends on where we go. It could be anything from breathtaking coastal swims on the Isle of Anglesey, to floating about in the spectacular lakes of Snowdonia, to taking an active dip in some of the most stunning waterfalls Wales has to offer. Either way, you will feel invigorated and empowered as you connect back to nature. Your every safety will be catered for and we can provide as little or as much kit as you need. This retreat is suitable for all levels of swimming ability. Go to your team to see more about your guides.
