When daily life gets too busy and too stressful it’s important to take some time out. Take some time for ourselves, to recharge our batteries. As they say you cannot give from an empty cup! So what is the solution? We recommend a stay at a relaxation retreat in the beautiful surroundings of Mid Wales.
Squirrels Nest Treehouse Retreat is the ultimate in relaxation, the perfect location here in Wales to reconnect with yourself or a loved one. Don’t just take our word for it, read the many customer testimonials who will agree with us!
“A perfect setting for complete relaxation and a break from everyday life! Limited phone reception and no Wi-Fi makes it a great place to escape the hype.
Fantastic countryside surroundings with not a soul in sight. Treehouse itself was astounding in every way. It wouldn’t matter what the weather was doing if you were staying here because it has everything needed for an ultimate break”
– Hannah Snape
Here are our top ideas to make your treehouse stay the ultimate relaxation retreat:
Book a treatment
A trip to a spa is always considered a relaxing retreat. Well bring the spa to your treehouse. You can book a whole wealth of treatments with our local therapist Janie. Who will bring the treatments to you. Choose from a massage, facial, manicure or pedicure, the list goes on. See the full list of treatments here.
Try Some Yoga
If you are planning to stay over a weekend here at Squirrels Nest, you could try a yoga class with our local teacher May.
Yoga combines physical poses, controlled breathing, and meditation or relaxation to help the mind and body. It can help to reduce stress, lower blood pressure and lower your heart rate.
Our treehouses offer the most amazing backdrop for a yoga class. With stunning views, privacy, seclusion and peace and quiet.
With our busy lifestyles, many people are turning to meditation to try and keep balanced and feel less stressed. It is becoming much more popular and there is a wealth of information out there about it, how to do it and apps to help you practice.
Our secluded treehouses offer the perfect setting. With few distractions due to the private location, the peace and quiet and the beautiful scenery. You may find yourself meditating without even realising you are even doing it!
Meditation is simply the art of focusing the mind on a particular object, thought, or activity. To train attention, awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state. This does not mean you need to sit on the floor cross legged with your fingers held together rested on your knees. It is simply learning how to switch off our mind and achieve inner calm. So many of our guests tell us this is so easy to do during a stay at our relaxation retreat.
Being active has a whole range of benefits for our health and mental well-being. Undertaking that activity within nature just enhances those benefits further. Our site sits beside a 900-acre open hill. So there is plenty of walking right on the doorstep should you fancy a stroll in nature or a hike to blow away the cobwebs! Many guests have enjoyed venturing to the highest point with a picnic or a glass of something bubbly! There are also plenty of stunning walking spots further afield. Such as the Offa’s Dyke Path or Elan Valley. We provide OS Maps in our treehouses so you can plan your days with ease.
Dark Skies and Stargazing
Another great way to slow down, reflect and feel closer to nature is to lay under the stars. How often do you pause to look up into the night sky? Wales has some of the best dark sky spots in the UK. These are locations where light pollution is at its lowest. Our private outdoor decking areas and outdoor hot tubs provide the perfect spot for stargazing. Or visit one of the dark sky parks locally.
Outdoor Hot Tub
What relaxation retreat isn’t complete without an outdoor hot tub? All of our luxury treehouses here at Squirrels Nest enjoy outdoor hot tubs with stunning views. Immerse yourself in the sounds of nature, the peace and tranquillity, the bubbles! The ultimate in relaxation, no matter what the weather!
Treat yourself, escape the daily hustle and bustle and book a stay at our relaxation retreat in Wales. We look forward to welcoming you soon to Squirrels Nest Treehouse Retreat.
