Hay-on-Wye accommodation

Luxe-lodges on the Welsh Borders

Set among woodland and meadow, Cynefin Retreats is an immersive destination offering an incredible indoor-outdoor getaway experience.

Designed with families in mind, our trio of hand-crafted lodges offer generosity of space and connection with nature, whilst only three miles from the historic market town of Hay-on-Wye.

Each lodge sleeps up to 5 + infant, and four legged friends are of course welcome too.

 

Hay-on-Wye accommodation
Cynefin (pronounced kin-ev-in) is a Welsh word with no direct English translation, meaning ‘rooted in place’, somewhere we instinctively belong.

Our vision was to create aesthetically pleasing spaces, enabling design-led parents to enjoy beautiful family holidays together, without compromising on style.

Yet with family life, we know practicality is paramount too. Each lodge is kitted out with stair gates, high chairs, kids crockery, and baby bjorn travel cots, and with blackout blinds in all bedrooms, we hope to enable a restful slumber for all.

Parents can while away their afternoons reclining in Cane-line designer outdoor furniture, while kids make memories discovering our hidden den under the stairs, or fairy-seeking in the meadow and woodland.

Each lodge features two spacious bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, each with the option of either a super king size bed or twins. The family bathroom has a ginormous standalone bath and a separate waterfall shower.

From the open plan kitchen, living and dining room you look out through expansive glass doors to a private decking with your own hot tub, and beyond to the spacious terrace with fire pit and BBQ grill.

For the adults

Wake up in your super king size bed, nestled into cloud-like feather duvet and pillows. Enjoy the ease of our electric blinds as you invite countryside views into the room.

Pop open the bubbles and enjoy from your luxury leather-lined hot tub.

Peruse our selection of cookbooks and rustle up a feast over the firepit using our high-quality cast iron cookware.

Add a soundtrack to your stay using the fabulous Marshall speaker, or open up the windows and doors and let the birds do the singing.

“The Wonderful World of Cynefin”

Booked this for my girlfriend’s birthday on a whim after liking the look of the cabins, the reality was far better than expected, it was wonderful, beautifully designed and lovely to stay in. The hot tub was excellent and the view in the morning was sensational, I hope to be back.

“Absolutely amazing minibreak”

We had a fantastic time at the retreat, we were lovely and cosy and had more than everything we needed. The dog loved it too. Will definitely be visiting again. My advice is to just book as you will LOVE it! Perfect place to de-stress.
