A planned retreat at this breathtaking place was far beyond what we thought or expected. This is a place of rest, peace and blessing. It is a 'thin place' in the spirit and our group was incredibly blessed. The landscape is quite stunning with wide open vistas all around. A solid hike to a rocky place gives a wide open...

Ffald-y-Brenin retreat, tucked away in the countryside is an idyllic retreat in a stunning setting surrounded by beautiful countryside. A great place to take yourself away for a break and a good chat and time spent with God.

Ffald-y-brenin is a name that people know once they have read the book 'Grace Outpouring' by Roy Godwin. Remarkable things are recorded there and people have been excited about the stories. Now I tend to be a little sceptical about the 'latest thing', but this book had some authenticity about it and having had a picture of the High Cross...

Wonderful dedication to living with God, obedience to his will, welcoming all guests and passers-through. The chapel is beautiful and so are the people here. The Holy Spirit likes it here and has come to stay. You will be blessed.

This is really a special place nestling in amazing countryside. The peaceful, friendly atmosphere is apparent from the minute you enter the building. The gardens and grounds are beautifully maintained and the views breathtaking. However, do not come here just for its geographical situation! There is a spiritual feeling here and if you arrive burdened with life, you are sure...

I have now visited and stayed at Ffald Y Brenin 4 times since June 2014! It's amazing and the sense of Gods peace and presence is tangible and real. If you want time out from hustle bustle and to go for rest and peace then this is the place! It's very basic self catering accommodation, but perfect for what I...

Stayed in a small room with a single bed and great views over Pembrokeshire Cwm Valley. Shared self catering in the common room, very relaxed and friendly guests and some amazing conversations as a result. Whatever you do have time to spend in the chapel at the end of the house in silence and just ask God to meet you...

Some people we met in England hold us about Ffald-y-Brenin, the Christian retreat centre, the day before we planned to drive through north Wales. We changed our plans and stayed in the amazing villages of Fishgard and Goodwich, just about as far south and west at you can go. Despite having no booking, after a phone call, we were welcomed...

“Padern room has its own kitchenette. Upstairs rooms are quieter and have a better view. Single rooms are very small.”

“Selfcatering at Ffald y Brenin in Kentigern suite, and B&B across the valley at Ffynondici. Both great.”

“Don't expect a large room and even a double room may have twin beds But it is all you need and gives a sense of getting back to comfortable basics which we all need in these times. You will lack nothing you really need to survive. !”

“If you are not going as part of a group the the Hermitage is great for 2 people but does not have a full cooker; the flat has family accommodation with a bed settee and built in double and a decent kitchen all in one room with the loo and shower downstairs and the Lodge is on 2 floors with beds for 4 downstairs with a small bathroom, and a bed settee and kitchen upstairs. These are all pretty self contained although the flat may require sharing the bathroom. if you are part of a large group then the rooms vary from single cells through to larger singles which will take a 2nd mattress, double bunks, one twin and one double and bathrooms and toilets are shared. All share the common room which has tables and folding chairs sufficient to seat around 2 dozen.”
