Beacons Creative Retreats At Gliffaes Hotel, 7th – 9th February 2020

February can be such an odd month. January’s resolutions are long since broken and the promise of spring seems a long time away. The good news is that the remaining days of winter are the perfect time to do something completely different!

Gliffaes Country Hotel and Beacons Creative Retreats have partnered up to offer you a space to explore your artistic, literary and creative talents. Here you can try your hand at a number of different creative and inspiring workshops, including leatherwork, basketmaking, screen printing, honing your writing skills, and many more. We have selected inspiring after-dinner speakers to entertain and inform you. In addition you will learn cooking skills with Gliffaes chef Karl Cheetham, get to find out exactly how to prepare your book or novel for publication, and even learn the arts of botanical illustration! Your booking will include 3 days and 2 nights at Gliffaes, all food and refreshments, workshops of your choice and lots more surprises. For full details of all the workshops and how to book, browse the pages here.

Where will I be staying?

The weekend retreat and all the workshops will be taking place in the Gliffaes Hotel, a family run, four star country house hotel situated in 33 acres of mature woodland and gardens above the river Usk. About 45 minutes from the Severn Bridge at the eastern edge of the Brecon Beacons and close to the market town of Crickhowell. The hotel has plenty of indoor and outdoor space for all the workshops on offer and you will be very comfortable in one of the 23 individually decorated rooms. The hotel has five types of rooms priced according to size and many of them can be twinned which makes sharing with a friend over the weekend possible.

The rates quoted below include all your meals from tea on Friday afternoon to lunch Sunday as well as all the workshops you wish to attend over the weekend.
