The Forge provides a space for people to relax, unwind and reconnect with nature, by staying in our eco-glamping accommodation and immersing themselves in one of our many courses and events, which we host throughout the year. Founded on the principles of sustainability and rewilding, helping others to rekindle a love and appreciation for the natural world is at the heart of everything we do.
The Forge opened in 2018 with just “three tents in a field”, for people to come and enjoy an introduction to glamping. We soon realised that people were fascinated by our vision to live more sustainably and to restore our beautiful little corner of Wales to its former natural beauty. We also realised that after the global pandemic of 2020, people were desperate for a safe place to be outside with friends and family and needed space to focus on their mental health and wellbeing.
Now more than just a place to stay, The Forge has become a magical place for people from all walks of life to come and enjoy and learn about the benefits of the great outdoors and reconnecting with nature. We offer a whole range of events and courses throughout the year, ranging from family canoe and bushcraft weekends, to restorative wild wellness retreats, plus trail running and wild swimming camps for those seeking a bit more adventure.
We also give all our guests the opportunity to visit our smallholding and learn about our sustainable living projects which include growing our own food, planting native tree species, and restoring our natural wetland areas.
And if you are just looking for a space for you and your nearest and dearest to be together, whilst also socially distancing, you can book the whole site and make it your own for a few days, completely hidden away from the stresses of the modern world, and where you are guaranteed not to see another soul.
