Wellness Retreats

For when you just need to ditch the tech, turn off your smartphone and reconnect with nature. At The Forge you can 'just be'. To give you a helping hand, we offer stargazing, mindfulness and wellbeing experiences. Check out our upcoming Wild Wellness Retreat here.

Trail Running and Hiking

We've got lots of stunning routes in the area, many of which you can start straight from The Forge. We've created these helpful downloadable maps for our two favourite walks: Caer Drewyn hill fort and The Grouse pub walk. You can also find more local routes here.
