Ty Brethyn is located in the grounds of a housing co-operative, situated in a secluded quiet valley, down a track from the road, so there's no traffic noise and it's away from other properties. The Retreat Space is in separate building not overlooked by the community, above a garage with its own entrance and lovely views, adjacent to an occasionally used workshop. There is a space outside where you can sit. There may be the sounds of children playing and you might see people out gardening, but it's pretty quiet.
The community consists of five households with two cats, chickens and two sheep. We have five acres of land, including a stream, gardens, fields and woodland. Llangollen town centre is a 15 minute walk down the hill and has a full range of shops.
There is a Co-op, an Aldi, a green grocer, deli, excellent whole food shop and lots more.
Here's a description of what the Retreat Space provides and some suggestions of things you might like to bring:
There is a double bed with bedding and bed linen; a shrine with rupa, candles, incense, lighter, vase, meditation cushions, mat and blankets; a sofa; table and chairs; fully equipped kitchen with cooker, fridge, kettle, toaster, tea towels; cleaning equipment; electric oil radiator; toilet paper. There is a kitchen sink with cold water only, but no bathroom - there's a compost toilet outside. There's a yoga mat and plenty of space indoors and out for yoga. You can have access to a washing machine if needed.
You will need to bring your own towels and toiletries, food and drink.
There are lovely places to walk around Ty Brethyn and we provide a local map and books about walks - wellies or waterproof shoes are advisable, especially in wet weather.
If you'd like to borrow any dharma books, just let us know.
