What is The Big Retreat Festival?
The festival takes place over four days every June and combines the vibe of a relaxing retreat with a family festival. There’s plenty to experience in the beautiful setting of Lawrenny Park Estate, set against the stunning backdrop of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Lawrenny may be a small village but The Big Retreat Festival punches well above its weight with easy access to Tenby and the M4 motorway.
The festival is a real smorgasbord of feel-good wonders to delight, refresh and inspire!
Pack your weekend with a broad selection of wellbeing activities and mix it up with some art, meditation workshops, flow yoga, wild swimming, and healthy food. Take some time out to reset your mind, body and soul on the beautiful West Wales coast. By night it's all about the music, as well as a broad selection of good food and drink. The headline acts aren’t to be missed - look out for the full timetable later in the year.
Is this festival suitable for kids?
Yes, this a family orientated festival. Check out the dedicated 'Little Retreaters' area with inspirational learning activities including water slides, talent shows, bug hunts, singing and dancing.
Family tickets include a 4 night camping pitch and a selection of activities. Be sure to book ahead to secure your place.
Where to stay
As well as the festival camping and glamping options, Pembrokeshire has many other places to stay to suit every budget. If you are looking for a family orientated cabin-style woodland lodge, a little retreat in your own private geo-domes with hot tubs or a cosy cottage for two here are some highlights close to the festival field in Kilgetty.
What to do locally
It’s well worth taking advantage of the wealth of wellbeing activities that Pembrokeshire has to offer. Boost your mood with a wander along the coast - rated by the National Geographic magazine as the second best coastline in the World.
It’s also an ideal destination for making memories with your family and friends - don’t miss Folly Farm Adventure Park and a chance to get close to its 750 animals or discover more about local traditions at the The Lovespoon Workshop.
For adventure seekers, head for Llawhaden Castle, a 14th century castle-complex which is great fun for kids. And for foodies and shoppers, Narberth has a wealth of small independent shops, cafe’s and deli’s.
