Over the Rainbow Vegetarian Country Retreat

A Secluded Vegetarian & Vegan country house retreat, Cardigan Bay

A restored Georgian mansion tucked away down a long farm track. Three miles from the pristine west Wales coast, nestled amongst acres of woodland and gardens with idyllic views across the rolling Welsh countryside. A warm welcome awaits you at Over the Rainbow.

What do we offer?

You can stay B&B for some well earned time out, or hire the venue exclusively for small group holidays, residential retreats, family celebrations and wedding ceremonies.  Enjoy a relaxed stay in a country house, where you can completely unwind and relax just watching the stars and listening to the silence.

We offer well appointed, sumptuous centrally heated bedroom accommodation including single, double or twin ensuite rooms, with décor reflecting influences of female myths & legends from around the world. Guests also have use of a communal guest lounge / library and large dining room.

We also offer space for retreats and groups. The seclusion and peace of the house lends itself well to retreats, courses and workshops. An inspiring and creative space, practical for movement workshops. An intimate, cosy yet spacious house, homely and practical whilst retaining the quirks of a bygone age.

The retreat is run on ethical and environmentally responsible principles. We use renewable sources for heating, hot water and electricity; we also source much of our produce locally and from our own garden and polytunnels. We are members of Green Key Global, Greentraveller, endorsed by the Vegetarian Society and have been awarded Gold standard by Green Tourism Association.

We also offer a number of events, retreats and themed weekends each year. Check out our Events page, you can also sign up for our e-newsletter to keep up to date with forthcoming events. (Your contact details are kept secureley and never shared them with any third parties. You can un-subscribe at any time.)

Over the Rainbow is open for B&B from early February to the end of November each year. If you are interested in booking a group event or retreat during our closed weeks, please get in touch.
