About

‘Pantglas imposes no religion or belief – it exists to offer all who come to it relief from agendas and to experience the nurturing company of Nature’

Walking in the Cambrian Mountains on a short holiday, yogins Arjuna and Lynnie fell in love with the 8 acres of organic land known locally as Pantglas (blue- green valley). With an original barn crying out for studio conversion, a beautiful and robust mountain stream perfect for offering hydro-electric power, solar panels already in place and its own well supplying sweet, pure spring water, Arjuna and Lynnie could not resist and 10 months later were signing ownership papers. Today, Pantglas, completely off the national grid stands grounded in its own ability to provide power for its visitors, harnessing energy from its own mountain stream and from the sun. Each year from Spring to Autumn the Pantglas Centre runs Courses and Retreats – please visit the Calendar page – and is also available for private group hire – please visit the Venue Hire page.

Wildlife

With over 2.5 thousand trees, Pantglas provides a safe haven to a wide diversity of wildlife from red kite and buzzard which can be heard calling overhead, to the screech owl whose nocturnal cry can be heard on still, moonlit nights; from colourful woodpecker to swooping swallows and house-martins; from the fox glimpsed in the morning mist to the squirrel making ready its winter store. Pine marten and badger, voles, hares, shrews and field mice call Pantglas home and otter are an occasional visitor from the valley below.

Facilities

Visitors to Pantglas will enjoy the fabulous studio with its wooden floor, huge log burning stove, exposed beams and large picture windows looking out over the valley. The beautifully handcrafted yurts, each with its own carefully chosen site set in either meadow or woodland provide a unique eco-accommodation experience. For yurt dwellers there are modern shower and washroom facilities.  For further details please visit the Yurt page. We have a cosy cottage with a fully equipped kitchen, sitting and dining area, guest bedroom, and a bathroom. Please visit the Cottage page. Pantglas also boasts a large polytunnel which has an array of deep, raised beds where Arjuna and Lynnie grow their own organic fruit, vegetables and salads. Ingredients for meals provided for visitors to Pantglas will of course be picked that day whenever possible!
