RETREAT centre

A Centre where East meets West, North meets South and Spirit meets Matter

Tan-y-Garth Hall Retreat is a centre for the study, research, teaching and dissemination of spiritual, psychological, scientific and creative knowledge, in an open and inclusive environment. It aims to provide people with practical opportunities to explore and apply such works to improving spiritual and physical well-being.

The Hall opened in 1972 as Britain's first permanent Yoga centre teaching  both eastern and western traditions. This remains at our core  today.

The building itself is a grade II listed Arts & Crafts country house set in 13 acres of woodland with excellent views of the beautiful Ceiriog Valley near Llangollen in North Wales. Located in a commanding position over the valley it lies twenty miles south of Chester, eight miles north of Oswestry, just over the border into North Wales.


It is easily accessible from the M6 and M56 motorways via the A5 and A483, thus making it ideally situated for its role as a peaceful retreat away from the stresses of urban life. Although relatively remote, it is easily accessible by road and rail from Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and their airports.Traveling time from London by train is typically 2 hours 48 minutes via Chester.

We are owned by a membership run charity called the International Hermeneutic Society
