Bespoke Craft holidays in Wales

Would you love to have loads of fun on your own personal creative holiday especially for you, or for you and your friends? Well you can with Little Pentre Creative Retreats!

Leaning great techniques for a choice of subjects, textured wet felting, beginner's and freeform crochet, beginner's handspun yarn, art yarns, wild carding fiber, handspun accessories, jewellery making, recycled cards, and woodland weaving. You choose your subject and Lea will send you a selection of projects to choose from.

I love to help people to find their own creative flow, working with colour, tone, contrast, and texture, with full support to create functional designs, so you can have fun crafting your own beautiful one of a kind creations to take home and enjoy, and building your confidence to be more creative with your projects.

For most of my workshops and courses you don't need any artistic or creative experience at all, most of my workshops are created so that anyone can do them. Or if you are already experienced in crafts and need a new project, or if you always work with patterns and would love to work more creatively.

Staying here at Little Pentre Retreats you will be surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, but still only a few minutes drive down the road to the quaint and artistic little town of Montgomery.

Lea's craft studio is a rustic cedar cabin in Little Pentre Retreats gardens, with views accross the valley, with friendly chickens and runner ducks roaming free. The craft studio is a very inspiring place to work, with gorgeous supplies for the workshops, a colourful wooly paradise that will inspire any craft lover. The space is surrounded by an exciting, eclectic collection of examples of Lea's textile art and fiber art supplies.

The B&B rooms are in a charming old farm cottage, with rustic beams, relaxing natural decor, and a wood burner for cosy evenings by  a crackling log fire. The food and drinks are 100% organic, local where possible, and prepared from scratch. There is also an infrared sauna, massages and therapies can be prebooked for your stay if you wish, there are two large countryside gardens, perfect views of the stunning sunsets across the valley, and a campfire circle for evenings under the stars.

There is glamping available in the gypsy caravan, and the eco cabin will be available to book from Autumn onwards, there are a few camping spots around the land here too.

If you are local to Montgomery and would rather come as a day visitor, you can also book your own creative courses here with Lea, either one to one sessions or your own personal group sessions, same as above but without the accomodation.

Little Pentre is also great if you would like a lovely crafty hen weekend with friends in the countryside.

*One to one sessions ~ £20 per hour plus materials if needed (you can book as many hours as you'd like, or just 1 - 2 hours to give it a try)
