The River Bed at Dolfor offers a unique kind of sanctuary from day to day life.

It is a romantic fishing/writers hut with whitewashed walls and a deliciously comfortable bed entwined in fairy lights looking straight onto the river.

Our Retreat cabin

There are books and games, blankets and free fair trade organic tea, coffee and hot chocolate. It is also like camping; There is no heating (we bring you amazing hot water bottles at dusk), the hot shower is outside (overlooking the river and attached to an ancient ash) the loo is a compost one, the kitchen is outside under canvas awnings and all cooking is on an open fire (firewood provided).

We think it combines the best of both worlds – the necessity of genuine outdoor living, combined with the luxury of waking in the morning to a basket containing a pot of freshly ground coffee and warm home made bread! There is birdsong, butterflies, a wildflower meadow, walks from the doorstep, a hammock to sway in, nothing to DO.

It is situated at the bottom of our wild and overgrown garden in a little woodland glade which is exclusively yours while you are with us.

We take all our bookings through Airbnb. But please do contact us if you have any queries.


"I have been receiving weekly massage from Jessie to help with the symptoms of Motor Neurone Disease and have found it to be very beneficial. Jessie inspires great confidence as she not only has a thorough knowledge of anatomy but she does her own research into my condition so that I get the best out of each massage. My movement is now very restricted so having muscles worked into is a great way to keep them feeling active and alive and I always feel the benefit afterwards as well as enjoying the treatment and the company."

Michael, Retired Engineer

"As soon as you are in Jessie’s presence you feel well cared for and her massages are beautiful! Jessie is very emotionally aware and genuinely cares for you, ensuring you get the best out of your treatment.  I leave feeling energised and in a far better head space, I highly recommend!"

Julie, Full Time Mum to 2

"Utterly relaxing as well as stimulating! Afterwards in my bath I rolled over onto my front and blew bubbles in the water – something I haven’t done since childhood…such a playful feeling was an unexpected bonus!"

Pippa, Education Consultant

"Massage with Jess gives me a safe place to relax, feel held, nourished and cared for in many different circumstances. I have worked through physical symptoms such as painful shoulders and carpal tunnel with her, found myself uplifted after she has worked deeply on long held areas of tension and have even found myself spontaneously crying mid massage as something ‘released’. It felt safe to express myself and Jess’s calm acceptance left me feeling looked after and comfortable after which I went home and slept better than I had done in ages."

"My partner bought me an hour massage with Jess as a birthday gift. It was a full body massage aimed at relaxation. My job involves a lot of physical work, lifting, carrying & walking and the muscles get tight and knotted. After the massage I found all muscular tension had been released and I had the best night's sleep for a long while. I would highly recommend Jess to anyone as a massage therapist."
