Wild Wool in Wales
with Bristol Ivy


Join us in Wales for a Wild and Woolly Retreat with Bristol Ivy! Not only will we be Knitting Outside the Box, we will be thinking and living outside of it as well! Accommodations will be rustic as we experience "Glamping" - a comfortable and rather luxurious type of camping! Although some really cool dome tents are available for the more adventurous among you, most accommodations will be in minimalist cabins with fantastic outdoor spaces, and a big old luxurious farmhouse to gather in if the weather turns. Swimsuits are recommended for either braving the Irish Sea or for indulging in sauna life! In addition to typical sightseeing, involving castles, gardens, cathedrals and museums, we will explore the quieter side of Wales - with visits to farms producing amazing organic wool, remote chapels, seaside villages, and walks along the wild coastal paths to remote beaches. Our dining experiences will also be extraordinary - sometimes catered with local produce at our Fforest Farm, sometimes stopping at local eateries along our way - including a Pizzatipi! Come walk on the wooly wild side!

When: May 16 - 24, 2022

Scholarship Fund

At Rowan Tree Travel, we strongly believe that travel feeds the soul, fires the imagination and creates important connections between people. When we say knitting the world together one trip at a time, we really mean it. In an effort to bring the experiences of travel to an ever-widening community, we have created a scholarship fund. Its aim is to offset the economic and logistical obstacles faced by many in the creative community. Our scholarship fund will bridge the gap between those who want to travel but don’t have the means, and those who do and are enthusiastic about helping others reach their dreams. Join us in making the adventure of travel accessible to all, won’t you?
