About the Emerald Vale

An Ancient and Enchanting Wilderness

Located within a secluded off-grid forest valley nestled within Wales’ Brecon Beacons National Park. Located 1200 feet up surrounded by the wild beauty and crystalline waters of the Black Mountains. By UK law the land and wildlife are protected and conserved here. We are close in proximity to what is also known as 'the gateway to Wales', gifting us with easy access to the rest of the park, various sacred sites and the unspoilt magic of the natural world.


The name stems from the glowing green mountains and rolling dragon hills that abundantly emit an emerald ray frequency. Have you ever been somewhere so green and lush that it naturally calms you and you feel at peace? We welcome you into these earthly realms to meditate by the mossy river, commune with the ancient yew tree, bathe in the emerald forest or be part of a guided ceremony among the elven grove. 

Within the Vale lies a rare opportunity to receive nature and a habitat that is wild, pure and untamed. It's here we can feel the echoes of ancient Celtic Britain that at the time would've been predominantly covered in trees and dense forest. The Vale is situated deep within one of the UK’s very few dark sky reserves, away from air and light pollution, EMF's, 5G and at night you are able to see the entire cosmos - a starlit sanctuary that allows you to step back in time.
