Spiritual Retreats

With its deep spiritual traditions, this part of Pembrokeshire is ideally suited to those seeking a spiritual retreat.

We have our own uniquely spiritual roots here at Asheston Eco Barns. Our original name was Trefasser, which means Asser’s townland in Welsh. It’s likely that our particular Asser was one of Wales’ most important holymen, who started out his religious life as a monk in St. Davids.

He later became Bishop Asser of Sherbourne and is widely remembered today for his work with the Anglo-Saxon king of Wessex, King Alfred.

Pilgrim paths wind their way through the ancient landscape, on their way to the ancient centre of Celtic Christianity at St. Davids, and nearby Newgale was once the homeplace of St. Caradog, or Caradog Fynach.

Even the sea resonates with names from the ancient past, with St. Bride’s Bay probably taking its name from St. Bridget of Kildare.

While you’re here we can even arrange a tour of local holy wells and churches, if you’re interested.

We work with both Christian and non-Christian groups looking for a special place for peaceful and secluded spiritual reflection and learning.
