Walden Lodge is a hub of influences and inspiration from Wales to America, with art and craftwork whose subjects include Welsh migration, religion and poetry. The spirit of the American transcendental movement and Thoreau’s classic book ‘Walden’, that reflects on simple living close to nature, inspires the name and spirit of our lodge.
Walden sleeps 4, with two double bedrooms, one with an extra single bunk. The bright studio kitchen has dining for 4 and is fully equipped.
Walden Lodge is located on our 7.5 acre site called 'Tresilian Wood' together with 4 other smaller self catering units. This tranquil coastal setting is for quiet, peaceful holidays. With this in mind there is a minimum age of 16.
There is a cosy space to ‘cwtch up’ beside the wood burner in the colder weather. A spacious bathroom has a large walk-in shower.
Guests enjoy sea views beyond the meadow when sitting on their terrace. This hand-crafted lodge offers a unique stay with notes of Welsh-American connections. Henry David Thoreau was a significant poet and philosopher in the American Transcendental movement. This movement found inspiration in the works of European Romanticism and Coleridge in particular. Thoreau spent two years living in a cabin on the shores of Walden Pond, Massachusetts. This experience provided the foundation for his most famous work ‘Walden; or, Life in the Woods’ – a book that reflects upon simple living in natural surroundings.
