A Cambrian mountain retreat in a warm octagonal cabin, with an amazing spring-fed hot tub nearby! Relax in rural comfort...

Deep in the lush Cambrian mountains you'll find a cabin with an interior inspired by Fiona and Tim's passion for colour and nature. The interior, full of beautiful fabrics, cushions and wood, feels rich and warm; the wood-burner makes it cosy all year round. The Cabin was made by local craftsmen who worked to Fiona's brief: to create an elegant, simple space, if an octagonal timber structure can be simple... to create somewhere where guests can relax, cook outside and in, sit under cover on a veranda when the weather is stormy – and when it gets cold, be snug inside.

The idea was to craft a light and airy space in the grounds of Tim & Fiona's house, made from sustainably sourced materials and powered by electricity from the stream above.The Cabin has a roomy but comfortable feel with the space cleverly used. The bed, a smallish double, swings down from the wall and a kitchen and bathroom are tucked into the corners. The large windows make you feel immersed in the glorious countryside all around and make The Cabin a wonderful den from which to explore this beautiful part of Wales.

The wood fired hot tub nearby is the perfect place to soak up the views! The 'cabana' hut next door is your changing room, made of local oak and larch. Detailed instructions are provided for you to fire up the tub for yourself, whenever you like. 

Our guests say...

A relaxing haven in the wild. No wifi, no signal and no TV makes it the most relaxing place to get away from life's everyday stresses and noise.



I planned this as a birthday surprise for my boyfriend and he absolutely loved it! It was a well needed break for me too, of course!



It was a lovely setting, peaceful and relaxing. Beautiful scenery, walks all around. It had all of the facilities we required.



A wonderful couple of days, we both absolutely loved this wee haven! Despite the rain and wind we walked over 30 miles in 2 days and enjoyed relaxing in the peaceful ambience and gorgeous setting of the cabin in the evenings. We loved adventuring and exploring the local area - from jumping over waterfalls to crawling through caves - and we absolutely adored the tonic of wildness. We did not see a single person on our walks, only emphasising the secludedness of the area. The night sky was breathtaking and we enjoyed a night cap on the veranda under the stars each night to make the most of the dark, clear nights. Waking up to birdsong and the tranquil sound of the waterfall  and looking across the valley to see Venus shining brightly each morning was truly magical! We left the cabin reluctantly but feeling totally rejuvenated and with smiles on our faces. Thank you for such a memorable and relaxing break! Shaun and Natalie. 



It was wonderful. Despite the fact that it rained all weekend, the cabin was the perfect place to be. Very cosy, well equipped with games and books, extremely comfortable bed, plenty of wood for the fire and the hot tub was just amazing. We had fun chopping wood, playing on the rope swing and getting the hot tub ready and we walked to the Royal Oak pub for dinner on the Friday night and the staff there were lovely. Fiona was very friendly and extremely helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed every second of our stay and would love to come back in summer..



It was a wonderfully relaxing long weekend for my husband's 30th birthday! The cabin was warm and cosy even in bad weather and the hot tub was amazing!!



Absolutely incredible. I want to go back already!! Peaceful, tranquil...everything you could ask for. Perfect stay!



Lovely romantic hideaway in deep Wales. We brought our own food and sat in front of the fire for our meals, while the hot tub warmed up. Cycled out to the beach the next day over rolling hills and beautiful countryside.

We had a lovely couple of days and thought it was a wonderful location.



Very quiet and restful, the surroundings are beautiful. The hot tub was brilliant.



We had a lovely short break in this cosy cabin in Wales, enjoying the peace and quiet, lovely scenery and each others' company. If we had had more time there we would have loved to have used the hot tub but although we enjoyed our time there, we went out in the daytime and didn't stay at the Cabin for the 5 hours indicated on the instructions that it would take to heat up.



First leg of our honeymoon, 1 year on...loved the hot tub and bubbles on arrival, cabin is an incredible space, very well designed and so practical, quite remote which was lovely for us


James & Sarah

Our stay was as a result of being given a gift voucher. It proved very successful - we loved the Cabin and the location.



Really lovely stay - beautiful cabin, friendly hosts, and fab scenery!



Within 30 mins of arrival, we were in the hot tub, relaxing after a 3 and a half hour drive! The cabin was great, much bigger inside than expected. It was really cosy, cleverly designed, and full of well thought out touches. We really relaxed the 2 nights we stayed at the cabin, and we'll never forget star gazing whilst drinking champagne in the hot tub.



Took the missus for her birthday. We needed to get away and she'd never seen Wales before. It was wonderful to get away from it all. No tv, no internet, no phones. We just enjoyed each others company. And the out door hot tub of course.



The cabin was magical! We loved every moment. The hot tub was amazing even in -5 in the morning!! The cabin inside was fantastic, it had everything we needed! I took up birdwatching and could have sat at the window for hours!! The garden was beautiful and the walking was grat. We walked along the river and up to the royal oak-amazing pub, beautiful people, great food! We also waked around llyn brianne reservoir starting from the dam, this was beautiful and snowy! The whole experience was exactly what we wanted and can not wait to go back!



"Stay was fantastic, an ideal way to start 2015. In an idyllic setting with nothing to do but enjoy the surroundings and get some much needed R&R"



"We only stayed two nights but it felt like a week.  It helped enormously to turn up during daylight, so we could get our bearings around the cabin and wider area. Fiona, the owner, was welcoming and friendly, checking we were okay but giving us plenty of space too. Our first weekend away from our kids in 10 years - it felt like a honeymoon!"



"Had a great time, lucky with weather, beautiful countryside. Imaginative cabin, beautifully designed."



"The cabin is lovely, and the hosts are nice. There when you need them but otherwise they left us alone."



"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything was wonderful, we relaxed the minute we got there. We used the hot tub and our cabin was very cosy with lovely views. We saw fabulous rainbows which more than made up for the rain."



"The Cabin is beautiful, the surroundings are beautiful, the hot tub is beautiful and the owners are clearly beautiful people.  We loved our stay, it was perfect.  So tranquil and idyllic.  I'd definitely stay again."



"It has to be our most favourite 'close to home' break we've ever had. The cabin was nestled up a tree-lined drive, surrounded by lush fields and sheltered by the mountain. It was comfortable and very idyllic!"



"We had a fantastic time at the Cabin.  We arrived late in the evening and were met by the most beautiful views of the stars and an extremely welcoming host who showed us around the cabin.  The location was amazing, tucked away in the woods and with good walks in pretty much every direction."



"Cabin was very cosy and idyllic location."



"it was amazing. The cabin was simple but with enough nice touches and home comforts to make it feel like luxury. The remoteness and eco living style was perfectly balanced with great facilities so you feel like you are getting back to nature but you don't have to give up your hot showers! the best bit about the trip was how much quality time me and my husband spent together, we really did forget all about work, stress, what day it was even. All that was facilitated by the remoteness of the location, and the simplicity of the cabin. One of the best holidays we've had."



"Loved the tranquil setting, a pub a few minute's walk away, a beautiful designed and decorated cabin with everything you needed to hand. We thought the wind up torches were salt and pepper grinders initially, they were oddly located by the door rather than in the kitchen!"



"Very good. Quiet and relaxing"



"Very enjoyable stay, such easy access to fantastic local walks over the hills. Able to leave the car and just walk if necessary but also some superb drives around. The Cabin continued to surprise as it got ever more cosy as the weekend went on"



"We both really enjoyed our stay. It was incredibly peaceful. There is not just one best thing. I loved that the porch had a cover as we could sit with a hot drink and watch the rain. The close proximity of such beautiful walks and waterfalls. The very friendly pub with great food."



"It was wonderful. The owners had designed the Cabin to the last degree of comfort. Unspoilt views across the Towy Valley. And a zip wire for grown ups to play on!"



"Really enjoyable, perfect for a short visit.  It rained the whole time but this was actually a benefit as it meant we could make use of the lovely wood-burner which made the cabin really cozy. We needed a torch to get to the outside loo at night and it would have been useful to know in advance, but really this is the only thing that could be improved.  We didn't see our hosts at all but found some great places to visit and eat through reading the guest book comments - the local area is lovely and had some great value eateries"



"It was perfect! Fiona, the owner of The Cabin, was friendly and helpful, but also left us to our own devices, which we wanted."



"We loved our stay! It was a very peaceful and beautiful area of somewhere so close to us, yet had never visited."



"We loved our stay at The Cabin, it lived up to my expectations; it was unique, tranquil and in beautiful location.  The Cabin itself was bigger and better than expected.  We had a romantic weekend enjoying the countryside and watching the stars at night.  The Cabin offered that something different!  It felt like a mini adventure!"



"Extremely good, very laid back, and completely in the middle of nowhere, the cabin was very well kitted out with teas and coffees, the hob was great and we brought our own food to cook. At night the stars were incredible."



"The location was wonderful. Had a real sense of seclusion. The decor was amazing and even though it was a chilly Novemeber weekend, we felt really cosy in the cabin with our wood burner. The facilities were excellent, even down to the musical instruments and games. There was no worst part of the stay, everything was amazing. Thank you so much for helping us find the perfect weekend."



"Most of the time, when you book somewhere to stay, you tend to create on image in your head of what it might be like and how nice it will be only to be disappointed on arrival. This was not one of those times! Everything about the place; its location, the cabin itself, the local area, the friendly people, all not only met our expectations but greatly exceeded them. Well done Fiona and Tim for creating such a rural oasis, we cant wait to go back."



"Lovely stay. The cabin was a fantastic building and the location was amazingly picturesque. Good eateries in near proximity. Nice feeling of seclusion."



"Absolutely loved it.  The cabin was gorgeous, so comfy, cosy, well thought out, lots of nice touches like fresh flowers, apple juice.  The location was stunning as was the view out of the window.  Would recommend the cabin to anyone without hesitation."



"We absolutely loved the cabin, and Tim and Fiona went above and beyond to make our weekend unforgettable. The valley is virtually untouched by tourists and the landscape is beautiful. We really loved that we had the option to have a cosy night in by the wood burning stove or walk to the local pub to meet up with locals who quickly became friends. Could not recommend this experience enough, it was only too short!"


Jessica & Dan

"We absolutely loved our stay in The Cabin. The scenery was amazing and we saw loads of wild life. It was so quiet and peaceful...a real get away from it all. We loved sitting by the fire outside, wrapped in blankets and drinking wine!"



“This was a beautiful and inspiring place to stay. We were made very welcome by the owners and then left to our own devices which was just what we wanted. It was wonderful to be able to go for walks straight out of the door in this incredibly unspoilt and rather remote part of Wales. Our 9 year old loved the zip wire and swing.”



“Our expectations were more than exceeded. It was a beautiful location, and the cabin was even more lovely than we’d imagined, and the hosts made it all extra special. Geno said it was the best holiday of his entire life!”
