Caban Coch

Last cache: 16:29:42, Wednesday 22 October 2014

Beudy Banc – Machynlleth

  • Cabin for 2 from £80 per night

    1 Double

Suitable for children of all ages

Pets welcome

Children are welcome although there is only the double bed. Dogs may be brought as long as they are kept on a lead.

Relax in the quiet Welsh countryside or tear up and down it on miles of custom built bike trails. The choice is yours in this great cabin.

The Caban, artfully crafted by its owner from an old hay trailer, is a great escape tucked away in the hills of Wales. Inside there's an eclectic mix of vintage finds punctuated with homespun soft furnishing that results in a cosy retreat full of character and light from its large windows. Outside are miles of bike trails, some of them right to your front door, and a wealth of lovely countryside to explore.

In the main living area you have a sofa which looks out onto the surrounding woodland glade and the backdrop of the Cambrian Mountain Range. There's a wood burning stove together with a kitchen/dining area with a full-sized cooker, sink and storage.
The sleeping area and the wet room with the shower are just off the main space and here you'll find the king-sized sleeping platform, low slung for resting your tired limbs.

Our guests say...

"We had a fantastic time at Caban Coch, and we were actually pleased when the rain came bucketing down on the second day, forcing us to stay inside and watch the storm with hot chocolates. The dog and cat who roam about freely were a lovely, friendly surprise and watching the pair of red kites (at least I think that's what they were) soaring around the valley was incredible.  The accommodation itself was all fantastic - comfortable, cheerfully decorated and practically laid out. I'd recommend it to any couple looking to escape for a couple of days."

"we absolutely loved our stay, it was idyllic. The owners were friendly and helpful. The cabin was quirky and felt tailor made for us. The views were stunning, we could have sat and enjoyed them all day."

Jacqui

"We absolutly loved our stay. Everything was so well thought out and well made. The setting was idyllic and so peaceful. We were so happy we wished we could have stayed longer! We even made a friend in the farm's sheepdog, Moss."

Sarah

"The caban was lovely and in a beautiful setting and very peaceful. Mother Nature threw everything at it though which limited our activities somewhat. Caban and location was great, log burner was better than having a TV and it was so relaxing and peaceful, the weather was awful!"

Chris

"Amazing stay - pictures on the website do not quite do the cabin justice. When there, you feel very privileged to be in such a quiet, secluded, special place.  Very good value - and why leave your beautiful cabin for some restaurant when you can cook a lovely meal - inside or out - and this saves a fortune, if that is what you want."

Steven

"We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at Caban Coch, only wished we'd have booked to stay for another night! We (including our dog) were definitely not ready to go home! It was instantly relaxing and the caban was so cosy with all the amenities needed with beautiful surrounding views."

Jaime

"The most enjoyable holiday we have had in a long time. Location, peace and quiet and no light pollution, the stars at night were absolutely amazing."

"It was Blissful! Perfect place to go and escape."

Carolyn

"We loved our stay in Caban Coch, could have stayed much longer than 2 nights. It was beautiful countryside, completely silent and very cosy to be tucked up in front of the log burner at night. Lots of sheep, a cat and a dog and no other people for 3 days. Just what we wanted :)"

Faye

"We very much enjoyed our stay, uninterrupted bliss. Best thing about our stay was the seclusion of being in the forest with a log fire to keep us warm. Worst part was leaving to return to noisy London."

Angharad

"Journey wasn't too far from home, very secluded and private.  Kitted out beautifully, bed really comfy, snug, warm, wonderful, owners lovely and welcoming, can't say a bad word about it. Best thing was having no tv which meant you had a proper conversation! Worst thing? Nah."

"We enjoyed our stay at Caban Coch and it was in such a beautiful and peaceful location. My husband loved being able to get on his mountain bike and explore the trails from the cabin without having to get in a car and drive somewhere. I also really loved the quirky style of the way in which the cabin is decorated."

Charlotte

"It is the nicest holiday we have had in a while.  The cabin was so artfully decorated with vintage nostalgia and was very cosy, compact and well planned.  The windows were large and the doors opened right up giving a light and airy feel so in the summer it can be opened and in winter the lovely burner would keep it really cosy. I would recommend Caban Coch to anybody loving the simple vintage lifestyle and I have gone home with lots of lovely ideas. The couple who own the property were extremely helpful and let you have the privacy of the cabin but were there if you needed them at their farm house. It was nice to book somewhere looking so nice on the website to find it even better on arrival. There was nothing I could say bad about our stay. Only that we wish we could have stayed longer!!"

Sarah

"The cabin was lovely and toasty, isolated enough to make it feel like there was nobody else around, however there was plenty of opportunity for walking, cycling and exploring."

08/04/2013

Fiona

"One word describes our stay at Caban Coach - epic! We chose the location initially to try the local mountain bike routes and weren't disappointed. The highest parts of Mach 2/3 were snow covered and the wind so strong at one point I was blown off my bike! However, knowing that Caban Coch was waiting for us at the end of each day made it all seem easier. A beer on the decking followed by watching the sunset from the sofa in front of the wood burner was bliss. The cabin was well equipped and cosy, with never ending hot water, amazing views and a comfy bed. Did we enjoy our stay? Absolutely!"

01/04/2013

Gemma

"Our stay at Caban Coch was amazing. The Cabin was small but perfectly formed, with every detail thought of down to the welcome cakes and logs for the fire. The views were amazing, and when we sat in front of the fire in the evening we could see the sun setting over the hills - bliss. There was nothing bad about our stay - only that we couldn't stay longer! The best thing was the secluded location with fantastic views. The cabin was so cosy and welcoming - great after a day out on the hills. The location was perfect as well - 20mins to the sea side and 5 mins to the hills, what more could we possible want!?"

Hannah

"Loved the cabin; it had all the comforts of home. A great touch was the cake our hosts left out for our arrival and the cabin has a lovely wood burning stove to set the mood. We went for a little bike ride around the local area; the hills are impressive but the view was well worth the effort. We gave that up after a few hours however to lounge around by the camp fire instead. The location is private and gives you a lovely view of the farm further down the valley so you don't feel entirely cut off.The highlight of the trip for me was the night sky! I have never seen so many stars it was absolutely breath-taking and I was pleased to see a sketch-book and quite a few paper back novels to keep me entertained during the rainy days. I would recommend this cabin in any weather; it's lovely to sit out on the deck in the sun and even better to snuggle up next to the fire and look out of the big French doors at the rainy landscape. The price is competitive and great value and if your looking for a romantic retreat away from the city, this is the place for you!"

"One of the best breaks my partner and I had had in a long time! I had booked Caban Coch as a surprise getaway for my partner and I after he decided to pop the question and ask me to marry him. He didn't know where we were going until we pulled up at the cabin. He had an ear to ear grin on his face! The location was absolutely beautiful even in the rain. It's hidden well off the beaten track down a secluded dirt driveway in a quiet valley surrounded by the tallest trees. Once inside the cabin we were greeted by lovely Welsh cakes, a wood burning stove and a unique and quirky decor style which included floral sofas and all sorts of random objects adorning the walls. A lovely touch was all of the drawings and paintings created by previous guests which the owners had pinned to the walls. It was lovely to be able to catch a glimpse of how others had viewed their time at the Cabin. All power was supplied by gas cylinders and the cabin was heated by a wood burning stove. The toilet was a charming Eco-friendly compost toilet and the shower was lovely and warm, which was always a welcoming sight after a long day of walking in the Welsh hills! There were lots of wonderful hiking suggestions left by the owners of Caban Coch and plenty more suggestions in the guest book. In the evenings we built a camp fire outside and sat on the porch of the cabin watching the stars and eating roasted marshmallows and sausages. On the rainier evenings we huddled up on the cozy sofa and watched the log burner roar whilst sipping wine and listening to the radio. All in all, this was the perfect romantic getaway. Far from the hustle of London life that both my partner and I are so accustomed to. It was lovely to go to bed in a pitch dark room and to wake up to the sound of bird song and sheep bleating in the distance. I would recommend Caban Coch to anybody looking to escape the rat run for a few days and I will guarantee you that you will never want to leave! Thank you so much Canopy and Stars for finding us such an amazing holiday stay and thank you to the owners of Caban Coch for allowing us to share a little slice of your Welsh Heaven!"

"The coch was wonderful- secluded and quiet and everything we wanted from our holiday accommodation. The interior was amazing- we could tell that a lot of work had gone in to making the cabin just perfect."

24/02/2013

Katherine

"We really enjoyed our stay. The Caban is situated very peacefully in a valley. The sounds of the stream coming down the mountain, which runs just past the Caban, is all you can hear. That, and the odd bleat of a sheep. The Caban was clean, tidy and beautifully designed. We had some amazing runs along the mountain biking trails. The scenery is stunning and the maps provided are clear. Next best was flopping down for a cup of tea on the comfy sofa."

Barbara

"It exceeded expectations. The cabin had all we needed and the views were spectacular. We saw the Milky Way for the first time in years."

"Two days of peace, with fantastic views. Caban Coch was a little piece of Welsh Heaven."

J. & S. McCarthy

"We had a great time. The cabin was so lovely and cosy. It had everything we needed under one roof. Great location too."

13/11/2012

Ruth

"Absolutely amazing stay. Well thought out cabin, maximising a very limited space. Was very warm and snug and a stepping stone away from some of the most amazing walks you'll do in the UK. Pictures do not do the Cabin or the surroundings enough justice. It really is a slice of heaven."

11/11/2012

David

"It was absolutely perfect. You know how you pour over pictures before you go, then worry it wasn't going to be as good as it looked? Well this was - utterly perfect in every way."

09/11/2012

Jennifer

"Fantastic. Very high quality accommodation. Perfect for a retreat."

30/10/2012

Tom

"The cabin was delightful and we were sorry to have to leave at the end of our stay! The pictures on the website delivered. The quality of the cabin fittings etc was superb, the views to die for, and the peace and quiet marvelous (we appeared to be the only people at the site). Considering the quality of the fixtures (including an extremely comfortable bed and quality pure cotton bedlinen), the place was good value for money. Hot water was plentiful, as required. We would definitely like to return when finances permit!"

15/08/2012

Ginny

"We absolutely loved our stay! The cabin, the scenery, the weather, everything was far beyond anything we were hoping for! It was exceptional! The cabin itself was, in my opinion, the best thing about our stay. It is such a unique and special place that you cannot help but feel truly happy in. The worst thing was only really that we weren't able to stay longer. I would definitely recommend staying for 3 or more nights. 2 just didn't feel like long enough!"

03/08/2012

Polly

"The stay was wonderful - very quiet and peaceful so exactly what we were after. The cabin itself was well thought out, very clean and extremely quirky!"

31/07/2012

Joanna

"This was a great little cabin to stay in. Quirky decoration, homely feel, well organised space! So much so, that I think I am going to copy some ideas!  Lovely feeling of freedom and space which was just the ticket after a stressful few months."

05/07/2012

Monica

"We loved it - most fantastic spot and beautifully kitted out. Lots of useful information on places to go - we will definitely go back at some point."

30/06/2012

Susanna

"It was fantastic, the caban was sooo much nicer than I expected, didn't realise it was so new.  The location in terms of the views from the caban were really lovely, it was so quiet.  The caban itself although small, didn't feel like it as it was so well equipped and well laid out.  Very comfortable.  The little touches, the quirky fixtures & fittings really made it special."

19/06/2012

Hilary

"It was everything we expected with the added bonus of it being more remote and peaceful than we could have hoped for. We didn't see anyone during our first three days.  It is really private, picturesque and relaxing."

23/05/2012

Oliver

"It was fantastic, a lovely relaxing few days in the country. The cabin was perfect - cosy, quirky, and practical. It was decorated with real charm, care and attention to detail. It had everything we needed, plus more (an ipod dock! an OS map! a watercolour set!). The hot water was a pleasant surprise. The setting was beautiful, with gorgeous views from the window, and plenty to do in the local area. I'd recommend this for anyone looking for a relaxing, romantic getaway in a beautiful, quiet location."

11/04/2012

Stephen

"Loved our stay at the cabin and Ceri and Dafydd did their best to make sure we were looked after without being around too much either so we could fully appreciate the remoteness of the location. The mountain bike routes that Dafydd mapped out and left details of for the cabin were great and Ceri's style throughout the the cabin was colourful and inspiring. The best thing for us was the location and the mountain bike routes that our hosts had created for us across farm land and throughout the valley, which gave us a real feeling of escape - so nice to get off the OS national routes and feel really alone."

"Thankyou very much for the flowers, champagne and cake for my birthday! A lovely welcome and much appreciated - delicious cake! We would love to come back when the sun is shining."

"Simply the best break ever. So cosy. So remote. Full on rest & relaxation (plus two fantastic mountain bike rides!) Thanks Daf & Ceri"

Nada & Phil

"The cabin is so cosy with its quirky décor & log burner & the location is stunning. We thoroughly enjoyed our walks over the surrounding hills & would love to come back again as this is the perfect weekend escape from busy city life."
