If you’re looking for a secluded break with nothing but the sound of the river at night to keep you company then this little hut is perfect.

Perched on the edge of the river, this charming cabin is the perfect year-round retreat. Fully insulated and with a log stove, hot shower and wooden sauna the cabin is the perfect bolthole no matter what the weather outside is doing.

Everything you need for a secluded escape from the world. Just relax, unwind, sit by the fire, walk in the hills, and be.

The space
You could not get closer to a river without swimming. This cabin sits on the very edge of the Gwydol river and is surrounded by wild Welsh Countryside and wetland marches.

Inside the cabin, the greatest thought has been given to every detail, with beautifully handmade wooden furniture and bespoke, quirky furnishings. If you like wood, water, fires, and peace and quiet then you will love this space. Located on our four acre property far from any other houses, the Riverside Cabin has its own private outdoor spaces and all the wares inside to feel wonderfully self-sufficient.

The cabin is light, spacious, and uniquely hand crafted by us in our own natural style. There is a comfy king size bed and slick fold-out double sofa bed, ideal for families with children, or friends happy to share the one sleeping space.

A cosy wood burning stove provides great warmth in the winter months, and there is gas-powered hot water on tap, both in the kitchen and in the shower.
The toilet and hot shower are attached to the side of the cabin.

Surrounding hills and trees form the perfect backdrop to this unique riverside retreat.

Where you’ll be

Abercegir, Wales, United Kingdom

If you want a holiday where you can escape life's hustle and bustle then Mid-Wales is just the place.

We are situated away from it all in the heart picturesque welsh countryside.

Thirty minutes from foot of Cadair Idris, the beach or the Centre for Alternative Technology, Abercegir is perfectly situated to take in all the attractions that mid-wales has to offer.

If you are into Mountain Biking then there are a number of stunning local rides for all abilities. We are 30 minutes from Coed-y-Brenin, The Climax trail or the Mach Loop. We are keen mountain bikers so `can give you some nice local tips.

The Cabin is right next to the Glyndwr’s Way National Trail, which is a 135km meandering trail though the heart of Wales. So you can leave the cabin and explore the area for miles.

Alternatively you can sit on the decking spotting otters and herons while sipping a G & T or relax in the hammock over the river and enjoy the floating sound of the river flowing under you.
