The space
Cabin Ishbel is our beautiful wooden chalet in West Wales, which sleeps six people. It is the perfect place to spend a long weekend or a family holiday, nestled in the peaceful Welsh countryside.

A mile from the village of Cenarth in Carmarthenshire, Cabin Ishbel is a cosy peaceful place to spend a long weekend or have a family holiday. It has three bedrooms - a double, a twin, and a bunk room - so can comfortable sleep 6 people. There's even room for another two in the lounge, if you really need it!

Cabin Ishbel is our home-away-from-home, we stay there ourselves several times a year; we even held our wedding party there! The cabin is one of our favourite places to be and we'd love to have you come and visit.

LOCATION

Cabin Ishbel nestles in the trees on the edge of Penlan Holiday Village, a small family-run holiday park of Scandinavian-style lodges in a beautiful woodland setting just outside the village of Cenarth. The park has a small shop, a bar, an outdoor pool (in summer), a playground, and a dog walk meadow.

The cabin is in the heart of rural West Wales at its finest. It's a great launch pad for country walks, and the Pembrokeshire National Park is just 10 miles away. The river Teifi runs through the village, with opportunities to kayak and fish. The nearest beach is 10 miles away, with all the gorgeous secluded beaches of the Ceredigion and Pembs coast lines to choose from.

You're in a rural location, so public transport is limited - the cabin is best reached by car. However, there is an hourly bus service, Mon-Sat only, which will take you between Cenarth and Cardigan, or Cenarth and Carmarthen (the nearest mainline train station).

FACILITIES

The cabin has a well-equipped fitted kitchen, heaters in each room and an electric shower. From the kitchen and deck you can look over the Preseli hills while you have dinner, or a BBQ. The lounge is super cosy, with a stove to help keep the evening chills away.

The cabin is very much a self-service experience - sadly, we will most likely not meet! We will send you a key code, and you can just let yourself in. Our cleaner will have made the beds up for you in advance - just let us know how many people are coming, and which beds you'd like to use. We will also provide one towel per person.

You'll find the kitchen cupboard stocked with tea, coffee, condiments, and some basics such as oil, rice and pasta. But don't forget to visit the shops to stock up on the way.

We choose not to have a tuned-in television, as the cabin is a place to unwind and disconnect from the world. But we have tonnes of DVDs and a good selection of board games! There is no Wifi and mobile phone signal is extremely limited - enjoy the digital detox! If you do need to check in with the outside world, wifi is available in the Penlan Bar or at the nearest pubs around 1 mile away.

Electricity is, unfortunately, on a credit meter. We’ll put the first £5 on, but after that meter cards can be bought from the park office or bar.

The cabin can get quite chilly even in summer; after all, it is a simple wooden building in a forest. The heating is good and lots of blankets are provided, but do bring warm clothes and pyjamas!

Well-behaved dogs with considerate owners are most welcome. We allow one larger dog or two small dogs. Dogs aren’t allowed on the sofas or beds, so you need to bring your own dog bed. Dogs have to kept on leads around the holiday park.

** A note to our lovely previous guests - we used to invite guests to bring their own bed linen, but AirBnB have now made it a requirement that we provide this for all bookings. So Bed Linen and Towels are now included - just be sure to specify how many people are coming to stay. **

Guest access
The entire cabin is yours! Three bedrooms, a large lounge, a kitchen diner, and two decks - one in the sun, and one under the roof. The cabin is on the edges of a beautiful woodland holiday village, which has a walking meadow, a playground, an outdoor pool in the summer, and a small bar and shop.

There is no Wifi available at the cabin, and very little mobile phone signal - embrace the digital detox! Wifi is available at the Penlan Bar and in the local pubs if you really need to connect.

Mobile signal is poor in the area - in particular the O2 network is bad around that area of Wales (guess which network we use?). EE/Orange/Vodafone are better. A scrap of O2 signal can often be found by walking to the top corner of the site (near Cabin 37).

We're Sam & Freya. We live in London, but we've had our little cabin in West Wales for three years, and it's the perfect getaway from city life. We love the area so much, we got married there in April 2013. We hope you'll enjoy staying there too.
