The Accommodation

Possibly the UK's 'greenest' holiday cottage, this luxury barn conversion is an ideal marriage of sustainable thinking and cool interior design; see extra and larger photos here. You'd be pushed to find a more impressive Welsh location than this "off grid" barn, set in glorious isolation 600 feet above the stunning Dyfi valley in mid Wales. Tremendous views stretch from the sea in the west, to the mountains north and east. Surrounded by nothing but organic farmland and birdsong, this 'eco-barn' will lift the mind and refresh the soul. Sustainability has been at the heart of every decision in the conversion and even the electric is produced on-site using solar power. A mile up your own track! Independent guest reviews. Featured in 'BBC Homes & Antiques' magazine.

Customer Comments

We loved everything. The sun shone on us. The wind howled at us. The fire toasted us. The house charmed us. And the lambs entertained us. Most of all we loved the peace and isolation... and has anyone mentioned the views yet? - Aly and Duncan, Bristol

Arrived to sunshine and buzzards have had a amazing stay. Without doubt our best stay away from home anywhere, truly wonderful place. Thanks for recharging our worn out batteries....- Woody and Sarah.

Booking Notes

Approached by a very steep farm track (all but the lowest sportscars OK). In ice or snow the owner can assist with a 4x4. Be prepared to adapt to the 'off-grid' living, bring jumper in winter etc. Note: There are power sockets in every room suitable for low power items only e.g. phone chargers not hair dryers. The power is by solar power and battery store. The lighting uses the same power source.
