  • We arrived at the Eco barn to be pleasantly surprised by the size and cosy feel of the place. The views are spectacular! We even watched the annual firework display at Borth from the balcony. We were blessed with brilliant weather for early November but needed the wood burner after a day at the beach walking. The night sky was amazing! We saw the Milky Way and shooting stars. All this made my 50th birthday celebrations all the more special. The barn has been renovated to a high standard with an interesting mix of antique and retro furniture. We will definitely stay here again! One of our favourite UTT places for position/views. Catherine B, 10 November 2016
  • An amazing place, the cottage had a timeless quality. Living literally in the landscape gave a welcomed rest from the digital world. So much to explore in the area for young and old adventurers - Ospreys, art, great cafes, deserted sandy beaches and magical mountains. Nick H, 27 August 2016
  • We enjoyed a fabulous three night stay in this gorgeous barn;it was a great base to climb Snowdon on the Saturday and explore surrounding countryside on the Sunday. The beds were very comfortable, the wood-burner made the barn inviting and the eclectic mixture of styles of furniture and colours looked wonderful together. Feaver R, 21 October 2015
  • Fantastic place to unwind and teach the children about the value of electricity - leave the lights on at your peril! Dr duncan painter , 11 August 2015
  • Diolch am ranu eich ysbrydoliaeth a ni! Mae ganddoch weledigaeth! - Sioned, Aberystwyth 1 July 2014
  • 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. 1 July 2014
  • 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 1 July 2014



Possibly the UK's 'greenest' holiday cottage, this luxury barn conversion is an ideal marriage of sustainable thinking and cool interior design. 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.

Local Area

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.
