Panoramic views over the Dyfi Valley towards the Snowdonia mountains, that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your bed, window seat or the elevated patio in front of a fire pit. Slate Cabin is one of eight award winning cabins which were the focus of the Channel 4 / Netflix documentary 'Cabins in the Wild'.

The perfect retreat to experience the silence and solitude of the Welsh landscape, Slate Cabin is designed to reinvigorate those who stay there. Inspired by the Welsh slate industry, the cabin fits effortlessly into its surroundings and embodies simplicity and style. Clever and compact design, with a pull-up table that’s perfect for two and a sumptuous king bed for rest and relaxation that elevates at the touch of a button.

Natural light bathes the space, and a pot-bellied, woodburning stove brings warmth and cosiness. At one end of the cabin, a long window in front of a seat and desk frames a panoramic view of the Welsh landscape. It’s the perfect spot to sit with a cup of tea and a book.

With Glyndwr's Way (one of only 3 National Trails in Wales) on your doorstep, it's also worth exploring your beautiful surroundings. The river Dyfi begins its journey on Aran Fawddwy (9 miles north), the highest peak in Wales and the British Isles south of Snowdon, flows through UNESCO Dyfi Biosphere, past Machynlleth (7 miles), the Ancient Capital of Wales and enters the sea at Aberdyfi (18 miles south-west). From mountain to coast, Slate Cabin offers plenty of variety and attractions. It is also within 1 mile of a village pub, shop and cafe in Cemaes.

  • Welcome pack on arrival includes tea and coffee, sugar and milk and a selection of Welsh delicacies.

Amazing little cabin with incredible views!!! Lovely and accommodating hosts, would definitely come back and highly recommend to anybody looking for a hideaway get away :)

Miss B,

I truly enjoyed my stay at the Slate Cabin in October. The location and views were incredible, the amenities top notch and the host was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a unique stay in a quiet, inspiring environment, in one of the most beautiful areas of the UK.

Ms R,

First weekend ever away from the kids for our anniversary and it was perfect. Brilliant view from the big window at the end of the bed. Beautiful surroundings and the cabin came with everything needed for a relaxing weekend.

mr T,

We really enjoyed our time at Caban Llechi (Slate Cabin) the location and views from the caban window and wrap around deck were amazing. It is furnished to a very high standard, was comfortable and packs all the essentials into its small but perfectly formed space. Our hosts had provided a lovely welcome pack and came over in person to make sure we were settled and gave us useful local knowledge on activities to do and where to eat etc. The caban was very cosy with the log burner, lots of extra fuel was provided. If you’re looking to get away from it all, see stunning scenery, view stars in a very dark sky then I’d highly recommend Caban Llechi and will be visiting again soon.

Miss T,

It was a pleasure to be able to have visited. The owner was absolutely lovely and made us feel very welcome when introducing himself. The cabin was absolutely stunning and the views were too. Pictures do not give justice to how beautiful this place is, we will definitely be returning. A holiday to remember!

Miss D,

We absolutely loved staying at slate cabin. We initially saw the cabin on Netflix’s cabins on the wild, and wanted to book it straight away. Everything about it was amazing, the cabin, the facilities, a powerful shower, comfy bed, the view was outstanding even in overcast weather. Absolutely loved this place.

Mr G,

Caban Llechi is in a beautiful part of the Snowdonia National Park at the top of a hill on an upland sheep farm. The view is stunning and the owners are very helpful. We really enjoyed watching the farmer and his fabulous sheepdog moving the flock from field to field and the deli/shop in town was lovely. The beach at Barmouth was stunning and the Osprey Centre nearby the cabin was a very interesting place to visit. Sitting on the cabin deck, we saw kites, buzzards, hares, rabbits, siskins, loads of swallows and wagtails, and bats. The cabin is very tiny, so don't bring any more than you really need. The only fridge is a very tiny, DC one which is about big enough for two bottles of milk, so we were lucky to have brought an electric cooler ourselves. All the furnishings and supplies are of good quality and everything was meticulously clean.

Dr M,

Such a fantastic stay at the Slate Cabin. We were staying at the cabin as part of our honeymoon, and when we arrived we were welcomed by balloons, personalised cupcakes and a bottle of prosecco. It was such a lovely thought and started our honeymoon on such a high. The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed, very clean and in such a magical location. We will definitely be visiting again in the future.

Mr W,

The slate cabin is a wonderful accommodation in the Welsh countryside. The views are simply amazing and breathtaking, myself and my partner spent 3 days in this beautiful part of the world and enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended and certainly will be looking to return at a later date

Mr P,
