Description

The Dragon's Eye wakes up once more, to a beautiful lake view in the heart of West Wales countryside. As featured on 'Cabins in the Wild' series (Channel 4 and Netflix), this award-winning cabin offers a truly unique opportunity to see Wales through its legendary eye. With stainless steel shingles resembling a dragon’s scales, this unique glamping unit will really fire your imagination.

Relax on the large rotating bed and enjoy a stunning view of the beautiful Welsh landscape (night and day) through the full height glass ‘eye’ or from your elevated patio. Or cwtch up in the warmth of the wood burner while protected from the elements by the sheep’s wool insulation. End the day with a hot shower in the walk-in wet room then turn the bed around from the world so that the dragon can sleep tight.

There is plenty to do on site, with a boat and canoes provided for a relaxing day on the lake, the option of fishing and access to a shared hot tub, games room and pizza oven.

A beautiful little space. I think the combination of the Dragon’s Eye and the Cwmcoedog Farm location is perfect.
