Description

The Sky Hut is one of eight cabins which were the focus of the Channel 4 / Netflix documentary 'Cabins in the Wild'. With a boat and canoes to relax on the lake, the option of fishing and access to a shared hot tub, games room and pizza oven, there is plenty to do on site. The Sky Hut also provides a great base to explore nearby Cardigan Bay and its wide range of attractions as well as the Cambrian Mountains.

Designed to provide a cosy and unique glamping-observatory experience, its lakeside home in West Wales provides the perfect setting to admire the magnificent night sky. Named as the country with the highest percentage of ‘International Dark Sky’, Wales is officially one of the most outstanding places in the world to stargaze. Along with eye level glazing all around this inspirational cabin, you can also open the roof and sliding glass door that leads out to your own decking area with a fire pit. What better way to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Wales?

We had such an amazing time. Your hospitality was spot on, the little things like having open access to wood, kayaks and games room was great. The farm is incredible, beautiful views, we didn’t want to leave! Will be returning soon!

Ms C T,

Location

Sky Hut offers a beautiful and completely unique retreat for two, on the shores of a lovely lake on a family farm in West Wales. With stunning countryside and sky views, the cabin also enjoys additional features on site, including a hot tub, communal area and games/laundry room, shared with another cabin and 3 small pods. Set apart from the pods, the cabin is closer to the lake and also enjoys its own patio area to make the most of this beautiful setting.

The village of Mydroilyn and Gilfach Inn is within 1.5 miles, whilst Bardsey View is 2.2 miles, featuring a bar and restaurant. A village shop and pub / restaurant (Llanina Arms) can also be found in the neighbouring village of Llanarth (4.5 miles). Cardigan Bay's nearest beach (Cei Bach) is less than 6 miles and the picturesque seaside resort of New Quay is just 7 miles, where you will find a wide range of mouth-watering restaurants, cafes etc. It is also home to a lovely Blue Flag sandy beach and bottle nosed dolphins, porpoise and seals which reside in Cardigan Bay. A 12 mile journey inland brings you to the rural town of Lampeter, also known as the smallest university town in the whole of Wales and the British Isles.

Dotted with pretty little resorts and stretches of spectacular Heritage Coastland, Cardigan Bay has something for everyone. The Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron lies 8 miles to the north. This architectural gem is full of interest. There's a Sea Aquarium, the famous Harbourmaster Restaurant and the National Trust's Llanerchaeron estate. Travel inland from Aberaeron to the Teifi Valley. A favourite with visitors is Cenarth Falls, a famous beauty spot.

Travel on the narrow-gauge Vale of Rheidol Railway from Aberystwyth and experience the waterfalls at Devil's Bridge or visit the ruins at Strata Florida Abbey, near Pontrhydfendigaid in the Cambrian Mountains. Sky Hut is the perfect base, whether you wish to explore the wonders of Wales, or choose to relax in the comfort of your cabin whilst admiring the beautiful surroundings.
