Caban Cader

This curved cabin sited at the top of a hill is crafted from an eclectic collection of found objects and restored parts. With long-reaching views and mountain biking trails from the front deck, you'll be plotting adventures from the moment you arrive.


From £90 PN



There’s a living area with a double sofa-bed, a dining area and kitchen. The sleeping loft above has a double bed and a little window seat. There’s also a small bathroom with a hot shower and flushing loo. Caban Cader offers a light and spacious place to stay, made of an eclectic collection of found objects and restored parts, not least the floorboards from a former BBC studio! 

Outside, you can build a fire and relax on the deck, with stunning valley views that invite you to venture out. Custom-made downhill bike trails thread through the woods or there are maps in the cabin for hikes across the valley and all the way down to Machynlleth five miles away, where you can find great pubs, restaurants and craft shops. You could even head out to the coast and brush up on your surfing.

We had a brilliant stay at Caban Cader. The interior of the cabin is great and gets very cosy once you fire-up the wood burner. An awesome place to go back to after a hard day’s hiking, and amazing views over the valley.

We loved our stay in Caban Cader it was such a cosy escape from our hectic lives and was great to completely detatch from all forms of technology! It was clean and tidy and had the essentials required for a weekend getaway.

The most beautiful location and cosy caban. A really lovely place to holiday as a young family. Will definitely be back with so much more to explore.
