This off-grid cabin is set in its own wildflower meadow and has a large deck and lush living roof. Both Hafan and Derwen cabins were lovingly built by us, with the help of a good friend. Hafan nestles snugly in the corner of the meadow surrounded on three sides by woods and traditionally laid hedgerows. The birdsong and wind in the trees will provide the soundtrack to your stay. From the deck you can watch the sun dip below the hills or catch a glimpse of shooting stars whilst sitting round the campfire. On wilder days cosy up by the woodburner in your holiday haven.
Inside, the mezzanine double bed is above a cosy sofa area. This sofa can be split into 2 half sized beds for young kids (beds 120cm long). The wood burner keeps the cabin snug, perfect for cwtching up with a good book! You can experiment with one-pot cooking on the wood burning stove or use the twin gas hob in the kitchen area which is fully equipped with everything you’ll need, including running water. Eat inside or al fresco, at the patio table on the deck. Solar panels provide lighting for the cabin and USB charging sockets for topping up your phone. You’ll also find a guitar, bluetooth speaker, books, board games and playing cards.
Hafan has its own BBQ and fire pit, perfect for cooking sausages or toasting marshmallows while watching the clouds scud by or gazing at the incredibly starry skies. The Brecon Beacons National Park was designated the first International Dark-Sky reserve in Wales in 2013.
Hafan has its own private composting toilet in a tiny wood-clad hut, an eco friendly alternative which is completely sanitary and odour-free.
At the farmhouse there is a modern wetroom shower and toilet for your use. There is also a communal space with a fridge freezer, washing-up area, electrical sockets and WiFi. To help you discover the area and plan your trips, there is a wide range of tourist information to borrow, including OS maps, recommendations and lots of leaflets.
If you fancy a stroll, head out from the cabin and walk down the public footpath to the small river or explore the woodlands at Llwynbwch. Depending on when you visit, you may see bluebells, wood anemones, orchids, marsh marigolds, roe deer and butterflies and you’re sure to see red kites and buzzards.
Don’t forget to bring your wellies/ walking boots and a torch!
