Welsh valley glamping with panoramic views and hot tubs

As you wend your way up the valley road, the stress of the journey, the pressure of work and all thoughts of home soon slip away. It won’t be long before you’ll be easing yourself into the bubbling waters of your private hot tub at Cwmllwyd Getaways. There’s nothing for you to do here but settle in and think of Wales. And, to be honest, it’s hard not to; what with the panoramic valley views, the slate roofed village in the distance and the sound of hardy hill sheep bleating nearby.

So far so Welsh and the accommodation fits right in too. There’s a converted railway carriage and a pair of Welsh-built glamping pods. That’s it: three standalone units that work as well for couples as for a couple of families holidaying together (the railway carriage sleeps two, the pods: up to four). Either way, you don’t have to share this special location with many or your facilities with anyone at all. The pods and the carriage each have their own little fenced garden area, their own parking spot and are fully self-contained with a kitchenette, en-suite bathroom – the lot. They are heated, insulated and have electricity and hot and cold water on tap.

Ceri and Geraint are the young couple behind this business. That’s exactly the beauty of the place. It’s somewhere you could spend hours just reading a book, observing the birds, watching tractors plying the valley road and the occasional train whizzing by down in the village.

If you’re feeling energetic, you could go for a walk. It’s three miles back down to Carno village where there’s a good local shop and an exotically-named pub, The Aleppo Merchant. But this is Wales and while relaxing is easy, bigger adventures are not hard to find either. You can be on the coast or in southern Snowdonia in an hour. Whether you choose a stroll down to the pub, a hike up Cader Idris or a day swimming at Barmouth beach, you might find that wending your way back up the Cwmllwyd Valley holds as much anticipation as the adventure you’ve just had.

Cerniog: Luxury Cabin with hot tub
Wales you have outdone yourself!!!!
My first time visiting the exquisite country of Wales and Cwmllwyd Gateways made my stay everything I could have asked for. From the drive to the pod (equal parts stunning and charming) to the location, impeccably well maintained with views to die for) to the pod itself (nothing short of sublime). This getaway was absolutely everything and I cannot wait to come back and stay again and for a longer time. One of the best stays I’ve had a quite a while.

Cerniog: Luxury Cabin with hot tub
Loved our two night stay! The views are incredible and so peaceful, hot tub was perfectly placed to sit and relax whilst looking looking at the view. Stayed as a family of 4 for the Eisteddfod, we were lucky the weather was kind to us. Nice surprise the pod looks out onto the Mach Loop and saw two amazing planes! The pod was a very clean with a great layout out, well equipped and maintained. Ceri was very responsive when we needed anything. Would highly recommend and definitely come back and explore the area more as so much to do!

Cledan: Luxury cabin with hot tub
Beautiful cabin situated in such a wonderful location! The Cabin had everything you could possibly need for self catering. Everything was spotless and mksern. Hot power shower with all the amenities! Our standout was the bedroom, such a comfy bed in a little off room of the main cabin! The hot tub was just what we needed after climbing Snowden. Again, superbly clean. We’ll be back as soon as humanly possibly. Highly recommend to anyone wanting a few days of peace! Many thanks!!

Cerniog: Luxury Cabin with hot tub
Beautiful couples get-away.
My partner & I had an absolutely wonderful time at Ceri’s. The views were just spectacular, and the cabin felt like a home from home. We didn’t even feel the need to eat out, so had home cooked meals both nights. We went for a long walk around Hafren Forest, and then back to the blissful hot tub for a glass of bubbles. I would recommend this stay to anyone, but in particular couples that want a little special get-away. Thank you, we will be back!

Cerniog: Luxury Cabin with hot tub
We loved this trip for my wifes birthday, the weather wasn't the best but once it dried and we could use the hot tub it was amazing. Great cooking facilities and a really comfortable bed. We both come away with no complaints about the accommodation.

From the host
Looking for a luxury getaway, Cwmllwyd is the place for you! Away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life, Cwmllwyd Getaways sits majestically in the Carno Valley, at the foot of the Cwm yr Anel forestry, within lush green fields. Whether you are planning a romantic getaway, adventure holiday or an escape to the country to unwind with friends and family, our newly developed site offers the perfect retreat. We offer three luxurious units; two spacious four berth cabins, and a cosy converted carriage that boasts a beautiful handcrafted bespoke interior. All our cabins include a modern en-suite shower room, as well as large windows to fully appreciate the breath-taking panoramic views. Each cabin also benefits from its own private decking area, where your electric hot tub awaits! Also if you are lucky you may see local farmer Jones. The nearby village of Carno is most famously known as the home of Laura Ashley – the factory still stands in the village, and her final resting place is at the St John The Baptist Church, Carno. Sit back and watch the world go by, where the grazing livestock and bird-song provide the only background noise. The tweeting of the blue tits are the closest you will get to twitter in this secluded spot! By night, the site is ideally placed for some star gazing as you ease yourself into the bubbling water of your very own private hot tub. We recommend getting a bottle of bubbly chilling in the fridge in preparation, please let us know if we can help with this or if you have any specific requests! In the village, you will find a shop providing a range of groceries to include local produce, beers / wines and basics; and just a little further down the road, the heart of the village, the local pub that serves great home cooked food and drinks, with a welcoming atmosphere. Cwmllwyd Getaways is located just off the A470, which can lead guests to our rugged welsh landscape including Snowdonia national park to the north, the Brecon Beacons to the south, and the Cambrian Mountains and Cardigan Bay to the west. Then again, once you settle in to your luxury cabin surrounded by idyllic views, you might not venture far at all. Unfortunately, we do not allow pets. WiFi available in all accommodation
Nearby attractions

You can walk and cycle on country lanes and foopaths nearby or head to Hafren Forest or the Elan Valley Reservoirs. Like most things, they’re about an hour’s drive from site (20 and 30 miles away). It takes a little less time to get to Dolgellau (also about 30 miles away) from where you can head off up Cader Idris, the highest mountain in Southern Snowdonia or discover the MTB trails of the Coed Y Brenin Forest Park. Beyond Dolgellau, it’s another 15 minutes to the seaside town of Barmouth where there are plenty of facilities alongside its sandy beach and harbour. The smaller resort of Aberdyfi is further south and is a good base for watersports, also an hour’s drive.

Food and drink

The village of Carno has a shop with all the basics as well as a selection of local produce. The village pub, The Aleppo Merchant (01686 420210), serves good pub grub and has a welcoming atmosphere, a games room and a garden. There are more options in the surrounding villages but for more than a local pub, perhaps try the options when you’re out and about at the coast, in Dolgellau (45 minutes away) or Machynlleth (30 minutes’s drive).
