Full description
Detox from digital life in a bespoke, lovingly hand-built cabin with a dreamy outdoor bath, set within an enchanting Welsh meadow close to Aberystwyth.

Meaning "charming meadow" in English, Dôl Swynol couldn't be more aptly named.

Beautifully positioned in its own orchard, full of wildflowers, the hand-built cabin resides in the corner of a large, tranquil meadow with a shimmering stream running through.  

Although bustling Aberystwyth is just eight miles away, you'll feel like the only two people in the world as you arrive, souls all ready to switch off from the digital world and relax in the arms of nature.

You'll be greeted with a welcome basket of essentials to get you started. Other mouth-watering treats, including home-baked cakes using eggs from the hens you'll see wandering in the orchard, a tasty deli picnic, and breakfast items fresh from the local butcher can be ordered as extras.

Inside the cheery, colourful cabin also awaits a cosy sofa, with a ready supply of Welsh woollen blankets and butter-soft sheepskin rugs... simply open a bottle of wine and light the woodburning stove for a ridiculously snuggly evening in.

You'll find the spacious kitchen gainfully equipped with stylish copper worktops, a two-ring gas hob and a Remoska, a compact cooker that resembles a Dutch oven. Oh, and not forgetting the all-important fridge, kettle, and toaster!

On sunny evenings, you may feel more like relaxing on the covered verandah, enjoying a sizzling barbecue supper, or firing up the wood-burning chimenea and getting lost in conversation until the stars make their appearance in the dark night sky.

The outdoor bath is a particular treat, decorated with plants and a privacy shield, and strung with solar powered fairy lights. Fluffy robes are even supplied to wrap yourselves in after your dip.     

When you head back inside, there'll be a downy kingsize bed to curl up in, dressed in high-quality linen for a sound night's sleep, and flanked by windows for glorious green morning views.

Relax on the verandah with your first coffee of the day, watching swallows and red kites swooping above, as you decide how you'll spend the rest of your holiday time.

There's an enticing network of paths and bridleways to explore on two feet or two wheels, including an ancient Roman road known as ‘Sarn Helen'.  

You could also visit the village's 13th century medieval church, or wander over to Y Ffarmers, a friendly local pub, for a tasty lunch washed down with a real ale or a craft G&T.

Yes, you could jump in the car and head to Aberystwyth... but you're likely to feel the sense of digital-free peace and calm you experience at Dôl Swynol is wonderfully addictive - so much so, that one visit won't be enough!

Things to note

Minimum 2-night stay.  There is no Wi-Fi, but you should be able to get a 3G or 4G signal on the verandah. Pets are not permitted due to free-roaming animals in the immediate vicinity.
