Staying at Chestnut Cabin means breathing out and relaxing in the warm, welcoming arms of Welsh nature.

Peacefully secluded in an idyllic corner of a family-run farm in West Wales, there’s no end of fresh-air-filled fun and adventure right on the doorstep… that’s if you can bear to leave!

The friendly owners have lived on their beloved farm for over 30 years, and they’ve personally styled the cabin to make you feel immediately at home, too. They’re also passionate about ‘giving back’ wherever they can, so proceeds from your stay will directly contribute to children’s education in Malawi.

The cabin has been created to allow you to reconnect with those you love the most. You’ll find the elegant lounge home to an irresistibly warm hearth, comfy seating, and a unique selection of board games… or simply open a bottle of wine and get lost in laughter-fuelled conversation for a while.

You’ll find the kitchen well equipped for cooking up a romantic dish, to be enjoyed together around the dining table or beside the open fire. The cabin is perched on the edge of an indigenous woodland, with stunning views down the valley and perfect for stargazing into the night.

Indulge in a game of croquet, then fire up the pizza oven for an al fresco supper with a side helping of sunset. Later on, you get to greet the arrival of the stars from the comfort of your very own cedar-clad hot tub – pure heaven!

When it’s finally time to turn in, two stylish bedrooms will be waiting: one double room, and a cheery bunk room that the kids will love.

What to do when you wake up? Regardless of the time of year, rural Wales is one of the loveliest natural playgrounds you’ll ever experience – so make sure you’ve packed your walking boots and your wellies. There is a forest walk on the farm, perfect for a romantic stroll, family scramble, and a dogs version of heaven!

Folly Farm is within easy reach, an adventure park and zoo with over 750 animals, for a fun day out with the kids. Serious thrill-seekers will prefer the Blue Lagoon in Abereiddy, for picture-perfect, adrenaline-fuelled Pembrokeshire coasteering. Inside the cabin you’ll find an array of recommended coastal walks to enjoy.

National Trust Drwslyn Castle is well worth a visit, too; a magical place in which you can spot grazing deer and take a winding, mesmerising walk before returning to the cabin for a hearty home-cooked supper!

What the guests of Chestnut Cabin say

“Thank you for a memorable holiday. Our kids are devastated to leave!  They have loved being in the outdoors, cooking marshmallows on the fire, enjoying LOTS of pizza and the freedom of running wild in the woods. Treasured memories.”

“We have loved watching the abundant wildlife- literally from our breakfast table! The red kites seemed to get closer every day and I don’t’ think I’ve ever seen so many different birds in a garden before, bull finches, nuthatches, woodpeckers…the list goes on. The cabin has been perfect for unwinding from a crazy busy city life, nature we love you. Ps. the hot tub was fabulous!”

“Thank you for an amazing stay. You have thought of everything to make a perfect holiday. Betsie loved charging around the woods and then relaxing beside the fire! Hot tub, log fire, stars…and getting engaged (!), wow, what a place!”
