When you stay, you relax in a beautiful, sensitively converted 1840s stable building (Yr Hen Stablau is Welsh for The Old Stables). Our idea was to conserve a beautiful farm building, to create an environmentally friendly building and to support the local economy and culture (architects Adam and Frances Voelcker).
The cosy holiday cottage sits in the luxuriant gardens of Pantlludw (see history), between a mountain stream and banks of rhododendron and azalea. It is near dark skies in the Snowdonia National Park and within 10 miles of Dylife Dark Skies Discovery Site in Powys (see environment).
Welsh landscape, seaside, wildlife, culture and sports activities
It is within easy reach of nature reserves, picturesque mountains, sandy coastline, clean rivers and green hillsides: this is a haven where you can really get away from it all.
It is also an excellent base for a more active holiday in Snowdonia – easy access to climbing, mountain biking, golf, narrow gauge railways, castles, art galleries and shops (see things to do).
