The Lowdown

Caban Cynnes means Cosy Cabin in Welsh, It occupies a stunning spot on a family smallholding in beautiful, peaceful countryside. An idyllic haven for the outdoor enthusiast offering superb scenery and walks from your front door. Walking, pony trecking, fishing and golfing are all within easy reach.This is a perfect base for bird watching.

The space

Bring your binoculars to watch the Red Kites swoop overhead and the many varieties of wild birds feeding at the bird table. Caban Cynnes is about three miles from the National Trust beach at Penbryn and only 3.5 miles from Blue Flag awarded beach at Llangrannog, both beaches have access to the The Ceredigion Coastal path - with all of its incredible flora and fauna and the opportunity to spot dolphin and seals - all of which are just a short drive away. 

Being this close to nature and the wildlife makes you but feel a genuine sense of peace and relaxation in your own very special paradise.

We loved Caban

We loved Caban Aderyn - it was such a peaceful escape. The woodburner is really warm and cosy and we watched the birds in the field on the feeders on the porch for hours, especially the resident robin and the swirling kites. Our hosts were very kind in leaving firewood every day and some days, the cabin was so cosy that we stayed there most of the day rather than venture out. Even with the howling of storm Eleanor outside, everything within was cosy. Recommended beaches nearby are Penbryn (also the gorgeous Plwmp Tart cafe nearby) and Llangrannog (the Beach Hut is lovely for eating) and Mwnt. We also walked from Borth to Ynys Las at low tide, marvelling at the exposed prehistoric forest stumps in the sand. Llanyrchaeron is gorgeous too. We'll definitely be back - the cabin was lacking in nothing. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Highly recommend

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was one of the most peaceful places we've stayed in and had one of the most beautiful views. The cabin has been cleverly located so that you really feel you're completely alone although the farm is just next door. Basil and Hilary were very helpful and flexible and had equipped the cabin really well. It was lovely to be able to bring our border terrier too. We've stayed in this area many times and absolutely love the coast line. The cabin was close enough to the beaches that it felt like a quick hop in the car. Penbryn is our favourite. We would highly recommend the cabin which was cosy and welcoming. The birdlife was a particular highlight. Thank you!
