Converted Railway Carriage with hot tub (1 at Cwmllwyd Getaways)
The Owner Says
Set in the Carno valleys, in the heart of Mid Wales, Cwmllwyd Getaways is the perfect location for a romantic stay......A place where you can escape, relax and enjoy!
Before fully retiring to Cwmllwyd Getaways, Cefnbrith Carriage found its home on the farm, storing hay in the winter months and used as lambing shelter in the spring.
It is believed that the carriage came from the nearby town of Llanidloes in the 1970’s. Prior to this, the carriage was used on the original Cambrian Railway line transporting goods all over the country. It has probably seen more of the country than me!
Our cosy and beautifully handcrafted bespoke interior carriage sits in a peaceful spot at the foot of the Cwm yr Anel forestry surrounded with panoramic views, it has so much to offer inside and out!
Guests are welcomed by modern double-glazed doors leading into an airy and spacious living area. Here you will find a complimentry breakfast bar with stunning views of the Welsh countryside bursting through the large windows. A perfect spot for your morning coffee to admire those valley views!
Cefnbrith carriage features a cosy and luxury king size bed with a bespoke angled head board. A fresh en-suite shower and toilet room is also fitted.
Your stay also includes:
· On site car parking
· Bed linen and towels (x1 towel per person)
· Self-catering facilities to include pots, pans, crockery and cutlery.
· Complimentary tea, coffee and sugar
· Small Fridge
· Small oven and hob
· Heating to keep guests cosy and warm, whatever the weather!
Cefnbrith Carriage features a private garden area where an electric hot tub and patio awaits. As you ease yourself back into bubbling water, you can absorb the idyllic Welsh views by day, or gaze at the stars by night....Even better with a glass of bubbly.

About Cwmllwyd Getaways
Glampers, adults and children – yes. Campers, campervans, caravans, motorhomes, pets – no.
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 & 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).

Cwmllwyd Getaways is located at Carno, Caersws, Powys
From Newtown, take the A470/A489 towards Carno and Machynlleth. The village of Carno is spread along the road after about 11 miles. Pass the pub, The Aleppo Merchant, and most of the village before taking a right turn onto Cwmllwyd Road, just ahead of the currently disused railway station. There’s a level crossing soon afterwards. After about a mile, there’s a right turn (no throughr road sign and windfarm sign on the enterance) on to a single track road. Take this and after a few bends, Cwmllwyd Getaways is visible. The entrance will be on your left.
A car is highly recommended for this rural location but determined public transport users could take a train to Caersws, seven miles away.
