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.

We do allow disposable barbecues however please ensure all safety measure are considered and adhered to.

 The nearby village of Carno has a shop providing all you need, from local produce to daily essentials. Further down the road you have the local pub, The Aleppo Merchant Inn, where there is something for everyone, including homemade food, beers and wines.

 A warm welcome awaits!

About Cwmllwyd Getaways

Suitable For

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).

The most perfect break away

I cannot recommend this place enough. It’s so beautiful and peaceful with the loveliest owners ever. You’re made to feel so welcome and at home the second you’re there. The facilities are like home from home and the amount of effort involved to make your stay the best one is unbelievable. The hot tub is private with a lovely view and the cabin is so cosy you can’t help but fall in love with it! My only complaint about this place is that I cannot live here full time (I would literally move in tomorrow). Thank you once again for a really wonderful stay, we can’t wait to come back x

Incredible getaway!

This was the perfect weekend away in a very lovely, peaceful area! The hosts were very kind and welcoming, the cabin kept the heat in perfectly all day and all night, the hot tub was also very relaxing! Would definitely recommend and shall return in the future!

Wonderful getaway in a gorgeous location

We stayed in Cledan cabin, it was clean and tidy, stylishly decorated and so so cosy. All mod cons and heating and of course an amazing hot tub, which despite it being a cold weekend were more than happy to get in. Views are spectacular and at night the stargazing is another level. Even got treated to a few shooting stars! The pub in the village The Aleppo Merchant is warm and welcoming and the food is really good, really recommend a meal there. We also travelled to Newtown for the day and had a shop around the market and stopped for a nice hot drink and mince pie at the Lion Inn. Only a 20 min drive and have all major supermarkets if you want to stock up, however the Spar in Carno the local village has the essentials. Could not recommend enough and hope to come back next year at some point. Thanks to Ceri and Geraint for a wonderful stay.

The most wonderful getaway

Myself and my partner escaped here for a quiet getaway weekend and it was absolutely perfect. The sight and surrounding area is beautiful and the pod we stayed in was so cosy we didn’t want to leave. The hosts were lovely and kept us well informed before our arrival and the drive to the sight (no matter which direction you’re coming from) was incredibly scenic. It is the ideal place to visit if you want to explore the heart of wales or simply to enjoy some peace and comfort. We can’t wait to come back!

Absolutely stunning

Beautiful views, clean luxury cabin with an extra added bonus of a lovely hot tub that we used so much to just chill and unwind in! Will definitely back! It’s worth every penny!

Getting There

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.
