Outside the Log Cabins:
Dwr Y Felin translates as The Mill Water. The stream runs through the land, under the stone bridge and meanders down to the village where it used to supply water for the Mill wheel. Only a five minute walk from your Cabin takes you into the center of Carno where you will find the local Spar shop selling newspapers/groceries plus locally sourced food, and the local tavern that serves freshly prepared meals on a daily basis both lunch time and evenings.
Your Log Cabin will be ready for your arrival between 4pm and 6pm. You will find the beds made up, towels provided and a complimentary Welsh Welcome pack.
Dwr Y Felin Log Cabins are attractive, eco friendly, luxury holiday accommodation on a working farm. Furnished to a very high standard with a Hot Tub, these luxury holiday Cabins make a perfect get away for couples and families to enjoy a country break.

Surrounded by farmland, these three Log houses each sleep 6 comfortably. Built from sustainable sourced European yellow pine, with the majority of work done by hand, each Cabin is unique.
Their eco friendly commitment begins with carefully sourced timeber, cut during the winter time and extends through every facet of the design, furnishing, under floor heating, water source via a bore hole and solar water heating system. Dwr Y Felin Log Cabins have been sited to take full advantage of the sunlight. Surrounding each Cabin is a carefully planted, naturalistic landscaped area with fruit bearing trees for your enjoyment.
