River Cabin reopening on 13 th July
June 29th 2020
We are delighted to be reopening for guests on 13th July and have used the lockdown closure to build a new wooden deck overlooking the brook for our visitors to enjoy the sparking water and falls.
Our “new normal” has involved carrying out a risk assessment and introducing new measures to ensure our visitors stay safe and well during their time with us. The cabin has a private enclosed garden with BBQ and fire pit and we have been busy finishing a wooden deck where our visitors can enjoy a drink watching the Sgithwen Brook as it tumbles and falls towards the River Wye.

River Cabin on the Wye
March 5th 2018
Perfect for young families
There’s plenty to bring you to the Wye Valley and to stay at River Cabin. The valley itself is, of course, famously beautiful and is home to a plethora of walks and cycle rides. For example, the River Cabin is located on Wye Valley Walk & National Cycle Route 8 making it a fantastic base for walkers, cyclists and anyone wishing to relax and explore this beautiful part of Mid Wales.
You can’t ignore the fact that it is ideally placed for canoeing as well – our own Sam Dalley wrote a piece on it not too long ago, making it sound like a fine old adventure. Sam too her young(ish) family with her. River Cabin is particularly well suited to young families. Self contained in a secure garden – which was once a cider orchard, it sleeps 4 if you all share a room. Toilets, showers and washing up station are all nearby. With that veranda and sliding doors, you can’t help but tumble out into an outdoor lifestyle.
While we’re talking about the cabin, go and have a look at the pictures on IHUK and on their own website. You’ll see the charming location and you can’t miss the solar panelling, less obvious is the aquifer-fed water system – which gives a clue to the green credentials of this little gem. Take in the cool, handmade rustic furniture too.
