River Cabin

…a most charming little bunkhouse…

Welcome to the sweetest bijou bunkhouse. River Cabin, near Builth Wells in the Welsh Marches, is in a converted old stone building in a cider orchard. They are pretty proud of their eco-credentials, the headlines being: solar panels all over the roof and water is drawn from the aquifer deep underground. The interior is cosy and rustic. They’ve packed all sorts of features into this tiny space including a pretty well-equipped kitchen; a shower room and a toilet.

Of course you will want to spill out into the grounds, through the glazed sun room and onto the private garden where you’ll find more space for dining, a barbecue and fire pit. The garden tumbles down to the river Wye – just a rushing mountain stream up here. 

Knowing that you’ve got this cosy bolthole to return to, you might venture out in search of experiences and adventure. Of course the river is just here so you might choose canoeing, kayaking or white water rafting. Right on the doorstep are The Brecon Beacons with all the hiking you would expect. Less well known though are the extensive cave systems under the Beacons – some of the longest in Britain – so caving is definitely an option. And, if riding is more your thing there are ample chances to be in the saddle atop either a horse or a bike.
