Cabin On The Lake

About Us

Gwalia is a traditional small farm set in the peaceful hills of Mid Wales, near Machynlleth. It’s an amazingly special place, loved by us and many, many guests over the years. It’s a family run smallholding with an abundance of wildlife supported by our environmentally sensitive farm.

Recently launched is our amazing Cabin on the Lake, a unique Glamping cabin with it’s own private hot tub. Experience all the wonderful wildlife and wilderness of Gwalia but with the luxury of a sumptuous, down clad double bed, a full height, insulated roof over your head, a wood burning stove and fully equipped, covered outside kitchen, not to mention your own private canoe and wood-fired hot tub overlooking the lake.

Sit out on the decking with a cool beverage from the powerless fridge and watch the wildlife pass you by just relax and be mesmerised by the water. Take a trip in the canoe and paddle silently around the island or even stop off for a picnic. Rest in your own, private wood-fired hot tub at the edge of the lake, then dip in the cool waters if you’re feeling hardy.

The cabin has a wood burning stove and a plentiful supply of firewood to keep you warm and toasty on cooler evenings. The well equipped kitchen is sited under the long overhanging roof so you can have the delight of outdoor cooking in the fresh air knowing you’ll always be dry. Everything we can think of is provided so that you can have a hassle-free, luxury stay.

Experience the joy of camping in the outdoors with none of the packing! Your hosts are just a 100m away if you need anything just phone or knock and we can provide.

There is unique, private Swedish style composting toilet (with a view!) and an outdoor pump-up shower (water heated on the stove). A conventional shower is available at the farmhouse**

*down free duvet available on request **by arrangement as our water is heated by solar / wood and we need to ensure the water is hot.

Glamping with Private Hot Tub on the Lake:

Does it sound too good to be true? It’s not! Yes, we have just taken delivery of this wonderful timber wood-fired hot tub, perfect for two. Relax in the lakeside hot tub under the dark, silent* starry nights in the wilderness. The Hot Tub is a truly wonderful treat. Clear, fresh water (no chemicals!) is supplied from its own private spring – we can show you the source where it bubbles up from deep under if you like. We change the water after before every every new guests. The Hot Tub takes about 2 hours to warm up, so if you light the fire whilst you’re cooking tea it’ll be ready for your evening soak later.
