Dalarwen Off-Grid Holiday Cottage in Wales


Set in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains and on the shores of Llyn Brianne, Dalarwen is a remote off-grid Welsh farmhouse where you can unplug and re-connect with nature, as there is no phone signal or wifi, just peace and a chance for a digital detox. Set on a private forestry track you have the lake in front of you and many forestry tracks to explore where you can spend all day without seeing another soul, just the vista of the sky above stretching in all directions, the rustle of the pines, gentle birdsong, buzzing of the bees and the occasional croak of the raven . Wildlife abounds with many rare varieties of birds and plants, and if you are lucky you may catch sight of a red squirrel, pine marten or otter.

Dalarwen has five bedrooms, 3 with lakeside views, and 2 shower rooms, a large inglenook fireplace with a plentiful supply of wood and enough background heat from the range to keep it warm and cozy. A generator and solar panels provide sufficient electricity for general household purposes, cooking is either on the range or gas cooker and water is from a private spring. And there is plenty of entertainment provided in the form of books, card and board games, not to mention the opportunity to indulge in creative pursuits such as painting, writing, photography, yoga, dance or meditation or just gazing at the stars in the night sky. Many people report coming alive the minute they get here and parents love it when their children start playing imaginative games and their teenagers start talking to them.

Pubs offering meals can be found in picturesque villages within a 15-20 minute drive and in half an hour you have all the facilities of the local town offering shops, cafes etc. Further afield are castles, nature reserves, wild swimming, many beautiful gardens including the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and in an hour and a quarter you can be at the seaside, with the chance of spotting dolphins and seals and maybe even a boat ride.

Sleeps 9. 2 doubles, one single, one twin and one bunk bed room.
In winter the track may be muddy or snowy so a 4×4 may be required, although it is fine for most vehicles the rest of the time.
