About the Eco Cabins

Welsh translations are coming soon.

CAT’s Eco-Cabins are situated just off our main site in the stunningly beautiful Dulas valley, part of the UNESCO Dyfi Biosphere. We have two 18-bed Eco-Cabins, providing hostel-style accommodation for up to 36 people.

Approaching the Eco Cabin from the covered link area you enter a welcoming, open-plan living space with kitchen facilities to meet the needs of self-catering groups. Beyond is the bedroom area with six bedrooms, including two singles, plus shower/wet rooms and toilets. Hot water for the cabins is generated by solar thermal panels on the grass roof as well as via the woodstove for heat and hot water. A range cooker with hob and two ovens can be used for cooking.

An adjoining classroom is available. Groups receive the support of experienced CAT staff and all are given a free introductory talk on arrival.


Innovative Water Recycling!

CAT and the Eco-Cabins are not on mains water or mains sewage. Instead, we store water from the surrounding hillsides in a large reservoir on site and safely use this for a variety of purposes.  Used water passes through the reed bed sewage system where it supports a variety of plant and animal life, before returning safely to the environment.
