Cenarth (waterfalls) in West Wales
This 1973 retro cabin is one of the best preserved/restored 1970s interiors in the UK. Designed along Scandinavian principles, this cabin enjoys swimming pool and wifi access and is surprisingly affordable. Walk down to the famous waterfalls or over the border into Pembrokeshire
Our cabins were named No 1 in The Guardian travel section's list of Top 5 UK Log Cabins! Caban Cariad (The Loveshack) is a groovy woodland cabin in the heart of the beautiful West Wales countryside at Cenarth. Architect designed in 1973, and renovated with retro and designer furnishings, the cabin is a simple (basic even) but fun place to stay. It is nestled in the trees at Penlan woodland holiday village in Cenarth, a quiet, quality holiday village of privately-owned cabins carefully arranged into small 'cul de sacs' in the woodland. Free use of communal pool in the summer! Walk by nearby waterfalls or short drive to a string of beautiful beaches.

This was great. It was our first holiday with our 5 month old son. The cabin was warm and big enough for the 3 of us. We took our own travel cot and set that up in the lounge at night. The village was...

This was great. It was our first holiday with our 5 month old son. The cabin was warm and big enough for the 3 of us. We took our own travel cot and set that up in the lounge at night. The village was quiet with a nice pool. Being able to use the laundry was also really important. The kitchen in the cabin was equipped for us to cook simple meals in the evening and the microwave was big enough to fit our steriliser. The village of Cenarth is lovely too. It is a great base to explore the coast with some excellent beaches and walks. We would definitely book this cabin again when he is older and can enjoy the sandy beaches and paddling in the sea.
The cabin was comfortable and stylish (and particularly loved by our 10 year old daughter), it had everything we needed, and we really liked the holiday park - lots of trees, the pool and close to the lovely village of Cenarth with its falls and to beautiful countryside and beaches. Everything was very dog friendly too, and Jane the owner of the cabin was very helpful providing us with lots of very useful info before our trip so that we were able to make the most of our short break and find things to do things that suited us, our daughter and our dog. We have already recommended the cabin and the holiday park to friends and hope to return ourselves for a longer visit.
Just returned from a lovely few days down in Cenarth at Caban Cariad
