Set in a beautiful valley in Mid Wales, Cablogin Studio offers a rural retreat in a genuine log cabin for up to 4 people plus dogs! (Its name derives from the child of a friend who got the log cabin bit a little mixed up! ) 

The accommodation offers an open plan living room, kitchen area and sectioned off bathroom with hot water, shower and towel rail. The living area has a table to seat four, chest of drawers, bookcase and a king-sized pull-out day bed, all warmed by a log burner and backup electric heater. A spiral staircase leads up to the sleeping platform above complete with double bed. The kitchen area has a fridge/freezer, combination microwave oven, gas hob, four slice toaster, kettle, hot water, cutlery, china, cafetiere and pots and pans and plenty of cupboard space. 

Accessed through the back door from the kitchen area is a conservatory with a table and seating for four/five people. The Cabin is surrounded on two sides by a wide, covered veranda which houses the gas barbecue and where you can sit and admire the beautiful wooded landscape or swing in a hammock. 

The property is accessed from the lane through a double gate into the owner’s garden where a car can be parked for unpacking (parking for one car is in the car park by the owners’ house). The Cabin is fenced off from their garden for peace and quiet and keeping the area as dog-proof as possible. There is a kennel with a run in the front garden area and the extensive veranda has a gate at either end so that dogs can be contained, whilst giving you some peace and keeping out muddy paws. 

Such a uniquely beautiful valley can hardly fail to tempt those amongst you who have an artistic bent and there is a full size easel you can borrow. As the Cabin was initially designed as a studio, the living area has a large Velux window ideal for natural light and a selection of art and writing reference books for inspiration. 

Set within three miles of the Dark Sky Discovery Site at the Star Inn and part of the Astro-tourism trail of the Cambrian Mountains, this area of Wales is composed of breath-taking landscapes, idyllic hideaways and wonderful places to explore. The Elan valley and waterfalls such as Devils Bridge near Aberystwyth (featured in the TV series Hinterland) and the beach at Ynyslas Nature Reserve at Borth are great for dogs. As for wildlife – there are numerous bird species as well as two osprey nesting sites within fifteen miles and two kite feeding sites within twenty miles. And there are bats in the roof! 

Dogs welcome at an additional cost of £15 each per stay. Maximum of 3 small or 2 larger dogs. 

3 night minimum stay with price per night set at £120

Use of a washing machine for those staying a week at nominal charge. Please note that this accommodation is unsuitable for those who need total darkness to sleep. If you are looking for something different, then why not check out Raven's Retreat here on QuirkyAccom, a shepherd's hut below the site that sleeps 2+1, plus dogs!
