Created from unusual pieces of oak, the Sleepout and Dragon Cruck are unique handcrafted cabins hidden within rolling hills, with amazing views down the Vrynwy valley and into the hills of Mid Wales. Great for couples - guests can get the chance to totally relax in beautiful surroundings with no mod cons or neighbours just peace and quiet.

The location offers a secluded and peaceful site, yet is also only a mile from the tranquil village of Meifod (where you can go to shop for the basics). On sunny days have a swim or even canoe in the river Vyrnwy that meanders through the valley. The surrounding area provides the perfect playground for people of all ages - explore the local area by walking, cycling or even climbing, there are endless scenic routes straight from the doorstep of the cabins.

The Sleepout has been created with herringbone brick, willow and lime washed cob-plaster walls and bespoke windows. It is kept warm and cosy even on the coldest nights by a wood burner (plenty of wood is supplied) and as for lighting, there are candles in lanterns and solar lights, as well as the glow from the fire. Inside you can find a large double bed, which is on a large sleeping/sitting platform at the back of the Sleepout with a small ladder to get to it, plus room for up to 2 small children on request.

The Dragon Cruck has been created from local timber and has a shingle roof and medieval doors! This property sleeps 2 adults only, so is perfect for rekindling some romance in your relationship. Inside you can find a double bed, cosy wood burning stove and soft lighting provided by lanterns and solar lights. Enjoy the simple things in life with a glass of wine and some fun with a board game or simply chill out with a good book and your loved one by your side.
