Our simple 70s-style cabin is nestled within a secluded woodland holiday park in beautiful West Wales, close to castles and beaches. Dog-friendly, quiet & relaxing, the cabin has been featured in the Guardian, Observer, Sunday Times & Grazia.
Casita is a small, simple, cosy, romantic and fun Scandinavian-style pine cabin. You're very welcome to bring a dog, and there is a travel cot for babies and toddlers.
It was built in 1973, designed by celebrated Welsh modernist Graham Brooks. We've tried to make sure that Caban Casita retains the 70’s spirit to this day (the good bits of the 70s, anyway - a new shower room, and cosy insulation and heaters have been added!)
Many of the original fittings are there, along with vintage or retro furniture including an Eero Aarnio globe chair. We've really tried to think hard about the decoration and nik-naks you'll find there.
According to the guestbook, in the last couple of years our guests have made at least 7 marriage proposals, celebrated 3 honeymoons, 4 wedding anniversaries, and 10 birthdays, spotted 18 dolphins, and made 36 visits to the Caws Cenarth cheese factory!
Babies and toddlers are very welcome (our daughter made her first trip there when she was 3 months old). Please let us know in your booking, so our housekeeper can make sure the travel cot is there.
If you want to bring your dog, they will love the dog bedroom - a built in dog bed, food bowls and a well ventilated room. There is a dog walking field on-site. (For those of us without dogs you should know that as Caban Casita is fully pine clad and cleaned thoroughly each visit there will be no evidence of our doggy friends for your stay - we don't have a dog, and have never seen so much as a paw print!)
The cabin is nestled within a secluded mature woodland holiday park, where cabins are set in their own landscaped spaces. You will have access to all amenities on the site.
During school summer holidays, when the park is a little busier, there is an outdoor swimming pool, and a bar/restaurant with evening entertainment.
All year round there is a laundry room with washers and driers, and a small shop.
The site does have wifi for a small charge - I wouldn't rely on this, though, as we've found it a bit hit and miss. Although we don't know why you'd want it - the joy of Cabin Casita is getting away from and work emails!
Interazione con gli ospiti
We won't meet you, as we live in Manchester, but we'll always be contactable by phone, text or email.
The cabin is in a small, quiet, friendly, family-run holiday village, which means there is always somebody on hand to help with questions or emergencies. Our housekeeper lives nearby, and makes sure the cabin is set up ready for you.
Between us and my mum (the other owner), we stay there five or six times a year. We do maintenance jobs, generally check that everything's as it should be, and just chill out.
Check out the guestbook when you get there (and please add to it when you leave!) - it's full of our guests' recommendations of where to go, what to see, and where to eat in the local and wider area.
West Wales is one of the most beautiful parts of the world, and Caban Casita is lucky enough to be a short drive from the Cardigan Bay coast as well as right in the middle of the Teifi Valley. It is a mile from Cenarth, famous for coracle racing and cheese production (Caws Cenarth Cheeses, one of Rick Stein’s food *super*heroes, is a short drive or pleasant walk away.)
Within walking distance there are three great pubs with decent food. Drive for under half an hour, and you'll find an array of excellent restaurants, gastro-pubs and independent shops selling locally produced food. In Cenarth itself there is a decent mini-mart, 2 pubs and a post office.
The Cardigan Bay coast is overflowing with great beaches - for sunbathing, cold winter walks, outdoor sports, dolphin spotting (New Quay is home to Europe’s largest colony of bottle-nosed dolphins), dog walking and anything else you fancy. Our favourites are Mwnt and Poppit Sands.
For walkers, we have left an OS map and walk book for your use, and for cyclists, the National Cycle Network route 82 passes close by.
Wales is teeming with Castles (our daughter loves Cilgerran, a 15 minute drive away). And there are lots of antiques shops and centres close by (Newcastle Emlyn, just 10 minutes away, has two), to help you recreate the cabin when you get home!
As an overview, Casita is 1 mile from Cenarth, 3 miles from Newcastle Emlyn, 7 miles from Cardigan, 11 miles from Mwnt Beach, 20 miles from Aberaeron, 37 miles from Aberystwyth, 38 miles from the M4, and a really long way from boring things like work and the real world.
Un giro nei dintorni
With a car (parking is right next to the cabin) you can reach Newcastle Emyln in 5 minutes, Cardigan in around 15, some wonderful beaches like Mwnt and Newquay in under half an hour, and further-afield places like Aberaeron, Laugharne and St Davids in under an hour.
It's good cycling countryside, and there's a nice riverside walk into Newcastle Emlyn and beyond.
Some brave past visitors have used public transport to get to the cabin - the nearest train station is Carmarthen, and the Carmarthen-Cardigan bus goes through Cenarth village, about a mile from the cabin. Public transport in rural Wales isn't always frequent, though, so check out timetables before you attempt it!
Altre cose da evidenziare
We bought Caban Casita around 5 years ago (along with my mum and her partner, John) after we stayed there for new year's eve and fell in love with it. When it came up for sale, we jumped at the chance. We hope you'll love it as much as we do!
We ask that you don't smoke anywhere in the cabin.
Dogs are welcome, although please don't allow them on the furniture, and please ensure they sleep in the dog room.

Hi, I'm Jen - and with my husband Tom, our daughter Amy and baby son Arthur, we love traveling. In the past we've spent a lot of time in south east Asia, particularly loving Thailand and Vietnam, and lots of cities around the world - New York and Madrid are two of our favourites.
Now we have Amy and Arthur we don't travel as far, but we still like getting to anywhere in Britain or Europe with great food, bookshops and markets. If there's a junk shop or flea market, you won't get Tom out of it. We also love the outdoors, and walk in the British hills or European mountains whenever we can.
We own Caban Casita in Cenarth, west Wales - we stayed there a few years ago and fell in love with it, and so jumped on the chance to buy it! We won't be there when you stay there (we live in Manchester), but we know you'll love it.
