The Carn is nestled on a secluded hill on the idyllic Frith Meadow, with incredible far-reaching views across the valley and hills. The stunning wooden cabin is expertly designed and hand-built by the owners with a big focus on sustainability, using eco-conscious materials like locally sourced wood and wool insulation in its construction. Completely off-grid, the home is powered by solar panels (don’t worry about grey days, there is a backup generator!), and has its own fresh water supply and rainwater tank. With cosy interiors and lots of outdoor living space, it is the perfect haven for rest and relaxation.
Stepping into the cabin you can really see how much care and effort has gone into it. From the upcycled furnishings and countless plants to the many well-placed windows providing buckets of natural light and gorgeous country vistas, it really is a magical property. It sleeps up to five in two delightful bedrooms, a master suite with a king-sized bed and an additional room with a double bed and a single bunk over it, ideal for children (a cot is also available on request). When it’s time to eat, guests can make use of the fully equipped kitchen to cook delicious meals, with all the cooking essentials included for your stay. In the colder months, a woodburning stove can be fired up to keep the cabin toasty (firewood and kindling provided), whilst underfloor heating warms cold feet.
A real highlight of The Carn is its outdoor living space. The porch is a great place to relax, with outdoor furniture for alfresco dining and a super comfy swing chair to hang around in and spot some of the local wildlife. It’s also where you’ll find the Portuguese bucket shower and sunken bath, the latter ideal for a calming soak under the stars. Down from the porch is an enclosed garden with a fire pit, where guests can sizzle up food on the grill or toast marshmallows as the sun sets. Guests staying at The Carn will receive a welcome pack of locally sourced goodies, including sourdough bread and hand-pressed apple juice. There are other hampers available to order, full of the finest produce.
The cabin is surrounded by open countryside, with many fantastic footpaths and trails right on your doorstep. Just make sure to bring wellies and suitable clothes if you fancy exploring. The pretty town of Presteigne - which sits right on the Wales-England border – is a short drive or scenic walk away. Here you’ll find a good selection of independent shops, traditional pubs and excellent restaurants, as well as many popular attractions. And if you fancy a true culinary experience, there is a Michelin starred restaurant at the nearby village of Titley.
