Caban Corgi is a woodland Scandinavian-style cabin designed by the Welsh architect Graham Brooks in the 1970s, characterized by an emphasis on natural timber and a seamless integration of indoor and outdoor spaces. It boasts a timber-clad interior and many original features including floor-to-ceiling glazing, which slides open onto the raised decked terrace. There is an open plan dining and living area, which is furnished with a modern take on 1970s retro charm, and a compact kitchen which is impressively well-equipped, ensuring that you have everything you need during your stay. There are two cosy bedrooms, providing comfortable sleeping arrangements for a small group or family, and a contemporary bathroom with an electric shower. Caban Corgi is located within the mature woodlands of Penlan Holiday Village, comprising around 80 cabins designed by Brooks, it provides an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Dogs are very welcome.
Caban Corgi is strategically located to serve as a base for exploring the stunning Teifi Valley, the Cardigan Bay coast, and the regions of Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire. The nearby village of Cenarth, renowned for the spectacular Cenarth Falls where one can witness the incredible sight of leaping salmon during certain seasons, is only a mile away. Additionally, a brief car ride will take you to the magnificent Aberporth Beach, which is one of our favourite spots in the area (be sure to check out Mwnt Beach too!). The town of Cardigan is just a short drive away, offering excellent cafes, restaurants, and shops to explore.
