Hinterland Cabin | Luxury Self-Catering | Snowdonia, Conwy, Wales

Hinterland Cabin

Conwy, Snowdonia, Wales, UK

Hidden on the northern border of Snowdonia National Park, this luxury self-catering log cabin overlooks lush Conwy valley, enveloped by big skies and soaring mountains. Whether mountain hiking, gorge trekking or carving through the landscape on a heritage train line; Hinterland Cabin’s hot tub is the perfect remedy to the array of adventures North Wales has to offer.


If you’ve forever been plotting your grand escape to the hinterland, your quest can stop right here. Set within an enchanting wooded copse, this luxury self-catering cabin flaunts superb views over the majestic peaks of Snowdonia and the promise of endless outdoor pursuits. An authentic Welsh hideaway, Hinterland Cabin is made from local slate and railway sleepers salvaged from the Conwy valley line. With little extras hidden in every cupboard, there's little wonder The Independent dubbed it ‘possibly the best log cabin in Britain’.


For relaxation with or without the exercise, Hinterland Cabin is a welcome sanctuary. On stormy nights, batten down the hatches to enjoy Scrabble marathons and the heavenly scent of homemade cocoa bubbling away on the hob. There's popcorn on stand-by for film nights, a jar of marshmallows for hot chocolates and sets of fluffy bathrobes and slippers for sauntering between the cabin, hot tub and sauna. At night, the king-size bed calls you to dive into its cosy Hungarian goose down duvet and Egyptian cotton linens.


Heated to a 'just perfect' 37 degrees, the outdoor hot tub affords guests the ultimate way to enjoy the fresh air in all seasons. Whether a balmy midsummer's evening or crisp winter morning surrounded by snowfall, a glass of bubbly will be the perfect accompaniment to the lush views across Conwy's forested valley. Just 200 yards from the cabin is the edge of the Bodnant Estate, home to Llyn Syberi, a tranquil coarse fishing lake. Wile away a day on the water's edge and enjoy the beautiful solitude of a simple kind of life.

From the owner

“We love to walk along the lake on a summer´s evening or through the carpets of bluebells in spring. The diverse wildlife and views of Snowdonia ensure every season is just as exciting as the last.”

From the owner

Hinterland Cabin was built in the 1960s and after we acquired it in 2004, we set about a full remodel and renovation. The original style was 'garden shed' complete with orange decor... Believe it or not the cabin originally had three bedrooms! Taking out the walls was a quick job with a chainsaw and we enjoyed doing a lot of the work ourselves.

We initially purchased the cabin and designed it as our own secret getaway although we soon couldn’t resist sharing with a few friends, and now our lovely guests. We hope that you fall for our hilltop self-catering hideaway as much as we have.

Guest Testimonials

Fabulous! Thank you for a wonderful stay. A true escape from the troubles of the world. We hope to come back soon.

This is a wonderful place with amazing views! We will definitely be coming back.

Stunning property and views! We´ve had a fantastic week. The only problem is that it wasn´t long enough! We will be back.

This really is the most wonderful place to escape the stresses of life. Absolutely stunning views, a beautiful cabin and the perfect location. We´d booked to explore Snowdonia and hike Snowdon but the weather had other ideas! However, this beautiful base made up for it and we snuggled up feeling cosy as the wind howled around us. Ranger adored his doggie treat bag - such a lovely idea! We will be back, thank you.

We could not have had a better week, thank you so much! The cabin is an oasis; so relaxing, the perfect retreat after days of hiking. We feel incredibly grateful to have gotten engaged in these hills and had the perfect place to celebrate!

We have had a lovely, relaxing weekend in this beautiful, amazingly well-equipped lodge, and the welcome was made even better by the extra touches: flowers, freshly picked herbs and the welcome hamper! The hot tub is the best one we´ve seen and the view from it is simply stunning! We will definitely return! Thank you.

Yet another fantastic weekend, hence the reason we booked Hinterland cabin so soon after our first visit! We find this place enchanting and so relaxing, even if the weather is terrible it´s just lovely to be snuggled up inside drinking wine, eating cheese and listening to music. Thank you again to the owners for all the personal touche! We will be back again very soon.

Wow, what a wonderful weekend we have had celebrating a birthday here. We have stayed in several Unique Homestays homes before and this is by far our favourite! We have enjoyed watching the robins playing, the spectacular view from the hot tub and exploring beautiful Wales. Our little sausage dog, Sergei, has enjoyed zoomies in the garden before snoozing under a fluffy blanket. Thank you for all the personal touches and Sergei´s presents. Lovely memories; we will be back!

We´ve had a lovely weekend here. We loved the welcome hamper and Christmas decorations. The view is incredible and we´ve enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and sauna. A well-needed place to unwind! Thank you!

Thank you so much for a beautiful weekend at Hinterland Cabin. We have a three-year-old so the break was more than needed! We loved all of the special touches you provide here and the amazing hot tub and sauna! We´ve enjoyed watching two robin´s playing on the grass and the views are so beautiful! We will definitely be back!

In today´s busy world, it´s rare to genuinely be able to unplug, relax and switch off. We spent a blissful, guilt-free week soaking up the solitude, watching movies and barely getting out of our robes. Thank you for creating such a magical place to escape from it all. Now to head home and prepare ourselves for quite the opposite - our first baby is due on Christmas Day!

We have spent a lovely week here for our honeymoon, thank you so much for making it all we had hoped for. The views, the cabin and the hot tub are all perfect. We really enjoyed all the little extras provided, especially the hamper of yummy food. We hope to be back!

We have had the most blissful and relaxing weekend in this beautiful cabin. After a covid reschedule from last year, we can confirm, it was certainly worth the wait! Thank you so much for sharing Hinterland Cabin. We shall be returning again in the future!

Wow! What a view! We woke up every morning and couldn´t believe how incredible it is. This has been the most amazing location to spend our honeymoon and a holiday we will never forget. Hinterland Cabin is just so beautiful. Thank you!

We´ve had a fantastic time here and the place is simply wonderful! The attention to detail in everything is a true credit. It has just been perfection. Thank you for sharing your home, or should we say ´piece of heaven´, with us. Don´t ever change the way you make this place so special! We look forward to our return.

Who needs international travel? If discovering Hinterland Cabin is an upside of the last year, it´s a silver lining that will stick with you for a long time. We´ve loved it here, you couldn´t ask for a more tranquil base from which to explore the area. We don´t want to leave. Quincy agrees, although he´s a sucker for a dog treat goody bag!

Oh wow! What a wonderful place this is; you have thought of every detail! We have had the best stay here, topped off with gorgeous weather. The dogs loved it too - we will be back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful property.

Horizontal hail, sleet, and cool temperatures could not dampen the warm splendour of Hinterland Cabin. When the sun burst through, and it did every evening, we were humbled by the majesty of the snow-capped mountains in front of us. We will be reminiscing over our happy time here for a very long time.

We have had the most perfect week at Hinterland Cabin. This should have been our honeymoon but has now become our ´pre-moon´! After last year, this was the break we needed in the most beautiful location. Thank you - we plan to come back!

I have absolutely no words that do this place justice. It far exceeded any expectations. The level of detail and all the finishing touches to the welcome gifts go beyond anything I have ever experienced - not to mention the absolutely breathtaking views! The only negative point I can think of is that nowhere else will ever compare. Absolutely amazing. Thank you so very much.

We have returned each year for about seven years, and have introduced a few friends to the beauty of Hinterland Cabin: its solitude and breathtaking scenery. We always feel completely at home and relaxed. It´s the weekend we look forward to the most every year - an oasis of calm in a world of turbulence.

We have had a wonderful mini brak here celebrating a 50th birthday! We contemplated the Caribbean, Dubai, and Iceland but we are so pleased we escaped to Wales instead! We enjoyed all the facilities, the lovely welcome hamper, we appreciated all the little touches and the ambience when we initially stepped inside this beautiful cabin. Definitely an experience we´re hoping to repeat. Thank you, for allowing us to share your wonderful Welsh holiday home.

Thank you so much for making this lovely cabin available. The specification is top-notch and everything contributed to a very comfortable stay. We have celebrated our silver wedding this weekend and could not have done so in a more magical place.

Thank you for the special small touches that have made our visit so memorable, and thank you for the big things as well! The view from the hot tub is amazing, the setting of all the fixtures and fittings, the decor, in short everything is superb. Unforgettable. Thank you.

This was just the most perfect break away from it all. Ernie (our dog) loved the space outdoors and we were fortunate enough to be blessed with the most beautiful weather. We have really enjoyed exploring the coast and villages of North Wales and really hope to re-visit again soon.
