Ebony Wood | Luxury Self-Catering Woodland Cabin | Conwy, Wales

Ebony Wood

Conwy, Snowdonia, Wales, UK

Dark, mysterious and ever-so romantic, Ebony Wood on the edge of Snowdonia National Park is an atmospheric couples’ self-catering woodland retreat surrounded by sweet scented pines and rustling hedgehogs snuffling through the earth. Wonderfully secluded and pacifyingly tactile, this luxury cabin-in-the-woods will rouse the senses and lift the spirit.

Introduction

Oh, baby it’s a wild world, but within the confines of this luxury self-catering cabin all is quiet, all is still. Here in north Wales, all matter of busyness lifts away with the morning mist, swirling off between the trees and leaving nothing but blissful escapism. Designed with dreamers and nature-lovers in mind, rough stone and exposed wood combine with soft sheepskins and crushed velvet for a wholly organic experience inside, while a whirlpool hot tub and sauna provide a warming al fresco space deep within the pines, even within the depths of winter.

Inside

Layered with plush cushions and thick throws, the king-size bed is a tempting place to while away the days at Ebony Wood, however, with such illustrious landscapes right outside the front door, leave one must. Enjoy drawn-out breakfasts beneath the duvet before heading out to explore Snowdonia National Park, relishing in the knowledge of a cosy self-catering retreat on return. Rough-luxe to its very core, this woodcutter's cabin immerses guests in nature from the inside out.

Outside

With views of the River Conwy in one direction and dense forest in the other, Ebony Wood’s exterior is pure delight for those seeking to run far from the hustle of inner-city living. Spend summer evenings whipping up al fresco culinary masterpieces in the outdoor kitchen before sinking into the hot tub as the mountain air cools with the night. On those North Wales winter days where the snow blankets the ground, warm through in the sauna while magic spreads across the land.

From the owner

“The cabin has always been our woodland hideout, we turn off our phones, close the gate and forget the world for as long as we can. We love listening to the sea birds on the foreshore in the morning, watching the buzzards catching thermals in the afternoon and hoot to the owls at night.”

From the owner

We believe that there has been a recreational building on this spot at the edge of the estate for 50 years or more. When we moved here in 2005 after spotting the property from across the river, we knew that the cabin would be a very special place.

Ebony Wood is surrounded by private woodland, some of which can be explored via the gate near the parking area. The water that you can see to the front is the tidal estuary of the River Conwy, with the sea behind to the north, it supports a huge variety of bird and animal life that changes with time and tide. The mountains in the distance are the foothills of Snowdonia, with Snowdon itself almost directly in front of us about 30 miles away.

In terms of wildlife, it’s not unusual to see buzzards, red kites, woodpeckers, curlews, ducks, geese, swans, bats, badgers, squirrels, foxes and rabbits, but our favourites are the owls, we'll never forget when we saw four babies lined up on a branch!

Guest Testimonials

It´s been an amazing stay- thank you so much! Ebony Wood has been a perfect escape from reality. The attention to detail has been amazing- the hamper, the milk and cheese in the fridge, was a lovely thing to be welcomed into. We had a great time enjoying the views, from the hot tub, exploring Aber Falls and Betws-y-coed, and relaxing outside in the evening using your outdoor kitchen area. You really have thought of everything. We´ve had such a lovely stay here, we will be sad to leave. Thank you for letting us experience this little slice of heaven!

After a mad few days in Liverpool (party central!) celebrating our daughter´s graduation, we returned to Ebony Wood for some R&R! Ebony Wood is exactly how we remembered it, we absolutely love it here. I have a feeling that we could be making this trip an annual mini break! Thank you for having us again.

What an absolutely amazing cabin. We found ourselves planning less around town so we could experience all this cabin had to offer. We enjoyed yoga, the hike, bird watching, swinging, and the hot tub. This stay has been a favourite thus far. Thank you!

Had an amazing break, perfect setting and wonderful cabin- the little touches were brilliant!

Well, what can we say other than thank you! We had the best elopement wedding and honeymoon here. All in one place! It was perfect. Your attention to detail is phenomenal. The jacuzzi with the stunning views were incredible. The music and generous hamper upon arrival was such a beautiful touch. This week has been magical for us and we already wish to spend our anniversary here! See you next year!

We had a fabulous week here and it was just what we needed- helped by beautiful weather! Loved how you´d thought of everything. Thank you for a great week and we hope to be back one day.

Thank you for sharing your amazing place. The cabin had everything we needed for a fantastic four-day stay. The spa, the yoga deck, the bird watching hut; every detail made for a great trip to Conwy but perhaps most of all, the peace and tranquility of being completely surrounded by greenery. Thank you.

We had the most amazing time. Ebony Wood is stunning and the setting is fantastic. The cabin was absolutely spotless when we arrived and we really appreciated all the special touches like the doggy gift bag, the lovely hamper and music playing. It made the cabin feel so welcoming. Such a treat to spend Mother´s Day chilling on the deck and sipping Champagne in the hot tub! This is a very special place.

Ebony Wood is breathtaking. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and explored the stunning surrounding areas, including the impressive Aber Falls. The cabin is beautifully decorated and cosy; lying in the hot tub after our long hikes has been glorious. Not even the three storms we had affected our stay! The hamper was delicious and our dog, Kodie, really enjoyed his too. Thank you for sharing Ebony Wood.

Speechless about how wonderful this cabin is! The welcome board on approach, the music playing and soft lighting on entry, the delicious hamper and lovelies waiting for us; it´s all so great! A weekend of not doing anything was exactly what we needed and very well-served at Ebony Wood! We hope to return and enjoy this place again sometime soon.

We had a windy, wet and wild but wonderful week here! After an epic few months working 24/7, this was the perfect place to unwind. The warm welcome and cosy interior is so relaxing with everything you could need, all catered for. See you again, we will definitely be back!

Amazing! From the moment we entered the gate to the last minute, we felt relaxed and at home. Your hideaway is truly idyllic and we hope to return again next year. Thank you for allowing us, and the dogs, to stay here - we all had an amazing break.

What a complete oasis! This was just what we needed to get away, relax and recharge. Thank you for this wonderful place and for putting the hot tub in that perfect position - watching the sun go down while having a soak was a real highlight! We´ve enjoyed exploring this beautiful area and having Ebony Wood to return to was the icing on the cake.

Thank you for the most amazing break! It really is like something out of a fairytale. Ebony Wood will be a place we will always remember, not only because we got engaged! Thank you again.

We have had the most relaxing week at this beautiful cabin. All of the little extra touches and care you have put in to make this such a tranquil escape really made our holiday! Barley absolutely loved his doggy hamper and we just loved waking up to such lovely views every day! All the recommendations were brilliant; thank you for having us!

Thank you for a very relaxing week in your beautiful cabin. Arriving at sunset to the view, sparking lights and all the wonderful little touches set us up for the perfect week ahead. We couldn´t have asked for anything more! We loved making use of the yoga deck in the mornings - what a fabulous view! Thank you for everything!

The batteries are well and truly recharged after our break at Ebony Wood. Thank you so much. Everything was so well stocked and thought out for our arrival, and the peace and quiet here is second to none! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

We´ve had the most perfect mini-moon here at this beautiful cabin. You really have thought of everything to ensure an enjoyable and relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Thank you so much for being so accommodating, we are already talking about when we can come to Ebony Wood! We are also very grateful for the lovely hamper tailored to our dietary requirements - very thoughtful and unexpected, thank you!

We´ve had a truly relaxing and romantic mini-moon! We´ve loved every moment and are both sad to be leaving this beautiful retreat. The little touches do not go unnoticed and thank you for the lovely welcome gifts. We vow to come back someday to experience Ebony Wood once more. It felt as if we could have been anywhere in the world and nobody would disturb us - a feeling we´ve never had before. Now, married life awaits. Thank you!

We truly have had a wonderful stay at Ebony Wood. It is the perfect idyll to rest and recuperate while enjoying the surrounding areas. I have been plagued by ill health for the last three years and ongoing: there are no medicines that can trump Ebony Wood. Thank you for a beautifully clean and well looked after home-from-home. Freddie enjoyed his treats and is taking a new pal home for his toy basket. We are very sad to be leaving, but we will be back!

Thank you for having us at Ebony Wood, we have had the most relaxing, wonderful time. This place is absolutely amazing and you really have thought of everything your guests could want or need. Thank you again, we hope to come back again soon!

What a magical place! It really has been the perfect holiday and we can´t fault Ebony Wood at all. We loved all the thoughtful touches that have delighted us as we´ve explored the building and grounds. Even though the weather has been changeable (sun, hail, rain, wind) it has simply added to the experience! We´ll always remember the sound of hailstones on the roof. Such a lovely place and incredible hosts - we really hope to come back again. Thank you again, and our dog, Dylan, was over the moon with his gifts!

Our hosts were absolutely amazing, from the moment we got there to the moment we left, they helped us to have an incredible stay. Even when I had a slight mishap and dropped my wedding ring down a hole, they came to our rescue! The welcome hampers were a wonderful touch (even for our dog!). The location of Ebony Wood is amazing, the views and sounds of nature are the perfect break to reset your mind, body and soul. We didn´t want to leave!

We fell in love with Hinterland Cabin and now we have fallen in love with Ebony Wood. The design, decor, special touches and added extras were a real treat to return home to every evening. With bubbles in the tub, music and tea al fresco; we have been in heaven. We have relived childhood memories on the beautiful Isle of Angelsey, hiked circuits with breathtaking views, explored the beaches and ambled away lazy mornings. Thank you so very much once again! Magical!

If ever there was a template for the perfect rural retreat, Ebony Wood is it! The perfect antidote to a world in lockdown, we have had a fabulous time exploring by day and relaxing at night. Thank you for sharing your getaway retreat with us.
