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.


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.


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.


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!

Don’t judge a book by its cover. It doesn´t look like much from the outside but this place is too good not to mention! Perfect for a night off cooking, this excellent Chinese delivers to the cabin and is open every evening!

Guest Testimonials

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!

We´ve had a lovely break - the cabin, locations and views are all wonderful. It was the first time we´d used a hot tub as well, which was great on a chilly, rainy day! The silence is the most extraordinary thing, only birdsong and the very occasional train... The two dogs loved it! A fantastic place and all the little touches made it all the more special. Thank you very much for a wonderful week!

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!

Originally our 5th wedding anniversary trip (wood!) but delayed until our 6th and it was absolutely worth the wait. We had plans to venture out but fell in love with Ebony Wood and didn´t want to leave. Right from the generous welcome to every well-thought-out part of the setup. We really didn´t want to leave. Thank you!

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!

Idyllic! The perfect getaway from it all. We´ve simply had the most perfect weekend, it didn´t matter what the weather did - it was bliss. The cabin is stunning and every element is catered for. Thank you for all your help and the treats were an added bonus! We hope to be back 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!

Thank you so much for a really fabulous stay in the cabin of dreams! Our dog, Chip, says thank you, he´s been very excited. We´ve truly had a second honeymoon here and we will be back for sure!

Thank you! You have created a little piece of magic here at Ebony Wood. It is truly fantastic and a place to reflect and enjoy. We´ll be sure to see you again soon!

We´ve had a wonderful time here at Ebony Wood and wanted to say a big thank you for making our week so special. It´s been a perfect place to get away from it all and we´re already looking forward to coming back!

Every moment from the second we walked in has been magical. All the additional details just make it even more perfect. We are delighted that Ebony Wood will be forever in our memories. Thank you!

Thank you for creating such a dreamy holiday home! We absolutely loved our week at Ebony Wood and all the extra touches that make it so special. The views are stunning! Thank you also for the generous hamper - so many tasty treats. We would definitely love to visit again!

A truly magical haven of tranquil serenity - a small slice of heaven to relax and rejuvenate the mind, body, and soul. We are sad to have to leave. Thank you ever so much for a wonderful wedding anniversary.

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.

Well, Storm Dennis meant we almost didn´t arrive here but we are so pleased we were able to spend a few days in this lovely cottage. We found Ebony Wood to be so relaxing and it´s amazing to gaze out over the hills with a mug of hot chocolate in hand. We really hope to come back again someday, although perhaps next time we´ll visit at a warmer time of year. Thank you so much for all the little welcome treats in the cabin!

A totally stunning place to stay for a week! We loved everything and all the little touches really do make it extra special. We adored the welcome pack for the dogs so much! The weather was mixed, sun one minute and gale force winds the next, but that just added to curling up in the cosy evenings. We did so much while we were here, and the cabin really does have everything you could need. We will be back!

Thank you so much for a wonderful break at your incredible cabin. The location is stunning and your lodge is stylish, cosy and luxurious with every need catered for. The hamper is such a lovely touch and so welcoming. Likewise, the outdoor areas are fabulous and the covered hot tub was sublime, especially in the middle of a storm! Thank you!

We really struggle to even begin to try and describe just how amazing this place is! Every little thing here is just perfect, not even storm Ciara ruined the stay as we had this romantic retreat to cuddle up in! It really just has been the best weekend ever. Thank you for creating this place that has allowed us to have the best weekend ever. We cannot wait to share our special moments with loved ones.

You have created an amazing place and we have enjoyed every inch of it. The dogs were as relaxed as us and they loved that they could be with us all the time. After spending a week here, we have our own ideas for our garden and want to create a relaxing space with hot tub and sauna. We have definitely recharged our batteries and this is a perfect little hideaway. We hope to stay again!

We have had the most relaxing stay in this wonderful cabin. The bed is so cosy, hot tub views are amazing, decor is wonderful, the garden is beautiful, but the peace, quiet and nature is just what we needed to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you for our hamper, and the one for our dog! Lovely walks both in the woods and along the blustery beach - perfect. We´ve loved our weekend. Thank you!
