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!

Just perfect- we loved it! The owners have thought of everything. Sleeping under the bedroom ceiling felt like stars and the view from the hot tub is spectacular! We will hopefully be back.

What an absolute treasure this place is. We had the most relaxing perfect week, fab for the dogs, a week of freedom. Pups say they are sorry for the barking, but it was just too exciting with the birds, squirrels and the train! The best UK break we have ever had, thank you.

Back again as intimated on previous visits! We absolutely love it here. The peace and tranquility completely recharge our batteries before returning to the hustle and bustle of working life!

Amazing cabin in a stunning location! We´ve had such a relaxing stay here. The bed was comfy and the hot tub and sauna are great to unwind. The views from here are beautiful and it was lovely to have a little walk in the woods. Thank you for our hamper and Willow loves hers!

The view is everything about this holiday followed very closely by the "shack" with holes in the roof, the comfy bed, hot tub, and the summer house with a Christmas tree. On arrival the personal message to us before we even got to the front door made us smile. The smile and appreciation for this place didn´t fade until we had to say goodbye. An amazing Christmas present to me from him to him from me- no wrapping paper necessary. Thank you!

The only way to describe this place is perfect! Thank you for such a magical stay, we had a wonderful honeymoon here at Ebony Wood. We will definitely be back one day soon!

Thank you for a lovely and relaxing stay in this fabulous cabin. It was just what we needed. Our dog Pablo greatly enjoyed his gifts, thank you (that´s a really nice touch). You have a great place here, it was everything we hoped it would be!

This was the last week of our holiday after a busy few days up in Scotland. We found Ebony Wood to be the perfect place to relax and unwind. We´ve done a little exploring but mostly just enjoyed the cabin with a great mix of sunny days and blustering wind making us just want to cosy up indoors! Libby absolutely loved her doggie hamper and the mini ball has become her new favourite that she takes everywhere! Thanks again for a lovely stay.

After a busy few weeks visiting family, we were yearning for some peace before returning to work in Dubai. We certainly found it here at Ebony Wood. This place is truly magical and we have absolutely loved every second of our time here. The atmosphere you have created here is perfect. We really appreciate all the care and thought that has gone into this place and Roxy particularly loved her doggie hamper! We will be back for more.

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!

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.

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!
