The Sky Hut is one of eight cabins which were the focus of the Channel 4 / Netflix documentary 'Cabins in the Wild'. With a boat and canoes to relax on the lake, the option of fishing and access to a shared hot tub, games room and pizza oven, there is plenty to do on site. The Sky Hut also provides a great base to explore nearby Cardigan Bay and its wide range of attractions as well as the Cambrian Mountains.
Designed to provide a cosy and unique glamping-observatory experience, its lakeside home in West Wales provides the perfect setting to admire the magnificent night sky.

Along with eye level glazing all around this inspirational cabin, you can also open the roof and sliding glass door that leads out to your own decking area with a fire pit. What better way to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Wales?

The cleanliness did let the hut down. All around needed the the finishing touches to be looked at! The Hut and communal areas. We saw the owner once as he was very chatty and welcoming!
Such a dreamy weekend at the sky hut with the sounds of all the animals from geese to donkeys to sheep and all the other farm animals. I normally sleep with earplugs but loved listening to them throughout the night and waking up to the sound of the countryside. When I first booked the sky hut, I thought only of the stars at night but it was also ideal for the daytime. We had lovely weather but with quite a breeze so to be able to sit inside with the roof open was perfect! Although things could have been cleaner, the accommodation was worth the trip. The big negative was the hot tub. There was only one hot tub between the sky hut (2 people), the dragons eye (2 people), 2 families in the glamping pods (7 people) and two cottages (4 people). That was one hot tub between 15 people which is just unsanitary and unappealing - baring in mind there was also another pod not booked this weekend. The system for the hot tub was also a downside as everyone wanted to be in at the same time on an evening as they tended to leave the site throughout the day meaning it was always booked up. Also something to note is that the farm is within the site and of course, the smells carry so if you don't like strong farm smells, it's possible this isn't the stay for you!
Everything was great and it was a really unique stay. We especially liked the welcome hamper provided by the host! It was great to go in spring as there were lambs in the field right next to our hut & the donkeys came over regularly which was cute. We liked that the hot tub was bookable but you have to do this as soon as you arrive as the other spaces were quickly filled up by the other pods. We felt there could have been a few more utensils (such as serving spoons) and the shower was quite difficult to get to the right temperature but other than that, a great stay! If you’re planning on coming we’d recommend bringing some blankets and mosquito spray as we found these meant we could keep the roof open longer!
I prefer booking directly with the owners for better communication.
Brilliant experience and lovely place and people around the area
Great little place, very rural as expected. Accommodation was comfortable, hot tub with a view was great, nice lake and cute donkeys!
“Lovely peaceful place! Fantastic owners and really friendly. I’ve never experienced anything like looking at the stars whilst in bed, an unexplainable feeling. I did a bit of travelling whilst staying and used the sky hut as my base. Some nice trails within an hour or 2 drive. No phone reception to keep in mind for those wanting to do work etc. Hot tub whilst looking over the beautiful landscape was lovely too. Only one gripe that underneath where you pull the bed out could do with a hoover but other than that a fantastic stay and would recommend to others.”
Sky Hut offers a beautiful and completely unique retreat for two, on the shores of a lovely lake on a family farm in West Wales. With stunning countryside and sky views, the cabin also enjoys additional features on site, including a hot tub, communal area and games/laundry room, shared with another cabin and 3 small pods. Set apart from the pods, the cabin is closer to the lake and also enjoys its own patio area to make the most of this beautiful setting.
