About Cae Mabon

"Cae Mabon is a Welsh Shangri La, hanging on a steep hillside with stunning views across to Snowdon. It has grown organically over many years… into a mini expo of handmade buildings using straw, cob, timber, thatch and so on… Built initially without planning permission, officialdom has been won over by its charm and magic."

Tom Woolley, professor of architecture, in Sustain’ magazine, October 2008

Cae Mabon offers shared accommodation for up to 30 people in seven individually designed, hand-made, permanent eco dwellings clustered around a central Roundhouse. This reconstruction of a Bronze Age dwelling, typical of this part of the British Isles, comes complete with comfy sofas set around a central hearth. It’s the perfect place for stories, music, poetry and songs to be shared, whilst in the warmer summer months, the Dragon Snug makes a good alternative for small gatherings.

Food is prepared and served in the converted Barn which doubles as a communal space for group activities. Food tends to be vegetarian, but will depend upon the preference of the group hiring the venue at the time of your stay. Some groups prefer to self-cater, others enjoy the luxury of having a wizard in the kitchen creating magical feasts.

The site has a washroom and a shower with a great view of the tumbling river! Likewise the composting loo offers a stunning view towards the foothills of the Snowdonia Mountains.
