Dŵr Y Felin Log Cabins are situated on our working family farm set in a lovely valley in the heart of Mid Wales.
The Humphreys family have been living and working in Carno for five generations. Firstly, the Humphreys' owned the The Mill, grinding flour for all the local farmers. When the Mill stopped working, the family purchased small parcels of land from the Adams Estate, Plas Llysun, and gradually built up the farm, which we are still running today, along with our three children.
Dŵr Y Felin translates as The Mill Water, as the water in the stream nearby to the cabins fed the Mill pool which was then sluiced down to the Mill wheel. Hugh, Sarah and family welcome you to our little corner of paradise, and hope you will return as friends.
Our farm is all grassland which is grazed by our 600 sheep and 30 cattle, plus a few Welsh Cob horses which we breed, but can never part with! They love to graze the field in front of the Log Cabins and entertain you while you sit on your hot tub, oh, and two goats that Ioan bought for himself as a Christmas present!
We have also purchased some Balwen and Jacob sheep which graze in the fields around the Log Cabins. We always look forward to having some lovely lambs from these ewes in the Spring.
There are areas on the farm around your Cabin which provide a welcome habitat to a diverse range of wildlife and flora. Squirrels live in the tree above the cattle grid and buzzards nest high in the trees in the nearby woodland. We regularly see red kites soaring above the farm, there are also badgers in a sett nearby, who do visit the lawns around the log cabins at night to dig for worms! Rabbits have also decided to burrow in the banks between the cabins.
Siwan our eldest daughter has recently returned to the village, and has set up her own self catering business on a small holding further up the lane from our log cabins, exclusive for couples called Nant Awen.
Our son Ioan is in charge of the cattle and sheep on the farm, with Elliw our youngest daughter working locally. They all still help out with the log cabins of course!
As a family run business, we look forward to welcoming all our guests to our log cabins, and greet everyone personally, showing them the hot tub upon arrival. We are also more than willing to pass on our knowledge of the area to guests who wish to see mid Wales' "off the beaten track" - please feel free to speak to Sarah as your hot tub is being checked over in the morning!
We welcome you as guests, and have you leave as friends.

“The perfect place for a retreat away from urban life. No light pollution, no noise pollution, no air pollution. The cabin is a work of art with all the facilities you will need. We had a wonderful break.”
“We had such an amazing time staying in the beautiful Welsh countryside. The cabin we stayed in was absolutely amazing! Everything you need for a relaxing break. The hot tub under the stars was the icing on the cake”
“Very clean, spacious and well equipped. The views are wonderful and it was lovely to see the horses at the bottom of the garden each day. The hot tub was a winner with us! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay”
