Remotely situated on the tranquil shores of Llyn Brianne reservoir in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains. Dalarwen is an idyllic, traditional Welsh farmhouse. Fully off-grid, there are no neighbours; telephone; mobile-phone signal or other distractions. Perfect for getting away from it all. All of our electricity is generated on-site using solar panels with a backup generator and the water is sourced from a private spring.
Ideal for artists, writers, walkers, astronomers, and wildlife lovers. There are plenty of local walks around the lake and surrounding forestry. Being isolated Dalarwen has very dark skies and is suitable for astronomy and astrophotography. Wildlife includes; Red Kites, Otters, Slow Worms and Nuthatches. Many of which can be seen from the house as well as local sanctuaries such as the RSPB reserves at Gwenffwrd and Dinas. There is also a local Red Squirrel and Pine Marten reintroduction project ongoing.
Dalarwen has five bedrooms to sleep nine, three of which have lake views: two doubles; two twins (one with bunk-beds); and one single. All bed linen and towels are provided. There are two bathrooms with showers, plus an extra wash-room downstairs. All hot water is provided by the Oil Range in the Kitchen with an immersion heater for backup. Downstairs there is a basic Kitchen with the Oil Range and a Gas Cooker as well. There is workspace and enough pots, pans, crockery and utensils for 9 people. There is also a Fridge with Freezer compartment and cold storage in the back lobby. The spacious living room contains a wood burning stove set in a large inglenook fireplace, and we have a large dining room and conservatory. Logs for the wood-burner are provided free in a lean-to outside. Outside there is a lawn and sitting-out area directly overlooking the lake.
There is plenty of entertainment provided for rainy days in the form of books; jigsaws; board-games and even an electric piano.
Please Note, Dalarwen is very remote:
We also have no mains water or electricity and our solar panels and generator can not cope with very high demands, although there will be more than ample for basic needs such as lighting, hot water, battery chargers etc.
Additionally the Spring water is not treated and you may wish to bring your own bottled water. We must also apologise, but due to our location we can not accommodate any pets.
