Excellent 5/5 Score from 2 reviews

Bluebells in Porthouse Woods

Log cabin | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 8

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome

Enjoy a relaxing holiday in a cabin in the woods in mid-Wales. Our two self-catering cabins are located in lovely Welsh countryside, near the market town of Newtown, overlooking the River Severn.

The cabins are set in 10 acres of private mature woodland full of wildlife and flowers (bluebells in the spring) and there is access to free fishing in the River Severn included. The cabins are also on the Montgomeryshire Canal, and the towpath is now a popular cycle route as well as being part of the Severn Way. It is only a 10 minute walk to the local nature reserve. Or why not walk to Dolforwyn Castle - a romantic ruin with views up and down the valley.

This is an excellent base for walking, cycling and fishing holidays. Ideal for families looking for a good value break. There is lots to do in the local area, including visiting Powis castle, Lake Vyrnwy (RSPB) and Montgomeryshire Nature Reserves or walk to the local castle. Pets welcome.

Each cabin sleeps a maximum of 4 people. We have two cabins, so if the dates you are looking for are marked unavailable do contact us as the other cabin may be available. Larger groups or two families might want to consider booking both cabins and have the whole place to themselves.

The Powys/Brecon Beacons region

Mid-Wales is a relatively undiscovered area of beautiful countryside with rolling hills and farmland. The area is home to the source of both the River Severn and River Wye, and there is lots to see and do. Powis castle is nearby with its fabulous gardens, or you can walk to the ruins of Dolforwyn castle, or take a trip back in time to the beautifully unspoilt town of Montgomery.


Newtown is a traditional Welsh market town, on the banks of the River Severn. As well as a variety of shops and its indoor market, there is an art gallery, Robert Owen Museum and Textile Museum to visit. There is also a cinema and lots of pubs and restaurants as well as a bowling alley.
