À propos de ce logement
Be under no illusion this is like camping under a wooden roof .
Boatel guests share the boat roofed shed with other guests and residents and no one has exclusivity on this structure.
The boat is old and dusty with the occasional spider.
An unusual/ quirky experience!!
The views are stunning
Sorry no dogs
Want to see shed of the year 2013 winner?? its now on channel 4 demand . amazing spaces shed of the year first series episode 3 final (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)
Set in an acre of wild flowers and up a mountain .
Set in the beautiful Dyfi Valley Biosphere the Boatel is literally a bed in a boat! Not to mention a beautiful open plan cooking and living space – all in a shed AKA the Boat Roofed Shed. Recognised for its amazing and unique qualities, it even won the infamous Cuprinol’s Shed of the Year in 2013. It’s our absolute pride and joy and we love sharing it with our guests!
We’ve hosted comedy festivals, exclusive concerts and curious tourists in our little mountain hideaway and Alex (aka DJ Badly) even uses it to prepare his sets for festivals such as Glastonbury.
We built the shed in 2012 using recycled materials and it was our first major project. Alex is normally a rubbish DIY person, so designing and building the whole thing ourselves was a great achievement and we couldn’t have been happier to win both the ‘Cuprinol Shed of the Year’ Unique Category and the Overall category in 2013.
From the shed you can see across Cader Idris (part of the Cambrian Mountains of Snowdonia). It’s so beautiful even in the maddest of weathers, you can close the door, light the candles ,pop some kindling in the wood burner and be snug and warm in moments.
Our guests all love staying in the Boatel - they love the peace, the location, the structure, the ambience, and the curios (Alex is a big collector and has been on antiques roadshow with his Poole Pottery collection!). As well as the relentless throwing of Frisbees for the dogs!

As much or as little as you like or think appropriate.
The field kitchen is in the boat shed which has a fridge and basic cooking facilities. You can either wash up al fresco or come to the house to wash up.
There is a compost loo and an outdoor solar powered shower which is attached to the back of the house that you access via the back or front garden and an outside flushing toilet. You are also welcome to use the loo and shower in the house too.
It is very peaceful here, ( and occasionally windy)
You’ll need to bring your own towels.
Please note that we have our own private water supply from a spring. Our water is ultra violet and particulate filtered before it leaves the tap!

We are a very remote farmhouse and recycle as much as we can.
