Eco-Cabins at CAT


The Eco-Cabins, located in the hills of beautiful mid-Wales, offer a unique residential experience whereby the residents monitor and take responsibility for their energy use during their stay. The electricity is provided by wind, water, solar power and bio-fuels, and waste water and sewage is filtered through a reed beds sewage system. Each cabin is heated by solar water heating panels and woodstoves. There are two cabins, each with eighteen bed spaces, and a two-night minimum stay. These are self-catering units, but meals may be booked in the vegetarian restaurant at CAT. Part of the fee includes free entrance to the Centre for Alternative Technology for the duration of the stay.

Cost is per Eco-Cabin per night; March to October £275 per cabin, November to February £255 per cabin. Meals and bedding are extra. Activities run by CAT education officers can be booked in advance.
