Every aspect of your good night’s sleep has been thought of at fforest. 

All accommodation has their own private, decked area with outdoor seating & kitchen.  All of the basics are provided to rustle-up simple meals. We’ve thought hard about the furnishings, using ethically sourced materials and local products which blend function with form. We hope you agree; we’ve tried to think of everything. 

Guests staying in fforest accommodation have access to the cedar wood, farmyard & woodland shower block as well as the 'Beauty Barn' with sockets, mirrors & dressing tables.

Have a look through our range of accommodation to decide which is best for you.


Garden Shac

We've designed the Garden Shacs to provide simple, characterful accommodation with flexibility for families, friend & couples.

They are in an idyllic setting in the farmyard area overlooking the raised bed gardens.

Sleeps up to 6



Hill Shac

Lots of guests who come and stay with us do so in extended family groups or with close friends.
Our Hill Shacs are ideal with two families with two sleeping cabins and a covered, outdoor central kitchen area, Mums and Dads end up together having a glass of wine on the deck whilst the kids rattle around in the field in front.

Sleeps up to 8 guests



Crog loft

Simplicity, luxury, beauty. But still outdoor living.

Bwthyn Crogloft is the Welsh name for a traditional type of crofter’s cottage.
Our take on this traditional form are the crog lofts. Each of the four cottages can accommodate up to four adults or a family of four and combines the fforest outdoor experience with the comforts of a boutique hotel.

Sleeps 4

Onsen Dome

The onsen domes are part of our new accommodation for 2019. They take year-round comfort and engagement with the outdoors to a new level.

Everyone loves our domes - the solid wood floors, wood-burning stoves, bespoke furnishings and beautiful countryside views from the giant bay window. Now we have added more with a private indoor shower & WC, dining area, fridge and power sockets

The outside is where the magic really happens as they each have a Japanese style outdoor bathroom complete with shower, basin and sunken, cast concrete Oforu soaking tub for two.

Sleeps 2

The dome, made famous at fforest, with its solid wood floor, wood-burning stove, bespoke furnishings and the view from that giant bay window.

Our Domes each have their own individual surroundings in either a field or woodland setting with the showers/WCs a short walk away.

They have a king size bed, two futon camp beds and are set on their own decked area with an equipped camp kitchen & seating area.

Sleeps up to 4



Kata cabin

The Kata cabins at fforest farm are located along the field boundaries tucked into the trees, bushes and wildflowers. Each Kata deck has plenty of room for lounging and offers uninterrupted views of the landscape, with plenty of space out front for children to run around in safety.

It's our own design - a bespoke solid frame; a gas stove and overhead light dome, making it lighter, brighter and warmer, when it's needed.

Sleeps up to 5 guests
