Stay in an award-winning eco building in the foothills of the Snowdonia National Park for a different kind of get-away.

Situated in the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT), Europe’s leading eco centre, the WISE building has won numerous awards and accolades for its green credentials and beautiful architecture.

Simply furnished in a modern, uncluttered style, our en suite twin bedrooms offer stunning views into the Snowdonia National Park, and first floor rooms come with a shared garden terrace so you can really make the most of being in the heart of the Welsh countryside.

With 24 twin bedrooms available, we can accommodate large and small groups as well as individual bookings.

Breakfast, lunch and evening meals are available when pre-booked.
Stay with us during the school holidays and you can enjoy a wide range of special activities on offer at CAT free of charge – eco activities for kids, guided tours, talks, workshops and more.

Powered by renewables and built with nature in mind, WISE is easily accessible by road and only three miles from the friendly town of Machynlleth, which has regular rail services from Birmingham and Shrewsbury.
