Hergest Lee cabin was designed to mirror the curves of Hanter Hill opposite, sitting harmoniously within the rural Welsh landscape. The cabin was designed and built by the owner Paul Gent, he also hand crafted all the fitted elements in the cabin himself, from the kitchen units and cupboards to the staircase, all joinery, floating bed and bathroom unit to create a continuity of style and tone.

The Cabin

Through the living space past the rest room to your right you will find the master bedroom with it's king size bed and soft linen sheets, it's a tranquil space to take time out. The bedroom has a free standing antique roll top bath overlooking the hill. The perfect place to relax after a long walk. The bedroom has a small cupboard to hang some clothes and attractive box storage over the bed.

To the right of the bed is a shower/wet room with a sink. 

Outside the cabin there is a small decked area and enclosed garden to sit and enjoy your morning coffee. We have also provided a fire pit/ grill (sorry we don't provide fire wood but the garage in Kington sells this).

There is a predominantly Mid Century feel to the interior design with the simple lines of Ercol 203 chairs and the soft leather of the Stouby sofa, with some eccentric additions sourced from local artists and antique fairs.The colour palette is a muted shade of greys, browns and blues taking inspiration from Edwardian drawing rooms.

All cabins are designed with environmental considerations in mind, they have a continuous insulation layer to avoid thermal bridging are wrapped in a breathable membrane to virtually eliminate draughts and to allow for the structure to breathe. Made using cedar from a local Welsh sawmill and using polystyrene instead of polyisocyanurate board (Kingspan, Celotex) due to its considerably lower environmental impact. All paints, wood stains and varnishes are natural and breathable. It’s heated using infrared panels which are 40% more efficient than other forms of electrical heating.

The cabin can be sold as a stand alone unit, read more Here

The Lean-To was built on to the North end of an old threshing barn in Burlingjobb, Powys, Wales. Surrounded by soft green hills and poetic ridges straddling the Anglo-Welsh border. The black exterior cedar cladding was designed to be in keeping with the original cladding of the old barn but updated in a modern way. The whole build was designed and made by the owner, architectural designer Paul Gent (www.paul-c-gent.com) Paul also designed and made all the fitted elements inside the lean to, including, Kitchen, Windows/doors and bed, storage and staircase, to create a continuity of style and tone. 

Enter the bi-fold doors into the open plan living space with double hight ceiling,

A feeling of space has been created in a relatively small footprint by the use of high ceilings. The use of vertical lines in the floating staircase extend the space and draw the eye upward. 

The building was made using a timber frame, cedar cladding on the exterior which has been charred using the Japanese Shou Sugi Ban technique. The black timber was continued inside on the interior beams and windows. 

 to your right you will see the kitchen area, this has everything you need to make delicious meals. induction hob, full size Smeg oven, toaster, manual espresso machine and a small fridge (sorry no freezer).

To the right of the floating double staircase you will find the sunken bath, the perfect place to relax after a long day exploring and the other side you will find the master bedroom, this has a comfy king size bed with natural linen bedclothes, box storage shelves and beautiful Ib Kofad Larsson head board.

The colour palette inside shows deep rich colours such as brown and black, very dark colours contrasted with the soft pink micro cement floor and birch ply walls. The furniture has a mid century theme with pieces from Ib Kofad Larssen, Arne Jacobsen and Guy Rogers. We like the timeless element of this classic style of furniture, but also the sleek, modern aesthetic juxtaposed with interesting antiques and oddities. There is a charred black statement staircase which is the focal piece of the room.  

We provide wine, flowers, olive oil, vinegar and tea and coffee. If you would like to book an arrival hamper for an extra charge we can arrange this, please get in touch.
