About Centre For Alternative Technology

Nestled in the stunning UNESCO Dyfi Biosphere in Mid Wales, The Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) is a world-renowned eco centre that demonstrates practical solutions for a sustainable future.

Discover a hidden world, packed full of working examples of renewable energy, beautiful organic gardens, experimental green buildings and sustainably managed woodland habitats.

VEGETARIAN CAFE
As a large outdoor attraction with plenty of space for the whole family to explore, we’re confident in delivering a great day out while keeping your safety and the safety of our staff a top priority. Grab a picnic from CAT’s vegetarian café and find perfect spot for lunch - in the woods, overlooking the gardens of in front of a jaw-dropping view of the valley below.

QUARRY TRAIL WALK
Entertain the whole family
Entertain the whole family
Now a thriving haven for wildlife, the CAT site was once a Welsh slate quarry - signs of which can still be seen today. Weaving your way up through the broadleaf woodlands, three different trails of varying lengths allow access to never-before-seen areas of the CAT woodlands and gardens whilst offering spectacular views into the Snowdonia National Park. The Quarry Trail Walk offers glimpses into CAT’s slate heritage and the reservoir that feeds CAT’s off-grid water system.

WELLBEING & NATURE
Combining exciting practical skills with immersive wellbeing experiences, CAT truly is the home of sustainability education. Join a tour with one of CAT’s expert guides to dig a little deeper or come along to a day or week long course to explore everything from sustainable woodland management and nature connection to sustainable building practices and renewable energy (check website for tour availability).

Pre-booking before arrival is essential to help us ensure that everyone can socially distance.

Dogs welcome!
