CAT is a fully licensed wedding venue – and with an experienced events team we can offer bespoke, tailor-made weddings to suit your budget.

Plan your ceremony in the iconic Sheppard Theatre, watched by your loved ones, before enjoying a wedding breakfast lovingly prepared by our talented vegetarian chefs.

Free access to the Visitor Centre is included, and offers attractions for your guests, a treat for children and adults alike. We can include a site tour of the site, gardens and explore the different eco buildings here.

We can cater for up to 100 guests for the wedding breakfast, and up to 180 guests for the evening reception.

If you prefer to supply your own food, we can offer room-only packages to suit your needs.

So, whether you prefer an intimate celebration or the party of a lifetime, we are here to help you with your plans.

Wedding Reception

The adjacent Theatre Foyer offers the perfect space for a band and your memorable first dance.

A truly sustainable event

CAT’s WISE building has impressive eco credentials and has been beautifully constructed using responsibly sourced and environmentally friendly materials.

The Sheppard Theatre, CAT’s licensed venue, is a stunning circular auditorium with 7-high, rammed earth walls and tiered seating for up to 130 guests.

A full-height sliding door and mechanical disk shutter in the ceiling open to provide plenty of natural light.

The building is heated by biomass and the bedrooms are serviced with hot water from solar-thermal panels on the roof.


Proudly Vegetarian

Breakfast, lunch and evening meals are available within the CAT Café, a popular and comfortable wholefood vegetarian café. Ingredients are locally sourced where possible and freshly grown produce from the CAT gardens are delivered to the kitchen daily by our gardeners.


The 24 twin and double en-suite bedrooms offer stunning views across 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. All bedrooms are serviced with solar-thermally heated showers and basins and are heated by CAT’s on-site biomass facilities.


Stunning Setting

Set in the internationally recognised UNESCO Dyfi Biosphere

Our WISE building is set in the heart of the visitor centre and at the base of the quarry trail walk, which takes you up into the foothills in South Snowdonia National Park through our sustainably managed woodlands. Climb to the top for beautiful photo opportunities.
