Get away from it all on a digital detox in this picturesque bolthole in the heart of the Welsh countryside. The pair of shepherd huts are for your exclusive use, and are tucked away in a remote location within the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons). You’ll have a myriad of walks to explore from your front door, or simply sit in the private garden and admire the breathtaking views. For shopping and dining out, journey to Abergavenny, Brecon, or Hay-on-Wye, all of which are within 22 miles.

The accommodation is arranged across two idyllic, hand-crafted shepherd’s huts. The first hut is decorated in calming, pastel shades, and features a sumptuous double bed and armchairs arranged next to a cosy wood burner. The adjoining second hut is where you’ll find the fully-fitted kitchen, for rustling up tasty dinners for two, along with a cleverly designed shower room. Immediately outside the huts is a private garden, with outdoor furniture, panoramic views, and a firepit for romantic evenings under the stars. The surrounding 30 acres of land are a haven of tranquillity, with bluebell meadows in spring, picturesque walking trails, and friendly farm animals.

The pretty town of Crickhowell is 2.5 miles away and has a great range of pubs and coffee shops to refuel in after a long walk. You’ll find many interesting walks branching away from the town, heading deep into the magnificent Black Mountains. The bustling town of Abergavenny (6 miles) is also well worth a visit, particularly if you want to try some of the local fare. You’ll find many independent restaurants, as well as regular farmers’ markets showcasing delicious local produce. For water sports enthusiasts, a visit to Llangorse Lake (13 miles) is a must, where you can hire canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards.

  • 1 double bed in the sleeping hut that’s named ‘Belle’
  • 1 shower room with a shower and a flushing WC
  • A gas stove and hob, sink, small fridge, storage space, cutlery and crockery
  • The bathroom and kitchen are both housed in the Chef & Shower Hut named ‘Blue’. There is a separate door into each end

  • Hot water from the gas boiler, light from the solar panels, sheep's wool insulation keeping it warm all year
  • Set within hundreds of acres of natural farmland, the huts are totally private and sit within their own fenced copse
  • There is an outdoor table and bench as well as a lovely fire pit
  • Off-road parking
  • There is a walk to the huts from the car, so it is well worth trying to arrive during daylight hours to take in the miles of stunning countryside as you approach
  • Torches and lanterns are available for those who are making a later dash to the hills from the office
  • Pub 1 mile, shop 3 miles
  • The small field that the huts are in is not enclosed for pets. If you are bringing a dog, please be mindful of other animals on-site during your stay
  • Arrival: 16:00 onwards
  • Departure: before 10:00, unless otherwise stated in your arrival details

What an amazing place! The sleeping hut was incredibly comfortable and there was plenty of space due to three immense drawers beneath the bed and the fact that the bathroom and kitchen are in a separate hut. The kitchen had everything we needed and more, and the shower was super-powerful with plenty of hot water. As to the views...wow! Huge thanks Read moreto Graham and Daisy, who were really friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Our only complaint is that the week went by too quickly! Hide
