The roaring wood burner sets the scene for pure relaxation whilst the charming kitchenette will inspire you to whip up something delicious with your fantastic local produce.

We greatly enjoyed our days in this lovely hut. Although there is no connection to the electric grid, it has enough energy supplied by a solar panel to keep some LED lights on and recharge your mobile phones. There is good water supply (non drinkable). A small stove and shower with hot water are powered by gas. The location of the hut gives you a fRead moreantastic view of the valley of the River Wye. If you want to find a secluded place to enjoy silence and stargazing, this is an excellent option. Hide
