Enjoying spellbinding views over a beautiful corner of the Brecon Beacons, this light and cheerful shepherd’s hut makes a fantastic glamping destination for couples in search of a romantic retreat in a secluded spot at the heart of the Welsh countryside. Offering cosy accommodation for two guests (with space in a crog loft to sleep two children), this stylishly handcrafted railway carriage-themed getaway is built from Welsh oak and red cedar, and is set on a remote working farm in a breathtaking Dark Skies reserve. Featuring a hot tub and a wood burner, the hut is a fabulous base for walkers discovering lush woodlands and breathtaking valleys, with fishing rights included along the river.

This Property was brilliant! They had everything you could want there so no need to pack anything but clothes and some food. Was super dog-friendly. Being set on a large field made it perfect for my dog to walk around whilst we are at the cabin. The hosts made sure the place was spotless for us and they included booklets with local shops, restauranRead morets, etc, and all things you can do in the area. They had a large bowl and a small one for your dog with a stand. There was plenty of room inside. The bed was super comfy! And they supplied plenty of BBQ and log burner supplies to keep you going for a good week . We have already booked our next stay with them next month ! Very very happy with our stay and would recommend to anyone Hide

Perfect location and really enjoyed the hot tub. Some soft seats would be a bonus but overall a great glamping experience - there was a wasp nest in the left of the drive in the bank just for info

Lovely stay at the Mallard. Bed was very comfy, used the hot tub and the BBQ facilities. Bathroom was good and shower had hot running water. Check-in very easy, property was left open for us to arrive. Was perfect for our 3 night stay in Wales. About half an hour drive from attractions such as Pen-Y-Fan and Zip World.
