A fantastic shepherds hut enjoying magnificent country views by day, stargazing at night, with a character interior and a superb outside space, enjoy the best glamping experience any time of the year.

Tucked away on a picturesque hillside overlooking the Wye Valley, this stunning shepherd’s hut is the perfect romantic retreat for couples. With far-reaching views, unbridled tranquillity and clear night skies, this idyllic property allows you to unwind and relax in style. Nestled between the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the east, Wentwood Forest to the south and the Brecon Beacons National Park to the north, outdoor enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice when it comes to planning exciting adventures. This exquisite, handmade shepherd’s hut is one of two at this location and offers couples a luxurious glamping experience. Stepping inside, you’ll find yourself in the cosy living area with a comfortable bed to the right, a wood burner in the centre and a compact, yet well-equipped, kitchen to the left. Windows are thoughtfully placed to ensure you have countryside views in all directions. An excellent shower room and WC within the hut itself offers the ultimate luxury. Outside, there’s a hammock from which to appreciate the rural soundtrack, an additional outside kitchen, a charcoal BBQ and a fire pit. There is also an honesty shop on site offering local produce. There are plenty of walks from your doorstep, but should you venture further afield, you can enjoy walks above the Severn Estuary in Wentwood Forest, along country tracks in the Southeast corner of the Brecon Beacons and beside the River Wye in the Wye Valley AONB. Cyclists will also enjoy these settings as they offer mountain biking and road cycling opportunities, and canoeing on the River Wye is a must. History lovers are catered for with Tintern Abbey and Chepstow Castle within 15 miles, whilst the small historic town of Usk is 3 miles away with its castle and a range of independent shops and eateries.

These Shepherds huts are in the most beautiful and peaceful location. A little difficult to find but all part of the excitement and adventure. Lovely welcome from Nick and Hettie the retriever. Accommodation was perfect with everything you would ned for outdoor lining without actually being fully outdoors. Will certainly be going back.

The hut is incredibly warm and cosy and we both had a wonderful time. The scenery and the surrounding area is absolutely stunning. You are isolated and away from all the hustle and bustle but not too far away that you can't easily get to local amenities etc. I would thoroughly recommend this to anybody. Our hosts were amazing, they were so accommodRead moreating and friendly. Hide

We have just returned from a long weekend stay in the shepherds hut with our miniature dachshund. We absolutely loved it and genuinely could not find fault with anything! Nick ensured we had no problems and had great local knowledge for walks. As an added bonus you get the delight of Hetty ( the resident K9) who is an absolute gem and plays so wellRead more with other dogs. We will definitely be returning and can't wait to book again!

Our stay in the Shephards hut was perfect, Nick and Rebecca were so lovely and made us feel so at home. The hut is so cosy and the views were amazing. Our Labrador, Max got on so well with Hettie, I think he is a little love sick since being home! We will definitely be back and have recommended to all of our friends!
