For a holiday quite literally off the beaten track, visit this charming shepherd’s hut. Located in a field in the Black Mountains, this property is the perfect place for outdoor enthusiasts. The surrounding area is beautiful and perfect for scenic hikes. It would be a great retreat for a couple, a place which is secluded, and you can really connect.

Start off in the main hut. This is a one-room cabin, which combines a lounge, diner and kitchenette into one space, with a king-size bed on one side. The place is warmed by a wood burner and is decorated with plenty of wood to match! Head over to the other structure, where you’ll find a shower and WC. If you’d like to dine outside, try out the tented dining area, which is covered to keep everything nice and dry. On crisp nights and summer afternoons, light up the fire pit and use the tripod BBQ. There’s seating all around, so you can stretch out in the warmth.

The property is around 2 miles from Hay-on-Wye, a lovely little town with lots to offer. The history is fascinating, so visit the castle to learn about the area’s historic significance. If you’d like a holiday read, amble around the famous independent bookshops, then find a tasty treat at one of the local cafes. Hay-on-Wye has an annual festival every May, so look out for connected events. Another big attraction is the landscape in which you’ll be staying, which is picturesque and perfect for cycling and walking.

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
