Get back to nature at this luxurious and surprisingly spacious shepherd’s hut at the base of the Black Mountains, an ideal romantic getaway close to Hay-on-Wye.

This characterful hut is well designed to comfortably accommodate two people. Set in an idyllic countryside location, you can enjoy pure tranquillity by soaking up the views or explore the walks straight onto the Black Mountains. Just half a mile away you can visit Pwll Wrach Woods and waterfall, a stunning 43-acre nature reserve. Talgarth is 2 miles away, home to an award-winning mill, shops and a selection of pubs and independent eateries.

The property is very well designed and has plenty of room. The tasteful kitchen space has a two ring hob, a toaster, a microwave and a fridge. There is also a dining table and chairs to enjoy your meals together. A comfy sofa folds down into a double size bed, which can be either left out or folded away for more space. The external shower room has a spacious standalone shower, WC and basin.

Outside the hut will really take your breath away – it’s set in a truly stunning location with a private lake and arboretum as well as meadowland and woodland to explore. You will be surrounded by dramatic views across the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons. The property has a small, enclosed space with picnic bench and BBQ for enjoying a summer’s evening outside. There is also plenty of parking available and you can book this property along with a neighbouring hut for larger group getaways.

The Brecon Beacons is a vast, mountainous and rural region of Wales. Stretching 42 miles from east to west and covering an area of 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons is dominated by the National Park of the same name. Split into three main areas, the Black Mountain in the west, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr in the middle, and the Black Mountains in the east; each is a wild, bold and inspiring place to visit on holiday. With 1232 miles of public trails which includes the 95-mile-long Beacons Way, it’s a wayfarer’s delight. One of four Dark Skies Reserves in the UK (and one of 11 in the world), stargazers can delight in the open night sky, to enjoy the darkness in full splendour. The Fforest Fawr is a UNESCO Global Geopark because of its important geology and a need to conserve and protect the area from negative over development.

Stay at a self-catering cottage in the mountains and cascading woodlands or out on the moors; you can also stay in one of the Brecon Beacon’s lovely towns like Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Llangorse or Brecon. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a choice of easy to challenging treks up and around Sugar Loaf Mountain, Carn Pica, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad, Pen y Fan, or Hatterall Ridge (and many more besides). Take in uniquely Welsh attractions like Dan-yr-Ogof (the National Showcaves Centre for Wales), The Big Pit Mining Museum, Llanthony Priory, Carreg Cennen Castle, Fourteen Locks, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. Wildlife abounds in the Brecon Beacons, and it’s a great place to spot red kites and discover the successful story of their reintroduction to the UK’s skies at the Red Kite Centre. There’s so much to do for outdoor lovers and extreme sports fans here, so why not book your self-catering holiday in the Brecon Beacons today?

Our holiday cottages across the Brecon Beacons have been carefully selected. From dog-friendly cottages in the countryside to large farmhouses on the mountainsides and everything in between, we have a holiday in the Brecon Beacons to suit you.
