These romantic shepherds’ huts are hidden away in a clearing in the woods up above the owner’s medieval farm, surrounded by nature and beautiful views across the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Plan that romantic escape you’ve always talked about and treat your partner to a holiday in the Brecon Beacons. Nestled amongst sweeping countryside, pretty streams and stunning mountain ranges just 2.5 miles from Crickhowell, this duo of converted shepherd’s huts provide quirky accommodation for couples in rural splendour. With stylish washing and dining facilities in one property and a cosy sleeping nook in the other, this meadow setting guarantees a unique stay. On an evening, the night sky is perfect for stargazing with a glass of wine by the fire pit. Peaceful, private and boasting everything you could need to relax in style, the huts enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, ideal for al fresco suppers on the patio. Inside the first hut is a chic space with a wood burner for cosy nights. There’s a double bed, a table and seating, but right next door your adjoining property is equipped with a shower room and an excellent kitchen that has a stove, oven and fridge. You’ll have over 30 acres of farmland to explore and resident animals to greet, and the friendly owners are available should you need anything. Embrace the array of scenic trails leading through natural farmland and head in the direction of Crickhowell, a charming market town that boasts shops, eateries and impressive castle ruins. The Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal is a beautiful route to cycle along with a picnic lunch, or why not charter a boat to discover the fabulous vistas. The River Usk offers riverside walks and delicious picnics, but it is also a great location for fishermen to cast their line for wild salmon and trout. Abergavenny 6 miles away is home to a popular annual food festival and a selection of restaurants.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

"BLUE" The Chef & Shower Hut : A gas stove and hob, sink, small fridge, storage space, cutlery, crockery and everything else you would need to rustle up a decent meal at one end, alongside breakfast bar and stools. The other end houses the proper shower, flushing loo, a basin and soft fluffy towels. There is a separate door into each end.

"BELLE" The Snoozing Hut - sleeping two, plus a young baby (please provide your own travel cot). A wood burner with logs included, double bed with fresh cotton bedding, two fire side chairs and table.

THE GARDEN: Set within hundreds of acres of natural farmland, the huts are totally private and sit within their own fenced copse, there are no other shepherds huts around...although friendly owners if you need help are close at hand on the farm. There is an outdoor table and bench as well as a lovely fire pit...plenty of logs available.

PRACTICAL STUFF: Hot water from the gas boiler, light from the solar panels, heaps of cleverly designed storage for bags and boots, thick inches of sheeps wool insulation keeping it warm all year. Basics, including soap, loo paper and cleaning materials are included, as is all bedlinen and towels. Guests are welcome to use power sockets from an outbuilding at the owner's farm.

PETS: A well behaved dog is really welcome. Please bring your dog's bed with you. The small field that the huts are in is not 100% fenced for pets. Please be mindful of other animals on site during your stay.

INFANTS: Infants are welcome - please provide own travel cot.

PACK YOUR BOOTS : There's a wonderful farm to explore, so welly boots are well worth packing!

ARRIVAL :  4pm. The views are amazing and there is a short walk to the huts from the car, so it is well worth trying to arrive at the huts during daylight hours, so you can appreciate the miles of stunning countryside. Torches and lanterns are available for those who are making a later dash to the hills from the office.

HOLIDAY PREPARATION: We would advise to contact local amenities directly, such as shops, restaurants, pubs and attractions, to confirm the latest opening times and availability.

We had a lovely weekend here. It is a stunning location and the huts have everything you need for a cosy getaway. The fire keeps the bedroom toastie warm and the kitchen and bathroom are well kitted out. I was surprised how hot the water was for the shower!

Loved our stay in these cosy huts. No distractions from internet or tv, just lots of cosy fires, rest and relaxation. You dont get to do that very often. Very clean, with good kitchen facilities and a warm shower. The huts are ideally based for good walks with Sugar Loaf being very close by. Will come back

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
