This locally crafted Shepherds Hut is perfect for a relaxing, romantic holiday. Wonderfully secluded in its own field on the outskirts of Talybont on Usk, escape the bustle of everyday life with a holiday to remember.

Rural and peaceful, this delightful hut is close to Talybont on Usk, with its four pubs, shop & post office, and coffee shop. With views over the meadows to the Usk Valley, The Allt and the Black Mountains, you’ll truly be immersed in beautiful countryside. From the door, walk along the pretty brook or onto the Taff Trail used by walkers and mountain bikers. The Henry Vaughan Walk along The Brinoyre Tram Road is a gentle stroll through the historic Talybont Valley, or climb a number of footpaths up to the Beacons. Hire a kayak and paddle the Brecon and Monmouth Canal, or walk along the River Wye and the River Usk. With Crickhowell and Brecon within 10 miles and boasting cafes, pubs, restaurants and small independent shops, there is something for everyone.


With the accommodation consisting of the hut and a purpose built, small barn for the kitchen, dining and shower room, it is easy to relax into country life. The hut itself is charming with a comfy double bed with luxurious linen, an antique oak Welsh settle, and a handy cupboard to store belongings making the most of the cosy space. The wood burner is perfect for creating a snug, romantic ambience, and for warming chilly toes. A few steps away from the shepherd’s hut is the purpose-built barn with kitchen, dining and shower room. The kitchen has a sink, fridge, microwave and electric hob, and a dining table and chairs to enjoy your meals in space and comfort. There is also plenty of useful information and maps about the area to help plan your days. The shower room contains a toilet, basin and walk-in shower.


The garden encompasses both the hut and the barn, and there's little better than cooking on the fire pit after a long day in the mountains. Make the most of the weather morning, noon and night by dining alfresco at the picnic table. There is off-road parking.

Beautiful, peaceful and private setting. It has everything you need. Nice walk by the canal, or through the fields and by the river. Up by the reservoir and the waterfall too.

I have returned to Cui shepherds hut on five occassions and can not wait until my next visit in the New Year! It is a special place in a very special location. To have found a haven like Cui in one of my favourite areas in the world is a dream come true! It's magic!

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.
