A deceptively spacious shepherd hut with wood burner, for couples seeking a rural bolthole in the heart of the Mid-Wales countryside with walks from the doorstep.

Escape to Mid Wales for a romantic getaway for two with this delightful shepherd hut. Inside, find stylish interiors, a cosy wood burner and a clever use of space, with a private balcony and garden complete with BBQ, firepit and breathtaking views outside. If you can drag yourselves away from the hut, take a yoga or textile class with the host or explore the surrounding woodland, fields and villages on foot.

 

Set in the grounds of the owner’s property, this cedar-clad shepherd hut has been beautifully designed to offer stylish and comfortable open-plan accommodation and a clever use of space. Rustle up romantic meals for two in the compact yet well-equipped kitchen area before dining at the pull-out table while enjoying views across the valley. When it gets chilly, fire up the wood burner and curl up on one of the cosy chairs or snuggle under the hand-crocheted blanket on the inviting king-size bed. Outside, a private balcony is furnished with a bistro-style table and chairs for romantic sunset meals, while the garden area below is equipped with a BBQ and fire pit –perfect for evenings spent stargazing under clear skies or spotting resident barn owls.

 

With glorious views across the fields towards the Epynt Mountain and the valley below, this quirky 18-foot lodge is perfect for keen walkers. Set out on foot to explore the many wonderful walks that lie on the doorstep, or discover the Elan Valley (8 miles) where you will find picturesque picnic spots. The village of Cilmery (2.5 miles) is home to a popular pub and request-stop train station for the Heart of Wales Railway Line, while nearby Builth Wells (6 miles) offers a good choice of shops and eateries.

Highly recommend staying at the shepherds hut, it has all you could possibly need and more for your stay. The hosts have thought of everything to help your stay more relaxing and hassle free. The location is perfect for peace and quiet and there are many local walks on your doorstep. The Elan valley is only a short drive away and is well worth the Read moretrip. Hide

Map
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.
