Set in the ancient hay meadows of the Welsh border, these hand-crafted shepherd’s huts offer a truly unique romantic getaway. Relax in the wood-fired hot tub or toast marshmallows over the fire pit, admiring the panoramic views of the Black Mountains. Embrace a slower pace of life and a digital detox surrounded by a plethora of peaceful walking trails. The popular market town of Hay-on-Wye is just 7 miles away, with independent shops, eateries, and bookstores to equip you for your romantic retreat. These beautiful shepherd’s huts are charmingly rustic, with wrought iron details, reused scaffold boards and antique furnishings. After a day of walking, cook up a warming meal in the kitchen area using the gas stove or even the fire pit outside where you can watch the sunset. Snuggle up by the wood burner in the evening with your favourite book or play cards at the pull-out dining table. The second hut is home to a convenient wet-room-style shower, while the third hut has an eco-friendly composting loo. Have sunny BBQs using the fire pit looking out over the picturesque meadows, then fire up the hot tub and soak under the stars. After you’ve explored the trails surrounding the huts, head to Hay and hire bikes to go mountain biking. You can also hire canoes to take out on the River Wye, go wild swimming, or spend an afternoon fishing. Wander through the cobbled streets of Hay, admiring the Georgian architecture, or visit the famous annual literary festival in May. Discover the beauty of the Brecons with walks in the Black Mountains or up the Black Hill with breathtaking views from the summit.

We visited the hideaway in June 2021 and absolutely loved our time at the Shepherd's hut. Luckily the weather was amazing for the duration of our 4 night stay - but I'm sure it would have been relaxing either way. The facilities were great, the accommodation is well thought out and the location is incredibly peaceful. There's also so much to do neaRead morer by - we went canoeing, hiking and gorge walking in the Brecon beacons, as well as shopping, swimming and eating in Hay on Wye. Hide

This was an absolutely perfect location to get away from the modern world. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed sitting by the fires talking and enjoying the nature around. We would definitely return and it has made us want to live off the grid :) loved it!!!!
