  • A romantic hideaway nestled within a bluebell woodland
  • Explore the gloriously green Usk Valley
  • A perfect secluded spot for walks, camp fires and escaping reality
Property code: 44128

Nestled in ancient woodland, this aptly named hut overlooking the dramatic Usk Valley is wonderfully green and calm with a riot of bluebells carpeting the floor each spring. Off grid luxury and romance in complete seclusion and with your own private wood fired hot tub. A short drive and you're in the pretty town of Monmouth which has greengrocers, artisan delicatessens, bookshops and a wine merchant .

Take a drive through the Wye Valley, noting the Michelin restaurants as you go and within a matter of minutes you’ll find yourself in Tintern, with its awe - inspiring 12th Century ruins,Tintern Abbey . Spend days exploring the area with picnic or paddle in hand, explore ancient ruins, high wires and cycle routes in the nearby Forest of Dean, or stride out for the mountains in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Back up at the hut, sunshine dapples through the canopy, views stretch out for miles, sheep graze and if you’re lucky deer bound past. There’s every reason not to venture far at all. A giant of a shepherds hut, every comfort has been considered, from the cosiest of king-size cabin beds, warmest of wood burning stoves and lashings of hot water in the shower. There’s a hammock for lazy days and a fire pit for the obligatory camp fire…the mildest of wild adventures in the beautiful Welsh countryside! Now with a new addition of a wood fired hot tub.
