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.
Situated in front of the owner’s traditional longhouse, discover wonderful walks straight from the door through woodland and fields, escaping the stresses and strains of modern life. With glorious views across the fields towards the Epynt Mountain and the valley below, sit with a coffee and enjoy breakfast as the sun comes up over the Welsh countryside.
Stylish with patterned soft furnishings and doors to open to the elements on warm evenings, this hut makes for a unique sleeping experience waking to stunning views. Dine at the pull-out table and chairs before curling up in one of the cosy chairs and chatting in front of the flickering flames of the wood burner. Outside, the garden has pretty borders and a patio, perfect for morning coffee or an evening BBQ, taking a moment to stargaze on a clear night. Dine alfresco on your private balcony, spotting wildlife as you sip morning coffee. Sizzle up a BBQ and roast marshmallows over the fire pit in the evenings under starry skies.
