Escape from it all with a romantic getaway in this stunning shepherd’s hut on the fringe of the Brecon Beacons National Park. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to walks and cycle rides in the area, with iconic landmarks such as Sugar Loaf and the Skirrid on your doorstep, as well as a whole host of cute country lanes to explore. You’ll also be just 3 miles from the vibrant market town of Abergavenny, with its fantastic selection of independent shops and eateries.
The cleverly designed shepherd’s hut sits within a cluster of similar, well-secluded properties. The open-plan living area feels surprisingly spacious, with great attention paid to every little detail, to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Elegant, exposed wood brings warmth and character to the space, finished beautifully with pretty soft furnishings and homely accessories. The living space is warm and inviting, thanks to the roaring wood burner and luxurious underfloor heating. The outdoor area is full of hidden treats, including a private hot tub to rest aching limbs after a long walk, a spectacular multi-jet shower and private sauna and a fire pit for toasting marshmallows under the stars.
Walking trails from the front door lead you to the foot of the Skirrid. The climb to the top is exhilarating and will reward you with 360-degree views across the Brecon Beacons, Malverns and the Forest of Dean. The atmospheric ruins of Llanthony Priory (11.5 miles) are breathtaking, particularly at dawn or dusk. It’s also a great spot for stargazing. Get in the holiday spirit with a visit to Sugar Loaf Vineyards (5.5 miles), located on the lower slopes of the famous mountain. Spend a relaxing afternoon sampling the Welsh wines and admiring the lush views over the Usk Valley.
