Beautiful well equipped shepherds hut set in a stunning location with plenty of lovely walks and places to explore in the surrounding area! With no distractions such as internet, TV and music, it was just very peaceful and relaxing. We liked listening to the owl hooting and watching the bats flying around and looking at the amazing starry night skyRead more.

Lovely shepherd's hut in a secluded location. Inside was a real surprise - everything finished to a high standard with some lovely little touches. A very comfortable and cosy stay. Ensuite facilities made it feel even more luxurious. Would definitely recommend.

Bill's Shepherds Hut is lovely. It was clean and comfortable, and had every amenity we could need. We prepared all of our meals while we were there, and the small kitchen had everything we needed. It is set in a charming sheep field and close to the various attractions in the Brecon Beacons. It was the perfect place to stay for our weekend getaway,Read more and we would love to stay there again. I cannot think of a single critique - it is perfect. Hide
