With a stunning panoramic view down the whole length of the Bryn Awr Valley to the Brecon Beacons - one of the loveliest vistas in Wales.

The first hut has picture windows on both sides and pastel-shaded panelled walls, whilst its blissfully soft double bed has generous storage space beneath.

PACK YOUR BOOTS : There's a wonderful farm to explore, so welly boots are well worth packing!
