If your idea of bliss is to be tucked away with the one you love, (plus a pooch if you'd like to bring one) surrounded by nature and captivated by walks and views - then the Bluebell Huts are just for you!

Hand-crafted by Graham from local hillside timber,  Spring Farm's authentic shepherds' huts, winners of a county award, are set in a hawthorn-fringed meadow, which becomes a sea of bluebells in late Spring.  Wake up to a stunning panoramic view down the whole length of the Bryn Awr valley's steep wooded slopes to the Brecon Beacons on the far horizon - one of the loveliest vistas in all Wales.

The Bluebell Shepherds Huts are totally unique; upcycled, hand built and ethically sourced, each filled with creature comforts and luxury touches, setting them well on their way to becoming one of Wales most romantic honeymoon destinations.

Hut One's cosy living room has picture windows on both sides and pastel-shaded panelled walls, while its blissfully soft double bed has generous storage space beneath.  A table and two comfy armchairs complete the furnishings and in one corner there is a traditional wood stove (all logs and kindling provided) to keep you warm as toast in winter.

The adjoining second hut's two rooms comprise a fully-fitted kitchen, complete with stove, over and fridge and a separate bathroom with shower cubicle (ample hot water), wash basin and loo, both rooms being decorated in charming pastel colours.

PS: there are two village pubs within easy reach, if you'd like someone else to do the cooking!

The Bluebell Shepherds' Huts are positioned within 30 acres that make up Spring Farm.  This is home to Pip and Graham who will be on hand to welcome guests and will be available at the farmhouse (a short walk from the huts' private paddock) throughout your stay, with help and advice.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

MARKET TOWNS: Crickhowell, is just ten minutes drive away with great independent shops, pubs and coffee shops. In the market town of Abergavenny, you will find a Norman Castle, farmers markets and the fabulous Food Festival each September. Brecon, Hay on Wye, Cardiff and Hereford are all in easy reach, as well as Wales Industrial Heritate sites in Blaenavon.

WALKING & CYCLING: The walking and cycling trails are second to none, with stunning trails up the Sugar Loaf Mountain straight from the door and great adventures in the Black Mountains without getting in the car. There is a nearby SSSI ancient wet woodland too,with boardwalks across the bog, you can witness exceptional flora and fauna, as well as a deafening amount of native birdsong.

POSH NOSH: The Brecon Beacons and Abergavenny have some exceptionally good restaurants, all within easy reach. Our top local picks are: The Hardwick, Abergavenny, The Walnut Tree Inn, The Foxhunter or The Nantyffin. More details on our Things to Do page.

PUB GRUB: Four village pubs in easy reach! The Crown at Pantygelli, The Red Lion in Llanbedr, The Dragons Head in Llangenny or The Bell at Glangrwyney all serve a decent meal and fair brew. Any one could be walked to, depending on your energy levels, but all are within a short drive or cycle ride.

RIDING: The gentle rolling hills of Powys and Monmouthshire make for fantastic days in the saddle. There are five good riding centres within easy reach.

ON THE WATER: The River Usk in Crickhowell for trout and salmon, with day licenses from The Bridge Inn Pub. The River Cafe in Glasbury is the top canoe rental spot, with a delicious cafe co-located with Wye Valley Canoes. The Brecon & Monmouth Canal is in nearby Llangattock, with the tow path freshly restored it's a pretty cycle ride or easy walk....the only flat ground you'll find!

"BLUE" The Chef & Shower Hut : A gas stove and hob, sink, small fridge, storage space, cutlery, crockery and everything else you would need to rustle up a decent meal at one end, alongside breakfast bar and stools. The other end houses the proper shower, remarkably civilised compost loo, a basin and soft fluffy towels. There is a separate door into each end.

"BELLE" The Snoozing Hut - sleeping two, plus a young baby (please provide your own travel cot). A wood burner with logs included, double bed with fresh cotton bedding, two fire side chairs and table.

THE GARDEN: Set within hundreds of acres of natural farmland, the huts are totally private and sit within their own fenced copse, there are no other shepherds huts around...although friendly owners if you need help are close at hand on the farm. There is an outdoor table and bench as well as a lovely fire pit...plenty of logs available.

PRACTICAL STUFF: Hot water from the gas boiler, light from the solar panels, heaps of cleverly designed storage for bags and boots, thick inches of sheeps wool insulation keeping it warm all year. Basics, including soap, loo paper and cleaning materials are included, as is all bedlinen and towels.

PETS: A well behaved dog is really welcome.  The small field that the huts are in is not 100% fenced for pets.

INFANTS: Infants are welcome - please provide own travel cot.

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

ARRIVE IN DAYLIGHT : The views are amazing and there is a short walk to the huts from the car, so it is well worth trying to arrive at the huts during daylight hours, so you can appreciate the miles of stunning countryside. Torches and lanterns are available for those who are making a later dash to the hills from the office.
