Situated in front of the owner’s traditional longhouse, this quirky 18-foot shepherd hut enjoys glorious views across the fields towards the Epynt Mountain and the valley below. There are wonderful walks straight from the door through woodland and fields, offering plentiful wildlife spotting opportunities. Situated in a remote location, the hut offers an escape from the stresses and strains of modern life. The village of Cilmery (2.5 miles) has a well-regarded traditional inn and there is a request-stop train station for the Heart of Wales Railway Line. Take time to see the stone monument to Prince Llewelyn, slain on the banks of the river. Shops and a choice of cafes and restaurants can be found at nearby Builth Wells (6 miles) where you can ramble along the banks of the River Wye. Explore the Elan Valley (8 miles) where you will find scenic walks and picturesque picnic spots. Further afield, the popular towns of Brecon (20 miles) and Hay-on-Wye are well worth a visit.

Set in the grounds of the owner’s property, this comfortable cedar-clad cosy holiday home offers well-designed accommodation on one level. Follow the pathway and take the three steps to the entrance door. Enter into the open-plan interior with wood-panelled walls and colourful soft furnishings. At one end is the comfortable king-size bed, dressed in a hand-crocheted bed cover with co-ordinating handmade cushions. There is a compact but well-equipped kitchen area with a two-ring hob, microwave/oven and fridge with freezer compartment. Dine at the pull-out table and chairs as you enjoy the views across the valley through the  double doors before curling up in one of the cosy chairs and chatting in front of the flickering flames of the wood burner. A shower room with WC completes the accommodation.

Outside, dine alfresco on your private balcony where you will find a bistro-style table and chairs for romantic sunset meals. The garden area is equipped with a BBQ and firepit, perfect for evenings spent stargazing under the clear skies. Bring your binoculars as the wider surrounding gardens have been designed to attract wildlife and you may spot the barn owls and woodpeckers which are visitors to the garden. There is ample parking available. Yoga classes and textile courses can be arranged with the owners upon request.

The shepherd's hut is a secret gem. Beautiful location, we especially enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the birds feeding from the feeders and a pair of pheasants strutting around in front of us. The hut is well equipped and the hosts attention to detail makes for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Rose is a wonderful host, she even remembered to Read moretext a happy birthday message to my husband as we had mentioned that this was his birthday break. Highly recommended. Hide

Highly recommend staying at the shepherds hut, it has all you could possibly need and more for your stay. The hosts have thought of everything to help your stay more relaxing and hassle free.
