Hidden in the heart of the hills, this private nest of beautiful handmade shepherds’ huts provide the ultimate glamping adventure. Relax by the stream or gather around the fire pit in the evenings.

This group of 4 exquisite huts is exclusively yours tucked away in the hills, yet just a run back down the hill into Hay-on-Wye, complete with gorgeous little shops and eateries. A babbling brook, peaceful location and the dramatic expanse of the Brecon Beacons Dark Sky Reserve overhead, this is a perfect retreat to re-connect and get back to nature….or have a little glamping party with your mates!

Located in one of the most spectacular locations in the National Park. Nearby Hay-on-Wye has an exceptionally well supplied yet quaint Thursday morning market, pubs, great independent stores and a world famous book festival each May, and is just a few miles away. The River Wye is far below at the bottom of the mountain, with canoe hire, a great river side cafe, bike, pony and even Vespa hire. For thrill seekers, Black Mountain Activities nearby has a long list of adrenaline-fuelled activities to keep you busy, including gorge walking and high wire ropes.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience . The only comment is that there is a rather long and steep walk down to the huts which feels even longer and steeper when walking back Up from the huts.

What an absolutely fantastic place to stay! The walk from the car park to the huts is very steep with a wheelbarrow and some of our party did struggle a bit but it's totally worth it for such a feeling of isolation.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Huts in the Hills and would recommend it to our friends and family. The location is stunning with amazing views of Hay Bluff and the setting of the huts themselves is beautiful.

Absolutely loved our time here. The set up is really great and being off the grid for a week was welcomed by all of us. The huts are kept to a great standard and were really clean when we arrived. The location is great if you want to get away from the usual noise and had many wonderful nights around the fire. Definitely recommend.

We had a fabulous time at the huts with our children (12, 10 and 8). We love glamping, and this was the perfect balance of "back to nature" and creature comforts. The site is completely secluded and in a beautiful setting. Sarah the owner was very quick to respond to a couple of minor requests we made. The children are already begging to return!

I loved this back to basic but not too basic holiday. Would definitely consider going back or booking something similar. It took us a while to get used to lighting the kitchen cooker & the hot tub but loved the location next to a stream that sounded amazing.
