Enjoying an enviable location at the foot of the Skirrid, this beautifully hand crafted shepherds hut has a private hot tub and fire pit, just perfect for those looking for a little adventure.

Enter this wonderful shepherds hut and let the murmur of everyday life fade away. At the foot of Skirrid Mountain, this bespoke hut is a gateway to a world of fresh air and wild, breathtaking scenery. Perfectly equipped for two, this delightful bolthole offers the perfect opportunity for a romantic retreat. Wake up with the sun rising over unabated countryside and say, “Bore da!” to some well-deserved revitalisation on the edge of Wales’ striking Black Mountains.

Hand-crafted, the hut’s light and airy interior creates a bright, homely atmosphere. Equipped with lots of home of comforts and luxurious touches, you can enjoy everything you need for a relaxing break. Outside, an external kitchen pod provides space for culinary creation whilst affording great views. In the summer, the private hot tub is the place to be as you soothe your muscles and turn your face to the sun. In winter, the wood burner casts an irresistible glow across the hut and adds an extra splash of opulence.

On the doorstep of beautiful, unrelenting countryside, this is a great area for those who love the outdoors and walks in the reviving mountain air. Head across the road and you will find access to Skirrid Mountain, where the summit rewards walkers to spectacular views. If you enjoy history and want to learn more about the area’s rich heritage, Abergavenny Castle is 3 miles, Crickhowell Castle is 8.5 miles and Raglan Castle is 12.5 miles away. For food, drink and entertainment, a trip to Abergavenny town is in order, where you will find a plethora of things to do.

A really beautiful place. The owners are amazing, super nice and helpful. Everything was clean and cozy and we were made to feel really welcome. Would definitely reccommend a walk up Skirrid View, it's a bit of a hard trek but the views are well worth it.

Our holiday cottage was amazing. Best holiday we've had. Beautiful scenery & location, clean and tidy and the owners were very welcoming. We had our own private hot tub which was an added bonus. Lovely tea room around the corner from where we were staying that made a lovely breakfast. We can't wait to book another gateway there.
