You could not wish to be better placed, to enjoy the enviable position on the English/Welsh border. The Offa’s Dyke foot path is nearby allowing for you to enjoy a long or short trek. The Black Mountains, Brecon beacons and Wye Valley are also nearby. The area offers a number of historic market towns such as Hay-on-Wye, Clun, Ludlow and Leominster, across the border you will find an area steeped in history with some of Europe’s finest surviving castles and countryside, Brecon Castle overlooking the River Usk and Abergavenny Castle set against the spectacular hills.

Step onto the terrace and enjoy the views across the Welsh mountains, the shepherds hut offers open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining/sleeping area, the comfortable seating with coloured cushions and natural woollen throws sit perfectly in front of the wood burner, and for a simple supper a gas oven and hob sits within sympathetic wooden work tops. For a peaceful night’s sleep step up into the built in double bed where you can enjoy views onto the mountain range, there are also two pull out beds just perfect for a family, there is also a shower room, with shower and an Eco WC outside the shepherds hut.

WALKING & CYCLING: The grounds in which the hut is situated are all there for you to roam and explore, but if you’re looking for a longer adventure, the Offa’s Dyke footpath is nearby. The position of the hut on the country border means you’re also close to both the Wye Valley and Brecon Beacons – you couldn’t be better placed for walking and cycling!

CASTLES & CULTURE: You’ll be immersed in an area that is inundated with historical ruins, majestic castles and breath-taking countryside. The towns themselves in the surrounding area are saturated in rich history, whilst some of Europe’s finest surviving castles can be found within the border of Wales: Brecon Castle and Abergavenny Castle.

TOUR THE TOWNS: Spoilt for choice when it comes to picturesque towns to explore, try to visit as many as possible, as each place boasts its own unique charm. Hay-on-Wye’s fame as a ‘literary capital’ is certainly one that is well-deserved, with many a quaint bookshop to be found on every street. Ludlow’s historical streets are beautiful and historical. Llandrindod Wells is one of the friendliest Welsh towns you could come across and Leominster’s Black and White Village Trail is a must-see.

FINE FAYRE: When it comes to dining you have the best of both worlds on either side of the border so you can sample a taste of two cultures. Not far from the hut, the Harp Inn at Radnor serves delicious and refined, yet rustic dishes to tantalise taste buds, or head into Kington for a choice of eateries, including the Royal Oak Inn for authentic Thai cuisine, Ye Olde Tavern for traditional dishes, or Gray’s at the Swan for a mouth-watering steak.

SLEEPS: There is one double bed and two additional pull-out single beds.

RELAXING: Electric power and electric heating is included for your stay.

COOKING & DINING: There is a gas oven and hob in the kitchen area.

KEEPING CLEAN: You’ll find one shower room with an Eco WC. Towels are provided for your stay.

OUTSIDE: Outside there is a terrace with ample seating and table space, plus ample off-road parking space for two cars.

PETS: This property welcomes one dog.

TECHY STUFF: The hut has full electrical power with sockets for charging all your gadgets. There is good mobile reception on most networks.

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

Amy, 19th April 2019

We had a lovely stay. Location is so peaceful and relaxing and the accommodation was well equipped to really enjoy our stay. Be prepared to really get away from it all, with local shops and pubs only within driving distance, so come prepared with food before you arrive. But if you really do want to just be cut off from the world and relax it's a loRead morevely stay! Hide

Dave, 13th August 2018

Stunning views from the decking and lots of open space for the dog to run and walk along Offa's Dyke. No TV, no internet and did not even look at my mobile phone. Just peace and tranquility which is exactly what I needed. With no light pollution the night sky with billions of stars and the Milky Way was amazing. I was sorry to leave and could quiteRead more happily live here permanently. Hide
