Situated near the breathtaking and imposing Black Mountains and within the far-reaching lush countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this shepherd’s hut feels straight out of a storybook. Tucked away within a sleepy hamlet, with some of Wales’ best walking routes lying on the doorstep, this a truly idyllic spot for an off-grid holiday escape.

Cosy up beneath the many cushions and blankets which provide a homely and loving touch to the hut. Make use of the underfloor heating guaranteed warm you through on those cold winter months and a coved ceiling and light decor helps enhances the interior. Cast open the doors and windows, letting the fresh country air fill your lungs and giving an unbeatable view of the rolling Welsh hills that stretch for miles before you. Cook up a delicious storm in the compact but well-equipped kitchen area or outside on the BBQ. Enjoy a cwtch in the comfortable sleeping area as you watch your favourite TV show - the perfect way to relax after a busy day of adventure. There’s even space for your four-legged friend to curl up at your feet and enjoy a well-earned snooze!

Throw on your comfiest walking gear and explore the Black Mountains and join the Offa’s Dyke pathway which winds deeper into the countryside, before returning to the friendly atmosphere of the hamlet’s parlour pub. The market town of Abergavenny lies just 8 miles to the north, where you can spend the day discovering the rich history of its famous Norman Castle, the local fare at the popular farmers' market, and the stunning Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal on its doorstep.

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.

A stunning sanctuary in a beautiful location. Compact but with all creature comforts (underfloor heating very effective!). Fabulous hosts, warm and welcoming but unobtrusive.

Chloe, 22nd November 2018

Lovely property! Our hosts were wonderful offering advice on places to visit & providing us with some thoughtful provisions. The property had everything we needed for our stay (Nov cold snap): hot water bottles, blankets, dog towels, extra mats, plus maps, towels, toiletries & kitchen utensils etc. The property was warm & spacious enough for 2 of uRead mores & a collie. We loved watching the farm dogs at work from the decking & hearing the animals near by. Sad to leave but will hopefully be back! Hide

We loved the Shepherds Retreat. Denise and Shirley were really welcoming and helpful. There was everything we needed and loved the little extras they provided which made our stay memorable. The location and view from the hut was stunning. Would recommend the Shepherds Retreat to all my friends.

Everything was there that you might need very quiet location but very limited television viewing

Morys, 23rd June 2018

The Perfect medicine for a busy lifestyle. Fantastic break away from the busy-ness of life. Just the place to switch off and relax with loved ones. I particularly enjoyed that the dog was at home straight away and was enclosed for him to be outside.

Jan, 16th June 2018

Absolutely wonderful. It truly is a retreat. The little extra's you receive really make the stay special. The hut may be small, but everything is there - a comfy bed, plenty of hot water and underfloor heating if it turns cool. Heaven. Only one small problem....... we weren't there long enough!

Melanie, 2nd June 2018

Great location, with lovely friendly people. Would recommend to anyone who likes to get a way from everyday stresses. Great welcome with homemade bread and cakes.

Suzanne, 20th April 2018

The hosts were fabulous and the welcome pack of toiletries, cake, eggs, butter, milk, yummy biscuits, wine and cider were most welcome. The Shepherds Retreat was a perfect location to escape the hustle and bustle of work. The location was ideal for walking on the black mountains with a very energetic young Labrador and a short car journey took you Read moreto Hay on Wye and Abergavenny which were both lovely to mooch around. The hut was so comfortable and cosy that it felt like a home from home. Hide

Emily, 17th April 2018

This was such a novel lovely place to stay. The service provided was excellent and I was welcomed with open arms. I cannot wait until my next stay here.

Jessie, 13th April 2018

We had a lovely weekend away at the Shepherds Retreat. The hut is cosy and has everything you need for a perfect couples getaway: the added touches of scones, freshly made bread and cider we especially loved. Sheila and Dennis, the owners, were lovely and entertained us with their chats. The location was absolutely amazing, and we enjoyed walking tRead morehe Black Mountains. Hide
