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.

Cuddle up and forget the world in this gorgeously hand-crafted shepherds hut. Tucked at the foot of the Skirrid Mountain, this wonderful bolthole is surrounded by a land of fairy-tale beauty. Perfect for couples looking to escape the rhythm of everyday life for a while, you can explore the rolling countryside and the dramatic scenery of the Black Mountains. Later, return to your delightful hideaway and take a dip in the bubbling hot tub as the light begins to fade.

Compact yet spacious, cosy with modern touches, this wooden hut has been carefully and lovingly crafted to create the ultimate retreat. Traditionally styled and complemented with plush furnishings, the open-plan layout includes a well-equipped kitchen and dining area. Curl up by the wood burner after a day’s exploring and listen to the happy crackle of logs and enjoy the rosy glow. As day turns to night, lay back in the embrace of the hut’s luscious double bed and watch stars twinkle in the night sky outside.

There’s nothing like lungfuls of mountain air to cleanse the mind and heal the body, and this bolthole provides access to some of Wales’ most beautiful scenery. Just across the road, you can start your walk up Skirrid Mountain and take in endless views of the valley. All around there are countless options for walks in the country, so get ready to lace up your walking boots. 12.5 miles away, Raglan Castle provides a gateway into a world of myths and legends, and just 3 miles away Abergavenny Castle and Museum is a fascinating day trip. In Abergavenny town, you will find an abundance of eateries and shops to pick up some treats

My husband and I decided to have a weekend break away. It was the best and most relaxing break weve ever done, the area was so peaceful and the owners were lovely. We took full advantage of the gas bbq and the hot tub and the Shepard hut was amazing. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing time again.

An absolutely beautiful place to stay at the bottom of Skirrid Fawr. When you soak in the hot tub at night remember to look up and watch the shooting starts

A very clean,tidy and well equipped Shepards Hut. The outside space is perfect! Hot tub, seating area, parasol, fire pit, gas barbecue and even a washing line! A lot of thought has gone into the hut, and surrounding space. A brilliant stay, for those who want a short stay, in this area. P & J

We had a lovely stay in the skirrid bolt hole. The shepherds hut is set with 2 others on the edge of fields at the back of the copper kettle cafe. Very peaceful & private but being in easy access of the town. The photos on the site do not do this little gem justice . Do not take charcoal, the new bbq is gas & brilliant ! We used google map to navigRead moreate our way there , using copper kettle cafe as the destination rather than post code & had no issues Hide

We had an amazing stay at the Skirrid bolt hole. The location is perfect for a switch off getaway and exploring the nearby walks and hikes.

Each night we had a bbq and got the fiRead morerepit going outside to toast marshmallows on. We have already decided we will be back next year! Thanks to the host's for making our stay amazing! Hide

One of the most memorable holidays I've had in recent years, and for all the right reasons! The Skirrid Bolt Hole is a cosy home from home, very well equipped and in a perfect location for exploring the Brecon Beacons. The hot tub was a lovely addition, and much-needed after days of walking. My biggest tip: look UP! The hot tub is an excellent locaRead moretion for star gazing :) We will definitely be back next year x Hide

It is a short taxi ride to Abergavenny town and a two minute drive to a Michelin star restaurant; The Walnut Tree.
