Nestled within the hillside offering complete privacy with far-reaching views across the rolling hills, this charming off-grid bothy is perfect for honeymoons and romantic getaways.

Embrace off-grid living and stripping back to nature at this beautiful bothy where oil lamps flicker into the night and crackling logs keep the chill at bay. Snuggle beneath soft sheepskins and bubble the night away in the wood fired hot tub before savouring delicious flavours and feasting your eyes on rural views. Nestled above the Brecon Beacons National Park in National Trust Common Land, explore and enjoy dramatic, romantic walks without straying far from home.

 Follow steps through the trees and enjoy a fairy tale approach to this characterful home which is bursting with charm and quirk. Beautiful leaded windows let natural light fill the space and when day turns to dusk, oil fired lamps and moonlight will twinkle inside creating a magical ambience in which to relax. Natural materials and tranquil, earthy tones invite you to relax in the open-plan living space where you can curl up on the sofa, throw logs on the wood burner or chop ingredients on the wooden worktops. Bathe alfresco in the free-standing, clawfoot tub or bubble and soak in the romantic hot tub before bed. The mezzanine-style bedroom sits within the eaves of the bothy, is reached via a ladder and welcomes you with soft Welsh blankets.

Please note the property is off grid and so has no electricity, mobile signal or wi-fi. All cooking is done on the wood burner.

Enjoy your wonderfully peaceful location amongst trees, meadows and a babbling stream and roam the National Trust common land without a care in the world. If you fancy venturing further afield and enjoying the gentle hustle and bustle of a vibrant town, make the 4.5-mile trip to Hay-on-Wye where second-hand bookshops dot the streets, and you can indulge in delicious plates of food. For waterside walks with a splash of adventure, travel 16 miles to Llangorse Lake where you can take in the views or visit the activity centre.

A magical little bolthole, the perfect way to slow down, unwind and reset. Off grid, slow living in the most stunning setting. The Bothy really is all it promises. The hosts are so accommodating, and thoughtful.

We had an absolutely fantastic time in May 2021. I'd recommend coming at this time of the year as it wasn't so cold that you couldn't heat it up, but not too warm to where you wouldn't want to have the fire going all the time. The owner was lovely and very accommodating.
