Nestled in ancient woodland, this aptly named hut overlooking the dramatic Usk Valley is wonderfully green and calm with a riot of bluebells carpeting the floor each spring. Off grid luxury and romance in complete seclusion, you’re but a quick drive down the hill to nip in to the urban world.

Whizz past the Wye Valley, noting the Michelin restaurant as you go and within a matter of minutes you’ll find yourself in the market town of Monmouth, complete with pop up Friday street food festivals and handy local stores. Spend days exploring the Wye Valley, with picnic or paddle in hand, explore ancient ruins, high wires and cycle routes in the nearby Forest of Dean, or stride out for the mountains in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Back up at the hut, sunshine dapples through the canopy, views stretch out for miles, sheep graze and if you’re lucky deer bound past, there’s every reason not to venture far at all! A giant of a shepherds hut, every comfort has been considered, from the cosiest of king-size cabin beds, warmest of wood burning stoves and lashings of hot water in the shower. There’s a hammock for lazy days and a fire pit for the obligatory camp fire…the mildest of wild adventures in the beautiful Welsh countryside!

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.

Perfect relaxation and seclusion in a beautiful setting

Lorraine, 13th October 2017

I would recommend the hut if you want to get away from everything as there is nothing around you but the sheep.

Mandy, 29th September 2017

We stayed for a week here and it's absolutely beautiful....secluded and remote but close enough to local towns and villages if needed. Lovely touches like the eggs bread and milk on arrival. Would definitely go again and recommend to friends.

Sarah, 11th September 2017

Arriving at the hut felt magical. It was like stumbling across this place while out exploring in the woods. Once we reached the hut through the path there was a 'wow'moment - the hut was just so cute and the views amazing. The remoteness and simplicity of this place was perfect and just what we both needed to unwind from stressful jobs. We exploredRead more the area during the days and cooked 2/3 nights. The hut has pretty much everything you need. We will definitely be back! Hide

Stephanie, 14th August 2017

Fantastic location and a gorgeous little hut. We had plenty of electricity from the solar power and lots of hot water in the shower. The views are absolutely stunning, a really secluded tranquil spot but still just a short drive to some very pretty towns nearby. Highly recommend lunch at The Walnut Tree in Abergavenny. Overall, a perfect holiday!

Sally, 3rd July 2017

Had a lovely time, the weather was beautiful which added to our experience. We went for walks locally and my partner loved sitting in front of the fire pit till it got dark with beautiful views. It is literally in the middle of a wood and if you never left the hut you wouldn't see a single other person. Would definitely recommend this accommodationRead more. Hide

Catherine, 26th May 2017

The view of the valley hut will always hold a special place in our hearts! I proposed whilst we were thRead moreere and got a YES!!! Hide

Roland, 19th May 2017

This was a hidden gem. There is a great sense of arrival as you head up the path through the Bluebell Wood before spotting the Shepherd's Hut on the brow of the hill.......and then the Monmouthsire countryside opens up in front of you to breathtaking views. Such a peaceful spot and very relaxing break.

Phil, 28th April 2017

If you want peace and quiet then this is most definitely the place to pick. The hut is sat on the edge of your own secluded wood, with fantastic views containing all the comforts needed for an enjoyable getaway. Monmouth is just a short drive away and is well worth visiting. Book your stay, pack a good hamper and selection of beverages and enjoy!
