ROMANTIC HUT NESTLED AMONGST BLUEBELL WOODS IN THE USK VALLEY

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.

This hand made shepherds hut offers: Living/kitchen/diner/sleeping area: ONE king-size cabin bed, woodburner (first basket of logs / firelighters and kindling included), Kitchen area with gas hob, woodburning stove style oven, fridge, fire pit and BBQ also available outside for cooking.

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

Jenny, 9th August 2019

A great location and well equipped property

Louise, 15th July 2019

Such a lovely hut. Secluded, relaxing with beautiful scenery. Perfect spot for couple. Owner very helpful and friendly. Bread eggs and milk on our arrival. Nature all around in the trees. Various birds and small mammals

Wayne, 12th July 2019

Excellent stay, the location is fantastic plus good walks right from the door. We parked up and never got in the car again til the end of the holiday. Very tranquil, superb for a relaxing break. The wood was fully fenced so no fear of the dog getting out (he loved it as well) would definitely stay again.

Jackie, 5th July 2019

Beautiful hut nestling in the woods overlooking the valley, if youre looking to get away from it all this is the place to be, very clean and good facilities, highly recommend

Michael, 1st June 2019

This is a one off experience in a majical location. However v small and in our opinion overpriced.

Colin, 17th May 2019

Amazing view, tranquil & totally undisturbed location, every thing you need to enjoy your undisturbed break is on hand. The fridge is deceptively efficient keeping everything cooled with ease, it is a little on the small side however. Had a wonderful time

Sarah, 13th May 2019

Lovely secluded spot with everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

Helen, 3rd May 2019

What an amazing place! Beautiful inside and out and so quiet and cosy. The bed was comfortable, the log burner kept me perfectly warm - everything worked. Enjoyed wonderful walks with my dog from the hut. I really didnt want to leave and neither did the dog! Heaven!

Gordon, 22nd April 2019

What a wonderful shepherds hut, location is stunning and all facilities worked without any issues.

Tracey, 19th April 2019

A beautiful location for a perfect escape in the countryside

Alan, 1st February 2019

An amazing little hut in a lovely woods. We had an excellent time just taking in the scenery. Cant wait to go back in the warmer weather. Tim, the owner, is an absolute star. I left my coat in the hut. Tim had it back to me 2 days later

Michelle, 28th December 2018

We stayed after Christmas and in to the new year with our two dogs and had an amazing time. It was peaceful and quaint, just what we expected. We drove out to some local hiking spots such as Sugarloaf which was lovely. We also saw 2 stays in the field from the hut!

Steven, 14th December 2018

We had a fantastic few days away, staying at the cosy Valley Hut...wonderful countryside in a tranquil setting.
