This peaceful location will be hard to leave, however before the time comes you will have a wealth of walking to enjoy with simple access into the Black Mountains and slightly further afield the Brecon Beacons National Park. Enjoy the best of both Monmouthshire and Herefordshire’s market towns with regular farmers markets and literature and art festivals. Across the border, you will find an area steeped in history with some of Europe’s finest surviving castles and countryside, Brecon Castle overlooking the River Usk, Abergavenny Castle set against the spectacular hills and Crickhowell Castle, a prominent feature within a small market town. You may wish to enjoy a spot of fishing at one of several nearby locations. At the end of a busy day, return to the blissful peace of your retreat.

Take a stroll across the meadow and arrive at the wooden bridge where you will capture your first glimpse of this hand-crafted railway carriage. The covered terrace with double doors open into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, cosy chairs sit well in front of the wood burner effect electric fire, with a beautifully finished kitchen set against the rear of the carriage, equipped with electric hob, fridge with ice compartment, and for dining you can make the most of the carriage with the small pull out table and chairs. When your day is done climb into the built in double bed with TV. There is also a shower room with WC within the carriage.

Wake up to the sound of bird song and the babbling brook whilst you take breakfast on your private terrace over-looking the water’s edge, the terrace is a perfect sun trap and enjoys a cover for chiller autumn evenings along with a warming fire pit. Outside you will also find a gas BBQ. There is parking for two cars available.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

WALK THIS WAY: You will find yourself within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty so you’re never far from a beautiful countryside trail to wander or a more challenging hilly hike to tackle! There’s also easy access into the Black Mountains and, slightly further afield, the Brecon Beacons National Park. There are also several fishing locations nearby.

CASTLES & CULTURE:   This border area is steeped in history with the ruins of some of  fine castles and beautiful countryside.  Nearby Raglan Castle is well worth a visit, as are Brecon Castle, overlooking the River Usk, Abergavenny Castle set against the beautiful Blorenge Mountain and the remains Crickhowell Castle, on the edge of this pretty Welsh market town.

TOUR THE TOWNS: Enjoy the best of both Monmouthshire and Herefordshire’s market towns with regular farmers markets and literature and art festivals.

FINE FAYRE:  In Monmouthshire, you’re never far from a delicious bite to eat! There is a fabulous array of eateries in every direction.  Two notable Michelin starred restaurants are The Walnut Tree and The Hardwick both tried and tested by the team - both of them only a short drive away.

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

Anne-Marie, 23rd August 2019

We had an amazing stay for our first wedding anniversary. The location is beautiful and secluded. Surrounded by fields, the hut is hidden away down your own private track. So much thought and care has gone into the construction and decoration of the hut; it's a cosy and comfortable little haven. The owners were great, not that we needed to contact Read morethem whilst we were there as they have thought of everything you could possibly need. We will definitely be back. Hide

Katrina, 9th August 2019

The wool washers hut was a perfect tranquil location with very good facilities especially for the size. The surrounding grounds including the stream were really pretty with the relaxing sound of water running over the weir. The cottage was completely isolated with no other buildings visible a totally idealistic spot .

Christopher , 20th July 2019

Fabulous. Better than the pictures on the website. Lovely location. Will definitely return.

Ian, 7th July 2019

We had such an amazing time. Beautifully crafted shepherds hut and the verandah is just ideal to extend the evening with alfresco dining. Fantastic open fire and cosy hammock slung beside the brook ... What more do you need! All in all, a real gem!!
