Nestled among the trees within the fringes of a peaceful meadow you’ll find this adorable hand-crafted railway carriage, boasting cuteness and cosiness from every corner. It’s just perfect for couples looking to escape the real world.

After making your way through the beautiful countryside and over the wooden bridge, hiding at the edge of a shaded woodland this charming cabin will come into sight. Soak up the emerald views before stepping through the double doors into the gorgeous open-plan living space. The meticulous attention to detail exudes an undeniable warmth and welcome the moment you enter; cosy chairs sit beside the fire and look out to the meadow – a delightful spot to snuggle up and enjoy a hot cocoa as the sun sets outside.

Although small in size, the kitchen area has everything you could need to cook up delicious meals, there’s even a pull-out table and chairs to enjoy a spot of candle-lit fine dining!

When the day is done, climb into the cabin bed and sink into the squashy bed linen, knitted cushions and fur throws – with the wooden ceiling above you, you really will feel like you’re a million miles from anywhere! There’s also a shower room with a loo within the carriage, so no need to forego the luxuries like with more traditional camping.

The outside space is utterly charming. Wake up with nature, let the outside in and enjoy breakfast on the terrace with nothing but birdsong and fresh countryside air surrounding you. This charming terrace area is a perfect sun trap, yet has a cover for cooler autumn evenings, although the iron fire pit is sure to keep you nice and warm – gather on the log stools, toast marshmallows and gaze up at the starry night sky above.

Make the most of the serene outside space and take a dip in the natural plunge pools or have a swing on the hammock. With nothing but the welcome shade of the trees, comfy cushions to lay your head, the sweet smell of wild flowers and the faint sound of the babbling brook – you can laze away your days in complete and utter bliss.

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.

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

Dawn, 19th October 2018

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!!

Julie, 15th October 2018

The Shepherds Hut is nestled by a stream on the edge of a wood, tranquility within beautifully restored accommodation. Perfect in every way.

Sally, 13th September 2018

Wow what an amazing relaxing and romantic stay we had. I could have stayed lying in the hammock listening to the stream forever. While my boyfriend fell in love with the fire fit. Our cocker spaniel as never been so tired. We had the best time :-)

This is the most Romantic cozy hut set in the most stunning scenery with cows and sheep in the neighbouring field whilst a stream separates. The owners have thought of every little detail and we have recommend to friends and family.

Katrina, 18th May 2018

Woolwasher's Shepherd's Hut is wonderfully comfortable and well equipped. The terrace area is very useful and lovely to use for meals. It is useful for storing a few things too as the hut is small. The peaceful location of this hut is excellent. We had complete privacy and tranquillity with the sound of the waterfall as a backdrop. It is a great baRead morese for walking in the Black Mountains.

Charlene , 27th April 2018

We feel in the love the moment we arrived. Very secluded and was simply the perfect retreat away from everyday life. Lots of amazing walks on your doorstep as well as great pubs to enjoy food and drink. The owners are very friendly, nice people. Little things like a bottle of prosecco on arrival and marshmallows for toasting on the fire made it speRead morecial. Everything had its place and we were so surprised at how soundproof and cosy the hut was. We'll definitely be back for more adventures. Hide

What an idyllic retreat. Perfect for some quality R&R, whilst splashing in the river just steps from the hut

Ryan, 2nd February 2018
