The Shepherd's Hut is perfect for couples looking for a romantic and relaxing break. It is the ideal base for exploring the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains, the famous Hay Festival (May), great pubs and historical sites. You’ll love The Shepherd's Hut because of its location, the stunning scenery, its cosiness, the comfy bed, the attention to detail, the delicious breakfasts and the fabulous gastropub, just a mile away in the next village.
It really is a memorable place to stay... X
The Shepherd's Hut is bespoke to ensure that it can accommodate a full size bed. We had a wet room installed complete with little wooden basin, electric shower and a top-of-the-range self composting loo with integrated extractor fan. It is positioned such that you can look out of the main window across to the Brecon Beacons, whilst from the door you can gaze over to the Black Mountains. The Hut is insulated with sheep's wool and has underfloor heating along with a dinky wood burning stove to ensure a snug and cosy stay. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided with the water sourced from our own borehole - delicious!
There is designated parking in front of the goat pen up by the big barn. You can then wander past the lavender beds along the back of the house to the far end of the garden where you will find the Shepherd's Hut. With the exception of the courtyard to the front of the house, you are free to roam around the property - taking an early evening drink down to the pond is popular - although the area around the Shepherd's Hut is perfect for watching sunsets and sunrises..

Breakfast is normally served across the lawn in the main house, accessed via the patio door. If the weather is warm enough, you will be given breakfast out on the patio. Now is the perfect time to spread out the map on the breakfast table and finalise your plans for the day or ask Amanda for suggestions/advice on routes, places to visit etc.
You'll be asked what time you would like breakfast along with how you like your egg cooked (courtesy of our own hens) and your preference for tea or coffee.
A packed lunch can be provided and/or a bottle of Champagne, Prosecco etc can be provided for an additional cost.
