Hand-crafted by the owner from local hillside timber, Spring Farm's authentic shepherds hut, winners of a county award, are situated in a hawthorn-fringed meadow, which becomes a sea of bluebells in late spring. With a stunning panoramic view down the whole length of the Bryn Awr Valley to the Brecon Beacons - one of the loveliest vistas in Wales.

Nearby attractions include The River Usk in Crickhowell for trout and salmon fishing with day licenses from The Bridge Inn Pub. The River Cafe in Glasbury is the top canoe rental spot co-located with Wye Valley Canoes. There are also a selection of good riding centres within easy reach.

The first hut has picture windows on both sides and pastel-shaded panelled walls, whilst its blissfully soft double bed has generous storage space beneath. A table and two comfy armchairs complete the furnishings, together with a wood burner to keep you toasty in the winter months. The adjoining second hut has two rooms which comprise of a fully-fitted kitchen complete with stove, oven and fridge. There is a separate bathroom with shower cubicle, wash basin and loo.

The shepherds' huts are positioned within 30 acres of the owner's farm and smallholding, which was awarded a certificate of recognition at the Powys Business Awards, offering a welcoming greeting with lots of friendly animals on site. The owners are always on hand to help with anything you need to make your stay enjoyable.

Sarah and I enjoyed immensely our stay in the Bluebells Shepherd Huts. It was peaceful, romantic, invigorating all in one and we will definitely return. Our thanks to Graham for his kindness and help whilst we were there. Every thought has gone in this holiday home and it has delivered a truly wonderful experience. Thank you.

We had a lovely weekend here. It is a stunning location and the huts have everything you need for a cosy getaway. The fire keeps the bedroom toastie warm and the kitchen and bathroom are well kitted out. I was surprised how hot the water was for the shower!

Loved our stay in these cosy huts. No distractions from internet or tv, just lots of cosy fires, rest and relaxation. You dont get to do that very often. Very clean, with good kitchen facilities and a warm shower. The huts are ideally based for good walks with Sugar Loaf being very close by. Will come back
