Enjoying an enviable location at the foot of the Skirrid, this beautifully hand crafted shepherds hut has a private hot tub and fire pit, just perfect for those looking for a little adventure.

Nestled at the foot of the Skirrid, on the eastern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Wye Valley. It is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and relax in the great Welsh outdoors. The area is also steeped in history with some of Europe’s finest surviving castles, Abergavenny Castle set against the spectacular hills and Crickhowell Castle, a prominent feature within a small market town, or if you want more of an adventure try canoeing or kayaking on the River Wye. The area is also host to a vibrant events calendar to include Usk show and Abergavenny food festival.

Take in the stunning views across the Skirrid and surrounding mountain ranges before you step up onto the terrace of this hand crafted shepherds hut. This wooden hut sympathetically finished with hard wood windows and doors offers cosy accommodation. Inside the front door you will find a living area with lounge/kitchen/diner and sleeping area with a wood burner to snuggle up in front of after a day exploring the area. The lounge area has chairs where you can relax and listen to music on the radio, along with a small table and chairs for a simple supper for two. The kitchen area has a gas hob, fridge and kettle. In the evening snuggle up in the comfy double bed and look out at the stars. You will also find a shower room with a shower and WC.

After a day exploring why not enjoy a soak in your own private hot tub, there is also an area set with table and chairs for al fresco dining and a charcoal BBQ; guests will have to provide their own charcoal. There is allocated parking for one car.

There is also a lovely tea room on site which is run by the property owners. Due to current social distancing measures, the tea room on site may be operating different services, opening days and times.

We stayed in Shepherd Hut 2 which has a beautiful, scenic setting right by the trail up Skirrid Mountain. It is a short taxi ride to Abergavenny town and a two minute drive to a Michelin star restaurant; The Walnut Tree. The accommodation is conveniently located for many trails and towns so will suit whoever visits. We had a wonderful time. The hotRead more tub was excellent and the shepherds hut lovely and cosy.

Lovely little shepherds hut for me and my boyfriend, had everything we needed, very private with a gorgeous hot tub, the hot tub even had speakers to play music and was very hot with powerful jets. Perfect little place to relax with the local town just minuets drive.

One of the best short breaks we have had! The Shepherds hut is finished to a really high quality and the private garden area is perfect for getting the BBQ going or relaxing in the hot tub. The owners are really friendly and the cafe next door does a nice breakfast. The location is excellent for walking and exploring the brecon beacons. We will defRead moreinitely be booking this place up again. Hide

The shepards hut is lovely, warm and has almost everything you need. Even when it was raining it was still cosy and the hot tub was fancy. Abergavenny isn't far away and is a lovely little town. However make sure you bring some tea bags, milk and a book :)
