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 and the luxury of under floor heating. 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, or watch a film on the smart TV, 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 gas BBQ. There is allocated parking for one car.

There is also a lovely tea room on site which is run by the property owners.

An absolutely beautiful place to stay at the bottom of Skirrid Fawr. When you soak in the hot tub at night remember to look up and watch the shooting starts

A very clean,tidy and well equipped Shepards Hut. The outside space is perfect! Hot tub, seating area, parasol, fire pit, gas barbecue and even a washing line! A lot of thought has gone into the hut, and surrounding space. A brilliant stay, for those who want a short stay, in this area. P & J

We had a lovely stay in the skirrid bolt hole. The shepherds hut is set with 2 others on the edge of fields at the back of the copper kettle cafe. Very peaceful & private but being in easy access of the town. The photos on the site do not do this little gem justice . Do not take charcoal, the new bbq is gas & brilliant ! We used google map to navigRead moreate our way there , using copper kettle cafe as the destination rather than post code & had no issues Hide

We had an amazing stay at the Skirrid bolt hole. The location is perfect for a switch off getaway and exploring the nearby walks and hikes. The shepherd hut is perfectly equipped with added features of under floor heating and a log burner. The Hot tub is a great addition and on a clear night you can stargaze!. Each night we had a bbq and got the fiRead morerepit going outside to toast marshmallows on. We have already decided we will be back next year! Thanks to the host's for making our stay amazing! Hide

One of the most memorable holidays I've had in recent years, and for all the right reasons! The Skirrid Bolt Hole is a cosy home from home, very well equipped and in a perfect location for exploring the Brecon Beacons. The hot tub was a lovely addition, and much-needed after days of walking. My biggest tip: look UP! The hot tub is an excellent locaRead moretion for star gazing :) We will definitely be back next year x Hide

Wonderful property in an incredible location! Star gazing from the outdoor hot tub and a fire pit for toasting marshmallows. The hut was right across the road from Skirrid mountain so beautiful views and ideal for walking. Friendly hosts and very knoweldgable about the local area. Would definitely recommend!
