Property code: 63223

Quirky lodge with creature comforts in the Black Mountains. Idyllic 17 acre farm with footpaths, wild swimming, horse and donkey trek experiences. Perfect for a real rural retreat in Herefordshire.

Nestling in the beautiful Black Mountains just north of the Brecon Beacons National Park, in the village of Craswall. Pop to Longtown for local produce, a short distance down the road or to Hay-on-Wye where you’re bound to find any book you can think of. Try out Booth’s bookshop with its small cinema and cafe. The town is full independent and local shops, cafes and great events including the renowned Hay-on-Wye Literary Festival. Stroll the local paths or hike to the summit of Pen-y-Fan, the highest point in South Wales. Train enthusiasts will love the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway and don’t miss out on the Big Pit Mining Museum. History, culture and outdoor activities are in abundance here.

A unique experience awaits you in this quirky cabin set by the small wood on this 17 acre farm with horses, donkeys and chickens. Walk through the enclosed garden down to the wooden porch with rocking chair and into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Wood panelled rooms, checked curtains, intriguing artworks, Western saddle and cowboy library to read through, it’s an interior where the American frontier lifestyle meets the Welsh borders with all your creature comforts to enhance your stay. If you decide to eat in there’s a small electric oven and hob, fridge and Belfast sink. The water will need to be heated on the hob for washing up though, a small chore in this lovely setting. The dining table and chairs are perfectly positioned by the window to enjoy a hearty breakfast, maybe use the ingredients from the welcome hamper with eggs, baked beans, bread, butter and jam. The electric shower, with WC, is a great way to start the day. After a full day exploring just relax on the sofa, lose yourself in a good book, watch a film on the TV/DVD or just snuggle up by the wood burner. The cosy bedroom has been designed for a good night’s sleep with double bed and dreamcatcher on the wall.

Outside the enclosed garden is sided by trees with a paved area, grass, seating areas on the decked porch and table and chairs for al fresco dining. The range style fencing is across the 17 acre sanctuary farm with horses, donkeys and chickens. Walk down to the water hole for wild swimming, meet with the owners for private donkey picnics in the wood or find out more from the resident horse listener. This is a unique and special place for a couple to retreat and unwind. Private off-road parking for one car is available at the property. If you are bringing your bikes you can lock them by the side of the cabin. The owners are on-site though privacy is assured.

Donkey rambles are available- This is a walk with a pack donkey - Booking essential through the owner on arrival - There is an extra cost for this

This is a "frontier cabin" and on that basis the property is basic but charming. There is nothing on the doorstep in terms of shops. A village shop is 3 or 4 miles away. The same applies for eating establishments. As a result slightly better cooking facilities would be appreciated for the times you can't BBQ.

Frontier Cabin is magical. It takes you back to a slower world, peace, quiet, fresh air, deep in the hills surrounded by John & Sue's rescue horses. The cabin is very clean, we arrived to fresh milk, bread, eggs, beans etc. John had lit the wood burner for us - so toasty and warm. Electric cooker and shower, WiFi, so home from home. Our dog fitted Read morein so well, and was free to mooch in the enclosed area in front of the cabin. Really highly recommended as a down to earth escape to recharge. Hide
