One of two super shepherds’ huts nestling in the beautiful Wye Valley. Less than three miles to the pretty market town of Usk, which offers a plethora of independent shops, eateries, inns and antique shops. This fantastic area offers an array of dramatic landscapes and nature trails, plenty of opportunities to sample the local produce and a visit to nearby Abergavenny is a must.

We had such a wonderful stay at the Ty Gwyn Shepherds Hut. It was a great base to get to all of the sites we wanted to see and Nick and his family were brilliant and so helpful Hetty was a big hit with our dog Buddy! Plus the views were beautiful! We loved it so much were definitely going to book another stay!

These Shepherds huts are in the most beautiful and peaceful location. A little difficult to find but all part of the excitement and adventure. Lovely welcome from Nick and Hettie the retriever. Accommodation was perfect with everything you would ned for outdoor lining without actually being fully outdoors. Will certainly be going back.

The hut is incredibly warm and cosy and we both had a wonderful time. The scenery and the surrounding area is absolutely stunning. You are isolated and away from all the hustle and bustle but not too far away that you can't easily get to local amenities etc. I would thoroughly recommend this to anybody. Our hosts were amazing, they were so accommodRead moreating and friendly. Hide
