Such a lovely time away here! Despite going on a stormy weekend we managed to relax and cosy up in the luxurious Shepards Hut. Beautiful views and a perfect break for our fur baby. A huge shout out to Nick - a wonderful host.

Fantastic break, the hut is gorgeous! The log burner was really nice and kept us warm. The bed was comfy and the view from it was great. Everything you would need had been thought of and Nick was very welcoming. We would definitely go again!

Incredibly peaceful with views right over the valley. Bed and shower the best we have encountered. Lovely to wake up and look through the window over the valley. Honesty shop was great. Nick, our host, was there if there was anything we needed. He brought homemade mince pies to us on Christmas Day and we helped feed his sheep.

Reviewed by Chris, 7th December 2019

Highly quality build and luxuriously appointed. Our hut 'Usk' must also be superbly insulated as just a single miniature electric radiator maintained a cosy temperature despite two chilly nights. Keep up the good work, Nick!
