Peacefully tucked into the hillside with far reaching views across the countryside, this wooden shepherd hut with private hot tub is simply perfect for couples wanting to escape everyday life.

Enjoying a great location, a working farm of 200 acres, here you can leave the car behind and make the most of the well waymarked trails from your front door. The Herefordshire countryside is perfect throughout the year where you can explore the Wye Valley Way, Offa’s Dyke and the Forest of Dean. For cyclists you can join the National cycling trail and the country lanes or venture into the Forest for a slightly more challenging terrain. And in summertime why not hire a canoe and take time to enjoy the River. A trip to one of the many market towns is a must where you can pick up local produce from a farmer’s market or browse the independent shops, Hay-on-Wye is famed for books and the annual international literary festival.

Enjoy the views across the countryside as you take the path down to your shepherd’s hut, here you will find a bench where you can sit and enjoy the views before you step inside to explore. This traditionally built hut offers a cosy retreat that’s finished simply with many homely touches and everything you will need for your stay. The hut is open plan with a wood burning stove to keep you warm, a kitchen space with wooden work tops, electric oven and gas hob and a fridge/freezer. A small table with bar stools for breakfast with a stunning view. The double bed is raised and built in, perfect for a peaceful night’s rest and relaxing in front of the wall mount TV. There is a shower room with shower and WC within the hut.

Outside a spacious enclosed space where you can relax, a hot tub sits next to the hut where you can enjoy soaking after a day exploring or simply enjoy the night skies. There is also a summer house which stores a BBQ for summer dining. There is a table and chairs for two and further into the grounds a carved log for two where you can watch the sun go down. There is bike storage and parking for two cars.

Just got back from our 4 night stay and I cannot recommend this place highly enough. The hut was lovely complete with comfy bed, TV and kitchen. The views were amazing especially from the hot tub! Watching the sheep on the field opposite was wonderful and it being full enclosed for our dog Frankie was what made it cant wait to go back! The hosts weRead morere lovely, checked on the hot tub and made sure we had everything we needed. Hide
