Get back to nature at this luxurious and surprisingly spacious shepherd’s hut at the base of the Black Mountains, an ideal romantic getaway close to Hay-on-Wye.

This characterful hut is well designed to comfortably accommodate two people. Set in an idyllic countryside location, you can enjoy pure tranquillity by soaking up the views or explore the walks straight onto the Black Mountains. Just half a mile away you can visit Pwll Wrach Woods and waterfall, a stunning 43-acre nature reserve. Talgarth is 2 miles away, home to an award-winning mill, shops and a selection of pubs and independent eateries.

 

The property is very well designed and has plenty of room. The tasteful kitchen space has a two ring hob, a toaster, a microwave and a fridge.

The external shower room has a spacious standalone shower, WC and basin.

 

Outside the hut will really take your breath away – it’s set in a truly stunning location with a private lake and arboretum as well as meadowland and woodland to explore.

Bills Hut was very well kitted out with all the essentials. It is in a stunning location with loads of walks on the doorstep. There is access to a lovely lake & gardens & Talgarth is only 3 miles away where there is a well stocked supermarket & other shops.

Bill's Shepherds Hut is lovely. It was clean and comfortable, and had every amenity we could need. We prepared all of our meals while we were there, and the small kitchen had everything we needed. It is set in a charming sheep field and close to the various attractions in the Brecon Beacons. It was the perfect place to stay for our weekend getaway,Read more and we would love to stay there again. I cannot think of a single critique - it is perfect. Hide

A perfect idyllic cosy little hut for a couple with a lovely lil kitchen and en suite shower. The location is fantastic at the foothill of the Black Mountains - tranquil and serene. Loved the view. And the owner, Bill is a lovely person. Always greeting you with a smile. He even took us for a small tour of his garden and gave us homegrown rhubarb aRead morend mint on our way back. Would love to come back to this place again. Hide
