  • A romantic hideaway cabin in the woods
  • Explore the literary haven of Hay-on-Wye, 1 mile away
  • Challenge yourselves to a trek in the Black Mountains, for inspiring views across Wales
Property code: BN160

A secluded spot in the forest for a cosy couple’s break. Get back to nature and explore walking and cycling trails along the River Wye and into the Brecon Beacons.

The cabin is located in the sweet rural hamlet of Clyro, just north of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Adventure on foot or bike on the pathways that criss-cross this storied landscape. Climb the ridges of the Black Mountains to get an intimate experience of the Welsh weather. Or for a culture trip, the quaint town of Hay-on-Wye is 1 mile away; it’s famous for its literary festival, but is also packed with history. Visit the 12th-century Hay Castle before taking in the local independent book shops.

 

The property is a cabin sitting in a secluded plot, with a timber exterior that continues inside for a cosy, natural feel. Step in through the glass-fronted entrance — discover a bright open-plan living space that combines the kitchen, bedroom and sitting areas. The sofa is a comfy place to relax, as you prepare a meal in the well-equipped kitchen, with a butler sink, microwave, and a pull-out breakfast bar. The bed is a double, dressed in natural tones. Enjoy waking up with the birds singing outside the cabin’s many windows. The shower room gives you an invigorating start to the day before you head into the Beacons.

 

The space outside the cabin is made for a romantic hideaway. Tell the story of your first date beside the fire pit. Wake up and enjoy your morning coffee in the woodland air. Explore the owner’s land, including an orchard, or find the footpath that leads straight from your plot into the hills.

We spent the end of the summer long weekend here. It's a perfect location, with most trailheads and viewpoints just a short drive away. The cottage was exceptionally clean, and the fresh flowers were a nice touch.

Beautiful setting. Everything you need is provided. Village is a half hour walk..1.5 miles each way. If you want a bar, Baskerville Hall is 5 min walk. Brecon beacons is a half hour drive, but plenty to see locally in Hay-on-Wye. No supermarket in the village just a Spar convenience store. Brecon has more larger shops.

We had a wonderful time in beautiful surroundings. We were very warmly welcomed and our needs were well catered for. It is a lovely private spot and we felt completely at home right from the off. Plenty to do and see within reasonable walking distance but to be honest we enjoyed hanging out in Forest Nest just as much.
