Nestled within the edge of a blue bell wood overlooking the rolling meadows, this cedar-clad shepherds hut is the perfect paradise of peace and tranquillity for all that come and stay.


Located on a small working farm, this peaceful location will be hard to leave, but if you feel the need to venture out, you have a huge choice of local walking to enjoy with simple access to the Black Mountains and slightly further afield into the Brecon Beacons National Park. The local village is walkable, well served with traditional inns and village shop brimming with regional produce and locally baked bread. Explore Herefordshire's market towns with regular farmers markets and the world famous Hay on Wye literary festival, across the Welsh border you will find an area steeped in history with some of Europe's finest surviving castles. 13th century Grosmont and 12th century and Whitecastle are close by. Raglan and Abergavenny Castles are set against the spectacular backdrop of Offa’s Dyke.

Leave your car and take a short stroll past wooded banks and into a wooded Elysium. This cedar-clad shepherds hut offers an open-plan /kitchen/diner sleeping area.  Comfortable fire-side seating with coloured cushions to relax in front of the wood burner, and, for a simple supper, a two-burner gas hob sits within sympathetic wooden work tops. For a peaceful night's sleep step up into the built in double bed with views onto the woodland. There is a shower room with shower and WC.

Wake up with nature and enjoy breakfast overlooking sheep in the fields, a table and chairs on the stone terrace outside the hut, surrounded with mature woodland. Further down the garden and perfect for late summer evenings is a fire pit and comfortable seating, or simply fire up the wood-fuelled hot tub and relax under the stars. There is off-road parking for two cars and you are welcome to bring 2 dogs with you at no additional charge.

SLEEPS: The open plan living and double bed ensures enough room for two. Linen is provided.

RELAXING: A wood burner and a basket full of wood make this shepherd’s hut toasty and warm. Electric, water and heating is included. There is a radio, but no TV.

COOKING & DINING: A two-hob gas burner and a kettle cover the essentials and a cold chest with ice packs keeps things fresh.

KEEPING CLEAN: There is a shower and a toilet in the hut and fluffy, warm towels are provided.

OUTSIDE: Outside there is a table and chairs for dining and chilling, a wood-fired hot tub for relaxing and a fire-pit for marshmallows and warm toes. There is ample parking for two cars.

The Shepherds Hut was beautiful, as was the setting and view. I brought this for my Husband's 50th Birthday, and he thoroughly enjoyed it. We had such a relaxing time. The hot tub was fabulous. The hosts were lovely, and always if hand if needed, but were very respectful of letting you have your own space. Regular visit from their lovely dog, MerliRead moren, were great, he was very friendly and so well behaved. We wouldn't hesitate to book this again. Hide

This is an amazing relaxing place to go on holiday. Everything is perfect from the lovely hosts Michael, Candida and Merlin the dog to the location and very well equipped shepherd's hut. Everything is here if you need to step away from real life. We really didn't want to come home.

The hut is beautiful and in a lovely location, it has everything you need for a weekend away. The hot tub under the stars was magical. It was clean, lovely and comfy. The hosts are so helpful with plenty of knowledge of the area and provide a fantastic hamper. My poach Bruno also had a great time with Merlin exploring the local area.

Micheal, Candida and Merlin and wonderful hosts, the Shepards hut is a wonderful magical place that you cant fail to relax in.

We had a brilliant time here. We love to escape from people and reality when we go away and the bluebell hut was perfect. The owners were friendly and helpful without being overbearing and we felt blissfully removed from the real world. The hut is fantastically well equipped and the hot tub was fab. The area was great for exploring too!

Wow! What a lovely relaxing holiday. The secluded nature of the hut means that you feel as if you have truly had a relaxing break. The boys (our dogs) loved it too, playing with the owners lab for hours on end. Can't wait to go back!
