Amazing place totally secluded and tranquil. Perfect for a romantic break or just to escape from it all. Super cosy and comfy bed. Great to explore the area.

Beautiful place, truly magical. We enjoyed chopping wood, making all our meals over the fire and having a romantic time of it! Weather was gorgeous, maybe a little too gorgeous - could have done with a bit more breeze and a little cloud! We highly recommend the icecream parlour in Hay - very welcome on the hottest day of the year!

Nice secluded spot in the middle of nowhere. Good to get away from it all and build plenty of fires. Hot tub and showering with the wall slid back are particular bonuss! Ever little details was looked at even as far as providing marsh mallows to toast.

If your looking for some where special this is the place to visit. Beautiful location and the shepherds huts are amazing the craftsmanship and attentions to detail are second to none. A place to fall in love all over again.

Amazing weekend away. The hot tub took a while to heat (probably our fire making skills) but was truely blissful and worth the effort! The bed is super comfy and the location simply stunning. Would highly recommend a stay in this unique venue.

Would really recommend this holiday for privacy and comfort, we thoroughly enjoyed the Hideaway especially the hot tub, brought back my growing up memories.

Reviewed by Aaron, 19th January 2018

Great if you want to escape the everyday hustle, have some quiet time to relax and forget about the world! The sky on a clear night is worth the trip alone. visited during January when temperatures didn't really get above 4 degrees C, so had a bit of trouble heating the hot tub which we were gutted about, but still had an amazing time. The owner waRead mores very helpful and really friendly. The Bridge inn pub is a short drive from the Hideaway, and well worth a visit for good food! Hide

Lovely & helpful host with stunning scenery to match. If you want a v simple but comfortable holiday off the grid, and happy with no electricity / running water, this is for you

The Sheppard's hut is exquisitely decorated. We spent a cosy day away from the elements with the wood burner roaring in the back ground - the pub close by is exceptional. And then the walking started just outside! Then to relax those walking muscles the Hot tub is out of this world. Well done Gabbie. We'll be back!

Absolutely amazing! Better than expected! Could not recommend enough!!!

A perfect romantic getaway! Off grid and off the beaten track lies this perfectly equipped shepherd's hut with the everything you could possibly need; even a wood fired hot tub - simply bliss! We stayed for a week (honeymoon) and found there was an abundance of things to do locally and this truly was the perfect hideaway.
