Description

Property code: 43059

Romantic unique property to make you feel at one with nature but within easy reach to local amenities so you’re not completely isolated

Romantic hideaway in breath-taking wooded valley 

Originally a writer’s cabin, this cosy shack feels off the beaten track, yet is really very easy to get back to the real world. Many items made by the owner from a native ash tree can be found within the structure of the property.

Explore the private woodland, listen to the birds, relax in the hammock by the stream or enjoy stunning trails from the doorstep. Across the lane walk the Sugar Loaf Mountain or stride out into the Brecon Beacons National Park or Wye Valley, both within easy reach. There are exceptional road trails and mountain biking within the area and The Black Mountains are home to pony trekking centres. The town of Crickhowell is within easy reach and good for stocking up on local fayre. The historical city of Hereford with Cathedral and Mappa Mundi and Hay on Wye, famous for the annual Hay Festival and numerous second hand bookshops, are both good for day trips.

The accommodation offers ONE bedroom: cosy double. Shower room: with shower and compost WC. Lounge/kitchen/diner: woodburner (plentiful supply of logs provided), board games and books. Kitchen area with small electric cooker, 2 ring electric hob and fridge. Outside: decked area with garden furniture, hammock and chiminea. Amenities: parking for 1 car. Bed linen, towels, electric and logs included. Regret no pets. Regret no smoking. Arrival: 4pm.

As i mentioned above a lot of love must have gone into the build and the location...... Having just the basics was perfect for us and having no WiFi did it for us. Just listening to natures sounds + the running stream was comforting on it's own. The smell of the Log Burner added a wonderful feeling to the Wood Shack and it heated the Shack instantly.The sounds at night was comforting and the night sky was absolutely breathtaking. A must for everyone to experience so thank you + the owners.....

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday it was perfect. Everything about this stay was lovely I honestly can't think of a bad moment. We are looking forward to visiting again.

Utterly blissful stay in a secluded and magical setting, with the stream and the birds outside and an amazingly effective combination of woodstove and superb insulation indoors. When it was rainy we stayed in and read; in the sunshine we lazed around on the deck and in the hammock and read some more; and on a clear night we were awed by the brightness of the stars.

Amazing stay at the wood shack! The most beautiful setting and so cosy with the log fire. Very peaceful and perfect for getting away from it all for a romantic break. Would highly recommend!

We had a wonderful stay at the Woodshack. It was a real treat to hideaway from the world and listen to the running water in the brook at the bottom of the wood. A very cosy escape!

The perfect place to switch off and Forget everything. My partner and I fell even more in love with each other and a more simple life. It really makes you re think things and enjoy the finer things in life. Sounds extreme but it’s true. What a fantastic few days I’ll never forget.
