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.

SLEEPS 2 : Designed just for two, with double bed, decent mattress and proper bed linen, which is provided.

RELAXING : Cosy living space, with kitchen, dining table overlooking the deck area and sofa. Wood burning stove and a plentiful supply of logs. Unusually for a Glamping site, there is electricity, so electric lights and normal plug sockets are in candles too for the romantic in you!

COOKING : Handbuilt kitchen with fridge, electric cooker and small hob, sink. Equipped with all the crockery and cutlery you should need, plus handy washing up liquid, salt, pepper etc. provided.

KEEPING CLEAN : Separate shower room with hot and cold shower, towels and soap included, loo and basin. The loo is composted, although impressively clean and civilised!

OUTSIDE SPACE : Oak deck area with outside furniture, hammock, chiminea and geneous supplies of logs. Stunning surrounding woodland for your private use. Parking for one car.

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 brightnRead moreess 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 its true. What a fantastic few days Ill never forget.

The perfect cottage getaway. It really takes you away from it all and allows you to really appreciate your surroundings. Beautifully decorated and wonderfully located. Fabulously cosy!!

An amazing 'getaway from it all' place. The lovely owner's house/parking not far away but you absolutely felt you were all alone, undisturbed and at one with nature. A beautiful location. The wood burner was fantastic and the shack was so cosy the whole time. Having to open windows to cool down, in the first week of December, was a wonderful noveltRead morey! Hearing nothing but the babbling stream, various bird song and the spit of the logs in the woodburner made it an experience we'll never forget. Hide

Such a lovely, quaint location. The lack of phone signal was amazing, no contact with the outside world for five days unless we wanted it...which we didnt! Peaceful nights on the hammock listening to the stream and keeping warm by the fire was just what we needed. The perfect engagement celebration and our newborn was so comfortable in these unfamiRead moreliar surroundings. I would recommend anyone to do the walk highlighted in the guest book as the views were breath taking. Hide

The Wood Shack is great! Walking down the path towards it, you already feel yourself getting away from it all. It sits beautifully between the trees and next to a brook, which is a lovely sound as you lie in your bed en enjoy the silence of your surroundings.

Absolutely loved our stay at the Woodshack and would not change a thing! It was far better than we expected, so cute and cosy and cut off from the outside world.

An incredible location with a beautiful, well thought out perfectly designed hut. Really enjoyed it. You couldn't possibly regret your stay here.

The wood shack is like fairy tale life come true from the moment you walk through the enchanted forest to the sound of the stream, birds and wind surrounding you for your holiday. The owners have designed it perfectly, furnishing it with everything you could need with quirky storage solutions. The portal window in the bathroom, the hammock, the chiRead moremnea, the bowler heart lampshade and the fairy lights all give it that extra special factor. I'd go back there in a heart beat. Hide

Loved every second of our stay, surpassed our expectations. The living area was bigger than we thought. All our needs we're met when it came to living there for 5 days. Excellent location, lots of local towns for us to explore. We would highly recommend for couples to relax and get away from busy work life.
