Property code: BN233

A cosy and quirky shepherd’s hut surrounded by beautiful countryside in a peaceful national park. It is the perfect romantic bolthole with a wood-fired hot tub to create a feeling of luxury.

The perfect romantic retreat which welcomes your beloved third wheel with four legs, pack your bags and escape to this charming shepherd’s hut. Brimming with charm, enjoy the simple way of life and get back to basics for a while. Basic doesn’t mean lack of creature comforts, as this hut boasts a wood-fired hot tub and wood burner for cosy nights both inside and out.

Step up and into your home from home and unpack your provisions, not forgetting the treats and bones which are well-deserved after epic stick chasing adventures and wild swims. With all you need to rustle up small feasts, find the Belfast sink hiding away under the worktop so you can wash up and pack away any leftovers which will make delicious picnic goodies tomorrow. For a sundowner feast, sizzle up the BBQ and dine alfresco, keeping an eye on your pup who will be in doggy heaven in the vast surrounding grounds packed with new scents. Make the most of clear nights and stargaze from the comfort of your bubbling hot tub (please note additional charges apply), before drifting off in the comfortable double bed. Rise and shine and give the dog a bone before heading out to explore.

In the heart of the Crai Valley, step outside and make your way onto one of many paths. A 3.5-mile trip will take you to the Cray Reservoir, whilst a 3.5-mile journey in the opposite direction will lead you to the village of Sennybridge where you can tuck into tasty plates of food and titbits at one of the dog-friendly pubs. Make the longer journey of 15 miles to arrive at the highest peak in South Wales, Pen-y-Fan, where panoramic views await along with a plethora of exciting scents and hopefully, a rewarding handful of treats.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

We loved the shepherd's hut: cosy, clean and well-equipped. Would recommend and would love to go back. The little woodburning fire was an especially nice touch.
