A collection of four shepherd`s huts in an idyllic and remote location in the Black Mountains near Hay on Wye. Close to Hay Bluff, these luxurious huts are set beside a stream in a woodland clearing and provide off grid accommodation for a group of 6-8 people.
If you’re looking for comfortably and luxurious glamping, whilst being off grid and environmentally friendly, then these huts are the perfect combo! They have been designed to have minimal environmental impact so you can be at the heart of nature. Badgers, hares, pheasants, buzzards, foxes and bats all make their home around the huts. For larger groups, a self catering house with hot tub sleeping up to ten people is a 5 minute walk away.
The huts are close to the charming town of Hay on Wye, which is on the border of Wales and England (Powys and Herefordshire). It’s known as the ‘town of books’ and the famous annual literary festival takes place there. To the south of Hay on Wye are the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons. The town also boasts boutiques and antique shops galore, as well as art galleries and a great collection of cafes and restaurants. It sits right on the River Wye so you can go fishing or kayaking. Or stay on land and enjoy the wonderful hiking, biking, horse riding or even gliding. There’s plenty on offer for sightseers too including a great array of castles, churches and monuments to explore.
