  • "We had a fantastic break away from all the worries of this year."

    We were supposed to be in greece for our 25th wedding anniversary but we booked this when it got cancelled. We enjoyed it completely out in the middle of nowhere,. It was a shame the nearby pub was closed due to health issues with the owner but we still had a lovely time and thanks to the information in the hut found a lovely put to have sunday lunch in. The nearest town was newtown and only a 10 minute drive away. yes there were flies but we found a fly catcher in the cupboard and hung one up aswell which solved the problem. A lovely hut which was cosy and memorable. We spent a much needed week together with nothing else to worry about. We will be returning next year. Thank you

  • "The flies!!!"

    !! So many of them! It stopped us from wanting to spend time in the actual cabin. Beautiful location and setting though, nothing around for miles so take all food etc with you is essential. The hot bub was a lovely touch. We loved the fire pit too, so more wood etc would of been welcomed. Overall really enjoyed our peace and tranquillity in the middle of no where.

    We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your time at the hut. With reference to flies, we have mentioned this previously but the situation is beyond our control as the property is situated in a livestock area. We would love to see you holidaying with us again in the future! Property Owner

  • "Absolutely enjoyed every second of the holiday."

    Only thing i found was an issue was the flys that would constantly bombard you. We found we quickly depleted the fly spray provided and found ourselves bringing and fly trap from home. Other than that the holiday was perfect, with a perfect location to.

    Thank you for lovely comments. I am sorry if you may have encountered issues with flies during your stay. I would like to add that the hut is situated in a livestock area and it the weather was very humid during your time away. We provide fly spray and sticky traps for your stay which should be located under the kitchen sink. Property Owner

  • "Was a beautiful, peaceful and private get away."

    We had everything we needed. The only downside was the 20 minute walk to the pub which isn’t open this time of year! But otherwise we couldn’t fault the hut!

  • "We came across the Shepard’s hut after another accommodation falling through."

    Anyway it more than met our expectations. Communication was great and the accommodation was fantastic. both myself and my partner needed a break and this came up trumps. We’ve both never been so relaxed as we were at at the hut. We will both most certainly be returning next year. Thanks again x

  • "Beautiful cabin with great views!"

    ! Stunning part of the world, would recommend visiting Elan Valley as the landscape was beautiful and the walks fantastic. Only minor issue was the hot tub was only at 20c when we arrived and takes several hours to heat up. Overall a great stay and would love to come back!
