  • "Wow, can not recommend this shepherds hut enough."

    Amazing views, so quiet and perfect for relaxing. Both huts now fenced off so any concerns of dogs wandering not an issue. We will be back

  • "We stayed here after a few days camping in the Gower-the weather had turned wet and windy and the campsite was very busy."

    We booked at short notice and the shepherds hut provided the perfect place to recharge our batteries. The owners were accommodating in getting the hut ready at short notice and Sykes were great at arranging this for us. We had a great couple of days-the hut was clean and had everything we needed for a peaceful respite. The view was stunning. We visited the red kite feeding centre which was nearby and is not to be missed-lots of walks nearby as well. Overall we had a lovely stay and would recommend this property.

  • "The Claerwen shepherd's hut was a lovely place to stay for our mid week getaway."

    Very comfortable, clean, with everything you need to make it feel like home. I loved the underfloor heating at night when it got a little chilly. Waking up to the views of the hills, having breakfast outside in the sun and listening to the lambs bleating. The peace and quiet in this area is divine. At night the area is a dark sky area so we had the pleasure of a clear starry sky and a full moon. All that was missing was a little fire pit. Definitely recommend a stay here and I hope to stay again sometime soon.

  • "I really enjoyed staying in the shepherd's hut (Claerwen)."

    It was very peaceful and relaxing. Just what I needed. The hut was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The owners kindly left milk, welsh cakes and a bottle of sparkling soft drink for me on arrival, which was a lovely touch and much appreciated. The scenery outside the hut and nearby was stunning.

  • "The only problem with the Claerwen hut is that the bedroom window let a big draught through, but apart from that it was comfy and ideal for me and my dog, thank you, Jim."

Ty Llwyd Shepherds Huts

Remotely set, the huts make for a fantastic getaway for a couple and their canine companion or for a group of four looking for an idyllic country escape. The huts boast a homely interior which has everything you will need during your stay, including a two-ring hob and microwave for conjuring up delicious meals. There is also a TV for catching up on your favourite series after a day of exploring, and a handy shower room for freshening up. Guests will benefit from an enclosed garden which boasts expansive country views, ideal for taking in your surroundings over your morning coffee. Ideally located just a short distance from Rhayader, where there is a delightful selection of pubs, restaurants and tearooms, as well as shops and the CARAD Rhayader Museum and Gallery. Walkers and cyclists will delight at the trails and routes on offer throughout the Elan Valley, but don't worry if you haven't brought your bike as you can hire one in Rhayader! Just a little further is Llandrindod Wells, home to the National Cycle Museum, an excellent golf course and the Rock Park and Spa, perfect for a leisurely walk. For a day at the beach, head further afield to Aberystwyth, where you will find a fantastic selection of sandy beaches, as well as the historic former castle grounds and the Vale of Rheidol Railway.
