  • "Shepards hut was cosy, clean and had everything required for a comfortable stay."

    Hotub was amazing, maintained and serviced Dailey so always ready to use. Location was just perfect, no lights or sound with picturesque views, just what I needed to shut off and wind down. Highley recommended and looking to stay again soon.

  • "What an amazing stay , wish we could have stayed longer."

    Was not expecting tea and coffee and a pint of milk in the fridge. Was worried we would be cold but was not a problem at all . Hot tub under the stars topped off our weekend after a ride through the Elan Valley. The only thing we would say is maybe have a map or clear instructions where the shepherds hut is especially with the darker nights and arrival after 4 we did have to drive round to find it but it did not put us off . Thank you for a lovely stay

  • "Overall we had a lovely 2 night stay at Highland view."

    A few small points that I feel would improve the Sheperds hut. The extractor fan in the bathroom was not working and one of the blinds is broken. Outside underneath the hut is bits of broken glass, some dog muck and we could also see a pair of boxer shorts. Thanks for a wonderful stay at Highland view, the hot tub is excellent and the views are stunning.

  • "Everything was lovely!"

    We really enjoyed our stay as it was for our anniversary! Only downside was the mattress is extremely thin and causes some discomfort! But other than that I can’t fault the place and would love to come back and stay in the hobbit house

Enjoying a delightful location on a working farm which boasts panoramic views across the valley, as well as a stylish open-plan interior, Highland View makes for a fabulous pet-friendly dwelling for a couple and their two canine companions who are wanting to explore this glorious part of Mid Wales.

Park up in one of two convenient off-road parking spaces, before unloading your bags and taking in your peaceful surroundings, complete with exceptional views.

Be welcomed into the homely interior, which offers a well-equipped kitchenette where you can look forward to conjuring up delicious feasts with the help of the two-ring hob, microwave and fridge, as your other half uncorks a bottle of wine and sets the breakfast bar.

Settle down to tuck-in to a flavourful meal, as the wine is poured, and plans are made for the days ahead.

If the weather is nice, why not make dinner an alfresco affair and dine out on your private patio, where you can certainly enjoy dinner with a view.

If you’re not ready for the evening to end, treat yourself to an indulgent soak in the bubbling hot tub as you savour the excellent countryside vistas.

As the evening grows darker, wash away the day in the well-appointed shower room as your towel warms on the nearby heated towel rail.

Snuggle up with your loved one in front of the electric woodburning stove as you select the evening’s entertainment, courtesy of the Smart TV.

As your eyes grow heavy, retire to the sumptuous double bed where you can enjoy a restful night ahead of a day of adventures.

Explore your local surroundings and head straight to the bustling town of Rhayader, where you will find an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants, perfect for treating your other half to the local delicacies, as well as well-stocked convenience stores for picking up ingredients to re-create your favourite holiday dishes in the comfort of Highland View.

Pop on your walking boots and embark on a two-footed adventure with the pet-friendly Rhayader Riverside Walk which leads you alongside the River Wye.

For outdoor enthusiasts, the nature reserves of River Marteg and Gilfach are just a short drive away, where you can enjoy picturesque scenery and spot the local wildlife.
