  • "I was fortunate to find the Rabbit Hill Hut."

    It was very comfortable for me and my two dogs. The weather wasn't brilliant, but even storms didn't spoil our stay. In fact, the driving winds and lashing rain made the 'hut' feel even cosier.

    Enough room for two adults and two small dogs. The carriage was well equipped and cosy. The owners were very helpful and always available to answer any questions.

  • "This is one of the best Huts we have ever stayed at."

    The layout inside had been really cleverly designed to make best use of the space. At one end of the hut you have a proper-sized powerful shower with WC and basin. At the opposite end you have a very comfortable double 'Captain's' Cabin bed with room for storage underneath and a great view from the window; in-between you have the sink, cooker, fridge with freezer compartment and everything as accurately described in the details, The place was very clean and tidy and the space was bigger than we expected; definitely not the size of a rabbit hut! But what sets this hut above all others is the covered outdoor space, separate from the hut itself, and equipped with a table, benches and sun-loungers. Although, the roof of this had a few leaks, it never stopped us from eating all our meals there and sitting under it, even on a rainy evening. We also enjoyed the chiminea and the generous supply of logs in the patio area outside the hut..The owners, Keith, Darren and Nicola were very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, very quiet and private and easy to reach the canal and cycle routes nearby by foot. We hardly used the car the whole time we were there. We had a good meal in the local pub (15 - 20 mins walk) and also enjoyed longer walks to Crickhowell and Abergavenny using the canal paths. We will definitely, be back again next year.

The property

Resting in the village of Govilon, the quaint shepherd’s hut, Rabbit Hill Hut.

Built using recycled materials from around the farm, this wonderful hut welcomes a couple and their four-legged companion to explore the countryside of Wales.

With off-road parking for one car, this cheerful sage shepherds hut encourages you to make yourself at home in the lovely studio layout, where there is a well-presented kitchen housing a selection of amenities, two chairs, a TV and a double bed gazing out over the countryside, as well as a refreshing shower room.

Overlooking stunning countryside views across the rolling hills, dine alfresco in the garden, trying out the barbecue and toast marshmallows beside the firepit, or later in the evening, stargaze using the telescope provided.

Pets can roam freely in the enclosed pen as owners enjoy a cup of tea and admire the views.

The local village of Govilon houses a pub, restaurant and convenience store, so why not enjoy a hearty meal, or stock up on picnic essentials?

Scenic walks can be enjoyed beside the canal at Govilon Wharf, heading off into the local countryside.

The bustling town of Abergavenny offers further eateries, a golf course and a local museum where guests can learn more about local history and heritage.

There is plenty for history enthusiasts to explore, including Blaenavon World Heritage Centre and the fascinating remains of Blaevanon Iron Works, Big Pit National Coal Museum, Crickhowell Castle and Clydach Gorge.

The Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) are full of amazing scenic walks and wildlife, so spend a whole day exploring the beautiful countryside on offer before ending your day in a local pub with a glass of your favourite beverage.

Visit Newport for a day beside the seaside and try out a game of golf at Newport Golf Club.

All of this and more with a stay at Rabbit Hill Hut.
