This peaceful location will be hard to leave, however before the time comes you will have a wealth of walking to enjoy with simple access into the Black Mountains and slightly further afield the Brecon Beacons National Park. Enjoy the best of both Monmouthshire and Herefordshire’s market towns with regular farmers markets and literature and art festivals. Across the border, you will find an area steeped in history with some of Europe’s finest surviving castles and countryside, Brecon Castle overlooking the River Usk, Abergavenny Castle set against the spectacular hills and Crickhowell Castle, a prominent feature within a small market town. You may wish to enjoy a spot of fishing at one of several nearby locations. At the end of a busy day, return to the blissful peace of your retreat.

Take a stroll across the meadow and arrive at the wooden bridge where you will capture your first glimpse of this hand-crafted railway carriage. The covered terrace with double doors open into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, cosy chairs sit well in front of the wood burner effect electric fire, with a beautifully finished kitchen set against the rear of the carriage, equipped with electric hob, fridge with ice compartment, and for dining you can make the most of the carriage with the small pull out table and chairs. When your day is done climb into the built in double bed with TV. There is also a shower room with WC within the carriage.

Wake up to the sound of bird song and the babbling brook whilst you take breakfast on your private terrace over-looking the water’s edge, the terrace is a perfect sun trap and enjoys a cover for chiller autumn evenings along with a warming fire pit. Outside you will also find a gas BBQ. There is parking for two cars available.

Relaxed and peaceful week in this idyllic shepherds hut. The hut is beautiful and warm, and everything provided for a comfortable stay. So much nature and the sound of the babbling brook is wonderful to go to sleep and wake up to, beats any wellness app. Thank you.

A wonderful secluded hut, excellent atmosphere with the noise from the brook filling the private garden. Access for the car is good, but for the most part it stayed where it was while we relaxed and read/dozed in the garden. The covered deck adds an excellent element to the holiday to help cope with the weather when it comes over all Welsh (rain).

Had the most beautiful stay here for our anniversary. Loved how private & remote it was, especially for our doggy to be free. The bed was super comfortable, especially being 5 months pregnant! Loved the hammock next to the water..at one point, we were joined by an otter having a swim & also a Kingfisher - thanks guys, will be back!

This is an ideal place to relax and forget the world. The facilities were great with the gas BBQ, fire pit and hammock adding to the chilled ambiance. Perfect for our dog as she had the freedom to roam safely around the brook and plenty of shade so she could chill too. Would recommend if you need to relax and turn off from the pace of city life.
