****BRAND NEW FOR JUNE 2017*******

Positioned off a private drive & half a mile from the nearest road, we have lovingly made a shepherd's hut that we hope will be the perfect place from which to explore the Brecon Beacons or to simply relax and admire the breath taking views of Pen-y-Fan thanks to its position at 800 ft above sea level.


We have built "The Acorn" at the end of my in-laws paddock which is 150m from their house. (We live at the bottom of the drive),It is surrounded by farmland and has its own little enclosed garden and parking area. We have designed it to cater for two people. There is however the possibility that we could accommodate a two man tent in certain circumstances - please contact us regarding this. There will be an additional charge.

The hut is beautifully cosy, as it is insulated and has 2 radiators. It has a double bed with sprung mattress and all linen is provided. (There is additional space at the foot of the bed to cater for those over 6 feet tall!) There is an en-suite with proper flushing toilet, basin, shower, towel rail and fluffy towels. There's a fitted kitchen with microwave, toaster, fridge, kettle & sink with hot and cold running water. There's complimentary tea/coffee & milk and for an additional charge you can order a breakfast (we'll pop this in the hut before your arrival). There is a TV, with no signal but plenty of DVD's. There are electric sockets & even some speakers that you can plug your devices in to. Outside there is a fire pit which doubles up as a BBQ along with a seating area. There is parking for 2 cars (6 metres from the hut) and a storage shed for bikes etc or for drying clothes.


You have your own private fenced area which comprises The Acorn and a covered area for cooking outside. There's also a lockable shed where you can store your mountain bikes etc and a lawned area where you can sit back and relax and enjoy your idilic surroundings. On the side of the shed there's a tap for washing off muddy wellies and bikes! There is space to pitch a 2 man tent at special request and you can park up to 2 cars about 6 metres from the hut. The approach to the Shepherd's hut is via a tarmac drive.


We look forward to welcoming you to our gorgeous hut. We live half a mile away at "Barnfield" which is at the bottom of the drive and we can be contacted if there are any problems or if you simply need help with anything.


In our shepherd's hut you will find:
A torch - The Brecon Beacons is a recognised dark skys reserve.
Thermos Flask - to take out on daily excursions.
Blankets and hot water bottles.
Local attraction leaflets and books.
An interesting selection of DVDs to watch.
The good news is there are plenty of places to eat in Brecon, there are also plenty of takeaways, the bad news is that none of them deliver to the village. Food can be ordered on line from Tesco, Waitrose & Asda.

Additional charges:

*Continental breakfast £6 per night per couple per night (includes cereal, bread for toasting, filter coffee & juice). This will be left in the hut before your arrival for your convenience and privacy.
*Fire-pit sparkless briquettes £6 per night
*Charcoal pack for BBQ £4 per pack
*Additional staying guests.

Please contact us to discuss prices for extra guests. The additional items can be paid for in person in cash, bank card or via pp.

We stayed at the Acorn for one night as an alternative to a BnB when we went to a wedding in Brecon beacons. We loved our stay and will definitely return for longer next time. The Acorn was so cosy and romantic and had fab views. Sophie has thought about everything and I loved looking around at all the personal touches. The Acorn was so clean and decorated exactly to the style we liked. We had the best sleep as the bed was very comfortable and the location peaceful. The value for money we got in comparison to the BnBs we were originally looking at in the area was excellent! Can't wait to return, we are already thinking about what weekends we can do!
Thank you Amy for the lovely review. I hope you both enjoyed your weddings & we look forward to seeing you again soon!

If you are looking for somewhere tranquil & relaxing this is the place for you! The shepherds hut has everything you could possibly need for a escape away into the countryside - beautiful views, an outdoor seating area with a fire bowl, a comfy bed and an amazing shower!! Sophie was amazing at every step - really helpful and accommodating which made the stay all the more Lovely! We will definitely be coming back for another visit to recharge the batteries! Brecon is a short drive away and of course there are lots of lovely walks - that's if you can tear yourself away from the hut!! Thankyou for having us!
Thank you soooo much for our little felted acorn that you made-you've set a precedent..... every time you stay I'm going to expect a beautiful home made gift! !!!!!!

We had such a lovely time at The Acorn, it was so clean and comfortable and really well equipped. After a day of exploring the local area it was lovely and relaxing just taking in the view from around the fire pit. Sophie is a great host and was really helpful and thoughtful. We would not change a thing and look forward to going back again.

Where do I begin? The Shepherd's hut is absolutely beautiful in every way possible! From the inside through to the outside, every little detail has been taken into consideration to make your stay as perfect as possible (there was even a little birthday cake left for my boyfriend as i had booked the weekend away as a birthday suprise for him- very sweet indeed)!! Concidering the hut isn't remotely close to the house, the shower and heating are excellent!! I was expecting a dribble out of the shower and in fact it is as powerful as most house showers!! The thermostat also heats up brilliantly so even on the coldest of days the hut is cosy and warm!...We especially loved the outdoor roofed seating area, as it meant we were able to sit nice and snugly with the firepit even though it was raining, the sound of the rain drops on the roof were really soothing whilst sitting next to the fire too :) We couldn't reccomend staying here enough... Sophie and her family are lovely too and made sure we had everything we needed for our weekend, offering quick and detailed communication both before and during our stay. Thank you so much Sophie!!

Beautiful peaceful retreat, would love to stay again. be very careful not to use too many electric items as it can blow the fuse. There is everything you need including blankets, shampoo and the optional breakfast is lovely. Bring thick socks or slippers the floor can get chilly.
Fortunately all our lovely guests have understood the limitations of getting electricity to a hut in a remote location and have used the 13amp supply carefully and to date, no one, yourselves included have tripped it. The hut is insulated in all the walls, ceiling and floor, but that's great advice to bring socks or slippers - thank you.

The perfect countryside getaway, it really is a little gem of a find tucked away in stunning picturesque surroundings in the Brecon beacons with views to die for. The thoughtfully placed little extras by Sophie and family just topped off what was a wonderful stay at the Acorn. We will definitely be visiting again can't recommend it enough

Beautiful property. As described but with exquisite attention to detail. Very responsive host and ideally located for Brecon Beacons. Loved it and will be back hopefully. Thank you.

My husband Tim and I have designed and built this shepherd's hut from scratch - and we're still talking! When not building things Tim likes motor bikes and Landrovers and I like horses and Lindor chocolates - oh and our gorgeous children of course!
