Property code: 42859

Hidden in the heart of the hills, this private nest of beautiful handmade shepherds’ huts provide the ultimate glamping adventure. Relax by the stream or gather around the fire pit in the evenings.

The perfect spot to get back to nature without giving up too many of your everyday luxuries, this glamping campsite is ideal for a family weekend away. Sleeping eight, kids will love commandeering their own luxury campsite, and adults will relish in the benefits of hot running water, solar-powered electricity and the peaceful location. Set on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National park, you are moments from enjoyable hiking excursions.

 

Pairs of family members will enjoy a spot of freedom with these unique sleeping arrangements, which offer double beds in four hand-built shepherds huts. Each hut has a comfortable bed and wood burner, creating a cosy spot for late night relaxation. Expect to enjoy plenty of family time throughout the day, however, as the rest of the generous space around the hut features a communal area for spending quality time together. The Utility Hut has a fully functioning kitchen, ideal for cooking up a celebration meal, and a practical bathroom. Dining takes place at a covered outdoor dining set, alongside a fully-equipped BBQ and wood burner, creating a wonderful atmosphere when ablaze. Surrounded by fields and greenery as far as the eye can see, you can really let your children run wild throughout their stay here, utilising the swing set and ample rural space for their games and activities.

Ideally located on the outskirts of the beautiful Brecon Beacon's National Park, the property is conveniently close to a host of outdoor activities. Surrounded by the Black Mountains you're never far from hiking and cycling routes that'll no doubt exhaust even the more advanced adventurers. 6 miles away you'll find an outdoor adventure centre with nail-biting activities including abseiling, zip wiring and gorge walking. If you can keep yourselves awake by the time the sun sets, you must venture out after dark for a spot of stargazing. The Brecon Beacons National Park is an International Dark Sky reserve and boasts some of the clearest and darkest skies in the UK. On a clear night you can see the Milky Way, stunning constellations and the occasional shooting star, perfect for young budding astronomers. After catching up on some sleep, head up to the nearby market town of Hay-on-Wye (5.5 miles), where you'll find country pubs and independent eateries. This small town is well known for its impressive number of second hand book stores, so be sure to pick up a book that you can enjoy by the wood-burner when you get back to camp.

A very special retreat set in a wonderful location. The huts were beautifully furnished with very comfy beds. We enjoyed all of this whilst preparing and cooking around the open fire and BBQ. Planning our next trip already!

We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience . The only comment is that there is a rather long and steep walk down to the huts which feels even longer and steeper when walking back Up from the huts.

What an absolutely fantastic place to stay! The walk from the car park to the huts is very steep with a wheelbarrow and some of our party did struggle a bit but it's totally worth it for such a feeling of isolation.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Huts in the Hills and would recommend it to our friends and family.

Absolutely loved our time here. The set up is really great and being off the grid for a week was welcomed by all of us. The huts are kept to a great standard and were really clean when we arrived. The location is great if you want to get away from the usual noise and had many wonderful nights around the fire. Definitely recommend.

We had a fabulous time at the huts with our children (12, 10 and 8). We love glamping, and this was the perfect balance of "back to nature" and creature comforts. The site is completely secluded and in a beautiful setting. Sarah the owner was very quick to respond to a couple of minor requests we made. The children are already begging to return!
