The first hut has picture windows on both sides and pastel-shaded panelled walls, whilst its blissfully soft double bed has generous storage space beneath. A table and two comfy armchairs complete the furnishings, together with a wood burner to keep you toasty in the winter months. The adjoining second hut has two rooms which comprise of a fully-fitted kitchen complete with stove, oven and fridge. There is a separate bathroom with shower cubicle, wash basin and loo.

The shepherds' huts are positioned within 30 acres of the owner's farm and smallholding, which was awarded a certificate of recognition at the Powys Business Awards, offering a welcoming greeting with lots of friendly animals on site.

What an amazing place! The sleeping hut was incredibly comfortable and there was plenty of space due to three immense drawers beneath the bed and the fact that the bathroom and kitchen are in a separate hut. The kitchen had everything we needed and more, and the shower was super-powerful with plenty of hot water. As to the views...wow! Huge thanks Read moreto Graham and Daisy, who were really friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Our only complaint is that the week went by too quickly! Hide
