Peaceful shepherd’s hut glamping with mountain views, set in the Brecon Beacons National Park

Pitch sizes on camping and glamping sites are usually measured in metres but we’ve found a place where acres are more appropriate. Sennybridge Shepherd’s Hut, on the Northern side of the Brecon Beacons, has one of them. Stay there and it will be all yours along with glorious views, easy access to the adventures of the National Park and a tiny, tidy home which has been made with a lot of local love.

Situated in a field between two villages within the Brecon Beacons National Park, Sennybridge Shepherd’s Hut has been a labour of love for local builder Martin and his partner Diane. It was first conceived as a getaway for their own personal use but the project evolved as they realised that their little home and their big field were just too good to keep to themselves.

The field has deliberately untamed corners; a wildlife-rich pond, a meadow area and newly-planted native fruit trees, but the hut is as neat as a hotel. Inside, it has whitewashed walls, a made-up double bed, a little kitchenette and its own shower room and toilet. Throw open the hut’s double stable doors and there’s a raised deck with a hammock and outdoor furniture; the perfect perch from which to watch the acrobatics of red kites which are fed nearby. Once they have gone home, you should stay out as there’s a nightly display which is just as impressive as the daily one. The Beacons is designated as a Dark Sky Reserve and the stars certainly seem to shine brighter out in the field.

You can walk the leafy ‘back road’ to reach the local shop, cafe and pubs in Sennybridge or Defynnog. For picnic supplies that are fresh from the farm, take a short drive to Penpont with its organic goodies or pick your own at Aberbran Fawr, where you might find Diane at her day job, behind the farm shop counter. There are plenty of places to unpack your hamper from the banks of the Monmouth and Brecon Canal to the peak of Pen-y-Fan, the highest mountain in South Wales. But don’t overlook what might be the ultimate picnic spot – your very own field in the National Park.

The Owner Says

You will find yourself relaxing in our 2 acres of idyllic countryside, enriched with nature.  Peaceful and secluded, and yet a short walk to nearby sleepy villages.
Take a stroll along the River Senni, which leads you to the village of Sennybridge, or in the opposite direction, to St Cynogs Church in Defynnog, which is the home of one of the oldest Yew Trees in Britain, some believe this tree could be 5000 years old.
We hope all our guests enjoy their stay as much as we have enjoyed creating a memorable get away.
