Situated midway between the lovely small "book" town of Hay-on-Wye and the village of Glasbury, we offer comfortable accommodation in a twin room with private bathroom with shower and bath, and a wonderful full "Welsh" breakfast in our home which is a 16th century cruck construction converted barn with exposed beams thoughout. Set back some 200 metres off the road and with extensive views over fields towards the Radnorshire hills, it is very private and peaceful. Our guests are treated as house guests. The twin bedroomed room is furnished with antique 19th Century Victorian iron and brass bedsteads with really comfortable new "Seventh Heaven" mattresses. As we live in a small complex of converted barns (6 in total), it is very private and quiet. The view from the bedroom is over the garden and adjoining fields to the Radnorshire Hills in the distance. Private and safe parking is available right outside the front door. Guests are welcome to come and go as they please and will be given keys on arrival. We like our guests to feel as though they are house guests and we have many guests who return year on year as they feel so comfortable with us. We have a lovely private enclosed garden and guests are welcome to make use of this as well. We are happy to help guests with our knowledge of the local area and recommend walking, cycling routes etc., and help with recommendations of local pubs and restaurants and shopping. A cooked breakfast is served between 8 and 10am. Should you require an earlier continental type breakfast this can be provided. Situated on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, we are ideally situated for exploring this most beautiful region. To the south west we are within 35 minutes drive of parking to access the famous twin summits of Pen-y-Fan and Corn Du. The Central Beacons is the highest mountain range in southern Britain. Many walkers make for the famous twin summits of Pen-y-Fan and Corn Du for challenge and adventure. However, the 520 square mile extent of our Park also contains three other upland areas, the Black Mountain range, the Fforest Fawr massif and the Black Mountains, all with their own distinctive character and spectacular walking potential. To the south east we are within 30 minutes drive to access parking to walk the well known Black Mountain (also known as "the Cat's Back"). The Black Mountain features as the lightly fictionised location in the book by Bruce Chatwin, "On the Black Hill". To the south, we are within a short 10 minute drive to access parking for Hay Bluff. Hay Bluff (Welsh: Penybegwn) is a prominent hill at the northern tip of the Black Mountains, an extensive upland massif which straddles the border between south-east Wales and England. The mountain sits on an escarpment which faces north and runs roughly east-west, the next peak in the west being the Twmpa. The flat summit of Hay bluff overlooks the middle Wye Valley and the book town of Hay-on-Wye and is marked by a triangulation pillar at a height of 677 metres (2,221 ft). The hill is largely within the Welsh county of Powys though parts of its eastern flanks lie within the English county of Herefordshire. Outdoor pursuits feature prominently in the area and there are ample opportunities to engage in canoeing, caving, cycling, fishing, golf, mountain biking, horse-riding, rock climbing, sailing and other watersports, sightseeing underground at Dan yr Ogof Showcaves and The Big Pit, wild life and bird watching. If you don't have your own transport there is a bus service at the bottom of our drive which runs throughout day time hours. The service runs fom Hereford (nearest train station) via Hay-on-Wye to Brecon. This service runs approximately every 2 hours. Robert and Clare moved to their present home near Hay on Wye some 11 years ago when he retired after thirty years in the horse racing industry, the last twenty as a racehorse trainer at Newmarket in Suffolk. Clare works as a photographer and is also involved in the production of a local magazine called Wye Local which covers events and news in the local area surrounding Hay and nearby towns and villages. Robert is also involved in working for this magazine and the sister magazine Local Beacon which covers the Brecon area. Robert is also involved in hospitality being part of the front of house teams at two local pubs/restaurants, the Bridge Inn at Michaelchurch Escley and The Harp Inn at nearby Glasbury. Robert and Clare have travelled extensively in the UK and across the world and have a wealth of experience in looking after their guests and clients.

The Shepherd’s hut was built to our specification. We wanted to ensure that it could accommodate a full-length bed for maximum comfort (who wants to sleep crunched up unless you’re a dormouse?) as well as a wet room to incorporate a shower, basin and an upmarket self-composting loo. A drop-leaf oak table was fitted under the triple windows to maximize working space (although it is difficult to remain focused on tasks when the view is of the beckoning Brecon Beacons, but it’s great for somewhere to spread out the weekend papers). The attention to detail is wonderful with oak floorboards, underfloor central heating (bliss in the wet room especially), sheep’s wool insulation in the walls and a wood burning stove for good measure. Even the ironmongery was sourced and made locally. Once built, it was finally winched into place (quite a feat of engineering in itself) so that the largest window looks out towards the aforementioned Brecon Beacons, the window over the bed looks up across the field towards a majestic oak whilst the view from the stable door is of Hay Bluff and the Black Mountains. Amanda set to with her sewing machine to make the soft furnishings as well as upholstering the chairs. She then rummaged around in the barn and in local shops to find the remaining pieces to give the hut its finishing touches. Everything has been thought of; from wine glasses to corkscrews, hairdryers to bathrobes, toiletries to tea-making facilities, books and maps to picnic rugs and firebowl… The only item we ask you to bring is a torch or two. The Brecon Beacons is only the fifth destination in the world to be granted international dark sky reserve status. Although magical and romantic to have solely moonlight and starlight to guide you, it can make it tricky to see where you are going. Depending on the vagaries of the weather, a full Breakfast is served in the main house (across the lawn) or outside on the patio. Min 3 nights
