  The Detail...

A converted shepherds hut, surrounded by beautiful countryside in this iconic part of Wales. Close to the market towns of Monmouth and Abergavenny, and with stunning views out across Raglan Castle and the Brecon Beacons, Cromwells Hideaway offers bijou accommodation for a romantic retreat in the Welsh countryside.

Carefully converted and lovingly restored, this former shepherds hut has been transformed into small but perfectly formed, open plan accommodation perfect for just the two of you. Close to plenty of country pubs and excellent restaurants, Cromwells Hideaway is the perfect place to rest your head and look up at the starry sky above.

Step inside and you will be amazed at how much luxury can be accommodated in such a compact space. Wood panelled walls create a feeling of space, whilst wooden floors add warmth. The country-style kitchen has everything you will need during your stay including a gas hob, fridge, kettle and toaster, as well as a welcome tea tray on arrival, and a continental breakfast for the first morning of your stay.

The living area has a large leather armchair, perfect for kicking back and relaxing in front of the wood burner, as well as a small table for enjoying a cup of tea. Underfloor heating keeps the hut warm and toasty all year round and the DAB radio will provide you with soft soulful sounds to add ambience as you prepare your evening meal or light lunch.

Sleep soundly in the beautifully dressed double bed, swathed in the finest quality linens, and watch the sights of the countryside from the window just next to it. The ensuite bathroom is cleverly conceived with a full size shower and WC.

Outside the hut is a touch of the Welsh countryside at its finest. You can enjoy alfresco dining whilst you warm yourselves around the fire pit. Cromwells Hideaway is the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of every day life and breathe fresh air once again.

The surrounding towns and countryside offer a host of things to see and do, and you will never be bored in this part of the world. Try you hand at canoeing or kayaking, take long walks in the courtly or explore the nearby towns and villages of glorious Monmouthshire. You can also explore the ancient Raglan Castle itself of take a hike through the Beacons in any weather.

Luxury and total relaxation come as standard in the delicious Shepherds Hut in this historic corner of the countryside.

Dan says...
"Perfect and peaceful stay. After the madness of Covid 19 and the overtime myself and my partner have put in as key workers this stay was well needed. Both Karen and her partner were welcoming and knowledgeable on the local area.
The hut is exactly like pictures, immaculately kept and cared for! We enjoyed our bottle of Prosecco courtesy of Karen by the outdoor log burner! Thank you!"

"Absolutely loved Cromwell's hideaway! The area is very nice, the cabin itself is of the highest quality and has everything you need. I can't recommend it enough, and we will be coming back next year for sure. Karen was very friendly and helpful also. Thanks again, see you next year!"

"Had a much needed, child free, 2 night stay here celebrating my husbands 40th and it was perfect. From the chilled Prosecco on arrival to the breakfast hamper. Such a beautiful location overlooking the Welsh countryside, would totally recommend."

Miss Lee Douglas says...
"Stayed here for 3 nights an was met by the lovely Karen on arrival.
She gave us helpful tips of what to do and see around the area including a 20min walk to the local pub in Raglan as it was such a beautiful day when we arrived.
There was a lot of attention to detail in the hut, also we were given a lovely breakfast basket with everything you need and a bottle of prosecco on arrival, nice touch.
Had a lovely few days there and when I left my jacket there, Karen kindly sent it back to me which I was ever so grateful.
Had such a relaxing time and hope to be back sometime, I'd really recommend it!!!"
