The Details...

We love a stay where it feels totally off the beaten track, yet in reality it's really very easy to get back to the real world, find the shops and stroll to the pub, the Writer's Cabin pulls this off with ease!

Hidden away in a wooded valley, the setting is breathtaking and the Shack has its own story to tell. Originally a writer’s cabin, the owner Robert Penn wrote "The Man Who Made things out of Trees" here. Rob cut down a native ash tree to discover just how many things could be made from this marvellous tree and many of the things he made can be found within the structure of the Writer's Cabin today. Rest assured there’s also lashing of home comforts and stylish touches, courtesy of Rob's wife and artist Vicks.

The outside space is fantastic and includes a huge oak deck for lazing and lounging, perfect for barbeques and toasting marshmallows, complete with table and chairs for dining under the tree canopy. The hammock by the stream is there for lazy afternoons with a book and a glass of something chilled. Throughout the woodland, which is private to you alone, there are handy piles of firewood and a number of native birds that can be seen and heard throughout the day.

Inside the Shack, there's a cosy sofa for two, nestled by the wood burning stove, with jolly blankets and bright coloured dining chairs overlooking the woodland. The kitchen was built by hand, with several items from Rob's tree included, as well as a proper fridge, electric cooker, pots and pans and everything you’re likely to need.

The bedroom is intimate and romantic, with a proper double bed, handmade wooden panelling and hanging rails made from the branches of Rob’s tree. There's a proper shower with hot and cold running water, as well as a basin and loo, with towels and soap included. The indoor space has been designed to take full advantage of the setting, with large windows bringing as much of the outside in as possible.

The Shack treads lightly with its eco footprint, however unusually for a glamping site, it does have mains electricity, so charging iPads or any other electrical item is really easy, there are board games and plenty of holiday reads available too.

An incredible romantic setting, surrounded by native trees, birdsong and the hills of the Brecon Beacons National Park...utter bliss!

In the mood for a hike? Stunning trails lead right from the Shack door. Walk the Sugar Loaf Mountain, which is just across the lane, or stride out into the Brecon Beacons National Park, or Wye Valley, both in very easy reach. Once home to the National Road Championships, there are also exceptional road trails and mountain biking within the area.
