Shepherd’s Hut

Shepherds Hut

This is the hidden county on the edge of England with vistas stretching far into Wales. This is the land of castles and orchards. This is tranquility where the only traffic jam is a slow tractor. This is the Welsh Marches. This is ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’.

Stroll out from your Shepherd’s Hut through our orchard and take the path into the wood, cross the Welsh border down to the River Monnow and Skenfrith Castle. Walk up to Garway, have a pint or a meal in the Moon Inn on the common and visit the tiny church founded by the Knights Templar. View seven counties from the top of Garway Hill - surely the finest viewpoint in all of Herefordshire?

Explore. Canoe down the River Wye. Cycle off-road in the Forest of Dean. Walk in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Shop in Hay-on-Wye’s famous bookshops and make a date with the Hay Festival. Feast at the Abergavenny Food Fair.

Spend some of your time in Herefordshire receiving expert, personalised tuition in one of a range of crafts or activities: Basketry, Blacksmithing, Felt-making or Singing. Come in September or October to experience our apple-picking and juice-making holidays and take home a taste of Herefordshire!

‘Peace, beautiful countryside and views. Adventures, inspiration. Thank you for sharing your slice of heaven... we feel so refreshed.’ (Chris & Fiona)
