    If you’re looking for a romantic retreat with a difference then look no further; Ty Bach (meaning ‘little house’) is a lovingly crafted western red-cedar shepherd’s hut approached by a private pathway leading to its own garden overlooking pretty Powys countryside.

    Inside this cute hut, there’s a comfortable sofa by day that converts into a full-size double bed by night with a sprung mattress. Light the wood burner, relax, and enjoy a glass of wine in cosy comfort all year round. There’s a fold down table and a small kitchen area with sink and single gas burner to make a cuppa or a quick breakfast. In days gone by, a shepherd’s hut wouldn’t have had the luxury of electricity or showers, but Ty Bach has both, and at one end of the hut, you’ll find an en-suite shower room with an eco-toilet. Electricity is provided by means of a battery and solar panels, so there are lights, a double socket and 12-volt power point. With no TV or Wi-Fi, there’s nothing to distract guests from getting back to nature in this most tranquil setting. The owners live adjacent, so help is always at hand. In the nearby shed you’ll find a large insulated cool box that the owner will keep cool with fresh ice blocks, so that your provisions, wine and beer will stay chilled throughout your stay. With a barbecue and garden furniture, guests can enjoy dining al-fresco style, whilst admiring the beautiful surroundings.

    If you can drag yourself away from Ty Bach, guests are advised to explore the beautiful county of Powys. The area is a paradise for outdoorsy types with walking, cycling and mountain biking, canoeing, fishing and horse riding available nearby. Delve into the rich history of Wales’ last prince, Llewellyn, who was killed near Builth in 1282. Today the interesting market town, which is just 8 miles away, hosts Wales’ famous Royal Agricultural Show in July annually, along with other shows and fairs throughout the year. Also nearby are the historic, vibrant towns of Rhayader and Llandrindod Wells, with their independent shops, cafes and restaurants. There’s also the spectacularly stunning Elan Valley Dams, 500² miles of breathtaking scenery in the Brecon Beacons National Park, and Hay-on-Wye, which is cited as the ‘second-hand book capital of the world’. Shop 8 miles, pub serving food 1½ miles.

    "Lovely relaxing holiday in a beautiful rural location. Friendly welcome. Would highly recommend this to anyone as a base to explore Mid Wales or just to chill in the hut and read, go for local walks and escape the routine of daily life for a short time."

    "Amazing! Our host Sue was fantastic. What a magical place to get away and relax."
    Holly ‐ 3 Jan 2019
    "We absolutely loved our stay in the Ty Bach hut! Sue was amazing- greeted us, showed us how to use everything and even baked us some fresh goodies! The hut was perfect, bed big enough for myself 5,9" and my husband 6,2", fire was nice, lots of storage space under the bed, lots of little bits in the kitchen and a fenced in field next door which was perfect for the doggies!Thank you for a fabulous stay."
    Laura ‐ 17 Dec 2018
    "Such a lovely clean hide away. Very Friendly welcome. Definitely return in the summer"
    Linda ‐ 6 Nov 2018
    "We spent three days at Ty Bach with our dog at the beginning of November and loved it; we were blessed with beautiful autumnal sunshine for two days which was obviously a bonus but even in the rain it was beautiful. I have rheumatoid arthritis and was concerned the hut may feel damp and cold but it was warm and cosy with the wood burner blazing. There is only a single gas ring to cook on but there is a full size barbecue in the large storage shed. The hut is thoughtfully kitted out and, on arrival, the owner made us feel very welcome and left us a box of provisions, including delicious homemade lemon drizzle cake, bread and marmalade and fresh eggs. The bed was very comfy, the shower surprisingly good and the eco compost toilet was ... an experience. Would we go again? Definitely. NB: If you have mobility issues, Ty Bach is probably not for you because of its access down a sloping path which was covered in leaves and slippery when wet, with no handrail. Also, the three steps into the hut are quite steep and narrow."

    "Heaven in a hut! 4 days of peace n tranquility,a haven for couples that just want to kick back n relax.The owner really has thought of everything,we are seasoned to staying in huts and came very well prepared but wasn’t needed as everything was provided.Even down to a homemade lemon drizzle cake and homemade bread,with marmalade,butter and milk.Cleanliness was brilliant,the quality of duvet,pillows etc fabulous.Was pleasantly surprised with the shower,was very warm and good flow of water.Stunning scenery,owner is near by for anything you may need.We parked the car and forgot about it till the morning we left.We made use of bbq for all our cooking,being in such a stunning setting it was a pleasure.Will definitely be going again"
    Roy ‐ 26 Oct 2018
    "We loved the peace and quiet, which is what we wanted. The bad weather on arrival made the journey tiring, but the welcome pack was just that, most welcome! It was a nice touch to have that available. Sue was most friendly and welcoming. We were very happy with our stay."
