    About this property

    Get closer to nature this holiday at this charming shepherd’s hut in the midst of the pretty Powys countryside.
    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.

    "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."

    "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."

    "We would recommend S59318. It is in a wonderful location, in the middle of the country, we walked to the local pub which took about 20minutes. The hut is extremely well designed with everything you need whilst still being spasous. It is great to have a toilet and shower inside the hut. Sue was very welcoming and provided a selection of great home made provisions. We look forward to going back soon 😃"
