General

  • Peaceful, cosy and fully-equipped shepherd's hut in a wildlife haven
  • Surrounded by woodland, streams and river with its own private garden
  • Spectacular sunsets and stargazing 25 minutes from the coast

Mosey along to Carmarthenshire to say a merry hi to Morris. And make plenty of time too for the many – many – things to see and do around this part of west Wales: you can be out and about here for weeks.

Morris The Shepherd's Hut is a comfy and cosy hut half a mile from Gelliwen, among lush wooded scenery surrounded by woodland, streams and a river. It's fully equipped for self-catering stays, with a kitchen and dining area, outdoor seating, a multi-fuel burner, a shower and toilet, and a bedroom with double bed and electric blanket.

Also at your disposal is a private, secluded garden with an arbour, seating, a barbecue, a picnic bench and a bee and butterfly box. The site is a wildlife haven, with owl boxes dotted around (keep an eye out for the resident tawny owl), buzzards, red kites and sparrowhawks soaring above, foxes and rabbits in the local lanes – the very keen of eye might see otters in the river too...

Bring your camera along, as this is a region of spectacular sunsets and clear stargazing nights, where the Plough and the Milky Way shine brightly overhead and where shooting stars are regularly visible. Around the area, Morris is 25 to 45 minutes from seaside resorts and beaches, in a land of riverside and woodland walks, wildlife parks and local chocolate and cheese factories, all about 45 minutes' drive from Swansea.

Car parking is available on site. For the essentials, a cash point is at St Clears 10 minutes' drive away and cosy cottage pubs are at Meidrim and Trelech, five and 10 minutes away.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Morris in fact I'm sure we could of stayed longer, if your looking for a peaceful getaway with beautiful scenery then this is definitely the place to stay your surrounded by wildlife and just the sound of nature. The hosts were perfect we took provisions with us but when we arrived we were surprised how much was already there for you and more. This was our first time staying in a shepherds hut we've both been avid campers and just fancied something a little different and I must admit we looked at a lot over the past couple of months and this one just appealed to both our likings and it did not disappoint we are both looking forward to staying there again and I'm hoping it will be very soon.

    EVERYTHING !!!.......My good lady and myself value our privacy greatly and that is why the idea of a holiday let, within an owner's grounds, has never appealed. Well, Frances and Bill Fullick have certainly blown that doubt completely out of the water! The peace and tranquility ( although i should mention the rush hour traffic, we saw no more than five cars in a 24hr period and as we hardly left the garden that is an accurate account ) was sorely needed by us both and coupled with the surrounding nature ( Finches, Robins and two visits by a family of six woodpeckers, not forgetting Buzzards and Red Kites circling the valley Morris is set in ) we found the perfect antidote to our stress. Lest i forget the resident cats, Trini and Tigs....many a smile and a chuckle with those two characters. All you need is within a short drive, so provision hunting is an easy task, as is accessing some of the best of Wales....if you feel the need...frankly we didn't. We got all the 'feel good' we needed on site. The owners are completely unobtrusive, completely set on providing you with a marvellous service and completely bloody marvellous people to boot. You have been warned ! Thanks guys ! We will be back for sure.

    Leaving.....even our local birds sound too loud now ( i jest not ).

    This is such a lovely Shepards hut with everything you need and more! Decorated perfectly down to the fine detail. The fridge was fully stocked witch was a lovely surprise. DVD player and log burner was a nice touch. Loved the private garden with bbq and fire pit, we spent hours outside by the fire. Morris is set in a lovely peaceful area great to unwind. The hosts were lovely, very welcome and always happy to help. We hope to be back soon!

    What is not to like! This is an amazing Shepherd's Hut where the functionality and decor have clearly been well thought through. Set in its own private garden with seating and covered BBQ area, with a stream to one side, a river opposite and a wood to explore behind it. During the day, the soundtrack of birdsong and multiple visits by a local red robin, during the night, an amazing array of stars to gaze at (weather permitting!). Inside the hut, there is everything you need for a relaxing stay. Lots of DVDs, books and games, really comfortable bed, fully functioning en-suite, tube heaters and a log burner to keep you toastie if it is cold! The hosts are very welcoming and provided more than enough food and drink for my entire stay! It is such a beautiful part of the country, and so peaceful. I definitely hope to go back there.
