Caban Bryn Arw: Hut and pergola

General

  • Traditional shepherd's hut in a private garden with stunning views
  • In the Black Mountains, a 10-minute drive from Abergavenny
  • Self-catering kitchenette, woodburner, firepit and heated shower hut

A warm ‘croeso’ – that’s welcome in Welsh, for those who don’t know the local lingo – is guaranteed at Caban Bryn Arw, a shepherd’s hut set in a private garden in south Wales’ gorgeous Black Mountains on the eastern edges of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

As the owners of this traditionally designed space (newly renovated in 2020) quite rightly explain, the views over the countryside are to die for. The lush landscape sets the scene for a peaceful break not far from the Monmouthshire town of Abergavenny (10 minutes’ drive).

A secluded space with a spring water supply and a separate heated ‘ty bach’ – a washroom and toilet with a proper loo and hot water shower – the hut also comes with oak decking, so feet won’t get muddy, and has a woodburning stove, an outdoor seating area with solar lighting, a barbecue and a firepit. There’s secure off-road parking for your car.

Forget driving to start off with and make the most of the walks and cycle rides in the stunning local area (bikes are for rent on base). Wander up to the peak of the National Trust’s Sugarloaf and Usk Valley right from the hut before bounding around other bits of the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons. There are masses of footpaths, loads of wild swimming spots in the River Usk, and plenty of chances to go mountain biking and pony trekking.
