“A little piece of heaven!!”
Reviewed August 29, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Having just spent a few days at the quarry hut we are already thinking of another visit! For those who like peace & quiet in the countryside this is a little piece of heaven! Plenty of wildlife, we saw red kites, buzzards, kestrels even an owl, not to mention lots of friendly sheep!
Fossil hunting was great fun too for first timers! Although my favourite pastime was just taking in the amazing views for hours on end!
Thanks to Emma for being a great host & very attentive

“Wonderful opportunity to combine an unusual place to stay with fossil hunting”
Reviewed August 28, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The view from the hut is fabulous with red kites hovering and your only neighbours are sheep. Compact but with the interior well planned and good storage space it has all you need for a get away from it all holiday. Perfect for myself and my son as he is in his third year of a palaeontology degree and we were able to combine fossil hunting in the quarry very near to the hut with a chill out holiday. The price of your stay also includes access to the quarry and we were the only fossil hunters the entire week.
Great location to explore the countryside or coast and we also had a day in Abergavenny which I can recommend. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere but local amenities are not far away.
Emma and Lyndon (he built the hut) the owners are very welcoming and supplied us with local information and fresh towels during the week.
It ticked all the boxes for us and you get to keep your fossil finds.
