Although intrigued and attracted by the notion of having the welsh hills to ourselves, I was worried that we would be cold, Absolutely not! in fact I was even too hot which is unheard of! We loved the quarry hut, it was superbly equipped, no attention to detail left unattended, finished to a high specification, we loved it and have already recommended it to our friends. It's cosy not cramped and great value.
I literally fell in love with this place. Its peace and quiet - heaven on earth! Fresh air, stupendous views all wrapped up in a golden nugget of luxury glamping! Underfloor heating, super comfy beds, all the necessities that you need....AND fossil hunting on your doorstep. Emma the owner was so friendly and helpful. I cannot praise this place enough. Its remote - so don't be expecting a costa coffee shop in the local town or constant Wi-Fi, but this is a place to UNWIND so do so. Perfect, perfect views. The owners best hope I don't come into some money or I will be snapping this up for every week of all the years I can pay for!!
There are very few places in the world with fossils of this quality and quantity, and even inexperienced fossil hunters can find something well preserved and recognisable. But this is not just a good place for palaeontologists; it also offers amazing views, seclusion, and good hiking possibilities (unfortunately I didn’t have time to try any of the interesting-looking tracks).
The hut itself boasts central heating, hot water and electricity, and although tiny is well-thought-out. A lovely haven of comfort to return to after a day out in the wilds!
Note that while access is down a farm track, it’s fairly well maintained and even a low-slung car can be got down it with a bit of care.
Just returned from a trip and my wife and I loved it! The hut is clean, warm and comfortable and contains everything you could possibly need! We were lucky with the weather, but the nights were cold and we enjoyed being cosy and warm sitting watching the light fade on such an amazing view.
The fossil hunting was great and with the quarry only five minutes away, it was easy to take a break for a coffee without intruding too much on the hunting! A lovely experience!
My self, daughter and grandaughter thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was the first time we had been to Wales for an extended period. We spent a lot of time in the fascinating nearby quarry searching for trilobites but made time for trips to Llandrindod Wells and Aberystwyth (which took longer than Google said it would). We passed the red kite feeding station but didn't leave ourselves enough time to stop, however, we did see a lot of kites around the area.
The Hut was wonderfully well equipped and cosy. You could feel the effort and thought that went into the hut. (Thank you Emma). We ate outside when we could just to see the views. Warm drinks around the firepit as the sun went down was great. Unfortunately the weather was too cloudy to see stars, so we'll have to book again.
We really felt that this was a perfect holiday. Things to do, places to go and a real sense of getting away from everything. in fact we only saw one person near the hut and he was lost, so we pointed out a path we had walked the previous evening and he was happy. All was well with the world again.
We had a super stay here. Totally home from home for us, and we loved it. There was 4 of us (including 2 young children) we didn't spend much time inside because the weather was glorious! But what a beautiful little place to stay! The double bed is very comfy and I love the idea of it being 'tucked away'
The hut was very clean. The kids loved the little Welsh cakes as an extra! Very kind! We walked most evenings and the views are amazing! There is plenty to see and do around here! All in all a great, great stay! If we ever visit the Welsh Show again. We will be back! Thanks so much Emma & Family!
The shepherds hut is beautifully fitted out and really comfortable. There were four of us two children two adults and never a dull moment. The views and peace and quiet were great, sheep cows fossils and red kites. And all within easy reach of a supermarket...we will be back
