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.

    Lovely relaxing holiday in a beautiful rural location. Friendly welcome. Would highly recommend this to anyone as a base to explore Mid Wales or just to chill in the hut and read, go for local walks and escape the routine of daily life for a short time.

    We absolutely loved our stay in the Ty Bach hut! Sue was amazing- greeted us, showed us how to use everything and even baked us some fresh goodies! The hut was perfect, bed big enough for myself 5,9" and my husband 6,2", fire was nice, lots of storage space under the bed, lots of little bits in the kitchen and a fenced in field next door which was perfect for the doggies! Thank you for a fabulous stay.
