In bygone days, no two shepherd’s huts were ever the same. Each one was lovingly crafted using reclaimed items from around the farm and local area, and carefully pieced together to keep the wolves and the wind out. Shepherds would traditionally live in the hut during lambing season, safe and cosy yet close to nature.
Today, Ffynnon Beuno Shepherd’s huts offer all the romance of traditional shepherd hut living combined with the convenience of modern facilities. Individually designed by a local craftsman, made from the highest quality timbers with loving attention to detail, this luxury hut will make your stay with us absolutely unforgettable.

Beuno’s Hut, is named after St. Beuno, (say bye no), who, in his lifetime was credited with raising seven people from the dead, including his niece, the virgin Winefride (Gwenffrewi), and his disciple and cousin, Aelhaiarn. Winefride has her own dedicated chapel at Holywell where Beuno’s stone from his original pulpit, can still be found at the side of the well. The Holywell chapel is well worth a visit and there is a interpretation centre which covers the story of Winefride’s life, death and resurrection at the hands of her uncle.
The hut is fully solar powered and heated by its own wood burning stove with self catering facilities and its own fully equipped shower and toilet and we provide clean towels and basic toiletries. We provide all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans. The highest quality bedding, superbly comfy mattress, alpaca wool blankets and fabulous views make this the cosiest getaway ever. We even sell our own homemade charcoal for the perfect BBQ, and as needed, we provide timber for the stoves supplied from our own woodland management program. We even provide bluetooth speakers so that you can enjoy all this with your favourite music or bring your own DVDs to enjoy a romantic film on the flat screen TV.
Relax in our wildflower meadow, surrounded by wildlife in your own orchard and unplug from the stress of modern living. Cool your beer or wine in our babbling stream and at night, gaze out at our dark skies in the tranquillity of our beautiful valley. Sadly we cannot accommodate dogs due to the livestock.
Do remember, the hut is in a field and you do need to bring boots and waterproofs.
