The Shepherd's Hut @ Upper Gelli. Wow! What a special place this is. It felt like escaping to a different world. Absolutely everything has been considered, the special touches everywhere. We were lucky enough to win this as a prize, it has to be the best raffle prize ever!!! We will definitely be back. Thank you Ros and Gary. Lisa & Mark.

The Shepherd's Hut @ Upper Gelli. A quick one night escape from the hustle and bustle of city life – and couldn’t have asked for more! The little touches on arrival – welsh cakes & bara brith, music in each room – makes you know that your hosts care about your stay. Sitting out watching the stars in the evening with a glass of red, then with a brew seeing the mist burn off in the morning a highlight and the BBQ hut! Costing up one of those for the garden…! Thank you Ros & Gary for such a wonderful stay. Will be back for 2 nights next time… El & Ross

The Shepherd's Hut @ Upper Gelli. What an amazingly beautiful treasure. All the small touches are truly thought out and made our stay cosy and personal. Thank you for the scrumptious Bara Brith and Welsh cakes, the Welsh products are lovely and we couldn't have wanted for a more romantic place to just get away. Will be looking to come back. Dioch yn fawr.

What a place! Amazing views, close to nature and so peaceful. Whilst only a short stay we feel re-energised and very relaxed. You have thought of everything down to the smallest detail! To wake up each morning with views of Cader is special to me and brought back many cherished memories. Thank you!

Eilisha & Joe. January 2018. Northamptonshire.

Gary & Ros. We would just like to thank you for the most amazing night! The Shepherd's Hut is out of this world and with the added bonus of the BBQ Hut our stay was magical. We were very much in need of a break and your little spot of heaven provided us with the relaxation we needed. From the squirrels to the sheep and the mountains to the fields the place is beyond idyllic. There isn't a touch you haven't added and our stay was perfect. Thank you for one of our most memorable trips... xx

Will be back.Well done Ros on your attention to detail and special touches like prosecco and card for us.Thanks.x

Deborah and Andrew on their 2nd Anniversary which we thought was "Wood" hence we booked this beautiful wooden hut and what a wonderful mistake we made! Totally enchanted by everything........ Thank you once again for your kindness, thoughtfulness and for giving us the opportunity to stay in such a beautiful, tranquil and enchanting place. You have given us a treasured memory for our second "wood" anniversary and I can't wait to conjure up another reason to return.

What a beautiful spot, and what a treat to have such gorgeous weather when we arrived! Everything is so cosy & homely - down to the smallest detail. Thank you Ros for being so welcoming and for our yummy breakfast basket! Great way to begin our adventure..... I'm sure we will be back!

AJ & Tristan. July 2017. Wiltshire.

Thank you for a lovely stay in the Shepherd's Hut! This place is (somehow) even more beautiful in real life. Photos cannot do this hut or the surroundings justice. We had such a relaxing stay and made use of the fire pit, the BBQ Hut (amazing), and even gave the indoor fire a go for half an hour. We don't want to leave! Thanks for being so helpful and considerate.

Sam & Gary. July 2017. Liverpool.

Thank you for a wonderful stay in the Shepherd's Hut, it was our first little family holiday. Ros and Gary were both so welcoming and have thought of everything. We really loved the BBQ hut. I am sure we will be back. Thank you again.

Arron, Bonnie & Beatrice. June 2017, Gloucestershire.

A perfect romantic hideaway in a stunning position. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and the little extras inside the hut were very thoughtful. Waking up to gorgeous sunshine over the hills made for the most relaxing morning. Really hope to visit again one day.

Samantha & Michael. June 2017. Wirral.

Two perfectly chilled out days in a stunning setting. Thank you for making everything perfect, will be going home well relaxed and with great memories. PS Thanks for the birthday card!

Tim & Jo. May 2017. Somerset

Thanks for a lovely relaxing stay. You made us feel right at home. We didn't need to leave the huts as we could prepare food and eat it outside. The kites and the buzzards were amazing. Wish the holiday was longer at least going back fully recharged. Diolch o galon.

Jane & Damian. April 2017. Ynys Mon

Wow. What a wonderful surprise. It's our first 'glamping' experience and we feel totally spoiled. Everything is perfect and the attention to detail is amazing. We are looking forward to returning to experience the BBQ hobbit hut and the sunset. (again) Thank you
