On a budget? Then choose ‘bed only’. This is a unique opportunity to overnight in a pretty and cosy, traditional shepherd’s hut that sleeps 2 people. No bedding or breakfast is provided. Horse B&B also available.

Shepherd’s Huts were introduced in the 19th Century when shepherds would travel with their flock of sheep, away from habitation.  The idea was borne out of the necessity for the shepherd to have somewhere to sleep, eat and store his equipment and equally important, that ‘somewhere’ had to be mobile, in order to go with him.  The Shepherd’s Hut was his home away from home, with an open-plan combined living area.

The Bolt Hole may not suit everyone, but for those who enjoy experiencing something ‘a little different’, be it a romantic break or just getting back to nature, we believe that this really is an opportunity not to be missed!

The Shepherd’s Hut stands alone on the edge of the caravan site and has outside seating and a BBQ area.  Horse B&B is also available and dogs are welcome by arrangement.  Prefer a different location?  Look at other hut ‘Y Cwtch’.

The internal dimensions of the hut are 11’ x 6’4”, so not the largest of areas, but we believe that we have made the best use of the space, creating a cosy and relaxed atmosphere.  There is a double bed that folds out at night and acts as a seating area at other times, a foldaway table and two chairs.  Hooks on the wall are provided for hanging garments.

A log burning stove in the corner of the hut can provide heat, if required.

We must insist on absolutely no smoking and no naked flames in the hut, due to the nature of its construction.

A standpipe is provided outside, for fresh, cold water.  Basic electricity is installed in the hut to run lighting, boil a kettle and charge your phone. There are no other services inside, but there is use of bathroom facilities on our friendly farmyard and a ‘WC’ on the caravan site.  We also offer the use of a communal kitchen with kettle, hob, microwave and sink which is suitable for making basic meals, hot drinks and washing up. Please note that you will need to supply your own crockery and cutlery.

As you can see from the map, we are only a few minutes drive from the gorgeous beaches of Rhossili: Rhossili Bay, Fall Bay and Mewslade whilst Oxwich Bay and Port Eynon Bay are about 10-15 minutes away.

Please note that guests must supply their own bedding and towels or arrange in advance to hire them at an additional cost.
