Brondel Shepherd's Hut
Relaxation and perfect location!
Brondel shepherds hut was just perfect! 2 adults, 2 Children (5 and 7 years) and a mad cocker spaniel comfortably housed in the hut which was well maintained and equipped for a 4 night stay. Beds comfy, shower really good, and kitchen knocked up all our meals just fine. Elen a brilliant host and so welcoming with help on hand if we needed it. At night, with the kids asleep and the fire lit outside, the views and peacefulness of the location was just what we needed. Highly recommend as a break from it all or as a base for exploring, Aberystwyth only 20 mins away and the surrounding areas (Elon valley) just breathtaking. Oh, and Y Farmers pub was amazing!

Lovely Shepard’s Hut!
The Hut itself was just perfect, it had everything we needed. The bed was super comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped and everything was clean. The deco was beautiful and everything was well thought out. The log burner was a big bonus, and we loved sitting in front of it at night with a glass of wine watching the breathtaking views. We had the most relaxing holiday and we can’t wait to go back! And a big thank you to the host that made us feel very welcome and also made sure we had everything we needed. She left a lovely welcoming basket upon our arrival. Very much appreciated!

Brondel Shepherd's Hut
The Shepherds hut is in a perfect, quiet location well off the beaten track. Beautifully kitted out and perfect for us as a family of four. With plenty of garden space for our little dog to run around, and space to sit outside and enjoy the view. The host was so friendly and welcoming. We had a very relaxing and peaceful few days. We went in November and the hut was really cosy and warm with en electric fire and a wood burner. Lovely hot shower. All perfect. Thank you

What an absolutely perfect few days ! Couldn't of wished for better!. We have relaxed and totally recharged the batteries. My mental health had been at a very low point with being a carer ,the pandemic etc. So thankyou so much I'm so glad we found you. The shepherd's hut is so cosy! Warm and has everything we needed. Loved watching them get the sheep with the dogs .took me to a memory from childhood . Everything is perfect!!! We are going to book again ! Paul was reluctant when I booked and didn't think he'd like it .....but he said its the best few days he's every had ! See you again and thankyou . Paul Sara and Gracie xx

Spacious Shepherd's Hut with spectacular views. Elen is a fantastic hostess and the The Farmers pub in the village has great food and a lovely garden. We had a wonderful time. Thank you.

Thanks so much to Ellen for making us feel so welcome and relaxed - even going to the trouble to setting up the bbq in the Welsh drizzle for us! Remote (Aberystwyth for food shop is at least 20mins away), but we totally loved that. No tv helped us to unwind and enjoyed the nights with the fire pit alight and listening to the sheep and birds. Everything we needed inside the hut including huge comfy bed, hot powerful shower. Beautiful touches and finishes inside too, such as locally picked flowers and eggs from the nearby farm. Wish we had booked for longer!

It is a beautiful part of Wales, lovely flowers, wildlife and people. The hut is very comfortable and has a wood burner (good for cold weather), an effective electric heater and an amazingly comfortable double bed (Orthapaedic Valencia 2000). Elen was very welcoming and helpful and made our stay a memorable one. The local pub yFarmers which has recently been redesigned does good food and has a good Covid practice for dining and drinking (lovely Hapus) outside. We found beaches that weren't busy (Ynyslas, Aberdyfi). We had a great time away from it all. Thank you Elen.

Spent the May Bank holiday weekend at Brondel Shepherds Hut, with my Husband, 2 sons & 2 dogs. The hut has everything you can possibly need & more. The views are amazing & there is a local pub for drinks within walking distance. We didnt get to eat as a very popular (recomend to book in advavce) . Visited Aberystwyth Town & Aberdovey Beach. Weather was perfect. We will definitely go back & visit. Host Elen & husband were very accommodating. Thanks for our fantastic break & memories. X

Brondel Shepherd's Hut
We had the most wonderful stay here. It really is a special place, deep in nature, a true retreat from city life. The drive through Wales from London was spectacular and when we reached Brondel we couldn't have been happier. The shepherds hut itself combines modern luxury with a cozy feel. The most comfortable bed I've ever experienced when glamping, and actually ever. Cozy blankets, cushions, a cute little sofa to cuddle on, a practical well equipped mini kitchen and a beautiful shower room with a hot, powerful shower. It was just the two of us and our dog, Minnie, so we didn't use the bunks but they looked well made and cozy. Elen is super welcoming and warm hearted, leaving us wanting for nothing. She has obviously put a lot of thought and care into creating this place. It feels bespoke, special and welcoming. The view, ah the view! Sunrise to the left, sunset to the right and a panoramic unspoiled view of the Cambrian Mountains. So special. The surrounding countryside and seaside towns are a treat and head to Ynyslas for the beach of dreams. Thanks Elen for a wonderful stay, we will surely be back. Diolch yn fawr

Normally the dog and I are away camping every few weeks from April to September, but 2020 meant that didn't happen and when campsites were once again allowed to open there wasn't a suitable campsite with vacancies to be found. I decided we deserved a little luxury, switched the search to glamping and soon found this fabulous Hut. I found a few others but kept coming back to this one, booked it for October and crossed fingers and toes that it wouldn't need to be moved (the coronavirus booking guarantee was a great stress reliever). A text from Elen on the morning of arrival made it feel like the holiday had really begun even though I was only a few miles down the M62. We arrived late afternoon to discover that Elen had been across and switch the heater on so the Hut was warm, cosy and welcoming. The facilities are fantastic, everything you need in a space that is deceptively spacious. We never did light the log burner, the wall heater was on for a couple of hours a day and that kept the Hut toasty and warm. The views were great and we even got a couple of really good sunsets! It was lovely to lie in bed listening to the owls out hunting and the dawn chorus was a great way start to each day. Devils bridge is well worth a visit especially if it has rained a lot in the days before your visit - take waterproofs if you want to stand on the viewing platform immediately by the falls but don't fancy getting wet! Ynyslas Beach is a lovely walk, we parked at Borth and walked up the beach and then back down the inland path on the opposite side of the golf course. The Hafod Estate is great for a full days walking, the paths are clearly signed and there are some spectacular views. I have been recommending Brondel to all my friends and family, although part of me thinks I should be discouraging others from visiting, if everyone else is going it will mean there might not be any vacancies when I want to visit again. Thank you Elen & Rhys we look forward to visiting again.
