If you’re hoping to get away from it all, Anne’s Hut plunges you into total seclusion amongst the greenery and the tranquillity of the Wye Valley not far from Chepstow in South Wales.
Equipped and furnished to a high standard, these shepherd’s huts make ingenious use of space while including everything you need to enjoy your stay.
One of the huts is the main living area, with cosy wood burning stove and modern amenities, while the other is the luxury bathroom. The huts are linked by a decking patio area.
Below the huts is the fire pit, where you can try your hand at cooking outdoors or lounge in the comfy chairs and hammock.
It is the ideal spot for relaxing after a day’s exploration, listening to the birdsong of the evening chorus all around you.
Accommodation across one level.
The main hut is 2.2m wide and 6m long and is dominated at the far end by the super king bed. At the other end is a well-appointed kitchen along with a cosy dining table and chairs and small but effective wood burning stove.
Across a decking patio is the bathing and dressing hut. This is a whole shepherd’s hut designed simply for bathing. You’ll find a double ended bath with a window at bath height, a full sized separate rain shower and a proper flushing toilet. The hut is plumbed in with warm running water. Both huts are also centrally heated, so remain warm all year round.
Decking patio with sheltered dining area. Fire pit with chairs, hammock and occasional seating.
Sorry, no children or pets.
Minimum two night stay.
*Guests are unable to park right next to Anne’s Hut but parking is available at the top of the track to the meadow.
Beautiful setting. Beautiful hut. Hosts are friendly and want to ensure everything is perfect. Despite pretty awful weather and lots of rain it didn't really matter and the stay was perfect. Peaceful and listening to the wind, rain and animals were so relaxing and just what we needed. Can't wait to book again. A walk to Gaer Hill is recommended as is eating at the pub in St Arvans.

The warmest welcome, a generous hamper, the most wonderful dogs, a cosy and comfy bed, beautiful location, hot baths with a wild view, clean and spacious... the list is endless! We were blessed with warm and sunny weather and can’t wait to go back when it’s a bit colder to really indulge in the corner fire after a walk down to Tintern. A few days here felt like a week away - come here if you want to escape and relax. I can’t recommend Anne’s Retreat enough!

The attractive historic town of Chepstow is four miles away, boasting one of the oldest stone built castles in Britain. While you’re visiting Chepstow, don’t miss Chepstow Racecourse – the venue hosts everything from food festivals to concerts.
The ancient settlement of Penterry sits high on the hill between Chepstow and Tintern. From a spot just above Anne’s Hut which once housed a Roman Fort you have a perfect 360 degree view featuring seven counties.
Designated as an AONB, the local area is beautiful and steeped in history. Chepstow boasts the oldest stone built castle in the land and Tintern with its majestic Abbey and stunning setting is a must to see.
For gastronomes, there is a Michelin restaurant just 20 minutes away and there are many excellent eateries close by. If castles are your thing then there are five within 20 minutes and Llanthony Priory which is outstandingly beautiful is just 40 minutes away.
