About Brondel Luxury Shepherd's Hut

Suitable For

One glamping unit only. Couples, families and dogs all welcome.


Guests are free to roam the 23-acre smallholding. A footpath through the fields offers a route north to a highly-recommended pub in Pisgah or south to the picturesque village of Llanfihangel Y Creuddyn – where there’s a pub and a 13th century church. For a more challenging walk, head to the summit of 741-metre Plynlimon (or Pumlumon Fawr) about 15 miles from site. The Wales Coast Path also offers fantastically scenic walking and you can join it at Abersytwyth. The Rheidol Riding Centre (01970 880863) is 3½ miles from site and Devil’s Bridge Falls (01970 890233) are 7 miles away. From there you can step aboard the Vale of Rheidol Railway (01970 625819) for a scenic journey to the seaside town of Aberstwyth. From site, Aberystwyth is a 15-minute drive (just over 7 miles). It has shops, eateries, a castle and is home to the National Library of Wales. For a wilder beach with dunes and plenty of space head just north of town to Ynyslas Beach. Mountain bikers will find fantastic riding at Bwlch Nant yr Arian (01970 890453) 9 miles away and the Hafod Estate (01974 282887) is about 10 miles from site.

Food & Drink

You can help yourself to freshly-laid eggs on site but, for everything else, head to Abersytwyth where you’ll find a wide range of shops including supermarkets. There is a farmers’ market in the town on the first and third Saturdays in the month. There are 2 pubs within walking distance of site (1½ miles) which serve food: the highly-recommended Halfway Inn (01970 880631) in Pisgah and The Farmer’s Arms (01974 261275) in Llanfihangel Y Creuddyn. For a special dinner, you might like to try the restaurant at Nanteos (01970 600522) – Rhys and Elen recommend the tasting menu. They also recommend Pysgoty (01970 624611), a small fish restaurant in Aberystwyth, where you’ll find plenty of other eateries too.

A little piece of paradise

This was our first (and won't be our last visit!) A tranquil haven that allows you to fully recharge. Views that are soooo good for the soul! See you soon 😊

Great accommodation in beautiful setting

The hut was fantastic, the kids loved it and there was everything we needed. A great base for exploring the area and a perfect host.

Peaceful Haven

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.

Getting There

From the small village of Llanfihangel y Creuddyn, take the narrow road to the right of The Farmer’s Arms pub. Follow this road over a little bridge and you will start to climb the hill. Once you start to climb, take the second left down a narrow lane signposted Tynfrondel/alltfedw. Follow this road until the road forks. Take a left and this will lead you to the shepherd’s hut.

The nearest mainline railway station is at Aberystwyth. There are infrequent buses to Llanfihangel y Creuddyn which is 1½ miles from Brondel Glamping but Elen and Rhys are able to offer a pick-up service from the village. Contact them directly to arrange this.
