Just like a blend of fine wines, Hutty is a creative blend of sturdy shepherds hut and robust railway carriage.
The result – a splendid eco friendly, bespoke cabin for two, complete with a super sized bed, cosy wood burning stove and generous French windows flooding the interior with natural light and offering far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.
Hutty stands in a privileged location on a private nature reserve with a river running through it within the glorious Pembrokeshire Coast National Park surrounded by ancient Priskilly Forest and bluebell woodland shared only by wildlife. Wake up each morning to the dawn chorus and drift off to sleep each night to the mellow hooting of owls as you gaze at unpolluted star studded night skies through bedside windows.
A converted barn tucked away out of site offers an additional space in which to relax where comfy sofas, a bar, dart board, guitar, fridges and an honesty shop are thoughtfully provided.
Pembrokeshire is a wonderful county to explore from its celebrated coast path around the rugged, sea sculpted edge to the wild and unspoiled Preseli Hills inland and the mighty Cleddau River through the middle. There are beaches aplenty, secret coves and tiny harbours all easily accessed using the dedicated local coastal bus services. The Poppit Rocket runs between Cardigan, Newport and Fishguard, the Strumble Shuttle runs between Fishguard and St Davids and St Davids and Marloes are served by the Puffin Shuttle.
Boat trips to the internationally important offshore islands open up a whole new fascinating world of magnificent coastal scenery, barely touched by humans. Myriad breeding seabirds, seals, dolphins and more can be seen at close quarters. Cruise around Ramsey or spend a day on Skomer.
Priskilli Forest Country House serves meals in its formal dining room and Y Cabin Bar. Something’s Cooking in the nearby village of Letterston is an award winning fish and chip shop and restaurant. In Wolfscastle just a little further on visitors can enjoy fine dining at the Wolfscastle Country Hotel or good pub food in the welcoming Wolfe Inn.
The harbour town of Fishguard and Britain’s tiniest characterful city of St Davids are well worth visiting. If you are intrigued by ancient history do visit Pentre Ifan burial chamber just south of the hamlet with the same name and explore the vibrant reconstructed iron age settlement of Castell Henllys where replica roundhouses have been built on existing iron age foundations. The Last Invasion Tapestry hanging in Fishguard Town Hall is a revelation. Did you know Britain was saved from a French invasion in 1797 by a group of plucky Welsh women? There are story filled castles too at Cilgerran, Haverfordwest, Pembroke, Carew and Manorbier. The County Museum at Scolton Manor and Country Park is well worth a visit.
Watersports and adventure activities abound. Whether you want to learn something new or brush up on your skills there is plenty to choose from. Try horse riding on the beach, coasteering, sea kayaking, surfing, sailing, mountain biking, diving, quad biking and more.
Those of a gentler disposition may enjoy browsing the many art galleries, shopping in small independent boutiques, discovering working woollen mills, indulgent relaxing spas and glorious coastal or countryside walks.
Fancy glamping Wales? Hutty certainly is a little gem and a great base from which to explore the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
