Mandinam Shepherd’s Huts
There’s an old saying at Mandinam: "If you’re not bothered, then I don’t give a damn". No, Marcus, the owner, isn't that apathetic. His Mandinam motto simply means as long as his guests don’t have a worry, then neither does he – and so the fun begins, as you’re given free reign to do whatever you want within his 450 acres of indefectibly idyllic Welsh farmland, literally in the middle of nowhere. Either one of Mandinam's idyllic wooden huts offers privacy in droves, as well as a view destined to hurt your eyes if you stare at it too much: gaping-wide, green rolling hills – hills for days on end. Once you snap out of your scenic trance, and step inside your chosen abode, prepare to coo like a giddy child at how dainty and cosy it is. Every inch of both huts are beautifully furnished and equipped, from the mini kitchenette with butler sink to the traditional wood-burning stove, and even come with fresh lavender to aid a peaceful night’s slumber. The only things you’ll need to concern yourself with is when to light the barbecue and what time to climb into the hot tub, which sits adjacent to the gypsy caravan. Welsh legend has it that ‘Mandinam’ means ‘a place without blemish’ or ‘untouched holy place’, and after one night’s stay here, you begin to see why. We're certain you'll be booking your next stay at this isolated rural retreat before you even start packing up to go home.
Both huts are £70 per night; self-catering. Minimum stay is three nights. Mon–Fri or Fri–Mon.
April–end of October.
AccommodationThere are now four huts – the shepherds hut, gypsy van, cabin, and bluebell wagon, each with its own hot tub.
