Your walking weekend just got cosy!

The Charcoal Hut, Myddfai

Kick off your walking boots and relax. It’s all about you now.

Park the car. Take to the hills…

When you’ve enjoyed a day walking, perhaps to Pen y Fan or Lyn y Fan Fach, returning to the hut will be just what you needed.

You’ll find The Hut and kitchen deck hidden away down a little path. You will hear the stream that runs behind it before you see it. And you’ll discover that the space really is all about you. It’s not shared with anyone else or overlooked.

During your stay, you can cook on our homemade charcoal then soak in the hot tub under the stars. We’ve made the space super cosy and you’ll be able to wrap yourselves in blankets and watch the stars, or enjoy a game of Scrabble whilst you listen to the record player.

You can park the car & walk from here. Designed with walkers in mind.

All our guests tell us they have never slept so well! All the fresh air, the walking, the wild swimming and of course the hot tub and then a proper cosy kingsize bed. Walking in the Brecon Beacons and surrounding villages makes for a wonderful long weekend escape, and a chance to top up your tank. We designed our space to help you get the most out of your time here, in nature, with a few thoughtful touches to make it extra special.

Kitchen & Shower Deck

Our kitchen deck is equipped with everything you need to prepare your meals, including a fantastic barbecue, stocked with charcoal made right here in our woodland.

Coffee & Tea included

We’ve got a hot drinks station, including 4 types of  Mokarabia coffee, a selection of TePigsTeas & even hot chocolate for you to enjoy. All included in your stay.



It’s not like other places! It doesn’t feel like the wood and the rest of the natural world are there for the Hut’s benefit. Somehow it’s the other way round. You feel like you’re being invited to be a part of the natural world…making a place that’s good for creature comforts and creatures too, and it’s a heavenly place to be. We stayed for a week at the beginning of October and loved every moment. Highly recommended.

hot tub t the charcol hut

Hot tub under the stars

After a day out exploring, you’ll be glad you’ve got the hot tub to come back to. We are in a dark sky zone, so on a clear night, you can watch the stars in the hot tub. Many guests have seen meteors, shooting stars and, of course the bats, as they enjoy a soak,

Guest Reviews

John and Dinah have created something very special. We loved everything about our stay from the hot chocolate to the star gazing. We will be back.

Paul and Jason

We had an amazing stay. Dinah and John have put together a really impressive hut, the bed is super comfortable, the shower is delightful and the outdoor kitchen meant that even my partner was happy to do the dishes! Dinah has thought of everything, the little details really made the stay!


Wow! From the minute we arrived, we felt ourselves relaxing. Every little detail has been considered by John and Dinah. From the little welcome pack to the care taken to make sure our dietary needs were met, nothing was too much trouble. Jane and Henry

We had the most wonderful, relaxing and romantic stay at The Charcoal Hut. Dinah and John were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome with lots of little treats. The weather was too hot to use the hot tub in the day but we enjoyed sitting in it in the evening and stargazing. We loved the kitchen deck and just being outdoors in nature for the weekend!
