Description

Stay in the Humble Hideaway shepherd’s hut at Humble by Nature. Turn off your phone, get away from the world and enjoy the great outdoors. Ideal for two, the Hideaway is only accessible by 4×4 or on foot as it’s hidden in a fenced-off wooded glade surrounded by fields.

The Plankbridge Shepherd’s Hut is the cosy bedroom and the beautifully restored GWR Lamp Hut – used originally for storing railway lamps – is the neatly designed kitchen and shower room. The Hideaway is completely off-grid with solar powered electricity and a composting toilet.

Kick back and relax in the hammock and discover the delicious taste of wood-fired cookery when you light the fire pit. Don’t worry if you’ve never tried it before – it comes with outdoor cookware and a cookery book to get you going! 

Don’t feel like cooking? Visit The Pig & Apple cafe on the farm. Open Wednesday to Sunday serving fresh coffee and delicious, locally sourced food.

Enter your start address:

Humble by Nature is based just outside of Monmouth in the Wye Valley. Easily accessible, situated close to the M4, M5 and M50.

From the North, Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye & M50

Take the A40 Southbound exiting at Monmouth, follow signposts to the B4293 directing you through two left turns towards Trellech/ Chepstow. After the series of bends the road straightens and at the top of the hill, with views on your right, take the first left hand turn, signposted towards Penallt. Continue for approximately 1 mile, taking the next available left - signposted 'The Craig/ No through rd'. Humble by Nature is the first entrance on the left.

From the east, Bristol & the M4

Exiting the M4 towards Chepstow and the Old Severn Crossing, follow signposts along the A466 to Chepstow Racecourse. At the Racecourse take the first exit at the roundabout signposted B4293 to Devauden. Continue along this road passing through Devauden, Llanishen and Trelleck. Almost 3 miles after Trellech, with magnificent views on your left, take a sharp right signposted Penallt. Continue for approximately 1 mile, taking the next available left - signposted 'The Craig/ No through rd'. Humble by Nature is the first entrance on the left.

If using a Sat Nav please do not take the turning marked 'Old Church Penallt'. The turning for 'The Craig' is 100m away on the same side of the road as you leave Penallt heading towards Monmouth.
