Welcome to Raven's Retreat

Do you miss your dog when you’re on holiday – then bring him along.

You’ll have - a run and kennel to leave him in and a pet sitting service - accommodation for you in a quirky Shepherds Hut – a wood to walk through off lead – peace and quiet – all in a little bit of paradise in Mid Wales.

Great too for that romantic break you've been promising yourself.


"Sue and Roger have created such a beautiful little retreat for their guests, their hard work on it has truly paid off; it was delightful and just as is advertised if not better. They greeted us kindly and warmly and also respected our privacy. Coming from busy jobs in London it was a recipe for calm and happiness. The outside toilet is of no bother; it actually makes you feel more at one with nature. The compost toilet; you wouldn't even notice were any different. Everything was clean and refreshments were even provided! We were so chuffed with our stay that as well as 100% recommending it to others, we will also make many efforts to return if anywhere at all near them. Thumbs up :)"

"Well what can we say?! Roger and Sue were delightful hosts and couldn't have been more attentive. The breakfast hamper and bottle of wine were a lovely touch and so was the BBQ on our return from a day out. The hut is beautiful as are the surroundings. Everything we wanted...peace, quiet, relaxation. Can't wait to go back!"

"By far the best place we've ever stayed at through Airbnb! Sue and Roger are the perfect hosts and they couldn't do enough for us during our visit, but without being invasive of our space. The hut is in an amazing location- 10 minutes’ drive from the nearest town, with plenty of things to do on the doorstep. The hut itself was perfect for us, and was so cosy inside with everything we needed. The BBQ outside and log burner inside were added bonuses. We're already planning our next trip! Thanks again Sue and Roger, you gave us the perfect weekend away!"

"Roger and Sue were very welcoming and accommodating hosts. The cabin is lovely. Beautifully located and ever so peaceful. Everything we wanted and more from our night away. Will certainly be back. Thank you!"

"INCREDIBLE! We travelled from Hampshire which was a five hour drive with traffic, for just one night for Michael's birthday. We wanted somewhere beautiful and remote to enjoy a child free romantic weekend with our little pooch Rosa in tow. From my initial enquiry I knew I had found the perfect place. The owner was so accommodating and offered to provide balloons and a cake to make it special. The drive was wonderful with stunning views that became even more outstanding the closer we got to our destination.
On arrival we had the warmest and most friendly welcome of anywhere I have ever stayed and were taken to the little shepherds hut which was to be our home for the next 24 hours. It was beautiful!! The location in the woods was so tranquil and the hut built by the owners blew us away. It was gorgeous and the photographs do not do it justice at all. Alongside the hut ran a river that just added to the experience, listening to the water at night. Inside everything had been thought of. All the little extras were an absolute delight and we spent the whole time finding little things to be amazed by. The log fire was so cosy. The things provided for dogs such as dog bed, towel and lovely little kennel outside were great.
We literally couldn't find a single fault. The breakfast hamper was delightful and the hosts were more than happy to cater for vegetarians. The decking outside provided a great spot to sit next to the water and enjoy a glass of wine. I could gush about this place all day. It was perfection!
We will definitely be returning."
