Attractive detached property with own private hot tub, enjoying a beautiful rural location near the Brecon Beacons village of Govilon, just a short drive from the popular towns of Abergavenny and Crickhowell.

Book a stay at this handsome, three-bedroom barn conversion above the village of Govilon near Abergavenny. Sleeping six people and also welcoming up to three dogs, the generous stone property is set in 40 acres of its own grounds. Just 1 mile from the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, it also offers great access to the many footpaths of the Brecon Beacons National Park and is in an ideal location for anyone who enjoys climbing, canoeing, caving or ziplining. Return home from your days out to relax in the bubbling, private hot tub.

 

Wander into the barn to find yourselves in the inviting, open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with beautiful country views. Take a seat on one of the sofas, find a film on TV and light the wood burner if you choose. Take turns at whipping up delicious dinners in the kitchen, with its Aga, then dine together by the enormous picture window. Members of your party might also like to spread out into the second lounge, where there is a smart TV. Also downstairs is a wet room, while all the bedrooms are up on the first floor. The king-size includes a smart TV, a double and a twin. The family bathroom is also up here. Bask in the sun out on the decking on warm days. Light the BBQ or soak in the hot tub during the evening. There’s a handy utility space, with a washing machine and dryer, in the garage. The barn is accessed via a rather narrow lane, leading to parking for four cars by the house.

 

Enjoy being just 3.5 miles from Abergavenny, with its independent shops and market stalls selling a spectrum of delicious local produce. The town is also known for its excellent cafes and restaurants. Crickhowell, 5 miles away, is also a picturesque place to while away an afternoon or two.

The barn is fantastic and if you're looking for a base to go walking/exploring it is great. You can literally join walks from the front door and the setting is superb. Only one word of caution, the track (unmade road) from the end of Cwm Lane to the barn is about 100m long and in places is very narrow with stone walls and banks close on either sideRead more. If you have a large/wide vehicle or are a nervous driver you will find access difficult. They do warn about this so please take note. Hide
