Beautiful semi- detached mountain cottage

Walk for miles from the door, retreat back for cosy nights by the log burning stove, or barbeques under the immense night sky in the depths of the dramatic Brecon Beacons Dark Sky Reserve.

The Black Mountains stretch for miles around you, far reaching views of picturesque pine forests, a mountain river flowing gently past down below and a fabulous walk to the Grwyne Reservoir at the head of the valley, you can't fail to relax and unwind. Aptly named, the cottage is one of a pair of original foresters cottages deep in the Grwyne Valley, just off the famous Beacons Way, with walking and biking right from the door second to none.

In reach of market towns including Crickhowell, with butchers, independant stores and a useful mountaineering shop, Abergavenny, with regular markets, Michelin restaurants and one of the UK's best food festivals each September. A drive over the hill will find you in the pretty hamlet of Llanthony with ancient Priory and pony trekking. Or stride out from the door and take a peek at the historic hillside church of St Issui at Patrishow at the end of the valley, well worth the effort.

The accommodation offers TWO bedrooms: 2 king-size. Bathroom: with shower over bath and WC, on the ground floor. Lounge: with woodburner (a basket of logs included), TV, DVD, CD and radio. Kitchen/diner: well-equipped with Rayburn, electric oven and hob, microwave, coffee machine and washing machine.

A LOCAL PINT: The Crown at Pantygelli is a good local pub just 15 minutes away, or try The Dragons Head in Llangenny, further down the River Grwynne and a great spot to watch the salmon leaping upstream in the autumn.

SMART GRUB: Monmouthshire is the food capital of Wales, the Walnut Tree Inn, 25 minutes away, has won a Michelin star and is perfect for a special meal. More laid back, although equally great food can be found at The Hardwick, Foxhunter, Nant-y-Ffin or Crown at Whitebrook...lots of choice and links to be found in our Things to Do pages, booking recommended.

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

Christopher, 5th September 2019

Nice and quiet. No mobile signal. If you want to try making mobile call, turn on Wi-fi calling No pubs or shops in walking distance. And very narrow roads, so be prepared to do a lot of reversing.

Andrew, 16th August 2019

Great location if you like being away from it all with no mobile reception and lovely views. Walks in the forest straight from the door, our dog loved it. Not sure if it is normal but it was 5 degrees colder at cottage than in Abergavenny. It is quite a trek back to the main road to go anywhere but Abergavenny and Crickhowell both worth a visit. LoRead morevely comfy beds but the rest of the property would benefit from being updated. Hide

Hilary, 19th July 2019

We loved it so much. Very isolated which is what we had hoped for. A big contrast to our mad, London life. Beautiful views over the valley. Lots of unusual birds and lots of sheep. Rivers and brooks. Water supply comes straight off the mountain spring. The lovely stone cottage was perfect for us. We didnt want to leave.

Jon, 12th July 2019

Great cottage, very well equipped with comfy beds & views are amazing. Very secluded & quiet, nothing but birdsong & sheep. Quite a mission to get to food shop so ensure you have plentiful supplies! A real escape from normality! Loved it.

Sam, 5th July 2019

Great location perfect for relaxing

Zoe, 7th June 2019

The cottage is in a remote "get away from it all" location, set in beautiful countryside, with only the sound of the birds, the sheep and the stream in the valley below. It has a large family kitchen and fantastic views from the patio in front of the property. Dog friendly but need to be aware the approach from the road up to the cottage is throughRead more a field of sheep. Hide

Amy, 15th February 2019

Beautiful cosy cottage in a stunning location.

Stuart, 21st December 2018

The cottage is in a great location on the hillside looking down the valley with amazing views, especially at sunrise. A very peaceful place apart from the sound of the stream running below the cottage. The cottage itself is very warm and homely and has all the facilities/gadgets you need. The water pressure is low as it is fed by a natural spring sRead moreo the shower is not very powerful and the hot water gets very hot. A great weeks holiday at Christmas and we will be returning.

Jessica, 26th October 2018

A fantastic stay in the middle of lots of walking routes. Would definitely come back again.
