A delightfully converted barn on a working farm with a country pub and the Brecon and Monmouth Canal very close at hand, and Goytre Wharf making for a great morning stroll.

Just a short drive from the Severn Bridge, with easy access to Cardiff, Monmouth, Usk and Abergavenny, perfect for shows and food festivals throughout the year. The market town of Crickhowell is also just 25 minutes away, crowned the winner of the UK's best high street 2018. A short 45 minute drive will lead you to the majestic Pen y Fan. A beautiful mountain with breath-taking views. In the Welsh borderlands you will find Tintern Abbey, Chepstow Castle and The Roman Fortress in Caerleon, all within easy reach. Big Pit is also well worth a trip with children, a chance to head underground in a real mine.

This welcoming room has comfortable sofas framing the warming wood burner with a basket of logs ready for your arrival, there is also a TV/DVD and a bookcase with plenty of books and board games to keep everyone entertained.

A lovely, quaint rural cottage set within a working farm. Very friendly and welcoming family. Great location within striking distance of the Brecon Beacons, Wye Valley and Cardiff.

A very peaceful location with very accommodating hosts. Ideal for walkers. The narrow arch entry to the parking spaces was a little worrying on first arrival but we mastered it in the end!! Cottage is a little dark inside due to lack of windows but otherwise extremely well equipped and comfortable.

We spent a week in May. We enjoyed so much the stay there. Its a very cozy cottage fully equipped and so clean. We asked if we could have a high chair and a baby cot and there were both prepared on our arrival. We were impressed by the fact that the heater setting next to the cot was always off and they even prepared a changing mat . We love all thRead moreose details, attention of the landlady. It was also so quiet that we could rest a lot and even our son solely until 8 every day there. Thank you. Hide

The picture on booking shows the house with green fields in front. In fact the front of the house is a cobbler driveway. Its slightly misleading and had I realised there was no green space to look onto I wouldnt have booked it. Coming from london I was desperate for a green view. Because of lack of outdoor space its not ideal with children. Its finRead moree if you want to sleep There and go out all day. Also, parking is through a very tight archway.

The cottage was lovely, with a spacious kitchen. Having two bathrooms was really good for us, having to adult daughters. We were there the week commencing 7th August when the weather was great, so spent a lot of time sitting outside enjoying the quiet of the countryside.The owners were very friendly and helpful.
