A sublime stylish stay in the heart of the Black Mountains, complete with wood burning stoves, far reaching views and complete peace and quiet, yet just a mile away from a country pub.

In the glorious Black Mountains, just a pootle away from the market town of Abergavenny, life in the hills never felt so good. Snugly nestled on a quiet hillside, delight in far reaching views, endless woodland trails, miles of rugged mountain & a more than decent scattering of country pubs to quench the thirst. The perfect get away from it all escape awaits.

Marvel at the views as you park up the car, step inside to find an immaculate cottage kitchen, complete with country palette, farmhouse table showcasing more of the view, wood burning stove and every modern comfort considered.

Head through to find a fabulous family sitting room, a winning combination of style and comfort, with large sofa, armchairs dressed with woolly blankets, wood burning stove, plentiful holiday reads, alongside the obligatory TV and Wi-Fi. Upstairs are three pretty super king-size bedrooms, two of which can be converted in to twins, each with marshmallow duvets on decent mattresses and a fab family bathroom, spotless of course.

For older children it’s heaven, with woodland trails and rabbit spotting galore, for those preferring a quieter pace, simply sit back and drink in the views from the South facing terrace. Ramblers will delight in this hidden corner of the Welsh mountains, breathtaking trails across the Brecon Beacons and plenty of pony or pedal hire available locally too.

Whether its losing yourself for an afternoon in a fabulous market town, a stride from the door to the top of the Sugar Loaf Mountain, or simply lazing away the day by a mountain stream, we reckon you’ll be captivated by the beauty of this very special spot.

A beautiful cottage with everything you could possibly need and more. Beautiful views from the lovely garden which had lots of different places to sit. There are plenty of places to visit nearby and great walks . The dogs loved it too! The stone stairs are quite steep and turn a corner...which was sometimes a bit treacherous after some wine!

The cottage was cosy, quiet and comfortable. The perfect retreat for us and our dogs from the November firework onslaught in London. We loved exploring the walks and discovering castles and old churches , then returning to the peaceful private cottage.

The cottage is beautifully furnished, very comfortable, with gorgeous views. It feels like staying in the owner's home rather than a holiday let because it is so tasteful and no expense has been spared. The bedding is superb and the sofa, chairs, throws, curtains and lamps are all lovely. The crockery/saucepans are high quality. I slept in the bedrRead moreoom with the french doors onto the garden open all night because I loved the darkness, the pure air, sounds of birds and waking to a beautiful view. Hide

A lovely cottage in a stunning location. Peaceful and great walks from the door. Internet is surprisingly good for location, but don't expect to stream your favourite movies. The drive isn't that scary but the first section is steep, but it's concrete which helps a lot with grip.

This cottage is in the most beautiful location with a view that will take your breath away. There is plenty of space inside and out and it has everything you need for a great holiday. Unfortunately the level of cleanliness is poor. The cottage requires a deep clean in order to get it anywhere near covid safe. The decoration is tired with many crackRead mores, stains and blemishes. The stairs and the bathroom need work. The price needs to reflect this as it cannot be classed as luxury accommodation. Hide

Great quiet cottage with lovely views. Very steep hill to get up but worth the climb ! Wifi works but only in the front room which means you can sit outside in peace :) Abergavenny a short drive away with some nice pubs / restaurants etc. and a few short walks nearby.
