Secluded converted henhouse set in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Country and mountain walks are right on your doorstep, with the Sugar Loaf and Skirrid providing an amazing backdrop. Three miles to the delightful, historic town of Abergavenny with an eclectic mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, with regular food festivals and markets to enjoy. Visit nearby galleries, museums and historic castles at Grosmont, White Castle and Raglan. Interesting days out at Blaenavon Iron Works and The Big Pit or perhaps try star gazing at the Brecon Beacons Visitor Centre. There are plenty of activities to enjoy including riding, golf, kayaking on the Usk and Wye or a visit to Hay-on-Wye, the town of books, which is within easy reach.

Entering into the property, the interior is a marvellous surprise with a light and airy feel, achieved with a contemporary finish following a conversion in 2017. Step into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, the double height ceiling adds to the spacious feel of this impressive room. There are two leather sofas alongside a large coffee table to play games or just watch the Smart TV. Beyond, there is a kitchen with electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher, the washing machine. This welcoming space also has the dining area with a marvellous table and benches and bi-fold doors leading to the outside world. All laid out across the ground floor there are two bedrooms, a master king-size with en-suite shower room with WC and a twin bedroom (which can be made up as a super-king-size on request) with an en-suite bathroom with WC. All in all, a fabulous and warming environment, with the benefit of underfloor heating, making this a super family or couples’ retreat at any time of year.

Outside there is a large private enclosed garden, with patio area with furniture and lawn beyond. There is ample private parking adjacent to the property.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

WALKING & CYCLING: On the eastern fringes of the Brecon Beacons National Park, you couldn’t be in much of a better place for an active break if that’s what you’re searching for. Climb Sugar Loaf Mountain, get to the summit of Skirrid, walk to Abergavenny or take a trip across the border and discover the glorious walks around the Wye Valley area.

CASTLES & CULTURE: An abundance of galleries, museums and festivals can be found close to the property so you’re never far from a smattering of culture. The historic castles of Grosmont, Raglan and White Castle are also within easy reach, so historians can explore to their hearts’ content in an area of the country rich with past time.

TOUR THE TOWNS: You’ll be staying just three short miles from the delightful town of Abergavenny, a destination not to be missed during your break.

We had a lovely break away at The Old Henhouse. Everything had been done by the owners to ensure we felt welcomed and safe in the current climate. The location is lovely and the garden was fabulous for the dog.

Ideal location for people who want peace and quiet, who have dogs maybe, very secure gardens. However, be prepared to drive on narrow lanes (mind you there's a lot of them). We found it fairly easy to navigate to from Hereford not from Abergavenny so I don't know what it's like approaching from motorways.

Beautiful setting with very quiet single track road. Friendly welcome from the owner and his children. Underfloor heating was amazing! Very comfortable furniture and although the shower room in the main bedroom was quite small it was ok for our short break.
