Nestled away in the owners’ garden in the heart of the village of Gilwern, this delightful former BBQ lodge is the perfect bolthole for two. Stroll into Gilwern to browse its small general store, chemist and Post Office, dine at one of its three popular pubs or pick up a delicious supper at the fish and chip shop to enjoy back at the hut. From the village, enjoy a leisurely stroll along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal path, which meanders for 35 miles through the picturesque Welsh countryside, home to an array of flora and fauna. For more amenities, visit the market towns of Crickhowell (3 miles) and Abergavenny (6 miles), with their weekly farmers’ markets and independent shops and eateries.
Inside, this delightful hut has been expertly designed to make use of every inch. The compact yet well-equipped kitchen area is ideal for rustling up tasty breakfasts and snacks, with a fridge, kettle, microwave and toaster. At the end of a long day on foot, relax and unwind on the inviting sofa in the living area nearby and settle in for an evening of games, reading or watching your favourite programmes on the Sky TV. The separate bathroom has a surprisingly generous bath with shower attachment, perfect for enjoying a long soak after a strenuous stroll. When it’s time for bed, climb the steep ladder staircase up to the mezzanine-style bed, where you will find a double mattress and mood lighting. With a Velux window looking out to the trees, this is a serene space in which to enjoy a long lazy morning.
Outside, there is a sunny patio area complete with picnic bench and BBQ, ideal for those summer evenings. There is parking for one car.
