About this property

This beautifully restored barn is situated along a quiet country lane in rolling countryside a mile from the Welsh border village of Grosmont, described by the Welsh writer Jan Morris as The most beautiful village in Britain with its castle, friendly pub and quaint village store. The area is perfect for walkers and cyclists of all abilities, offering easy access to the Brecon Beacons for adventurous hiking and the Wye Valley for canoeing, cycling and more gentle walking. The barn is only eight miles from the foodie town of Abergavenny with its monthly farmers' market held on the last Thursday of the month, and the renowned Food Festival every September. The area boasts a wealth of excellent restaurants and country pubs, too numerous to mention. Heading towards the Brecon Beacons is the pretty town of Crickhowell, whilst on the England/Wales border about half hours drive away is the historic town of Monmouth. Take a drive up towards Llanthony Abbey through the Black Mountains and on to Hay on Wye with its eclectic range of book shops and the international Literary Festival every May. Hereford, home of Mappa Mundi and the Chained Library is 23 miles away. The Wye Valley is almost littered with Norman Castles Grosmont Castle is just a stroll away.
