A romantic, unique property to make you feel at one with nature but within easy reach of local amenities for when you need to connect with the outside world again
Originally a writer s cabin, this cosy shack feels off the beaten track, yet is really very easy to get back to the real world. Many items made by the owner from a native ash tree can be found within the structure of the property giving it a truly unique feel. From here, you can explore the private woodland, listen to the birds, relax in the hammock by the stream or enjoy stunning trails from the doorstep. Across the lane, walk the Sugar Loaf Mountain or stride out into the Brecon Beacons National Park (5 miles) or the Wye Valley, just over 20 miles away. There are exceptional road trails and mountain biking within the area and The Black Mountains are home to pony trekking centres. Walk to the local pub a mile away for supper. The foodie town of Abergavenny, known as the Gateway to Wales is 3.5 miles away where you could visit the Norman castle, browse some shops or make use of one of the many cafes and restaurants whether your choice is a Michelin starred meal or cosy café. The town of Crickhowell is within 7 miles and also good for stocking up on local fayre. Llanthony Prioy is 8 miles away and well worth a visit. The historical city of Hereford with Cathedral and Mappa Mundi and Hay on Wye, famous for the annual Hay Festival and numerous second hand bookshops, are both good for day trips. Inside, the property is a charming and cosy space with a sweet open plan living space, complete with cosy wood burner for snuggling up on chillier evenings as well as a selection of books and games to keep you entertained. There is also a small kitchen area for preparing simple meals. Through the curtain, you'll find the snug sleeping space with its double bed. A shower room with compost WC completes the accommodation. But it's the outside of the property that really makes this a beautiful place to stay. Surrounded by tranquil woodland and nestled at the foot of Sugar Loaf Mountain, this is the most blissful of retreats where you can relax on the decked area and enjoy a meal on the table and chairs, have an afternoon nap in the hammock and light the fire bowl on cool evenings as you watch stars appear in the night sky.
