    About this property

    A beautifully renovated barn, adjacent to the owners’ home in a countryside setting near Llanvetherine. Providing a delightfully light, airy and modern space, the cottage has fantastic views and patio doors that open wide, perfect to relax of an evening as the sun goes down or enjoy the early morning breeze whilst enjoying a lie in with a cup of tea. A perfect romantic retreat for couples looking for somewhere cosy to relax and being in fantastic countryside, award-winning restaurants and fabulous market towns. With ground floor accommodation, there is a lovely comfortable bedroom with large windows and views across the valley and an intimate bathroom with roll-top bath. There is a charming living area with great views, plenty of space for couples to relax in front of the woodburner and a well-equipped kitchen and dining area in front of the tall windows. Outside, you can sit on the patio with a cup of coffee, enjoy the far reaching views and plan your days exploring. You are ideally placed to enjoy fantastic walks from the door with Offa’s Dyke and a variety of footpaths criss-crossing the area. Abergavenny, a delightful market town, well known for its gastronomic delights on market day and popular food and cycling festivals, as well as being a gateway to the Brecon Beacons National Park. The National Park stretches away to the west opening up fabulous days walking and exploring or perhaps take a trip over the mountain to visit the Industrial Heritage Museum of the Big Pit and sample life underground in a coal mine. You are ideally situated to explore the fabulous Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and perhaps enjoy some shopping in the lovely riverside town of Monmouth, before heading up into the Royal Forest of Dean. A fabulous opportunity to experience diverse landscapes, from river gorges, impressive mountains, dense forest and the stunning countryside of the Welsh Marches, as well as outdoor activities such as golf, pony trekking or more adrenaline fuelled tree top adventures. A perfect romantic retreat, surrounded by picturesque undulating countryside. An idyllic base with a fabulous selection of restaurants nearby including Michelin Star quality, close to a popular market town ideal for couples looking to walk the fantastic local countryside or simply relax in each other’s company and enjoy the tranquillity and view.

    The small hamlet of Llanddewi Skirrid is most famous for The Walnut Tree restaurant offering a wonderful dining experience. It is overlooked by Skirrid Mountain which is a stand alone mountain, an outlier of the Black Mountains and the most easterly mountain within the Brecon Beacons National Park. There are excellent walks and lovely cycling routes right from the doorstep, and other famous restaurants including Fox Hunter, The Hardwick, 1861, The Bell Inn and The Crown at Whitebrook are within easy reach.

    "There was a lovely welcome pack waiting for us on arrival which was very nice. There was also lots of local information regarding places to visit eg. the 3 Castles which we did visit. Lots of eating places. We would recommend 1861 restaurant, excellent service and superb food. The Gurhka Corner restaurant in Abergavenny which was immaculate with excellent service and a great selection. The Copper Kettle Tea Rooms is also well worth a visit with very friendly staff and good food at reasonable prices."
