A wonderful large stone farmhouse to sleep up to 14 people in The Llantony Valley, in an idyllic location set beside a river; the location is a perfect spot to stay with very good mountain walking from the door - for keen walkers or just people wanting a stroll along the Llanthony Valley or to drive through The Gospel Path - this is a wonderful drive over to Hay-on-Wye. Enjoy Hatterell Ridge and Offa's Dyke Path, all in the Black Mountains and The Brecon Beacons National Park. The house is close to Llanthony Abbey, Capel-y-ffin with its history and association with Eric Gill the artist. Walks down to the river through the meadow and up the lane to the village of Cwmyoy with its medieval church with the leaning tower. Two good local pubs are just about within walking distance The Half Moon and The Queens Head. The dramatic and picturesque Gospel Pass leads through the hills to Hay-on-Wye a stunning drive. Pony Trekking within a few minutes drive at Court Farm next to Llantony Abbey and numerous Mountain Bike Trails among them The Black Mountain Classic Route over Grwyne Reservoir Route. FISHING (double bank for three quarters of a mile) for TROUT is available below the house, both to be discussed with the owner. This is a very spacious, luxurious and comfortable house in a superb location, beneath the village with the leaning church, and with stunning views - perfect for family parties, re-unions and get-togethers for a largish group of friends.
