A delightful ground floor wing of a detached cottage, looking out to the Sugar Loaf Mountain in the magnificent Brecon Beacons and situated close to Abergavenny, renowned as Wales’ culinary centre.
Spend date nights in the hot tub admiring spectacular views of the Sugar Loaf mountain and gazing up at the stars. Sitting in a Dark Skies Area in the pretty village of Gilwern on the edge of the Blaenavon World Heritage site, this welcoming bolthole is perfectly positioned for a romantic retreat. Bring two dogs along and enjoy days exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park before relaxing in style. Step through the stable door and into the kitchen which has all the space you need to prepare feasts. It has a handy dishwasher so you can clear up with ease after dining alfresco or eating inside. After dinner, relax in the light, inviting lounge which is filled with natural light from the French doors and warmed by the wood burner-effect electric fire. The TV/DVD will keep you entertained, as will the hot tub which sits on the enclosed, covered veranda. Beyond the veranda, there are gorgeous gardens that wind down to the canal. Drift off in the super king-size bed which can be made up as 3ft twin beds on request, before freshening up in the shower room. There is off-road parking and secure bike storage available, and an exercise paddock of over an acre for dogs and visitors alike. Explore the grounds and look out for the many hidden seating areas. A 5-mile trip takes you into the heart of Abergavenny – a great foodie town known as ‘The Gateway to Wales’. Pick up goodies, dine in style or ascend one of the seven hills of Abergavenny: Blorenge, Sugar Loaf, Great Skirrid, Little Skirrid, Deri, Rholben or Mynydd Llanwenarth. Blaenavon Iron Works and The Big Pit are within 7.5 miles of your door and are great destinations for a day out learning about the local heritage. For water sports visit Llangorse or Llandegvedd Lake. For an adventure, the tallest mountain in the Black Mountains sits 16.5 miles away; summit Waun Fach for panoramic views to remember.
