A stylish studio-style property set within the spacious grounds of the owner’s home, a great base for exploring the traditional towns and villages of the Brecon Beacons National Park, whatever time of the year.

Wander down to the canal from this superb sanctuary at Govilon, near Abergavenny. Ideal for a couple, this delightful studio abode is perfectly designed and beautifully finished to offer everything you might need during your break in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Set within the owners’ spacious grounds, yet still offering its privacy, it opens on to a private courtyard with BBQ and ample space for outside relaxation. Relax in the large private hot tub which is located across the courtyard. Wander into the bright studio to find its creative design ensures everything is both comfortable and convenient. Settle on the sofa to watch a film on the Smart TV or to chat about your plans for the following day. Prepare romantic meals for two in the modern kitchen area then dine together at the table or out in the tranquil courtyard. Settle for the night in the comfortable double bed and wash the day away in the modern shower room, with WC. Make coffee in the morning to enjoy out in the fresh air; sizzle supper on the BBQ in the evening and enjoy a glass of chilled wine as you unwind in the hot tub. There is allocated parking available. Explore the enchanting Usk Valley and the Black Mountains from the doorstep of this romantic bolthole. Amble down to the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal then follow the towpath along beside the water for as far as you would like. The village of Gilwern is a short stroll along the canal with its 3 pubs, Post Office, garage, local shops including a butcher's and a chemist, and fish and chip shop.  Crickhowell is 5 miles away, with it's pretty local shop dominated high street or climb up to Crug Hywel, a former Iron Age hillfort. The foodie town of Abergavenny, known as the Gateway to Wales is 4 miles away and is a great market town for wandering around colourful shops, interesting galleries and market produce stalls and for a broad choice of eateries from dog friendly cafes to Michelin Guide restaurants. There are castle ruins to see here as well.  The local train station offers easy access to Cardiff and Hereford  if you wish to venture further afield. Or visit Waterfall country, which has been designated as a Special Area of Conservation and a site of Special Scientific Interest. You will find that you are away from it all yet with easy access to many local places of interest.

Our car broke down on the way to our accommodation and the owners could not have been more welcoming and helpful in helping us throughout the weekend with no car. The accommodation was immaculate and the hot tub helped us relax.

Great high quality accommodation (just for two) in the grounds of the owners house, private and secluded and very quiet - a really great base to explore locally and the Brecon Beacons NP at large. Jacuzzi is a very welcome treat for aching legs after a good days walking or to get going in the morning. Local recommended trips, apart from hillwalkingRead more are a visit to the Blaenavon Big Pit (great underground tour) and a wild swim in keepers pond only a few miles away. Hide
