Inviting guests to escape their daily responsibilities, this superb farmhouse near Abergavenny is all about location, relaxation and exploration.
Enjoy life’s simple pleasures – good food, the great outdoors and the company of loved ones – with a stay at this working sheep farm just outside Abergavenny. Sleeping up to six guests, this three-bedroom property is perfectly placed for families or friends to explore the Black Mountains area, and stands in the shadow of the mighty Sugar Loaf Mountain. If you’re up for the challenge, climb to the summit for amazing panoramic views.
The cottage is full of character and skilfully blends modern home comforts with original features including exposed beams, stone fireplaces and an ancient arched oak doorway. The kitchen is a wonderful social space for bringing the family together when you’re not out and about exploring. Catch up with the news on the TV over breakfast or gather around the large dining table for a roast dinner with all the trimmings cooked in the Aga-style oven. During your downtime, put your feet up in the parlour room, get creative in the writing room or play games in the sitting room. The three bedrooms are up cottage-style stone stairs that are steep and uneven in places. The garden, enclosed by a fence, is great for the kids and dogs to play outside.
The property is only a mile from Abergavenny, famous for its annual food festival and array of restaurants and coffee shops. At nearby Sugar Loaf Vineyard, also a mile away, the wine buffs in your party can take a tour of the estate and sample the local vintage. Families can enjoy a hands-on experience with a difference at the Big Pit National Coal Museum (8 miles). Travel deep underground to find out what life was like as a coal miner there.
