Set in the grounds of a 12th-century farmhouse, this pretty, converted barn is perfect for a family looking for a relaxing or active country holiday surrounded by nature and the picturesque views across Skirrid. Visit Linda Vista Gardens in Abergavenny (3.5 miles) for a lovely walk by the river or to enjoy a picnic.
This wonderful property is set on a working farm with three other converted barns and has its own entrance where you can leave your coats and boots after a day exploring the area. As you enter, you'll notice the rustic charm of this home has been sympathetically combined with light tones and splashes of colour in the comfortable, contemporary decor. The open-plan living area boasts an inviting seating area with two sofas to relax on and a TV. It's the perfect place for a small family to spend time together. Play games and enjoy memorable meals together at the dining table. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. After a busy day, you can rest in the double bedroom, while the children will be happy in the bunk bedroom. A bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC completes this charming home. Venture outside, and you can dine alfresco in fine weather on the shared patio area, which has picnic tables and a BBQ.
An ideal base for exploring, there's something for all the family, whether it's a day canoeing or kayaking on the River Wye at Monmouth (19 miles) or exploring some of the finest castles in Europe at Crickhowell (11 miles) and Raglan (11 miles). The traditional market towns of Abergavenny, Crickhowell and Monmouth are less than 12 miles away and foodies will love the many eateries showcasing menus featuring seasonal local produce. Annual events worth planning a visit to include the Abergavenny Food Festival, Hay Book Festival and Brecon Jazz Festival. For a quiet, lazy day out, you can watch the world go by on a canal boat on the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal (8.5 miles).
