This delightful cottage, a former boathouse, is a charming waterside retreat for a solo traveller or a couple looking for a romantic escape. Bright, pretty and beautifully decorated, it is surrounded by scenic countryside and has gorgeous views towards the Black Mountains.

Set all on one level, this lovely holiday destination feels cosy and welcoming, and is adorned with interesting art and attractive window treatments. The long lounge/diner is furnished with a sofa bed and a Smart TV - perfect for a quiet evening in - and a dining table for four. The dual-aspect galley kitchen is equipped with full cooking facilities for delicious meals and snacks, and a dishwasher to help you clean up. The king-size bedroom is a delight, with soft and pretty colours and views over the canal: a lovely sight to wake up to. There’s also a separate shower room. The cottage is surrounded by mature gardens and, as well as secure storage for bikes, they include a BBQ and outdoor furniture so you can dine alfresco in the sunshine or under the stars.

Located by the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, the house is set within the historic Llanover Estate, and by arrangement you can visit its stunning private garden, where you’ll find magnificent trees, rare shrubs, wildflowers and a stream with cascades and bridges. For cyclists, there are trails from the front door, and walkers can stroll the canal path or try more challenging climbs: the Skirrid, Sugar Loaf and Blorenge are all within 10 miles. For a range of excellent restaurants and some interesting shops, the vibrant market town of Abergavenny is just 5 miles away.

Loved this cottage! The setting is idyllic and so peaceful. It was well equipped and comfortable. It is a small cottage and it is nice that it was not stuffed with odd furniture, so that it felt spacious and airy. The walks along the canal were lovely and we visited The Retreat cafe several times for excellent food. It is quite a walk up the pub buRead moret well worth it for the views and the food. We only went out once in the car, we just enjoyed relaxing at the boathouse and walking local footpaths. Hide

We had a lovely stay at the cottage it was very cosy and our dog enjoyed the secure garden. The location is very peaceful and we enjoyed walking the canal also watching the barges passing by the cottage. Views and walks were perfect and we will definitely be making another trip.

A lovely cottage in a fantastic location. Very comfortable bed and very clean. Lots of lovely walks both from the cottage and a short drive away. The local pub, a mile or so up the hill is worth the walk, very friendly and welcoming.

Beautifully decorated and furnished. Situated in a prime location with many places of interest in the area. The dining area radiator was not working and in colder weather would have been a problem.

The cottage was in a lovely location right beside the canal and with a lovely garden and far reaching view. Overall the furnishings and furniture were good. Some of the kitchen equipment left a bit to be desired in terms of its age and quality.

A lovely, well presented cottage. Perfect location for walking and visiting Abergavenny, Usk area. Not easy to park at the property if you have a large car but is doable . Shopping at large Waitrose 10 minutes away. Cottage is as described by holiday cottages and we would be happy to book it again.
