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.
