Tucked away half a mile up a small country lane, Hafod is one of two attractive properties converted from farm buildings and sat high up on the side of the Sugar Loaf Mountain. Their position on this small hill farm is utterly beautiful with stunning views of the Black Mountains, the beautiful Bettws Valley and the Sugar Loaf. This is a great spot for bird watching, walking and pony trekking. The nearby town of Abergavenny is just 10 minutes away and the area is littered with fantastic restaurants. Hafod cottage provides a homely and comfortable base - ideal for a couples holiday, or a family. Well behaved dogs are most welcome and the farmyard buildings offer 3 stables within sight of the cottages as well as grazing, should you wish to bring your horse.

    Hafod Cottage

    Hafod Cottage sleeps 3 people in one double bedroom with an additional single bed. The cottage has a kitchen and a living/dining room on the ground floor with the family bedroom and a shower room on the first floor. There is an enclosed garden with exceptional views and the whole property brims with character features.

    Breathtaking position

    At 1000ft above sea level, these two small cottages share truly magnificent panoramic views out across the beautiful surrounding countryside. Buzzards soar at eye level here and if you are lucky you may see the occasional Red Kite. The cottages each enjoy enclosed gardens with furniture - a lovely spot to watch the sun go down.

    Flexible accommodation for up to 5 people

    Hafod and Cuddfan Cottages offer the ideal solution for two couples looking to holiday together but maintain some privacy. Meet up for walking and meals out whilst enjoying time together in your own little cottage. Cuddfan Cottage can accommodate a further 2 people in 1 twin bedroom and is available to book through us.

    Wonderful walking

    Bring your wellies or walking boots, a map, and the dog and head out on to the stunning Sugar Loaf Mountain. There are numerous circular walks from the cottages and you can choose the level of difficulty. The summit of the Sugar Loaf is well worth the effort with views on a clear day extending to the Black Mountains in the North, the Cotswolds to the East, the Brecon Beacons to the West, and the Bristol Channel to the South. The cottages are also an excellent base from which to explore the rest of the Black Mountains, or hop in the car for 20 minutes and take on the iconic Brecon Beacons. Those with horses can enjoy miles of uninterrupted rides straight from the farm - what a wonderful way to explore the area.
