Entering this glorious ancient farmhouse is stepping back in time; the main house was built in the 1480's and during the renovations the owners have carefully managed to keep many of the unique original features.  The farmhouse is set a mile from Abergavenny, on the fertile farmland on the foothills of Sugar Loaf Mountain in The Black Mountains. Wonderful views up to the Sugar Loaf Mountain and classic walks straight from the door. Staying here you are not too far from the excellent Gastro pubs and restaurants, with well-known restaurants like the Hardwick and Walnut tree just a short drive away. Staying close to Abergavenny makes it a perfect for events such as the Abergavenny Food Festival, Cycling, Walking events and being able to reach The Welsh Valley, World Heritage Site and Welsh Marches.


Sleeps 6 - 3 bedrooms

Entering the spacious kitchen there is a quarry tiled stone floor and with a nod to contemporary living an eye catching "duck egg blue" electric AGA to match the painted kitchen units, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and a fridge with small freezer department. A wall mounted TV.  There is a lovely long kitchen table - perfect just to sit around with a cup of coffee for a chat.

Just outside the back door there is a spacious new cloakroom with a toilet & hand basin.

Walk through an ancient arched oak doorway to the 'film set parlour' with one wall a great oak screen, a huge stone fireplace with a massive stone lintel over it - one wonders how on earth it could have been moved - let alone raised up in place and supported. Great oak beams with some of the original farm implements still hanging there.  But there are comfortable new sofas and chairs set around the fireplace ensuring this is a warm and comfortable welcoming room to relax. TV with Freeview.

There is a second smaller sittingroom or the snug, originally the dairy with sofa and chairs TV, CD player, Ipod docking station and lots of games.

There is also the "office" or writing room with a large desk and wifi  - a perfect place for getting down to a bit of work before returning to the real world.

Up steep stone stairs to three spacious bedroom - these stairs could be quite challenging for some people as they are steep and stone and at an odd angle at the top.

Bedroom 1: Double bedroom

Bedroom 2:  Two large single beds - 3ft 6ins.

Bedroom 3: King size bedroom with views up to The Sugar Loaf Mountain.

Bathroom: A beautifully new well fitted bathroom with a large electric shower, a separate bath, hand basin and toilet.

Outside the back door there is a large and enclosed garden with fabulous views up the valley to the hills.

Customer Comments

  • We were privileged to be the first guests to stay at this gem of a farmhouse after its restoration and conversion into a holiday home. It's now the perfect spot for a family or group of friends to enjoy everything that the Brecon area has to offer. So easy to get to as well for a gathering of people from different places as we had, with parking space for several cars.The owners have done a remarkable job of retaining the character of this ancient building by restoring original features and adding superbly crafted oak floorboards, doors and frames. Modern facilities have also been added, but without over modernising.
