This charming detached cottage is set in the heart of the Black Mountains and has wonderful views from the elevated garden. This is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Escape to the Brecon Beacons National Park and stay in this charming property nestled in the foothills of the Black Mountains, a unique destination best known for its superb views. Based just 4.5 miles from Abergavenny, you’ll soon be donning your walking boots and exploring your surroundings. The friendly owners have laid out a welcome pack of goodies for your visit, and fresh eggs and treats are available from the owner’s kitchen. Bright and contemporary with chic furniture and fresh decor, your accommodation is perfectly suited to cosy evenings snuggled up watching TV. High ceilings and natural light make this room a delightful open-plan space on sunny mornings, so rustle up breakfast for two and brew a pot of coffee ready to relax. The bed handily converts into a sofa bed, which works well for two friends touring the area together. To the back of the property is a bedroom with a lavish king-size bed, and there is an elegant shower room too. Your private outside area is reached via a set of steps and is an ideal spot for sharing a bottle of wine. Wrap a blanket around your legs and toast marshmallows on the fire pit or fire up the BBQ on summer afternoons. Discover a variety of walks from your doorstep, venturing through the beautiful countryside and scaling the peaks of the Black Mountains. Your prime position at the foot of the Sugar Loaf Mountain means you’ll never be far from a spectacular viewpoint, so pack up a picnic and remember your camera. Abergavenny is a 4-mile drive away promising an abundance of shops, eateries and amusements including the remnants of an impressive castle. Cycle hire is available locally, and keen fishermen can try casting their line on the River Usk for wild salmon and trout.
