  • A stylish three-storey town house with retro vibe, set in a secluded location overlooking the River Clydach

  • Within easy reach of Crickhowell, Abergavenny and Brecon
Property code: 86615

Forming part of an award-winning mill conversion, this sympathetically finished three-storey town house is nestled in the rugged Clydach gorge, yet is just 200 metres from Gilwern village centre.

Slip away for a stylish getaway at this wonderful three-storey townhouse set in the dramatic landscape of the Clydach Gorge on the edge of the Blaenavon World Heritage Site. Sleeping four people across two bedrooms, this elegant home is part of an impressive textile mill conversion. It’s an excellent accommodation option for small families or groups of friends who want to spend their days paddling down the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal or tasting wine in the local vineyard, and their evenings meeting locals in the cosy village pubs of Gilwern or enjoying a glass of wine on the terrace to the front of the house.

Step inside and you’ll find yourself in a chic and spacious kitchen/dining area. Whip up some dinner and gather your loved ones around the table to dine. After dinner, head out to the terrace at the front of the property to enjoy a glass of wine as the stars come out, or make your way up to the first-floor lounge to enjoy the view of the river from the Juliet balcony. Alternatively, open the French doors and take a seat on the rear terrace, or slip onto a sofa in the retro-style lounge and chill out in front of the TV. When it’s time for bed, you’ll find two comfortable bedrooms on the second-floor.

Head to Goytre Wharf (8.5 miles) to hire a canal boat and spend a peaceful day sailing down the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. Alternatively, make your way into Abergavenny (4.5 miles) to shop at one of the weekly markets in the Victorian Market Hall. Or spend a wonderful afternoon at Sugar Loaf Vineyard (5 miles). Take a tour or just drop in for a tasting – either way the views of the Usk Valley are exquisite.

We had a very nice 8 days in Flannel House recently. It was quiet and comfortable, very clean and well equipped. It's well positioned just above the river Clydach, were we saw dippers. We had no problems with the three storeys but it's a long way back up if you've forgotten something! There was a welcome pack of bara brith and milk in the fridge, tRead moreea and coffee - thank you so much, it was really appreciated. Gilwern is very well positioned for hiking and exploring the beautiful Usk Valley. Hide

We were a bit disappointed as the house was quite tired and shabby and could have been cleaner. The double bed was comfortable but there are no wardrobes in the rooms. The upstairs shower is very good and powerful. Both the outside seating areas are very poor and the one out of the lounge at the back is unusable. There is a lot to do in the area soRead more we enjoyed getting out and about. Hide

Really lovely property in a great setting. Loads of space and stays nice and cool in the summer heat. Right next to a river and canal and multiple reservoirs locally for sailing, SUP boarding and kayaking. Great support from the lady that looks after the property, we'll definitely be back.

Fabulous property in wonderful location, right next to a little river and close to the canal. Surrounded by greenery, and very peaceful, with just the sounds of birdsong and running water. Accommodation is very spacious, spread over three floors, so plenty of room to spread out, although lots of stairs! Comfy bed, nice showers, well-equipped kitcheRead moren. Nostalgic old record player complete with vinyl! Also lots of maps and books. Plenty of parking. Would definitely return! Hide

This property is ideal if all you want is a quit get away. It's clean and well presented. It's over 3 floors with a stream running at the back. The atmosphere and people and friendly and welcoming. We stayed 1 week and the time just seemed to pass by. We are definitely going back when we need to chill out and relax again.

This was a great place to stay. It was very comfortable and quiet. The property was clean and reasonably well equipped. The location is great for a wide area of South Wales. It was possible to walk locally beside the canal which is beautiful Travelling into the Brecon Beacons was easy with great road links. There is so much to do in the area.
