  • A restored 18th-century stable block, this dwelling is brimming with charm, character and history
  • The Clydach Gorge walk passes right by the cottage making it the perfect retreat for walkers
  • Fire up the wood burner to keep you warm and content as you enjoy the welcome pack left for you by the owners
Property code: BN187

Nestled beside the Clydach River within the natural beauty of the Clydach Gorge (itself an SSSI) the cottage is close to an abundance of trails and paths to explore, so pack your hiking boots and escape to the country.

This charming bolthole is the perfect home from home for families and friends to enjoy together. The large patio is great for dining alfresco and basking in the sun or you can cosy up by the wood burner which keeps the heart of the home welcoming and warm. Arranged over one level, you can enjoy a relaxed family holiday together.

 

The open-plan living space consists of a light kitchen with a dining table, and the inviting lounge area. Sprawl on the sofa and bask in the warmth of the roaring wood burner or pop the kettle on in the kitchen where you have all the equipment needed to cook up a storm. Plate up at the dining table or serve up a sizzling BBQ on the patio. Sitting in the grounds of the owner’s house, the garden spaces are beautifully kept so you can enjoy the outside space just as much as the inside. Both bedrooms are decorated in sumptuous tones and have en-suites so you can freshen up for the day with ease. Filled with natural light which floods in through floor-to-ceiling windows, the bedrooms are tranquil and calming spaces in which you should have no trouble drifting off.

 

Located in the charming village of Clydach, hop on the Clydach Gorge Walk straight from your door, or travel 2 miles to the neighbouring village of Gilwern where you can tuck into a tasty meal. Book on a Brecon Beacons Tour which leaves from Abergavenny Station and takes you past panoramic peak tops, tumbling waterfalls and majestic mountains.

Lovely clean and tidy cottage, well positioned to explore the Brecon Beacons. Warm and cosy and suited our needs well. Only 10 minutes from Abergavenny, and right next to the A465 which gets you into the heart of the Beacons really quickly.

Had the most wonderful two weeks at Hayman's. Everything was just perfect. There were lovely welcome goodies for us on arrival. The owners went out of their way to ensure that we were happy, but then completely left us to have our holiday and respected our privacy. The cottage is extensively equipped, spotless and comfortable. The location is idyllRead moreic in the Clydach gorge and next to the very calming Clydach river which babbles directly behind the cottage. Good road links too. 5 stars, in fact 6! Hide
