A Scandinavian-inspired lodge tucked in the foothills of the Sugar Loaf Mountain, boasting panoramic views and easy access to an abundance of scenic walks.
Surrounded by beautiful gardens, this charming lodge is one of two properties set opposite the owner’s home. The handy location means you could soon be exploring the various trails and footpaths leading from your doorstep, marvelling at the scenery over the Usk Valley as you scale the Sugar Loaf Mountain. Weary from your adventures, the local pub 0.5 miles away has a fine selection of real ales and hearty meals to save you from cooking. The local area is renowned for being popular amongst foodies, with two Michelin-starred restaurants and celebrated gastropubs within 9 miles. If you time your visit to coincide with the Abergavenny Food Festival in September, you’ll be in for a treat.
Accessed via a gently stepped path, the property itself is a cosy retreat that sleeps four guests across two bedrooms. The comfortable lounge is bright and spacious, featuring a vaulted ceiling and original beams. Natural light streams in through the French doors and the room is equipped with snug sofas, a TV/DVD player, and an inviting dining area tailor-made for enjoying home-cooked meals. From here, you’ll be able to find the elegant galley kitchen, complete with a gas cooker, grill, hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, toaster, and coffee maker. The first of the two bedrooms is a spacious double, and the second is a twin with zip-and-link beds that can be converted into a double on request. There is a shower room with WC and shared laundry facilities can be found on-site. The friendly owners can also be approached to ask about the best routes for exploring the area.
Outside, a sunny terrace overlooks 3.5 acres of attractive gardens and a small area of woodland, home to a few curious pheasants that wander throughout the area. If you want to explore the local area, there is a path to Sugar Loaf Mountain right from the sun terrace.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
