This cosy bungalow makes a perfect retreat for a couple seeking a relaxing Brecon holiday home. Close to Abergavenny, the property lies in a tranquil spot within the grounds of the owner’s property.
Near the River Gavenny and in sight of the Holy Mountain, Skirrid, this attractive cottage is set in the tiny village of Mardy just a mile to the north of the historic market town of Abergavenny. Mardy has a chip shop, pub and convenience store, or you can head into Abergavenny, which is known for its annual Food Festival as well as its excellent range of restaurants, pubs, farmers’ markets and its Norman castle. This is a wonderful base for exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park which lies immediately to the north and west, with plenty of opportunities for walking, mountain biking, pony trekking and climbing. Also nearby are the Black Mountains (12 miles), Llanthony Priory (10 miles) and Llanover Garden (6 miles).
