  • Within a mile of the picturesque market town of Abergavenny
Property code: BN408

This cosy cottage makes a perfect retreat for a couple seeking a relaxing holiday home. Close to Abergavenny, the property lies in a tranquil spot within the grounds of the owner’s property.

Recharge your batteries at this immaculately presented cottage for two just a mile from the vibrant market town of Abergavenny. It’s an ideal base for exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park while still being close to shops, culture and entertainment. The Corn Store has been very well converted from the historic storage building associated with the mill that dates back to the 17th century, and is all on the ground floor. Outside, the cottage has its own lawned garden, stone patio and separate decked area with a stone built BBQ.

With so much on your doorstep, you may not need to spend much time indoors, but the well appointed,light and airy living space is perfect for unwinding at the end of the day. You can gaze out of the window while sat at the dining table as you share a romantic meal prepared with local Welsh produce. Afterwards, get toasty in front of the wood burner on relaxing evenings in – the super-king-size bed is an especially welcome sight after long hikes in the Brecon Beacons. The pretty garden is partially shaded with conifer trees, so you can keep out of the sun on scorching summer days. It’s a lovely spot to sit and relax with a glass of wine or grilled BBQ treat and listen to the sounds of the River Gavenny as it rolls down the valley to meet the river Usk. 

The property is in the village of Mardy, where you can pick up a fish supper from the local chippy or get any essentials you need. Or you can head into Abergavenny, known for its annual food festival, farmers’ markets and Norman castle. There are plenty of opportunities to get active in this part of the world as you can go walking, mountain biking, pony trekking and climbing in the national park. Also nearby is the hillside setting of the Brecon and Monmouthshire canal with beautiful views. Over the Blorenge mountain with stunning panoramic vistas, is the Blaenavon Ironworks (7.5 miles), where you can discover how the site powered the Industrial Revolution and explore the 19th-century workers’ cottages.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The Brecon Beacons is a vast, mountainous and rural region of Wales. Stretching 42 miles from east to west and covering an area of 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons is dominated by the National Park of the same name. Split into three main areas, the Black Mountain in the west, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr in the middle, and the Black Mountains in the east; each is a wild, bold and inspiring place to visit on holiday. With 1232 miles of public trails which includes the 95-mile-long Beacons Way, it’s a wayfarer’s delight. One of four Dark Skies Reserves in the UK (and one of 11 in the world), stargazers can delight in the open night sky, to enjoy the darkness in full splendour. The Fforest Fawr is a UNESCO Global Geopark because of its important geology and a need to conserve and protect the area from negative over development.

Stay at a self-catering cottage in the mountains and cascading woodlands or out on the moors; you can also stay in one of the Brecon Beacon’s lovely towns like Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Llangorse or Brecon. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a choice of easy to challenging treks up and around Sugar Loaf Mountain, Carn Pica, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad, Pen y Fan, or Hatterall Ridge (and many more besides). Take in uniquely Welsh attractions like Dan-yr-Ogof (the National Showcaves Centre for Wales), The Big Pit Mining Museum, Llanthony Priory, Carreg Cennen Castle, Fourteen Locks, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. Wildlife abounds in the Brecon Beacons, and it’s a great place to spot red kites and discover the successful story of their reintroduction to the UK’s skies at the Red Kite Centre. There’s so much to do for outdoor lovers and extreme sports fans here, so why not book your self-catering holiday in the Brecon Beacons today?

Our holiday cottages across the Brecon Beacons have been carefully selected. From dog-friendly cottages in the countryside to large farmhouses on the mountainsides and everything in between, we have a holiday in the Brecon Beacons to suit you.
