The perfect hidden escape from the city!

Perfect for adventurous romantics, this inviting hut boasts a fantastic rural setting with plenty to explore nearby. Discover castle country to the north or travel 3 miles south to Usk where welcoming pubs and waterside walks await. Bring your four-legged third wheel along and get cosy together in front of the wood burner or the firepit after days in the great outdoors. Climb steps to make your way inside this welcoming hut which sits in a pretty, enclosed garden in the owner’s grounds. Tranquil tones flow throughout and with plenty of natural light flooding inside, you’ll find it easy to switch off and relax in this rural setting. Cleverly designed to maximise space, the open-plan living area consists of a small kitchen area, a table for two and space to curl up in front of the warming wood burner. The coffee machine is a welcome addition when your plans require you to rise early, and you can enjoy your morning drinks outside in the garden where there is a hammock and outdoor furniture. Enjoy post-adventure BBQs here before settling into bed in the inviting double bedroom. There is parking available. Tucked between the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, fill your days with walks, hikes and scenic picnics with food picked up from some fabulous foodie destinations. Make the 3-mile trip to the market town of Usk and visit the castle, wander the river or tuck into tasty food at one of the pubs. The Gateway to Wales, Abergavenny, is 12.5 miles away and hosts an annual food festival, boasts walks up the Sugar Loaf, Skirrid and Blorenge mountains, and has many cycling routes for you to follow if you want to explore on two wheels.
