This superb, Victorian farmhouse is packed with modern comforts and boasts a large garden. Step out of the front door and you’re already on the footpath to the Black Mountains, which runs from the farmyard. The property is within 1 mile of the pretty Georgian town of Crickhowell in the heart of the stunning Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park. Take a stroll or cycle along the River Usk and Brecon to Monmouth Canal, or climb Table Mountain, which is directly behind the house. More challenging climbs include Sugar Loaf, The Blorenge and Llangattock Mountain, which are all within easy reach (all within 10 miles). Local activities include fishing, pony trekking, caving, and zip wires, and local attractions include Big Pit (11.5 miles) for an underground tour of an old coal mine, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway (19 miles). You can quench your thirst in one of Crickhowell’s many watering holes or peruse its independent shops. Abergavenny is 5 miles away and famed for its annual food festival and year-round dining. The annual Green Man music festival site is also within 3.5 miles.

As you step through the front door of this charming stone farmhouse, you’re greeted by a welcoming hall with a feature fireplace that makes you feel instantly at home. The house has been creatively designed to retain its character, with period fireplaces, exposed beams (some are low in the bedrooms), and modern twists. There’s a stylish shaker-style kitchen, complete with a Nespresso coffee machine. It’s been designed for creative cooking, making it a fabulous space to rustle up a meal with all the local produce you’ve purchased on your travels. The large, country cottage dining table becomes the perfect setting for everyone to gather around and spend time together. If the weather’s nice, open the two sets of French dining room doors and let the outside in, or for a cosy night in, light the wood burner and bask in its warming glow. After dinner, you can enjoy a game of table football, or head through to the large lounge. This impressive room has exposed oak beams, comfortable sofas, and another wood burner, which is surrounded by the house’s original Welsh slate mantelpiece—it’s the perfect spot to snuggle up and plan your holiday activities. Afterwards, you can watch Netflix on the Smart TV or pick from the variety of family-friendly games tucked away in the wooden chest. On the ground floor, you’ll also find a utility and boot room—again, featuring some impressive original oak beams—and a lovely bespoke feature door leading through to the stylish downstairs shower and WC.

When you’re ready to retire, you have five distinctive bedrooms on the first floor to choose from. The main bedroom has a king-size bed and features oak beams and a period fireplace. It also has a quirky ensuite bathroom with a large shower and a huge, sunken, double-ended bath—perfect for a soak with the view of Table Mountain through the window. There is another bedroom with a king-size bed and views of the Sugar Loaf Mountain, and this has a Jack and Jill shower room that’s shared with the bedroom opposite. That bedroom can be arranged with two single beds or one king-size bed if you’d prefer. There's another bedroom with a king-size bed at the back of the house, and a bedroom with a double bed in the middle of the house. All the bedrooms have been designed with a good night’s sleep in mind (including black-out blinds) and whichever room you choose you’ll have fantastic views to wake up to. There is also a luxurious and spacious Victorian-style family bathroom which features the original fireplace, large shower, and roll-top bath, in which you can sit back, relax, and gaze out across the stunning Usk Valley. The house has such amazing views because it is surrounded by open farmland.

There is a large, private lawned garden to the side of the house with a slide and swings for the children to enjoy. There’s another lawned area behind the house with steps leading down to the large patio that’s off the dining room. The patio area features a large dining table and chairs and a charcoal Weber BBQ. The front garden has a rustic bench looking down a garden path with lawns on either side. This is the perfect place to sit with your morning coffee for a quiet moment of contemplation enjoying the view. The property is situated on a working farm, where you can watch the spring lambs skipping in the fields surrounding the house, just feet away as you stare out of a window or sit in the garden. From sunrise to sunset, you’ll always find the perfect spot to relax, enjoy the sunshine and embrace the stunning scenery of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The amazing views aren’t just for daylight hours, though; on a clear night, the dark skies are perfect for stargazing – feel free to maximize what you can see with the telescope provided.
