Sugar loaf Farmhouse, Entering this glorious ancient farmhouse is stepping back in time; the main house was built in the 1480's and during the renovations the owners have carefully managed to keep many of the unique original features. The farmhouse is set a mile from Abergavenny, on the fertile farmland on the foothills of Sugar Loaf Mountain in The Black Mountains. Wonderful views up to the Sugar Loaf Mountain and classic walks straight from the door. Staying here you are not too far from the excellent Gastro pubs and restaurants, with well-known restaurants like the Hardwick and Walnut tree just a short drive away. Staying close to Abergavenny makes it a perfect for events such as the Abergavenny Food Festival, Cycling, Walking events and being able to reach The Welsh Valley, World Heritage Site and Welsh Marches.
Sleeps 6 - 3 bedrooms
Entering the spacious kitchen there is a quarry tiled stone floor and with a nod to contemporary living an eye catching "duck egg blue" electric AGA to match the painted kitchen units, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and a fridge with small freezer department. A wall mounted TV. There is a lovely long kitchen table - perfect just to sit around with a cup of coffee for a chat.
Just outside the back door there is a spacious new cloakroom with a toilet & hand basin.
Walk through an ancient arched oak doorway to the 'film set parlour' with one wall a great oak screen, a huge stone fireplace with a massive stone lintel over it - one wonders how on earth it could have been moved - let alone raised up in place and supported. Great oak beams with some of the original farm implements still hanging there. But there are comfortable new sofas and chairs set around the fireplace ensuring this is a warm and comfortable welcoming room to relax. TV with Freeview.
There is a second smaller sittingroom or the snug, originally the dairy with sofa and chairs TV, CD player, Ipod docking station and lots of games.
There is also the "office" or writing room with a large desk and wifi - a perfect place for getting down to a bit of work before returning to the real world.

Spectacular mountain scenery, a bustling market town and foods galore – Abergavenny has all the ingredients for a great holiday. Abergavenny is famed for its annual Food Festival, but you can enjoy fantastic food here all year round. For a special occasion, try The Hardwick, The Angel, The Skirrid or The Walnut Tree. Abergavenny is a great base for fantastic walking, mountain biking and road biking in the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons. It's easy to reach (just half an hour from the Severn Bridge) and great for a car-less holiday, with a railway station and a good bus service.

Mr Henson - 22nd June 2018
Hi. We stayed at Sugar Loaf farmhouse from 22 - 29 June " Upon arriving at this cottage the first thing you notice is how well equipped and spotlessly clean it is. The owners take an obvious pride in the maintenance of the property. One of the owners greeted us warmly on arrival to ensure that all was OK and she had also left various tasty items of food for our stay. The location is superb with great views and walks all around in a quiet rural location yet only five minutes drive into Abergavenny. We would strongly recommend this property." D & D Henson
