  • "Excellent cottage ideally situated and People very friendly."

    Reviewed by KevinOct 2021

  • "The property is beautifully decorated and we had everything we needed ."

    The staircase is very steep and narrow a little negotiation needed for taller people ! The bed is very low but comfortable. If I had to comment on anything the outside areas both front and back aren’t very inviting. The front isn’t private the back is but no where to sit . Lots of information provided by the owners. Quite a few take always and a good position for lots of walking and visiting local areas.

  • "The cottage is very nice and clean, very cozy."

    Ideal for 2 people with a small dog but a squeeze for more than that, especially for eating, unless you move the table towards the middle of the room. The garden is at the front, so it was not private. The cottage was tastefully decorated and had a lot of information about places to go, maps, emergency contacts and others. We had some nice welsh cakes as an arrival treat and also a treat for our dog. Also food and water bowls plus a towel for the furry guest. Comfortable main bedroom and good size bathroom. The town is very quiet and has a few amenities.

The property

Nestled at the heart of the quaint and charming town of Blaenavon, you will find 5 Lower Ellick Street, set in a landscape that is favoured by walkers, cyclists and bikers.

Blaenavon is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, for the part the area played as the world’s major producer of iron and coal in the 19th Century.

The main attractions include the Big Pit National Coal Museum, Blaenavon Ironworks, the World Heritage Centre, Blaenavon Heritage Railway, Garn Lakes, Rhymney Brewery, all just a few minutes away from 5 Lower Ellick Street.

Surrounded by beautiful green scenery with the Brecon Beacons National Park right at your fingertips, this idyllic mid-terrace cottage offers a great base from which a couple or small family of three can tour this magnificent part of Wales.

Feel the warmth of this humble abode as you step inside the open-plan living space and discover chic fabric sofas perfectly positioned in front of the electric stove, a wonderful place to rest and recuperate following a fun-filled day exploring the area.

Joining this space is a pretty cream kitchen, kitted out with all the necessary appliances needed to cook up a storm, as well as a spacious wood dining table where you can indulge in many of your meals.

Take the striking winding staircase up to the first floor and discover a stylish grey bathroom with cheerful mustard hues, perfect for a long afternoon soak as you delight in a moment of peace and quiet.

From here, two homely bedrooms await you; the first of the bedrooms is a gorgeous double with ample space to store your belongings, whilst the second is home to a single bed, ideal for those travelling with a child.

Spend warm summer evenings out in the front garden, basking in the sunshine whilst delighting in a refreshing beverage at the bistro table.

To the rear of the property, an enclosed courtyard provides somewhere to wash muddy paws, boots and store bikes.

Venture to Keepers Pond at the top of the Blorenge mountain, boasting unrivalled views across the mountains and valleys, so spectacular it will literally take your breath away.

Further afield, the Sugar Loaf and the Skirrid mountains await or if you really fancy a challenge, Pen Y Fan which is used as a military training ground.

There are miles and miles of former railway lines and canal towpaths to explore, signed routes on the national cycle network.

If that’s too tame, go for the ultimate mountain bike downhill experience at Bike Park Wales or Black Mountains Cycle Centre.

Nearby Abergavenny is popular for its well-known food festival, gastro pubs and quirky shops galore.

Fancy a drive to the coast, then you must go to the Merthyr Mawr Warren Nature Reserve, home to the highest sand dune in Wales.

This area is a haven for wildlife, extending to circa 800 acres of grasslands, saltmarsh, woodland and beach, with waymarked walks from Candleston car park.

Wander Blaen llia and see Porth yr Ogof cave, or spend the day in the Merthyr Tydfil and tour the Cyfarthfa Castle Museum and Art Gallery, and 13th century ruins of Morlais Castle.

See the cascading waters of Sgwd Yr Eira Waterfall, or head to Afan Forest Park for a thrilling cycle along the banks of Afon Corrwg.

Those travelling with children (or adults not ready to grow up) should be sure to stop by Cantref Adventure Farm, or enjoy an afternoon of Super Tubing.

Just a pleasant drive away, the city of Newport is not to be missed, with attractions such as the Newport Museum and Art Gallery, Belle Vue Park and Allt-yr-yn Nature Reserve all resting on the banks of the River Usk.
