  • "Lovely cottage, pubs and shops nearby."

    There is a canal just up the hill which provides a nice area for a walk, perfect if you bring your dog. The cottage is a good base to explore other areas, we only had a short stay but we drove to Abergavenny and Crickhowell. Highly recommend, also an enclosed garden to the rear, perfect if you have a dog or just to relax.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback Property Owner

  • "This is a very comfortable cottage in a beautiful and accessible location, which we found to be spotlessly clean, warm and well equipped."

    We appreciated the call from your housekeeper the day before we arrived, the detailed instructions in the property, and the provision of things like loo rolls, dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid. Thank you!

    Thank you for your feedback. I will pass your comments on to Lori, she's a great manager and invaluable member of our team. Come back soon Property Owner

This pet-friendly home features a charming interior with a toasty open fire, making it great for a getaway with friends, family, or even a couple.

The Towpath Inn, a village pub with a beer garden, The Corn Exchange, where you may sample great wine, and a shop are all located at the doorstep, for your evening tipple, a meal out, or simply stocking up on the essentials.
