  • “A lovely little cottage, fantastic use of space, but a tad too small for me being a larger lady, so not their fault I got it wrong .”

    The only down side to the cottage for me was the oven tins could of been cleaner, everything else was fine .

The property

A delightful, cosy, semi-detached cottage in the heart of the popular village of Gilwern just a short walk from local shops and pubs.

The cottage is a perfect base for couples looking to enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside, a short drive from the thriving market town of Abergavenny.

Set over two floors, there is one comfortable bedroom with adjacent shower room.

There is also a compact, open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and comfy seating, perfect to curl up and watch TV after a day exploring the stunning mountain scenery.

You are ideally placed to enjoy walks from the door, being a stone’s throw from the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal which runs through the village.

This opens up a peaceful paced walk as it winds itself through the striking countryside of Mid Wales, and introduces the industrial heritage of the area with the World Heritage Site of Big Pit Museum and local iron works.

You are ideally placed to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park with its abundance of walking, cycling and pony trekking, or you can explore the thriving market town of Abergavenny, renowned for its local produce or perhaps take the opportunity to visit some renowned restaurants for a romantic meal, with restaurants, including ones with Michelin Stars being a short drive away.

The area offers numerous outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, fishing and local golf courses.

A short drive will take you to either to the stunning mountain landscapes of the Brecon Beacons National Park or the meandering river of the Wye Valley.

Slightly further afield, to the south, you have the cosmopolitan city of Cardiff with its vibrant waterfront, castle and Millennium Stadium; it is a truly diverse city which acts as a gateway to the sweeping sandy beaches of South Wales.

A perfect, cosy retreat for couples in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park and in a popular village which is surrounded by stunning mountain countryside with lovely walks along the canal, close to your front door.
