    “An exceptionally charming, warm and welcoming cabin - nestled in its own fenced off area (great for dogs!”

    !) within a lovely field with lots of wild life... what more could you want! Nicole has created an amazing place to stay and was so welcoming - we personally had a terrible journey causing us to be late checking in, but Nicole was so understanding and really helped us continue our holiday. Once we arrived we instantly understood this was a special place - we were able to take walks straight from the cabin, eat our meals out on the decking in the sun and spend cosy evenings warm in front of the telly (when the English weather came!). It's a great base location for various walks around the Brecon Beacons and beyond - we even made it to the Pembrokeshire Coast one day. We couldn't speak more highly of this place and have already recommended it to family, friends and colleagues - we cant wait to come back!!

The property

This 100-year-old railway carriage has been converted into a shepherds-hut-style accommodation, compact and rustic, with an open-plan formation.

Plan a romantic getaway for two, or escape into the peace and quiet for some leisure time away from the hustle and bustle.

Steps lead up to the property entrance, where you can really feel the sense of character and charm inviting you inside, a lovely place to return to after an eventful afternoon.

Evenings can be spent outside relaxing in front of the fire pit toasting marshmallows with a warm cup of tea, followed by a peaceful night's sleep in the well-appointed double bedroom.

Wake up to the homely interior all over again and start your morning by preparing breakfast in the kitchen area, whilst you make plans for the day ahead.

Why not take a moment to be at one with the location by strolling out to the enclosed garden, a chance to sit back and admire the hillside views which are located before you?

The market town of Abergavenny nestles between seven mountains, with the River Usk flowing through it, resulting in beautiful scenery from every direction.

Further afield, the town boasts a castle with its own museum, churches, an indoor market hall, and a multitude of pubs and restaurants, with something for everyone.

Not forgetting the wealth of natural beauty and walks past the Wye Valley, along the Brecon Canal or the Brecon Beacons.

A destination not to be missed.
