About 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.
