One of two fantastic properties in a beautiful setting in the Brecon Beacons, with lots to see and do right on your doorstep. A lovingly presented home to return to and relax in at the end of your day.

Secluded converted henhouse set in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Country and mountain walks are right on your doorstep, with the Sugar Loaf and Skirrid providing an amazing backdrop. Three miles to the delightful, historic town of Abergavenny with an eclectic mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, with regular food festivals and markets to enjoy. Visit nearby galleries, museums and historic castles at Grosmont, White Castle and Raglan. Interesting days out at Blaenavon Iron Works and The Big Pit or perhaps try star gazing at the Brecon Beacons Visitor Centre. There are plenty of activities to enjoy including riding, golf, kayaking on the Usk and Wye or a visit to Hay-on-Wye, the town of books, which is within easy reach.

Entering into the property, the interior is a marvellous surprise with a light and airy feel, achieved with a contemporary finish following a conversion in 2017. Step into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, the double height ceiling adds to the spacious feel of this impressive room. There are two leather sofas alongside a large coffee table to play games or just watch the Smart TV. Beyond, there is a kitchen with electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher, the washing machine. This welcoming space also has the dining area with a marvellous table and benches and bi-fold doors leading to the outside world. All laid out across the ground floor there are two bedrooms, a master king-size with en-suite shower room with WC and a twin bedroom (which can be made up as a super-king-size on request) with an en-suite bathroom with WC. All in all, a fabulous and warming environment, with the benefit of underfloor heating, making this a super family or couples’ retreat at any time of year.

Ideal location for people who want peace and quiet, who have dogs maybe, very secure gardens. However, be prepared to drive on narrow lanes (mind you there's a lot of them). We found it fairly easy to navigate to from Hereford not from Abergavenny so I don't know what it's like approaching from motorways.

Beautiful setting with very quiet single track road. Friendly welcome from the owner and his children. Underfloor heating was amazing! Very comfortable furniture and although the shower room in the main bedroom was quite small it was ok for our short break.

Lovely, modern home. Thoroughly enjoyed our new year break here. The garden in the hideaway looks out over beautiful views and enjoys unbroken sun. Our dogs were able to explore the garden without fear of them escaping through any gaps, which was a big bonus!

This is a great house in a great location. Fantastic views from the house and lots to do in the area. Hideaway is lovely and warm, private and quiet and a truly great place to return to after a long walk or day out. I was very glad to return to the heated floors and deep bath tub after canyoning in a beautiful, but cold, Welsh river!

The location of the cottage allows for total privacy. The cottage is very clean and provided with excellent facilities. The hosts are really helpful. The only downside is that one of the the ensuite bathrooms is a bit small. They have an excellent living area with a communal type of dining table which was really good for our family. Overall a nice Read moreexperience. Hide
