Why Tracey Evans chose Abergavenny

This cottage is all about location easily accessible but well placed for all sorts of holiday activity.On the doorstep of the Brecon Beacons, within minutes of a World Heritage site, 10 minutes from the Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean and 40 minutes from Cardiff the capital city of Wales.

Yet when you return to our cottage your back in the peace of the countryside without a stressful journey down endless lanes we are very easy to find!

What makes this cottage unique

From the moment you arrive with a home made cake and some local produce we go out of our way to make this holiday memorable. We can arrange a farm tour to show you our way of life, or arrange walks that can introduce you to the flora and fauna of the area.

For the Salmon and Trout fisherman there is fishing available on our beat of the River Usk (extra cost)

Warm and Friendly

  • 5 of 5

The property was easy to find and the welcome very friendly, with a welcome basket which included a freshly baked (and still warm) cake. Cottage was well equipped and comfortable, with a pleasant walk to the local friendless church. Lots of wildlife and good walks. The location was ideal with dark skies for star gazing, with views of the Milky Way. Easy access to Abergavenny with its myriad of shops including a lovely fabric shop and an artisan chocolate shop. Lots of local historic attractions like Raglan Castle and three castle trail. Easy and quick access to Cardiff and the East Park and Ride scheme is great value for money. Still more to do on our next visit.

Lovely Stay

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage in an idyllic location. Located on a working farm with another holiday cottage alongside it. The owners were very hospitable and offered great advice on the area. If it had a washing machine and a better fridge and I would give it 5 stars
