Description

Fancy taking a break in this delightful, Mews cottage? It lies tucked away in a small courtyard of cottages with gates shutting out the world, giving peace, quiet and privacy. Go through the gates and you are 50 yards from the centre of historic Abergavenny café culture, with its many coffee shops and bistro’s. Originally the site of a Roman fort, Gobannium, Abergavenny became a medieval walled town within the Welsh Marches, with its own Norman castle.
If walking or cycling is your thing, then Abergavenny is the gateway to the mountains, including the nearby Sugarloaf, the Blorenge, with the famous ’The Tumble’ cycle hill climb, and the five hills, Ysgyryd Fach, Deri, Rholben, Ysgyryd Fawr and Mynyd Llanwenarth. With easy access to the Brecon Beacons National Park and Black Mountains, Offa’s Dyke Path is close by and the Marches Way, the Beacons Way and Usk Valley Walk all pass through Abergavenny town. Fishing, golf and horse riding are all available nearby.
After all that walking or cycling and Welsh fresh air, why not relax and listen to the live music at the local public house, 50 yards away, on a Sunday evening, or simply relax in the courtyard with a glass of local wine? Shop, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

About the local area

The Brecon Beacons National Park covers over 500 square miles, from Llandeilo in the west to Hay on Wye in the east. The National Park contains a wide variety of spectacular scenery, with mountains, waterfalls, lakes and caves all in the area. The Brecon Beacons is also home to many species of bird life and wild plants.

In the Brecon Beacons National Park, you will find small towns, quaint villages and tiny hamlets sprinkled across the area. Ruined Welsh castles, Celtic standing stones and relics dating from the Neolithic and Bronze Age are to be found, some inscribed stones date from the 5th and 6th centuries.

The Brecon Beacons National Park reaches its highest peak at Pen y Fan, over 2900 feet. The 'Beacons' were the sites of ancient signal fires. Here the views are awe inspiring. At the eastern edge of the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains (not to be confused with the Black Mountain in the west), form the border between England and Wales, a border country of gentle landscapes, with easy access to the National Park.

The Brecon Beacons National Park is popular all year round with climbers, geologists, bird-watchers and botanists. There are all sorts of activities to choose from in the area, walking is very popular, not surprising with over one thousand miles of footpaths to choose from. There are guided walks, one way walks (catch the Brecon Bus to take you back to your starting point), even walks for those with limited mobility.

Visitors interested in cycling, horse riding, gliding, sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and fishing will find they are well catered for too. The Park also hosts events throughout the year and is home to many interesting attractions if your feet get a bit tired!
