One of two fantastic properties in a beautiful setting in the Brecon Beacons with plenty to explore right on your doorstep. A wonderfully presented property to return and relax in after a busy 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. Visit the historic town of Abergavenny with an eclectic mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, with regular food festivals and markets three miles. Interesting days out at Blaenavon Iron Works and The Big Pit or perhaps try star gazing at the Brecon Beacons Visitor Centre. Nearby you can visit galleries, museums and historic castles at Grosmont, White Castle and Raglan. 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.

On entering the property, the interior is a wonderful surprise with a light and airy feel, achieved with a contemporary finish following a conversion in 2017. Enter into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, the double height ceiling adds to the spacious feel of this impressive family room. There are two leather sofas alongside a lovely reclaimed coffee table to play games or just sit back and watch the Smart TV. Leading on from here is the stylish and well-equipped kitchen with electric oven, induction hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and the washing machine is housed in separate room. This welcoming space also has the dining area with doors leading to outside. Laid out across the ground floor there are three bedrooms, a master king-size with en-suite wet room with WC, a further 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. A fabulous and warming property, with the benefit of underfloor heating, making this a super retreat at any time of the year.

Outside there is a large private enclosed garden, with patio area with furniture and lawn beyond. There is ample private parking adjacent to the property.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

SLEEPS: There are three bedrooms, one with a king-size bed, one with twin beds that can be made as super-king-sizes on request and a further king-size room.

RELAXING: Electric and underfloor heating and Wi-Fi is included for your stay.

Absolutely stunning property. A very well equipped kitchen (far better equipped than my own!) and fantastic outdoor space for the dogs. Lovely touch with bottle of wine and local flower seeds and lip balm left by the owner. My boys who are 16 and 17 really enjoyed too and enjoyed playing chess from the board games available and playing their music Read morethrough the Bluetooth speaker there. Would definitely recommend.
