Fishermen and walkers alike will be in their element in this delightful barn conversion on the banks of the River Usk, with easy access to the picturesque Welsh Valleys.

Set in a rural location on the eastern side of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this property is just 1 mile from the village of Gilwern, with its two pubs, butchers, fish and chip shop, corner shop and garage. For a wider choice of amenities, head into nearby Abergavenny or Crickhowell. Keen walkers will be spoilt for choice with Sugar Loaf Mountain (6 miles) and Skirrid (7 miles) mountains both just a short drive away, while Pen y Fan (24 miles) and Pen y Crug (19 miles) offer further challenges and fantastic views from the tops. For those who prefer to be out on the water, Llangorse Lake (14 miles) offers sailing and kayaking, while the 13th-century Tretower Castle (7 miles) is well worth a visit for history lovers.

Reached via a few steps and with oak flooring, an open-plan layout, soft neutral decor and plenty of natural light throughout, this tastefully converted single-storey barn offers a home from home in a peaceful setting. Cook and entertain in the fantastic spacious kitchen/dining area with its chic cabinets, farmhouse table seating four, electric oven, induction hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washer/dryer. Step through into the inviting living area for a relaxing evening of TV, reading or games with the family. Ideal in all seasons, the barn has a roaring wood burner for chilly winter evenings and a patio for warmer summer days - accessed via French doors from the living area. This property boasts two charming bedrooms, one king-size with Smart TV and en-suite wet room and one twin with Smart TV and views over the orchard. There is also a spacious bathroom with shower over the bath.

Step outside from the living area into the delightful walled enclosed garden. With a BBQ and garden furniture, this is a wonderful spot for al fresco dining overlooking the ancient orchard and open fields beyond. There is ample off-road parking.

Lovely position for peace and quiet at Apple Blossom Cottage . Owners friendly and caring .

Reviewed by Mr Greene, August 2020

Spotlessly clean and comfortable, well kitted out and ideally located for local strolls, fishing in the Usk and climbing the nearby hills. Owners were very helpful and we loved the fresh eggs fro the chickens.

Reviewed by Mrs Allen, July 2020

Apple Blossom cottage is stylish, spacious and very comfortable. We found it spotlessly clean and well equipped though some items had been removed to comply with coronavirus regulations. There is also a nice garden to relax in. The location is excellent with nearby hills to climb and walks along the canal to the lovely towns of Abergavenny and CrRead moreickhowell. Hide
