Nestled beside the Clydach River within the natural beauty of the Clydach Gorge (itself an SSSI) the cottage is close to an abundance of trails and paths to explore, so pack your hiking boots and escape to the country.

The cosy yet bright interior of this bolthole will help whisk you into holiday mode as you return from your adventures in the great outdoors each day - or maybe slow down the pace and relax inside this charming cottage and feel at home amongst creature comforts. Open-plan living makes the most of the space in this single-storey property. The kitchen, lounge and diner together form the hub of the home where you can sprawl on the sofa, cook up a storm and dine together. The lounge area houses a wood burner effect gas fire to keep you warm on chilly evenings as you curl up in front of the TV or with a good book. The light kitchen offers a welcoming space for all hands on deck to get involved with mealtimes before you serve up and raise a toast at the table which comfortably seats four. Both the double and twin bedrooms are treated to en-suite shower rooms for ease freshening up in the mornings. Rise and shine in these pleasantly decorated rooms and open the blinds for views across the charming grounds.

The attention to detail continues outside, sip a mug of hot coffee on the patio for an al fresco start to the day or fire up the BBQ in the evenings for a summer feast. The cottage sits in the beautifully cared for grounds of the owner’s house, so you can bask in the sun on your private lawn and listen to the babbling of the river. Off road parking for three cars adjacent to this property.

 The local village of Gilwern with its choice of pubs and local stores is 1 mile away from your door and steps onto the banks of the Brecon and Monmouthshire canal, ideal for a gentle wander or even to hire a barge from Gilwern Wharf. The more thrill seeking amongst you can go caving less than 3 miles from home as you explore Ogof Craig a Ffynnon.  Bring or hire a bike to experience the renowned Bike Park Wales or explore the local trails from your door. Walkers can explore the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains or the Sugar Loaf, Skirrid and Blorenge mountains on your doorstep and wander the network of tram roads which link to the Industrial heritage of the area .Visit the Clydach and Blaenafon Ironworks and the Big Pit mining museum to relive the atmosphere of Cordells ' Rape of the Fair Country’. Steeped in myth and legend it is written that William Shakespeare was inspired to write a ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ following a visit to the Clydach Gorge.
The nearby market town of Abergavenny and village of Crickhowell offer independent shops and excellent restaurants as well as opportunities to stroll or fish along the banks of the premier Welsh salmon and wild trout Usk river.
