A delightful ground floor wing of a detached cottage, looking out to the Sugar Loaf Mountain in the magnificent Brecon Beacons and situated close to Abergavenny, renowned as Wales’ culinary centre.

Gilwern is a sweet village with pubs, shops and a picturesque canal all within walking distance. It sits on the edge of the Blaenavon World Heritage site and you can enjoy country walks right from your doorstep or perhaps take a visit to the historic town of Abergavenny full of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes. Visit nearby galleries, museums, castles and vineyard or take a trip on a narrow boat which you can see passing by at the bottom of the garden! Other attractions in the area include Blaenavon Iron Works, The Big Pit or star gazing at the Brecon Beacons Visitor Centre or why not try horse riding, golf, climbing and kayaking on the Usk and Wye.

Enter through the stable door into the hallway which leads straight into the well-equipped kitchen with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. Located off the hallway is the master bedroom which is light and airy and has a super-king-size zip-and-link bed (which can be made up as a twin on request). There is a wet room with shower and WC. Head from the kitchen to the comfortable, traditionally furnished lounge where you can relax on the sofa in front of the wood burner effect electric fire and watch SkyTV (with basic package) or a movie on the DVD and head out to the garden through the French doors.

Outside there is an enclosed covered veranda, with hot tub, gas BBQ and garden furniture looking out to the Sugar Loaf Mountain. Here you can cook or simply relax and unwind whatever the weather. Beyond this are large shared grounds that lead all the way down to the canal. Private off-road parking and covered area for bikes available. There is an exercise paddock available for dogs.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Lovely place. Great hosts. Very dog friendly.

We had an amazing 3 night stay here. The owners John & Pippa could not have been more accommodating, showing us around & offering cups of tea. The hot tub is beautiful, in the perfect location for the views, and lovely to relax in after a day of walking. Would highly recommend!

Brilliant holiday cottage in a lovely location. Poppy and John were most welcoming. The paddock was an exceptionally good facility to excercise our dog. Hot tub, superb accommodation and dog friendly what more could you ask for especially in view of the atrocious weather that we experienced whilst there.

Little Orchard Retreat is in a wonderfully,peaceful location. The view towards the Sugar Loaf Mountain from the cosy lounge is so tranquil. The hot tub is an added bonus, even on a cloudy, murky October day. Our welcome from our hosts, Pippa and John was warm and genuine. A welcome plate of Bara Brith and Welsh Cakes was enjoyed along with the fresRead moreh milk and elderflower presse in the fridge. The location was perfect for visits to family, friends and old haunts in Monmouthshire and Powys too. 5* Hide
