Description

Set in a village location in the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons), within large grounds, with an electric-gated entrance leading to two cottages and the owners home, this delightful Gilwern cottage is an extremely well presented holiday base. Step into the spacious open plan living space with high apex beams and patio doors to the garden, and you will be delighted with your choice. This room really is a superb place to gather together and cook, eat and relax before and after your varied days out in this beautifully scenic area. Two double bedrooms, the family bathroom and a small games room complete the ground floor accommodation at this Gilwern cottage. Then, head up the oak stairs straight into a large bedroom tucked in the eaves offering flexible sleeping arrangements, this is ideal as a hideaway for a couple or for the children to enjoy peaceful time together. The owners, who live in the main house next to this Gilwern cottage, enjoy the outdoors and have provided a large paddock area with football goals for the young at heart to expend some energy with a game of football, cricket or rounders maybe. Others, however, may prefer to simply sit and watch, soaking up the scenic backdrop of fields and hills. Days out walking and cycling on countryside lanes, up the Sugarloaf Mountain, into the Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) or along the canal will be an absolute delight during your stay at this Gilwern cottage. Play a round of golf, or travel a bit further to explore ancient castles, old mine museums and much more. Visit the nearby market town of Abergavenny to sample local produce all year round, and especially when one of its food festivals are running. A perfect Gilwern cottage in this breathtaking National Park where a holiday will be long remembered by all.
The picturesque village of Gilwern, situated amidst the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park (Brecon Beacons), offers visitors many amenities including traditional pubs, shops and a great fish and chip shop. Covering approximately 520 square miles, the National Park surrounds the village providing excellent walking, cycling and bird watching as well as great salmon and trout fishing on the river Usk. Abergavenny, the aptly named Gateway to Wales is nestled in the nearby hills and has something for everyone. With its many indoor and outdoor markets, magnificent castle and museums this medieval market town is sure to delight any visitor. Offering fantastic walks for all abilities as well as its own vineyard, the nearby mountain of Sugarloaf is well worth visiting. No matter what time of year, this wonderful little village has something in the area to suit all tastes and budgets.

‘The photos do not do the living room justice; it is super bright and airy. The kitchen is well equipped and the sofa and beds are really comfortable. The garden area is large, well-maintained and there was a basketball hoop and a football and rugby ball in the garden for anyone visiting to use. It was well situated for trips to Abergavenny, Crickhowell, Skenfrith castle and there were nice local walks too. The sky at night was beautiful too with great views of all the stars. The owners were so friendly and concerned to make sure we had a good time. I'd happily stay here again:).’

‘Four of us stayed for two nights in the Riverside Barn, we had a fitness event in Crickhowell and the location was perfect being just 10 minutes drive away. Prior to arriving we received full instructions on access to the property, our arrival was smooth and a very easy process. The owner came to introduce himself, showed us around and gave us advice on places to eat and the local area. He was so friendly and said if we needed anything just ask. The barn was very clean, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend and would visit again.’

‘We arrived on Friday afternoon, previously given full information on how to find the farm and enter the barn. All good. The setting for the barn is idyllic, very close to the main farmhouse and with beautiful trees and fields to the rear of the barn. The barn itself is openplan, kitchen lounge and dining room all in one high vaulted room. I believe it was the dairy. Everything is furnished and accessorised to a high standard. There are 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and a small games room downstairs. Upstairs via quite a steep staircase is a huge room with twin beds. All very comfortable. Simon, our host came to check we were all settled in, and then kindly found us a bigger pan from the house to cook our chilli for dinner. He also showed us a summer house by the patio with extra fridge and freezer space. Gilwern is between Crick Howell and Abergavenny and we visited both towns during our stay. lovely independent shops. These are NOT complaints but just points to note. One bedroon has only a stable door with a window. this has no curtain. Dawn was early in June and the light flooded the bedroom. I used an eyemask the second night - all good. Sitting outside for most of our meals and chatting we got bitten by little flies. It happens, its the countryside! But have some repellent if it bothers you. To make this place perfection, another toilet would have been useful and with 5 of us it needed planning to shower and get out in the morning. the barn has only 1 bathroom. We are all thinking of returning to this lovely place.’

‘The location was beautiful, especially at this time of year (early May) with the surrounding fields full of wild flowers, the river close by and a back drop of hills/mountains. We had a long weekend and enjoed local walks around the farm and the more strenous 4 waterfalls walk in the Brecon Beacons, which were stunning. We also managed to fit in a trip into Abergavenny (we didn't have to hope the weather was fine - it was glorious!) and we had a lovely meal in the Bear Hotel, in the picturesque town of Crickhowell. The cottage had absolutely everything you could need and the owners could not have been more helpful. I would certainly return - so much we didn't have time to fit in. Really worth the trip.’

‘We have been told by the owners that they would be around to greet us and that the barn would be open, but when we arrived at the property in the dark and cold aroudn 5 pm no one was around, the doors were locked and no one could be reached on any of the phone numbers we had. We had repeadetly tried to access the property and tried to reach the owners and finally gave up and left at around 9 pm. I find it horrifiying that anyone would leave a young family in the cold and dark for so long. We finally received a text with the key location at 0.40 am. I have no idea what the owners have been thinking that we would still hang around this late. For a first trip with our 4 month old, it could not have been a more horrible experience. Good that she won't be able to remember!’

‘This is a fantastic open-plan cottage that has lovely furnishings. The kitchen is very well equipped and the owner starts you off with a pint of milk, tea, coffee sugar and a cake. There are also fresh flowers in the room. The three bedrooms, 2 doubles and a twin room upstairs, offer very comfortable beds and the location is great for getting around to enjoy the sites in South Wales. A car is necessary but the parking is free and secure. Very quiet, beautifully furnished and excellent service from the owner, who is on hand if you need them but are also happy to leave you alone to enjoy your break. Would definitely recommend and will come back. The WiFi is also very good.’
