The Barn consists of two self catering cottages, and all the bedrooms are en-suite. They can be booked as one property.
The nearest village with shops and pubs that serve food is Gilwern but Crickhowell is only 3 miles away and Abergavenny 5 miles.
The Clydach Gorge is on the doorstep and the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal within walking distance. Blaenavon World Heritage site is an easy drive as are many other areas of interest.
This is wonderful walking country and we have developed a selection of walks of varying difficulty that all start and finish at the Barn. Information about possible day itineraries in the car or by public transport is available for those who are unfamiliar with the area. There are mountain biking routes in the area and many a triathlete has trained on our hills but the canal provides a lovely flat bike ride for all the family.
There is also a drying room for wet weather gear and secure storage for equipment.
The Barn was renovated in 2007, to the highest standard and retains many original features including the oak beams. We have adopted 'green' principles where possible and there is a rainwater harvesting system and solar water heating.
In reaching the Finals of the Wales Business and Sustainability Awards the judges said "Old Rectory Barn is an excellent example of 'Green Tourism' having been beautifully and ethically renovated with its environmental effects a priority". In 2009 we reached the finals of the Environmental Agencies National 'Water Save' Awards and have achieved a GOLD Green Business Tourism Award (GTBS).
