The Barn has been renovated 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. We have recently installed an eco charger for electric vehicles.
The Barn consists of two self catering cottages, and all the bedrooms are en-suite. They can be booked as one property.
Stables sleeps 4 people in a twin and a double bedroom, both en-suite. You have your own kitchen/living room. It is all on the ground floor with french windows to garden and patio area with barbecue.
Loft sleeps 4 to 6 people in a twin bedroom and a family room. With its own kitchen/living room there are wonderful views from all windows. Set over two floors there is also a cloakroom in the hall. Patio and garden with barbecue.
Prices are all inclusive of heating and electricity and linen and towels. We provide a welcome pack of local produce.
Both apartments have Freeview digital TV and wifi, and share a utility room with washing machine and dryer and separate freezer.
There is also a drying room for wet weather gear and secure storage for equipment.
Dogs are welcome.
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.
