    Riverside Barn sleeping up to 6 guests

    Set in a village location in the Brecon Beacons National Park, 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 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 Brecon Beacons National Park, 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.

    Mrs Powell – 1 Sep 2018
    "Lovely location - we walked into Abergavenny which was a little bit of road walking followed by miles of amazing scenery along the river."
    Mr Kurver – 1 Jul 2018
    "The cottage was great, it was nice and clean, only downside was the low ceiling in the bathroom which ment I could not shower standing upright but that is the only downside of this cottage."

    "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."
    A Holiday Lettings verified reviewer – 1 May 2018
    "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."
    Mr Dew – 1 Mar 2018

    Mr harwood – 1 Nov 2017
    "Your use of homeaway lead generator/SEO was extremely detrimental to the booking experience. I was livid to learn that they had charged me £30 purely for the lead generation and not made the booking as expected, causing me to have to repeat the whole process with less time to spare and causing more stress. If I had more time to spare prior to the holiday I would have walked away and would have lost the booking, all good will and any future bookings. Only my time constraint caused me to call and the helpful staff working on Sunday turned it around enough to retain the booking. You are doing yourself a great disservice with your business relationship with Homeaway. I can't recommend strongly enough that you end it and just do a bit of SEO work on your own behalf. Without Homeaway I should still have found the property via the website as it fit my criteria and there aren't that many which did. As it was, the booking process generated a lot of unnecessary stress and left a bad tase in the mouth."

    "The cottage was modern and comfortable and the location was ideal, with high-quality equipment, furnishings and bedding. There was plenty of space inside and out for us to relax in. We arrived to find flowers, milk and Welsh cakes waiting for us. The owner was helpful when we needed an extension lead and suggested places to eat locally. Along with the beautiful weather, all of this contributed to a relaxing holiday. Thank you!"

    "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."
    Mr Robert Hughes, Tonypandy,
