Splendid Abergavenny Cottage sleeping up to 11 guests
The two beautiful old barns making up Berry Wood Barn have been lovingly renovated to create a warm, spacious and light family home with the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere.
The barns have taken 4 years to turn into a very comfortable family home. There is underfloor heating throughout and handmade curtains to make the barn cosy in the evenings when the fire is lit.
The barn is set in 3.5 acres of land. There is a flat grass lawn and a trampoline for children to play on.
This is a beautiful property to explore the local area and enjoy activities while being able to relax and unwind in comfortable surroundings.
Berry Wood Barn is one of the most spectacularly positioned houses in the Llantony valley in the Black Mountains.
Perched high on Hatterall Ridge in the Brecon Beacons National Park, the views from the barn are truly breathtaking. Stand at the kitchen window and the valley sweeps away before you towards Hay on Wye.
Although you are in the middle of nowhere with only sheep for neighbours, Abergavenny is only 15 minutes drive away and Hereford is 20 mins.
You can walk directly from the barn or drive a short way to find many fantastic walks.
At Llantony Abbey there is a pony trekking centre where you can do half a day or a whole day riding in the hills. Within 10 minutes drive from the barn there is a riding stables with very good teachers and horses.
There is clay pigeon shooting ten minutes from the barn as well as a shooting school about 45 minutes drive from the barn.
On Hatterall Hill, 5 minutes from the barn, there are Red Kites and many other beautiful birds.
Many people love to jump off the hills around us and hang glide when the wind is blowing in the right direction.
