Clean and well equipped barn conversion. Renovated to a high standard. Stunning and dramatic views.

  • 5 of 5

This property is located in the middle of a working hill sheep farm. Panoramic views of fields, and mountains; and absolutely no street lights, so brilliant night sky.

The owners of the property own the fields surrounding the property (sheep and welsh ponies) and they are happy for you to walk around them. The steep fields to the rear gives access to the beacon behind the property. Views are absolutely stunning, so very much worth the effort to hike up.

If you are reasonably fit, then the nearest pub The Farmers' Arms is a mile walk; avoiding the main road the back road is steep. Friendly landlord.

A must see attraction is 'The Big Pit' (National Coal Museum). FREE entry with donations requested: worth being reasonably generous if you can afford to be. Groups of 17 are taken on a tour down a shaft for a 50 minute tour. Be warned, you will be bending almost double to walk through some parts and obviously it is uneven and wet underfoot; so not for those with chronic chest complaints or certain mobility restrictions. That said there are other equally interesting areas to see that is suitable to all ages and mobility. The Pithead baths (massive shower complex) has been creatively converted into a museum, which again is excellent. The journey to get there takes in some amazing views as you ascend the mountain and then a family can easily spend a whole day in this one spot; take a picnic or eat reasonable priced in the miners' canteen. The gift shop stocks some unique items; which is a welcome change.

Visit to Brecon to walk along the canal; there are day canal boat trips, or hire your own etc, but you need to book as seemed very popular. The Bank serves some excellent food.

Abergavenny is a very well resource town; with a mix of high street and independent shops. The Flea Market is a good place to test your bargaining skills.
