Local Area

This Cottage is joined to some farm outbuildings but is detached from the main farmhouse that is located across the cobbled courtyard. The nearset pub is only 10 mins away and dates back to the 18th Century. It is a traditional country pub with great food and specialist cask ales. The nearest shop is only 1 mile away in the village of Goytre, whilst Abergavenny is only 7 miles away (10 mins by car) and has plenty of shops selling great local produce and also supermarkets. The town of Pontypool with its rich industrial heritage is only 4 miles to the south. Goytre Wharf is only half a mile form the cottage and here you can hire boats on the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. The Canal is considered by many to be Britain's most picturesque canal and also has great walking along its towpath.

The Brecon Beacons National Park covers 520 square miles of landscape that includes mountains, waterfalls, rivers and canals and is an ideal natural playground for walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing and also star gazing (officially a Dark Sky Reserve due to outstanding quality of the night sky). Pen y Fan is the highest mountain in the range at 886 meters and is a popular walk. Other notable mountains and great for walking are Skirid and the Sugar Loaf.

Big Pit mining museum and World Heritage site at Blaenavon is 10 miles away and offers a great insight into the heritage of South Wales and is well worth a visit. The museum includes an underground tour of the old mine shafts and really gives you an honest perspective of what life was like for the tens of thousands of men that worked in these harsh conditions.

The surrounding area also has many other attractions that are worth a visit including Raglan Castle, Tredegar House (National Trust Property), Tintern Abbey, Wye Valley, Vale of Usk and Caerleon Roman Fortress. For sports events or for some retail therapy then Cardiff is only 20 miles away.

This area is a 'food lovers' paradise as there are several famous restaurants including both the Hardwick and The Walnut Tree in Abergavenny. The Abergavenny Food festival is also a popular annual event.
