This semi-detached barn conversion is on a working farm in Llanddewi Skirrid near Abergavenny, and sleeps up to four people in one bedroom plus a sofabed in the living room.

The Byre is set on the owners' working farm in Llanddewi Skirrid, 3 miles from Abergavenny, close to the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Black Mountains. This lovely cottage has a lower ground floor double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. Upstairs, yet still on the 'ground floor', is an open plan living area with underfloor heating and a well-equipped kitchen, sitting area and dining area. Outside can be found off road parking and a patio with furniture. With plenty of walks, cycle trails, castles, villages, tearooms and glorious countryside, The Byre is as suited to walkers and intrepid out-doors types as it is couples in search of a romantic escape.


Lovely property but not five star
When I saw all the five star reviews I expected something really special and in some ways it was. The Byre is basically a lovely cottage. Tastefully converted with quality furniture and well equipped with lots of running hot water. Although superficially clean, when we arrived my husband spent at least half an hour clearing away countless numbers of spiders and cobwebs from the bedroom and bathroom - a bit off putting at the start of a holiday. Also the outside seating area needed a spruce up - the furniture needed cleaning and there was litter (my husband picked up an empty Pringles box that looked as though it had been there for ages). Not very welcoming. The Wi-Fi was very slow - we could just about stream audio with some breakup but nothing more - probably little the owners could do about it - however I think this should be pointed before booking.

A very restful property. The location was excellent for all the attractions of Abergavenny and the surrounding area.
Mr Walker

Excellent accommodation in a quiet location. The cottage is finished beautifully and is very well equipped. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.
Mr Rickards

Location and facilities were perfect for our needs.
Mrs Baldwin

Really enjoyed the cottage. Cottage was very clean and immaculately presented. Location was quiet with good amenities near by which was what we were after.
