This detached cottage is located in the village of Govilon near Abergavenny and can sleep six people in three bedrooms.

Penrose Cottage is a detached cottage sitting on a hillside in the village of Govilon, just three miles from Abergavenny in the Brecon Beacons. The cottage sleeps six people in three bedrooms (one double with an ensuite, one twin with an ensuite and one single with a pull out bed). The cottage also contains a wet room, a fitted kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area. Outside the cottage is off road parking for two cars and an enclosed lawned garden with outdoor furniture. Set in stunning countryside, Penrose Cottage is an ideal location from which to explore this part of Wales.


The position of the cottage is just amazing. The views across the mountains are breathtaking and the wildlife all around the cottage is fascinating too. The cottage is well laid out and cosy.
Mrs Humphrey

Just returned from a lovely week at Penrose Cottage. Weather improved as the week went on and we had 5 days of sunshine. Just amazing views enhanced by all of the wildlife around the house. On one evening we counted 15 rabbits in the garden as well as squirrels and birds. Cottage is very comfortable and the hosts Keith and Diane do everything they can to make it an enjoyable stay. Again, the disabled person in our party had everything required on the ground floor. We will be back later in the year.

Had a very friendly welcome from the owners of the cottage, they were wonderful people who really made our stay comfortable and provided lots of local knowledge. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Mr Burke

Had a warm welcome, and the peace of mind that the owner was nearby. Liked countryside living, the views and walks of the mountains, the sheep and horses to feed in the garden, wet puddles to splash in, and the streams, rivers and waterfalls to see and touch. Such a relaxing comfortable holiday.
Mrs Hussian

Absolutely fantastic all round, lovely delightful Cottage, fabulous host, really couldn't have asked for more. Everything was exactly as stated on your web site, in fact, it exceeded all our expectations. Will definitely recommend to my friends and family and will be booking again in the summer. Thank you for an awesome holiday.
