The cottage is perfectly well equipped, and ideally situated to explore Monmouthshire and South Wales. The views from the cottage itself are wonderful, and to be able to walk to the top of Sugar Loaf from the front door ,without crossing a road, is a great bonus... If you get a chance to spend any time with the hosts in... more

This was a fantastic holiday. The cottage was lovely and quaint. The hosts very accommodating and knowledgeable about the local areas of interest and the views were out of this world. We have 2 young border collies and they loved being able to run free around the 7 acres and for the first time in their young lives we actually... more

How to get there
Airport: Bristol: 0.0 mi
Railway: Abergavenny: 2.2 mi
Ferry: Swansea: 0.0 mi
On arrival at the big roundabout just outside Abergavenny take the A465 towards Hereford. This road bypasses the town – you need to drive 2.9 miles along until you come to the turning Left for Abergavenny. Drive along this road for 0.7 miles then take the turning on the Right.
Follow this road up the hill and around a right-angled bend then after about 200 yards take the lane that goes up to the Left.
At this stage look up – you will see Tyn-y-bryn in front of you and the cottage is on the left (covered with Virginia creeper if it is summer time). At the T junction go Left and then take the next lane on the Right which is just after a large white house with blue paintwork.
This is the way to TYN-Y-BRYN.
You have about 450 yards to go. Watch out for our Tyn-y-bryn signs from here. Tak...
