Rectory Cottage is a newly converted, 2 bedroom self-catering cottage adjoining the well-established 18th Century Old Rectory Bed & Breakfast. The cottage has a private patio area with seating, BBQ and wok firepit. Bed and Breakfast basis is available whilst staying at Rectory Cottage, please enquire.

We pride ourselves in ensuring that you have a relaxed and enjoyable stay; you will be provided with a welcome pack on arrival including bread, milk and our own eggs. Children are free to use the trampoline and other toys in the secure back garden adjoining the cottage patio; egg collecting is also encouraged! We supply age appropriate toys and books for those rainy days.

Local pubs, including the well-known Clytha Arms, provide excellent pub food.

The Powys/Brecon Beacons region

Situated 600ft from the River Usk, making it a great spot for fishing or equally perfect for a picnic on its banks.

The cottage is well positioned for exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park and Black Mountains in one direction, or The Forest of Dean and Wye Valley in the other, with Cardiff less than an hour away.


Secluded it may be, but we're only a few minutes drive from the bustling market town of Abergavenny (the self-proclaimed 'Gateway to Wales') and the historic town of Monmouth.

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Old Rectory couple of weeks ago, and what can I say it was brilliant. It was just what we wanted peaceful, tranquil and the scenery was just beautiful.
Kate the owner, was very accommodating, everything that we needed was in the cottage.
Town was a 10min drive which had an Aldi and then small small shops.
Overall it was great, and we would definitely go back again.
Thanks Kate!!

Thank you for your lovely comments. We hope to see you again soon!
