Garage space is available if required although there is ample parking space adjacent to the cottage. In the garden a summer house and barbecue are available for guests use.
There is approximately 4 acres of lawned garden with croquet available for guests to enjoy together with various seating areas from which to picnic and enjoy the views of the surrounding countryside and mountains, also an orchard from which guests may pick fruits in their season.
Rent includes all charges including electricity etc there are no hidden extras.
Vital consumable items which can often be forgotten such as toiletries and some kitchen items are available for guests use on arrival but we would appreciate it if these items are replaced as necessary prior to leaving.
With just one bedroom with kingsize double and one single bed the cottage is ideal for two adults but one child is easily accommodated and /or any variation of families with up to two children at a squeeze.
Although fenced the cottage boundary is not totally secure and the surrounding fields are usually grazed by sheep therefore we advise that unless dogs are very obedient and unlikely to take any interest in our woolly neighbours for their own safety they be kept on a lead.
The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
The Brecon Beacons National Park is a mountainous region of outstaning natural beaty where walkers from all over the world come to walk the hills and vales, the cottage is in front of the Blorenge Mountain (popular for hang gliders) and looks directly on to the Sugar Loaf Mountain.
The Brecon and Monmouthshire canal winds along the Usk valley within 300 metres of the cottage.
Vineyard and wine tasting available on the Sugar Loaf. We are only a couple of miles from the town of Abergavenny and near the villages of Govilon, Gilwern and Crickhowell.
We are fortunate to have a Waitrose supermarket on the outskirts of Abergavenny, less than 5 minutes from the Cottage.
Being on the Eastern side of the brecon Beacons results in much drier weather in the Abergavenny area than in the Beacons themselves.
Abergavenny and the local area host various festivals such as the Abergavenny Food Festival in September, Steam Rally in May, week long Cycling Festival in July (Becky James world champion from Abergavenny), Abergavenny Shire horse Show in July and the famed Abergavennyood Food Festival in September to name but a few.
We are near to the World Heritage Site of Blaenavon and the adjacent Big Pit museum where you can be taken underground in the original winding gear lifts
Abergavenny is a busy but unruffled Market Town with lots of interesting shops, pubs and local eateries, famous for its food festival in September and 14 miles from the Cathedral town of Brecon with its annual jazz festival in August. Local restaurants include the nationally acclaimed Walnut Tree whose co-owner Shaun Hill ran the Merchant House Restaurant (won a few gongs) in Ludlow up to early 2005, the Hardwick owned by Stephen Terry of TV fame and the Angel Hotel in Abergavenny which provides the most heavenly afternoon teas.
It is quite possible for you to leave the car on arrival and not use it again until your departure since all the facilities are within easy walking distance for the majority of people. The undulating terrain offeres you splendid views of the surrounding hills and the accommodation looks out to agricultural land that is usually occupied by sheep.
A short distance (5 miles) from the cottage lies Blaenavon, a World Heritage Site with its restored iron works and Big Pit, now a museum offering free trips underground via original winding gear. Continuing the underground theme the cottage is surrounded by some of the best potholing in the UK from Llangatock to the Blorenge with over 130 miles of caves in the immediate area.
The capital city, Cardiff is just 30 miles away with its fascinating castle, bay quarter, millenium stadium and modern shopping malls.
There are numerous walks that can be started within 300 yards of the house. For example, as you approach along the drive you will cross over the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal now frequented by longboats and other leisure craft and providing a tree lined towpath to both left and right. In either direction you soon arrive at watering holes offering food and a warm welcome. Starting a little closer to the house and leading from the drive is a footpath accross the fields leading to the recently completed cycleway/footpath which follows the old tramway which to the right winds up the nearby Tilla Hill and to the left leading into Abergavenny.
The 2010 Ryder Cup course at the Celtic Manor Resort is less than 30 minutes from Govilon.
£30.00 per person per night

A warm but unobtrusive welcome from the owner next door. Despite bad
weather, we enjoyed our stay and found plenty to see in the surrounding area.The cottage had everything we needed and we especially enjoyed the extra large and comfortable bed. Also a great place to stay with a dog.

"Beautiful Brecon Beacons Holiday Let"
This beautiful, self contained cottage is in the heart of the Brecon Beacons, and a great base for some excellent walks. The owners live in the attached house so are close by if needed. The lovely grounds of the house are available to anyone staying in the cottage. The cottage itself is very well appointed with all the necessary luxuries for a great get-away. There are a number of excellent, renowned, restaurants in the area for those who like fine dining.
