Location description from owner

The South Wales region

Our self-catering holiday cottage is situated on the eastern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Not only is the scenery in this part of Wales outstanding, but there is so much to see and do. The area is full of historic nooks and crannies; castles and ancient churches abound as well as evidence of Wales's industrial heritage.

Monmouthshire is particularly rich in castles - more per square mile than anywhere else in Wales - so you can get a feel for our history by visiting Raglan, Skenfrith, White Castle and Grosmont Castle. The churches of St Mary's in Abergavenny with its carved Jesse Tree, the crooked St Martin's at Cwmyoy clinging to the mountain, the remote St Iussi's at Partrishow with its powerful wall paintings, and the mysterious ruins of Llanthony Priory, are all wonderfully atmospheric places to visit.

The industrial sites of the Big Pit and the 18th Century ironworks at Blaenavon give a real insight into the driving forces of Britain's Industrial Revolution. Both have recently been awarded 'World Heritage' status.

The canals and tramways around the magnificent Clydach Gorge were built to link rural Abergavenny to the industrial South Wales Valleys. Many are now excellent walkways worth following.

Experience the countryside by walking the hills and valleys. There are memorable walks along the Wye Valley and also the high ridge of Offa's Dyke path with outstanding views out over England or westwards into the Black Mountains. A huge number of lesser footpaths also criss-cross the area. A more challenging day would be to walk the length of the ridges of the Black Mountains or to climb our own Sugar Loaf Mountain. Cyclists can use the Sustrans cycle route 42.

The Brecon Beacons National Park and the surrounding area is also one of the foremost locations for outdoor pursuits and activities in the British Isles. These range from mountain biking, horse riding, pony trekking, hang gliding, paragliding and climbing, to canoeing, caving, raft building... Narrow-boat trips along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal are also available, and guided walks and bike rides from Hay-on-Wye.

Browse or shop in the art galleries, craft and antique shops or the bookshops of Hay-on-Wye.

Remember there are many gardens and nurseries around Abergavenny to visit during the summer, and several private gardens which are open to the public under the National Gardens Scheme.

Abergavenny

Tyn-y-bryn is only a mile from the market town of Abergavenny. Known as the Gateway to Wales, this historic market town features, amongst other attractions, fat stock and produce markets on Tuesdays and Fridays, a medieval castle, St Mary's priory church which houses the famous Jesse tree and an outstanding collection of tombs - it is known as the Westminster Abbey of Wales - and several attractive parks and gardens.

The surrounding countryside offers a wide range of activities - walking, canoeing, canal boating and sailing, caving, pony trekking, hang-gliding, gliding and several golf courses (including a public course and driving range just over a mile from Tyn-y-bryn), as well as the famous Celtic Manor resort where the 2010 Ryder Cup was played.

Places of interest in the area include Llanthony and Tintern Abbeys, the World Heritage Site in Blaenavon which includes the Big Pit Mining Museum (offering underground tours by ex-miners) and the Ironworks, Offa's Dyke and numerous castles and museums.

Nearby Hay-0n-Wye lays claim to the largest second hand bookshop in the world and has a world famous Festival of Literature each year in May. Our farm is actually situated within the Brecon Beacons National Park, which is an area of outstanding natural beauty with waterfalls, lakes and rivers plus many wonderful hills to climb.

There are many excellent pubs and restaurants within easy reach, ranging from nationally renowned eateries such as The Hardwick, The Walnut Tree, The Bell at Skenfrith and The Bear at Crickhowell to good value traditional pubs, including our local pub The Crown Inn which is just one mile away and serves excellent food.

Easy access to the M4, M50 and M5 motorways, together with convenient rail links and the outstanding beauty of the Black Mountains make this an ideal holiday location.

We offer excellent access to DARK SKIES for all those of you interested in star watching - we suffer little from light pollution and enjoy many evenings reclining outside watching the stars.

Long breaks, or shorter breaks - you can be sure of a warm welcome and traditional hospitality at Tyn-y-bryn. Join us at "The house on the hill" above Abergavenny, the Gateway to Wales.

“Superb week”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2013

Wow! is all we keep saying...we had a great holiday, a week at the beginning of June 2013 staying in Shepherds cottage. which was cosy and homely with everything you need. The owners are very laid back and make you feel very welcome; nothing is too much trouble. The views and location of Shepherds Cottage are fantastic; it's close to Abergavenny town, and a good place to travel from for your sightseeing trips out, but is situated up on the hill in the peace and quiet. It was great to find somewhere that we could just open the door and let the dogs run without out them coming to harm and just let them enjoy themselves in the fields surrounding the property before we took them out for walks to LLagorse lake and up the Sugar loaf at the back of the cottage, (which took us about 2 hours ish to get to the top. The Waterfall Walks a well worth as visit too. We would strongly recommend this a cottage and location... we have booked to go back again next year.
