Getting around

Car is the easiest way to get about, with most of the key sights within half an hour's drive If you're fit enough to cycle up the hill to Porth-y-Parc, a bike would also be ideal - but remember this is a VERY hilly area! Guests without private transport usually arrive by train (Abergavenny Station) and then either get a taxi up to us (10 minutes, about £5) or walk (40 minutes, with a long climb over the last mile and a half). Once here, if you like walking, you don't need a car, as fabulous walks start from your door, with lovely pub / eating options attached. Supermarket deliveries are easily organised

Interaction with guest

When you arrive at The Old Barn, the keys will be in the door so you can let yourselves in and feel at home straight away. We live on site (but not overlooking you), and are here to help in any way we can, but we will never intrude on your privacy - we will quite simply be as hands on or hands off as you want us to be!

Very Good

“Very nice cottage”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2017

We enjoyed our stay, the living area is lovely and there were some nice goodies left for us, including lovely eggs. We visited with friends who had the bedrooms in the main barn, whilst we had the en suite room, but we had to go outside to get to it and it seemed rather dark and miserable. As there were children with us, it would have been nice to have a TV though we appreciate that a lot of people may prefer the 'get away from it all' approach

Owner's reply: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. What a shame that you found your room a bit gloomy. Most people love that room for its wonderful view of Sugar Loaf. Being such an old building, and within the National Park, planning regulations would not allow extra windows. We do hope you will visit again.

“Lovely place, lovely location”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2017

We've just returned from our stay at The Old Barn. We wanted to find somewhere close to Sugarloaf Barn as we had a wedding there. The location for this purpose was excellent; we couldn't have found a closer, nicer place. The scenery around the barn was lovely and the extra touches that Roz and Pip gave to our stay were lovely. Overall, a great stay and we'd definitely come again!!

“Fabulous cottage and setting”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2017

Whole family were so impressed by the accommodation. This is a beautifally converted barn keeping original features such as wooden beams. stone walls etc. It is spacious, comfortable and very nicely decorated, well equipped and eco friendly . Great outdoor space front and back for relaxing, eating and BBQing - with views over woods and sugar loaf hill, which has immediate walking path access too. Also loved the old shed with TT table - was used daily by us all. Cake and wine on arrival was a really nice touch. Great location for mountain biking at Bike Park Wales, Black Mountain, and Forest of Dean and also for finding own trails. Would go back again.

“Fabulous house in stunning setting.”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2017

We rented this lovely barn conversion to celebrate a significant birthday with friends. We could not have had a more perfect place to stay or better surrounds. (we were exceptionally lucky with the weather too) With access to the footpath to the Sugar loaf from our back door, some serious cycling in the black mountains, wild swimming, we felt very spoilt. We very much enjoyed our meal at the Walnut Tree and the lamb supplied by Pip and Ros was delicious. We would certainly like to return and would recommend this house to anyone looking for a comfortable getaway stay.

“Amazing Barn in just the a beautiful setting.”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2014

We booked this three bedroom Barn for three nights when we went to a Wedding. It worked out a lot cheaper than buying three rooms for three nights at the local hotel and was a great move. It is in a perfect rural spot and a taxi from the town cost just £5!(this was after midnight as well.) The Barn has been built to a very high spec. You have everything you could possibly need. The views from the barn are truly breath taking and although the weather wasn't very nice we did see snow falling on top of the mountain. The fresh eggs and a bottle of wine were very welcoming and we all enjoyed the homemade cake that was left for us on arrival. If we are ever in South Wales again we will definitely be staying here !!

“Peaceful, tranquil and fresh”

Reviewed 25 Mar 2013

What a wonderful setting. Close enough to Abergavenny, yet far enough away from the town to really feel the benefits of quiet rural tranquility. Easy acres to the hills which afforded splendid views towards the Bristol channel in the south and the Brecons to the north. The accommodation was excellent and easily accommodated the six people in our group. Very relaxing. Thank you.

“Inside and out, and round about, the loveliest place imaginable to stay”

Reviewed 22 Mar 2013

I struggled to find anything negative to say about Porth-y-Parc, and gave it up as a bad job! The Old Barn is wonderfully decorated, furnished and equipped;such attention paid to every little detail, so spacious, well-lit and comfortable. Whatever you might have planned in the way of walking, riding or trips out, nearby or further afield, you find yourself wishing for at least one day of driving rain to keep you within doors with no option but to luxuriate in the place! But when you do step out, the country round about is beautiful, whether you're rambling through the woods and fields close by, or atop the Sugar Loaf, no more than an hour's walk away, with spectacular views in all directions. Abergavenny is near enough to drive into - or walk down the long hill to - but not so near as to intrude upon the rural character of the place. As if all this were not enough, the owners, who live in the house a mere step away, are friendly and hospitable, and have obviously worked very hard indeed, with skill, taste and energy, to provide a holiday experience of the very highest quality for their guests. We shall be going again and again.
