Location description from owner

The Wales region

Merryfields Barn is located in the Brecon Beacons National Park and only a mile from the beautiful town of Crickhowell and the Black Mountains. Pen-y-fan (the highest mountain in South Wales) is 15 miles away; Wales’ capital city Cardiff and Hereford are both 40 miles; Swansea and the beautiful Gower peninsula are 50 miles away; Bristol, Bath and Cheltenham are all within 65 miles and London is 160 miles away. The nearest major airports are Cardiff, Bristol and Birmingham.

The Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park region is a hidden gem which tourists in the know keep to themselves. There are canals, rivers, lakes and mountains all around and yet Cardiff, Wales' capital city, Hereford, Hay-on-Wye, Bristol, Bath and the beautiful Gower coast are only an hour or so away. For families, there's a nearby mountain railway, a boating lake, fabulous climbing centre and outside zip wire course, several horse riding stables, numerous mountain biking routes, golf, tennis, hang gliding/paragliding, fishing, caving and some of the best walking, for all abilities.

Merryfields Barn is set in a rural location and yet the charming and thriving market town of Crickhowell is only a mile away and there are numerous activities, attractions and sights to see within the surrounding area. The Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal is ¼ mile down the road, with its newly-refurbished paths, narrow boats, kingfishers, bluebells and even a large redwood tree. The River Usk is also within walking distance, flowing through the valley bottom and attracting fishermen, canoeists and walkers alike. The area is also a haven for bird-watchers, with buzzards and red kites regularly flying over the property. There's a 9-hole golf course just down the road and one of the UK's largest cave systems at the nearby Llangattock escarpment. The area is also well known as a 'foodie capital', with many excellent pubs and restaurants and an annual food festival in Abergavenny, 6 miles away.

Llangattock

Merryfields Barn is located in a hilltop hamlet of 20 houses and yet the charming and thriving market town of Crickhowell is only a mile away, with its individual stores, shops, galleries, tennis courts, tourist office and some great restaurants and pubs. Just down the road is a 9-hole golf course and the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, with its newly-refurbished paths, narrow boats, kingfishers, bluebells and even a large redwood tree. At the foot of the hill is Llangattock village, with its 13th century church and attractive, narrow streets.
The River Usk is also within walking distance, flowing through the valley bottom and attracting fishermen, canoeists and walkers alike.

“Outstanding”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2016

Wow is the only word to describe Merryfield's Barn, had a superb week in September. The barn itself was spotless and lots of little touches that show the owners have a real passion in making guests feel very welcome indeed, from the lovely welcome tray with home made fare and vegetables from the owners garden to flowers from the garden. Do not hesitate in booking as you will not be disappointed. We have rented lots of holiday lets over the years and this is very close to the top of the list if not top. Merryfield's is simply stunning and we will no doubt be back at some point in the future. Thanks Steve & Angela for making us so welcome!!! The only fault I could find is there were no scissors in the kitchen!!! This really is how all holiday cottages should be.

Thank you for your lovely comments and we're very pleased you enjoyed your stay in the barn. I don't know what happened to the scissors but we'll get a new pair!

“Fantastic cottage, gorgeous location”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2011

We had a fantastic time at this cottage, really didn't want the week to end. Location & views are amazing. There's so much to do in the surrounding area that we wished we were staying for longer although it just gives us an excuse to return! The cottage itself is beautiful & very clean. Everything was provided that we needed. Cant wait to get back, maybe in the summer next time.
