A cosy retreat set within the banks of the Sugar Loaf Mountain, perfect for two. Enjoy endless walks from the doorstep and plenty of welcoming country pubs nearby.

Surrounded by beautiful gardens that are rich in wildlife, this charming lodge is one of three properties set opposite the owners' home, and simply perfect for exploring the various trails and footpaths that will guide you onto the Sugar Loaf Mountain. Weary from your adventures, the local pub 0.5 miles away has a fine selection of real ales and hearty meals to save you from cooking. The local area is renowned for being popular amongst foodies, with two Michelin-starred restaurants and celebrated gastropubs within 9 miles. If you time your visit to coincide with the Abergavenny Food Festival in September, you’ll be in for a treat.

Accessed via a gently stepped path, the property itself is a cosy retreat that sleeps two guests. The comfortable lounge is bright and spacious with natural light that streams in through the French doors and the room is equipped with a snug sofa and armchair, and a TV/DVD player. There is a spacious kitchen diner where you can enjoy home-cooked meals from the well-equipped kitchen complete with an electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, toaster, and coffee maker. The bedroom is spacious with a super-king-size zip-and-link that can be made into twin beds at the time of booking. And, for total relaxation, you can take advantage of the electric sauna. There is a shower room with a shower and a WC off the bedroom. Shared laundry facilities can be found on-site. The friendly owners can also be approached to ask about the best routes for exploring the area.

Outside, you'll find a sunny terrace with seating, alongside 3.5 acres of attractive gardens and a small area of woodland, home to a few curious pheasants that wander throughout the area. If you want to explore the local area, there is a path to Sugar Loaf Mountain right from the sun terrace.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Beautiful location, very hilly so need to be fairly fit for walks from cottage. Pub in village not open much. Could hear the people in the above cottage moving around a lot.

The lodge is in a beautiful, magical location with lovely views from the gardens. It is very nicely furnished and well equipped, with outside seating on a small terrace. It is attached to the owners' property next door and they are very helpful but do not impose on your privacy. The car park is reached by a fairly steep slope but it is possible to Read morepark by the lodge if necessary. The spotty pigs and pygmy goats in the neighbouring fields add charm to the lovely setting. Hide

The lodge is comfortable and extremely spacious, set in beautiful gardens, in a lovely part of the country. I loved looking at the cute pigs and goats in the field. I would just warn anyone who is not an early riser and/or is a light sleeper (I am both.), that the other two lodges are above this one, and you may be woken up by noisy residents.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Home to three national parks, three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Britain's smallest city, Wales is a wonderful destination for a staycation in the UK. Bordered by golden sands and surf-battered cliffs, and filled with dramatic peaks and valleys, this beautiful country is a real magnet for those who love the outdoors.

Climbing, hiking, mountain biking and wildlife watching are just a few of the activities on offer during holidays in Wales. And then there are the castles, over 600 to be exact, so you could visit a different one every day for a year and still not see them all! Add to this a string of award-winning beaches, cosmopolitan shopping cities like Cardiff and Swansea, as well as a host of thrilling attractions, and it's easy to see why Wales is so special.

North Wales

Surrounded on three sides by water, with the enchanting Isle of Anglesey at its rugged tip, North Wales offers an incredible base for your break. Head to the Llyn Peninsula to reveal sandy shorelines and secluded surf breaks, or enjoy a bucket and spade day out at a traditional seaside resort, such as Llandudno, Barmouth or Abersoch.

Further inland, you’ll find the Snowdonia National Park, home to one of the biggest reasons to visit North Wales, if not the highest, Mount Snowdon - easily accessible thanks to a train ride. North Wales is packed full of rich heritage too, with the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Harlech, Caernarfon and Conwy Castles, and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal.

South Wales

From the lakes, waterfalls and mountains of the Brecon Beacons National Park through to the winding rivers of the Wye Valley and the breathtaking beaches of the Gower Peninsula Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, South Wales is a feast for the eyes. Tread the Wales Coast Path for epic views over turquoise seas, explore the Glamorgan Heritage Coast which includes the pristine sands of Rhossili Bay, or try some water sports at Mumbles on Swansea Bay.

If you fancy a challenge, see if you can reach the summit of mighty Pen y Fan, or delve deep underground and uncover the secrets of Dan yr Ogof cave. And that’s before we even mention the beauty spots of Llangorse Lake, the Fforest Fawr UNESCO Global Geopark and Llanthony Valley.

West Wales

Encompassing the counties of Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire, as well as the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, West Wales is a spectacular peninsula. If you’re looking to spot dolphins, seals and puffins, and experience some of the cleanest waters in the country, then this is the place.

Wander the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, hop aboard a boat trip to the wildlife sanctuaries of Ramsey, Skomer or Skokholm Islands, or visit the Cistercian monks of Caldey Island. For a beach day, lounge on the soft sands of Barafundle Bay or stroll through the charming streets of Tenby, Laugharne or St Davids. And after all that sea air, venture inland for a hike in the Cambrian Mountains, the Brechfa Forest, or the Towy Valley.
