The space

The Bakehouse is a unique, quirky cottage.
The kitchen is very well equipped with a full size electric stove, small dishwasher, fridge freezer and washing machine. There's lots of pans and bowls, cups and plates, glasses etc. Please ask us for anything you need extra. We provide salt, pepper, sugar and mixed herbs as well as tea and coffee. In the cupboard in the kitchen under the stairs is an ironing board and iron as well as the main waste bin and cleaning materials.
There’s a bookshelf on the stairs with books, games, puzzles etc.
The bathroom has a bath with shower over, basin and toilet. We provide towels.
In the big bedroom, there’s a cupboard and hooks for clothes and a veneered chest of drawers which stands next to a modern table and wicker chair. A hairdryer is provided.
The cottage is snug and easy to heat in winter with central heating as well as a wood burning stove. And when the sun comes out, it catches the light and warmth through the south facing windows all along one side.
Outside there's a garden bench and garden tables and chairs on the south facing terrace.
By the front door, there's a porch with storage space for shoes and coats plus. Although right next to the main house, the Bakehouse is completely separate and you can have as much or as little contact with us as you want.

Guest access

The cottage is at right angles to the main farmhouse and to enter the front door you cross a shared courtyard. If you prefer you can enter the cottage via the rear door to the conservatory.
There is ample parking in front of the house.

You are welcome to walk over our 70 acres and we will advise on which fields have animals in and are best avoided. You can also access the farmhouse back garden where there is a traditional swing and home built climbing frame (which people use at their own risk -- these are not tested to playground standards).

Interaction with guests

We enjoy talking with guests about organic farming and about the local area etc. We can offer recommendations about walks in the hills (maps available) and where to eat and visit locally. We are situated strategically half way between the Walnut Tree (1 Michelin star) and the Hardwick restaurants. We can recommend other, less expensive restaurants and pubs locally too. We are two of the founders of the Abergavenny Food Festival and have a particular interest in food.

Other things to note

We accept well behaved dogs but they need to be under control outside at all times as the ducks wander everywhere and there are often lambs and sheep in the orchard or paddocks near the house. We don't want dogs left on their own to whine or bark while their owners go out for long periods, We have a boisterous young dog ourselves and two outdoor barn cats have adopted us and are usually around.

Tessa made us very welcome and we had a great time in the beautiful Welsh countryside. It was wet weather but we were cosy next to the lovely log fire! Amazing location, close to nature and a great break from the city.

My family loved our stay at Tessa's. It was very bright, clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. My kids especially loved the animals and the board games that were there to play in the evenings. I would recommend this lovely cottage.

Thanks for a lovely stay!! What a great home you have in a beautiful area. We loved hearing the cows, the stream flowing and those happy ducks wandering around. We loved cooking and relaxing downstairs by the log fire! A great place with a little one. Our 15month old loved seeing all the animals, especially the cat with the amazing purr. She loved the toys provided, the stairs to climb and lovely big bedroom to play in whilst we sat in the big comfy bed. Great for exploring the Brecons. You are out in the countryside but very close to Abergavenny. Great cottage, lovely hosts, peaceful and great location! Thanks Hanna , Rick and Eva. X

We didn't actually stay with Tessa as shevery kindly informed us of a road closure which would have severely impacted our stay prior to arrival. She went beyond her duty to facilitate another place close by for us. All communication with her was excellent and when we return to the area we are looking forward to staying with her.
