Where you’ll be

Gilwern, Wales, United Kingdom

Perfect location for walking, in the Brecon Beacons National Park - a dark sky reserve. We are:
• minutes from the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal - brilliant for walking, cycling, boating, etc.
• 10 mins drive from the historic market town of Abergavenny and
• 15 mins from the pretty and convivial Crickhowell.

There are good local shops, post office and pubs within walking distance in Gilwern village.
There are a range of supermarkets and shops in Abergavenny, the closest is Waitrose about 10 mins away.

Crickhowell won 'Britain’s best high street 2018' and is 15 mins from the barn in the opposite direction to Abergavenny. There are lovely local shops and really nice pubs. Our favourite is The Bear, and the Dragon has a great family garden.

I designed and converted this old Barn in 2016 where I live part time. My son in law currently works on site in his studio and he and my daughter are 5 minutes away in case of emergency. Please contact me if you have any questions. Simon
