Just 10 minutes by car from Abergavenny but a peaceful country retreat.
Simple, modern log cabin with open plan sitting/kitchen/dining with double sofa bed & a double bedroom and bathroom. Away from it all: 50 metres from the farmhouse, away from the road and screened by trees. There are board games, books, toys etc.
Garden furniture for sitting out. Farm to wander over. Animals to see. Good places to eat out. Walking in the hills.
The cabin is in the back garden screened by trees from the house. It looks out over fields and gardens.
There is one bedroom with a double bed and a sofa that turns into a good size double in the main living space. The kitchen has a fridge, kettle, toaster, small oven/grill, two ring induction hob (new in response to guest feedback). Lots of bowls, pans, plates, cups etc. Please ask if you need anything else. We provide tea, coffee, sugar and a few cooking things like mixed herbs, salt and pepper.
In the bedroom is a full length mirror, hair dryer, iron, lots of hooks for hanging clothes up and some shelves. The bathroom has shower, toilet and basin and a heated towel rail. We provide towels.
A travel cot and a high chair are available.
The accommodation may suit a couple, a couple with one or two children, or two couples.
Wi-Fi is available in the conservatory in the farmhouse or it can be accessed from outside when its warmer. Mobile phone signals are erratic--some people get much better reception than others.
The thick pine wood walls offer excellent insulation. Electric heating and electric blanket are available if needed so the cabin can be used all year.
Guests have the whole space and their own front door. Access is via a short path near a barn with parking. You are welcome to walk over our 70 acres and current farming activities will decide which fields can be safely accessed. There is some private outside space for your use and the lawn is shared with us. You can use the traditional swing and home built climbing frame next to the cabin but you do so at your 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.
We provide facilities for recycling and we encourage guests to recycle as much as possible.
We like guests to leave the cabin as they found it.
We will accept well behaved pets but do not want them left alone and whining or barking in the cabin while you go out.
