Dog friendly eco barn conversion sleeping 8 for family holidays and weekends exploring the Brecon Beacons

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Old Rectory Barn, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, sleeps 2-8 in 4 bedrooms.

Old Rectory Barn sleeping 10 is a beautifully renovated stone barn with oak beams which provides spacious and flexible accommodation for family and friends. It is ideal for families or large groups wanting to explore the area.

This comfortable holiday house is situated within the Brecon Beacons National Park yet also close to the hills, rivers, canals and castles of Monmouthshire. The Brecon and Monmouthshire canal is within walking distance. It is also convenient for visiting the Industrial Heritage sites of the South Wales Valleys.

Set in 5 acres there are plenty of local footpaths and we have produced a series of walks from the Barn. You could abandon the car and spend your days walking or cycling and absorbing the fascinating local history, but the whole of south eastern Wales is easily accessible from here, including Cardiff if you feel like a day out in the capital city of Wales.

The Barn is set over 2 floors, known as Loft and Stables. The entrance hall, with cloakroom off, leads to a beamed downstairs kitchen/living room which has French doors leading to the garden. There are 3 ground floor bedrooms (a double and 2 twins); 2 of them have doors leading out to their own patio and both have an en suite shower room. Also off the entrance hall is the other ground floor bedroom, a twin room which has an en suite wet room and is suitable for wheelchair use.

Upstairs is the large lofted family bedroom with an en suite with bath and shower over. There is a Juliet balcony looking over the garden.

Also upstairs, the second spacious lofted living/kitchen room has plenty of comfortable seating and a large extendable dining table.

The Barn has FreeSat TV and WiFi and DVD.
