    The Old Barn stands on its own at the end of the yard of our 35 acre smallholding, surrounded by fields and National Trust woodland. We have lovingly restored the barn as a stylish and comfortable holiday home using traditional Welsh slate, oak, lime and eco-friendly materials. There is fabulous walking from the doorstep, and further afield in the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons, and outdoor activities such as cycling, riding, kayaking and wild swimming are available locally.

    The Old Barn is an ideal base for events such as the Hay Festival (June) and Abergavenny Food Festival (September). The beaches of the Gower are just over an hour's drive, and the vibrant Welsh capital, Cardiff, is only 50 minutes away.

    Inside the barn is a stylish mix of old and new, with contemporary desi...

We stayed in The Old Barn for a week in July 2014 with my mum, sister and my husband. We absolutely loved it. Location is scenic, it's nice and private, conversion and interior is tasteful and convenient and Roz is the most hospitable host happy to help with our questions. Fresh eggs were absolutely delightful. I wish we could stay... more

We returned to the Old Barn for our third stay in May, this time to attend both the Amlin and Heineken rugby cup finals at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. (Its a 40min direct train from Abergavenny). We bought different friends with us and of course they loved the cottage, the views, the walk up sugar loaf. As ever, a... more
