Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, Southern Wales, Wales
The White House sits at the entrance to our 35 acre organic smallholding on the slopes of Sugar Loaf Mountain in the Brecon Beacons National Park. It is surrounded by fields and National Trust woodland . There are spectacular views in every direction, and footpaths up Sugar Loaf and into the Black Mountains pass through the farm allowing fabulous walking from the doorstep, and further afield in the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons. Outdoor activities such as cycling, riding, kayaking and wild swimming are available locally. Abergavenny is a foodie heaven, with great local produce in shops and the market, and excellent, nationally acclaimed restaurants in town and a few minutes' drive away.

The White House was built in 1970 to provide all the mod cons the old farmhouse then lacked. It is light and bright, with south-facing windo...

A wonderful secluded house that offers everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break. The house is bright, roomy and well equipped, lots of extra bits included, fresh eggs, a lovely cake, a bottle of wine, hand soaps, washing up liquid etc. We often rent cottages and all these extra bits make the experience so much nicer.

The location is perfect for the enjoying the Black Mountains - Sugar Loaf is on the doorstep with the convenience of Abergavenny just down the hill. This is a great family-friendly property with super facilities and stunning views in every direction. Roz (the owner) even let our dog stay. We'll be back next year!

Roz and Pip were wonderful to communicate with from the start. The White House is beautifully set up, we were 2 couples with 2 kids, and the 6 of us fit the house perfectly. It's a lovely little 'farm stay' type venue, very quiet, peaceful and with incredible views. Located right on some walks up Sugar Loaf, and about 3...

About the neighbourhood
Abergavenny is a compact and pretty little town on the River Usk, overlooked by its three mountains – Sugar Loaf, The Blorenge and Skirrid. It bustles with life, especially on markey days and offers quirky independent shops alongside 21st century essentials such as Waitrose, Waterstones and Caffe Nero! <BR><BR>The settlement began life as a fort in Roman times, and went on to prosper thanks to local trades as diverse as wool, flannel making, wig-making and tanning. There is a small museum in the castle.<BR><BR>The Castle Meadows, which meander along the banks of the river, are a haven for wildlife – with a bit of luck you can spot heron, kingfishers and even otters. It is also an extremely popular sheep-free walking spot for local dogs and their owners! Just ov... more
