The Byre Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
The Byre is set on the owners' working farm in Llanddewi Skirrid, 3 miles from Abergavenny, close to the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Black Mountains. This lovely cottage has a lower ground floor double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. Upstairs, yet still on the 'ground floor', is an open plan living area with underfloor heating and a well-equipped kitchen, sitting area and dining area. Outside can be found off road parking and a patio with furniture. With plenty of walks, cycle trails, castles, villages, tearooms and glorious countryside, The Byre is as suited to walkers and intrepid out-doors types as it is couples in search of a romantic escape.

The Welsh hamlet of Llanddewi Skirrid lies amid lovely countryside, 3 miles from Abergavenny, close to the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park. The famous Walnut Tree restaurant can be found here, and more fine dining at The Fox Hunter restaurant is just a short drive away. Walkers will enjoy the variety of trails around the countryside and up Skirrid Mountain, which is the most easterly peak in the Brecon Beacons. Abergavenny has amenities including shops, pubs and tearooms, while the Wye Valley, abbeys and castles can all be found in this beautiful region.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

Really enjoyed the cottage. Cottage was very clean and immaculately presented. Location was quiet with good amenities near by which was what we were after.
Mrs George

This property is in a really lovely part of the Welsh countryside. It is only a couple of hours from our home which is also in the Welsh countryside and as we needed a break from all the building work we are having done it was a perfect hideaway and a very relaxing break.

Mr Bridger

This was a fantastically welcoming cottage with some lovely homely touches and great hosts. The heated floor was brilliant and overall the cottage was top specification and felt like a home from home with everything you'd like to have to hand and much more. Would definitely recommend!
Mr Wilford
May 2015
The accommodation was superb; very clean and well presented. The property was in a fantastic scenic location for exploring South Wales and the Breacon Beacons and there were plenty of leaflets and ideas supplied by the owners. We were made to feel very welcome on the farm and our child had some great interactions with the animals. We would highly recommend stopping at The Byre!!

A beautifully decorated and well appointed farm stay holiday, close to an area of outstanding natural beauty. We will definitely return.
Mrs Rothwell
November 2012
On arrival we were greeted with cake, flowers and milk which were really appreciated. We loved the cottage and loved getting out and about as it had been our first time in Abergavenny. The owner was a lovely lady and we were invited to join their family at their fireworks display. A delightful holiday except too short. Would not hesitate in recommending The Byre.

Comfortable, quiet, lovely and extremely well-equipped cottage. A really helpful owner. Great situation for exploring the area with The Walnut Tree Inn being a nearby bonus. Very reasonably priced let too. Hope to go back one day.
Ms Malinge
November 2011
Thy Byre is a really lovely cottage in a beautiful location near Abergavenny. The owners were very friendly, showed us round and even prepared a gateaux as a 'Welcome Present'!! The cottage inside is nicely decorated, spacy and stylish. As a bonus for gourmets; it is not far from the Michelin Star Restaurant Walnut Tree! We would like to say thank you to the owners; our family had a lovely stay at The Byre and we would definitely recommend it to our friends and family when they come to visit us again!
Mrs Thacker
March 2012
The way the cottage was decorated and furnished was very modern, fresh and clean. The cottage owners were very friendly and welcoming and let us explore the farm with our two year old, which she loved! The perfect weekend, thank you.
Mr Mace

The property is in a very beautiful setting. The owners were wonderful and the area was great, it was very easy to find our way about. Just perfect!

Mr Mrs Arkley
July 2011
Great hosts and a good base from which to tour South Wales. We enjoyed getting out and about but also relaxing at times in and around the property.
Mr Read-Leah
March 2011
Owner provided welcome supplies on arrival - cake, milk, bread etc - which were lovely. The location of the property is ideal for a variety of excellent days out and provides a warm and comfortable base to which to return. It is also very peaceful despite being a working farm.
Mrs Willcocks
June 2011
The lovely accommodation, location, Welsh cakes, dogs, peacocks etc etc. Everything about this accommodation was good quality and it felt like the owners had gone out of their way to make us feel welcome. It is the nicest place we have stayed at.
Mr Farrell
March 2011
We liked everything about The Byre. It was so clean and airy, everything was first class.
May 2013
We had a friendly welcome to a terrific and well equipped cottage. The welcoming cake was a nice touch. It was a good base for seeing the sites and doing a bit of walking for a few days. The representations on the website were accurate. One of the better cottages we have stayed at in the UK on our travels.
January 2014
An October holiday in the Brecon Beacons requires somewhere warm to return to at the end of the day. This property is ideal. It is well furnished, spacious and has free wi-fi. The location is very rural; car ownership is essential. Steps leading to the front door from the parking area would make access difficult for disabled visitors.
September 2016
When I saw all the five star reviews I expected something really special and in some ways it was. The Byre is basically a lovely cottage. Tastefully converted with quality furniture and well equipped with lots of running hot water. Although superficially clean, when we arrived my husband spent at least half an hour clearing away countless numbers of spiders and cobwebs from the bedroom and bathroom - a bit off putting at the start of a holiday. Also the outside seating area needed a spruce up - the furniture needed cleaning and there was litter (my husband picked up an empty Pringles box that looked as though it had been there for ages). Not very welcoming. The Wi-Fi was very slow - we could just about stream audio with some breakup but nothing more - probably little the owners could do about it - however I think this should be pointed before booking.
May 2011
Our unseasonably warm and sunny week in the Black Mountains was more than equalled by the warm and generous welcome we received at this newly opened property. The cottage itself is well furnished and equipped, and well located for days out by car along the Heads of the Valleys, Black Mountains, and the borderlands along the Wye Valley. The walk up Skirrid Fawr is easily achieved directly from the cottage. There are a couple of very nice restaurants within a short drive from the cottage; but we found we had to go a bit further to find a pub. All this at a very reasonable price - highly recommended!
June 2012
Excellent cottage , very well stocked for 2 people. Very comfy and warm! Would be more tricky for 2 couples as bathroom,, loo an en suite to main bedroom. family very welcoming. Even the peacock displayed his tail fan for us twice in the week.
March 2012
Can not recommend this property highly enough - Great quality of fixtures and fittings and the best equipped kitchen, a couple of amateur cooks could ever wish for. Being set on the farm with Skirrd Mountain in the background made a great base for walking and exploring the best the Brecons have to offer.
Chris and Gail
December 2011
We had a very friendly welcome to a beautifully designed and thoroughly equipped cottage (at a very reasonable price too!), and it proved to be a great base for a week in this gorgeous part of Wales. We enjoyed trips out to nearby abergavenny, Blaenavon, through Golden Valley and on to Talgarth, Hay-on-Wye and Brecon ... but also loved relaxed evenings tucked up in the cottage. As an extra bonus the tiny village has an unpretentious Michelin-starred restaurant, The Walnut Tree, which serves extremely tasty, locally-sourced food. Any downsides? None for us but don't expect a local shop, and watch out for the peacocks! Only hesitation in our recommendation is that we don't want to make this so popular that we can't re-book!
