What an amazing find, very welcoming hosts who could not do enough for us. The Cottage is very well equipped with log burner and central heating, spotlessly clean! On the edge of the woods convenient for walking and hiking locally or exploring the Brecon Beacons....More

About the neighbourhood
Tyn-y-bryn is only a mile from the market town of Abergavenny. Known as the Gateway to Wales, this historic market town features, amongst other attractions, fat stock and produce markets on Tuesdays and Fridays, a medieval castle, St Mary's priory church which houses the famous Jesse tree and an outstanding collection of tombs - it is known as the Westminster Abbey of Wales - and several attractive parks and gardens.
The surrounding countryside offers a wide range of activities - walking, canoeing, canal boating and sailing, caving, pony trekking, hang-gliding, gliding and several golf courses (including a public course and driving range just over a mile from Tyn-y-bryn), as well as the famous Celtic Manor resort where the 2010 Ryder Cup was played.

Airport: Bristol: 85.0 km
Railway: Abergavenny: 3.5 km
Ferry: Swansea: 78.0 km
On arrival at the big roundabout just outside Abergavenny take the A465 towards Hereford. This road bypasses the town – you need to drive 2.9 miles along until you come to the turning Left for Abergavenny. Drive along this road for 0.7 miles then take the turning on the Right.
Follow this road up the hill and around a right-angled bend then after about 200 yards take the lane that goes up to the Left.
At this stage look up – you will see Tyn-y-bryn in front of you and the cottage is on the left (covered with Virginia creeper if it is summer time). At the T junction go Left and then take the next lane on the Right named Ymyl y Deri/ Deriside which is just after a large white house with blue paintwork.
This is the way to TYN-Y-BRYN.
You have about 450 yards to go. Watch out for our Tyn-...
