Come and enjoy our spectacular views.
These historic, new, spacious holiday houses have been beautifully furnished and are very well equipped set on a farm above the village of Llanigon, in the Black Mountains.
The Meeting House and Bryn Bwthyn are recommended as a fantastic base for exploring the market town of Hay-on-Wye which is only 1.5 miles by road or a 40 min wander over the hill if taking the footpath. It is also perfect for exploring the Black Mountains, The Brecon Beacons and The River Wye Valley.
Hay the ‘Town of Books’ offers hours of interesting browsing. It is a very popular destination for visitors with its many bistro’s, boutiques clothes shops, antiques dealers, galleries and some fascinating independent shops showing crafts and fashionable interiors amongst many other things and of course the many second hand bookshops.
There are excellent pubs and restaurants and probably the best ice cream that you will ever taste in Shepherds Cafe!
The phenomenal views will leave you desperate to explore the area further and it’s beautiful walks from your door. You will be very near to the Offa’s Dyke Path and the National Cycle Sustrans route 42 and route 8.
It’s only a short distance to the Brecon Beacons National Park and the famous Pen y fan mountain for the more adventurous walkers.
Further activities such as: canoeing down the Wye, local trekking centres from where you can go riding in the mountains, an excellent indoor climbing centre with outdoor zip wires, wild swimming, local private hire of indoor swimming pool and Sauna in Hay, hang gliding, paragliding, gliding, rock climbing, abseiling, off-road driving, paint-balling, orienteering and quad-biking can all be arranged on discussion with the owner.
Llangorse lake is nearby and ideal for those who have sailing dinghies or windsurfers.
Local fishing on the Wye or Usk can be arranged if booked in advance.
It is also an easy drive on up to Hay Bluff where there are wild ponies and sheep dotting the hillsides and then over the Gospel Pass to Capel-y-ffin and the Llanthony Valley.
The Gospel Pass itself has been a way through the Vale of Erywas since the time of Iron Age Man and taking the route through the mountains yourself you will be stuck by how little it has changed since those times. It leads down to Llanthony Abbey one of the earliest monasteries founded in Britain. Entry is free but take a little money and treat yourself to a drink from the bar located in the old cellars and then sit in the atmospheric grounds of this 13th century ruin.
Usually Friday to Friday changeover – But very flexible
