One of two fantastic properties in a beautiful setting in the Brecon Beacons, with lots to see and do right on your doorstep. A lovingly presented home to return to and relax in at the end of your day.

Perfect as a couples’ getaway or for a family, with up to two of your four-pawed pals, this contemporary henhouse conversion is an oasis of peace and privacy. Located on the cusp of the Brecon Beacons National Park, you can walk out of the door and immerse yourself in nature or relax in the garden and admire the far-reaching views across fields, ponds, and mountains. There are also no stairs to worry about for tired legs after a day of exploring, as the property is across a single storey and equipped with underfloor heating to warm feet and paws.

Through open-plan design and a double height ceiling, the lounge/kitchen/diner is a bright and airy space with ample room for everyone. Comfort is a priority: two leather sofas beckon you to take a seat, while beyond, the beautiful wooden table and benches were made for sociable meals with friends or family. The two cosy bedrooms (king and twin) come complete with their own private en-suites. Bi-fold doors open onto the patio from the dining area, giving you an amazing view of your surroundings. The garden is large and enclosed, providing a fantastic grassy space for your four-legged friends to play while you laze in the hammock.

If it’s an adventure you’re after, you won’t have to look far as there are two mountains popular with walkers within easy reach. Car parking is available at the base of the Skirrid (4 miles) and the Sugar Loaf (7 miles) which are both rated as moderate dog-friendly walks with a few steep climbs. There are also short walks and trails aplenty, perfect for small feet and paws. For shopping and culture head to nearby Abergavenny (4.5 miles), a vibrant market town which hosts a range of festivals and events throughout the year. And with its many dog-friendly cafes, pubs, and inns to choose from, you and your canine companions will be spoilt for choice! Monmouthshire is also steeped in history, so take a day trip to explore White Castle (5 miles) and Grosmont Castle (6.5 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

SLEEPS: There are two bedrooms, one with a king-size bed, the other with two twin beds that can be made as a super-king-size on request.

RELAXING: Electric power, underfloor heating and Wi-Fi is included for your stay.

We had a lovely break away at The Old Henhouse. Everything had been done by the owners to ensure we felt welcomed and safe in the current climate. The location is lovely and the garden was fabulous for the dog.

40 characters or less - hmm. A converted outbuilding (chicken shed?) in a great location. A high level of insulation and underfloor heating - nice!.

Ideal location for people who want peace and quiet, who have dogs maybe, very secure gardens. However, be prepared to drive on narrow lanes (mind you there's a lot of them). We found it fairly easy to navigate to from Hereford not from Abergavenny so I don't know what it's like approaching from motorways.

Beautiful setting with very quiet single track road. Friendly welcome from the owner and his children. Underfloor heating was amazing! Very comfortable furniture and although the shower room in the main bedroom was quite small it was ok for our short break.

Lovely, modern home. Thoroughly enjoyed our new year break here. The garden in the hideaway looks out over beautiful views and enjoys unbroken sun. Our dogs were able to explore the garden without fear of them escaping through any gaps, which was a big bonus!
