Our three two bedroomed cottages are Ideal for walkers, offering walks on the working farm, or for the more adventurous, a bracing walk up the side of Twmbarlwm mountain, or perhaps a stroll along the close-by network of canals.

Cyclists will enjoy rides along the canal and network 47 cycle route. Cwmcarn Mountain bike trail is within 10 minutes ride from the cottages. All this tranquillity yet close to the cities of Newport and Cardiff. Both offering culture, sporting activities, fantastic shopping opportunities and great days out.

Superb accommodation for up to 4 people per cottage for all needs including a wheelchair accessible cottage.

One cottage will also accept a well-behaved dog by prior arrangement and a small additional fee.

All three, two bedroomed cottages are broadband enabled.
