Dogs are welcome and love it here - they bring their owners back regularly to walk up onto the Sugar Loaf directly from the cottage. The farm backs onto the oak woodland and open moorland of the Sugar Loaf, allowing you to walk and explore the magnificent views and countryside, leaving your car safely parked on the yard. 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. Places of interest in the area inclu...
Getting around
Abergavenny has a mainline railway station and there are buses that go from the bus station to Brecon,Cardiff and the Valleys. We have no local buses coming our way but the Sustrans cycle route goes past the end of the road below us. There are multiple taxi companies in Abergavenny who come up here regularly. The Brecon Beacons National Park Authority runs a bus service further into the park on Sundays, but this programme changes yearly so needs to be researched further
