Cottage
Black Mountains View Cottage is a beautiful cottage situated in the village of Gilwern where The Monmouth and Brecon canal passes through the village with the pretty canal boats. It's a great place to explore the Welsh culture with The World Heritage Site at Blaenavon, The Big Pit, Blorenge Mountain and The Black Mountains and of course the Brecon Beacons National Park. The cottage has many charming features which add character to the property, it has a full fitted kitchen, separate dining room & lounge with a narrow staircase leading to the two double bedrooms....Black Mountains View Cottage is a beautiful cottage situated in the village of Gilwern where The Monmouth and Brecon canal passes through the village with the pretty canal boats.
