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.

We have just had a wonderful week. From the moment we arrived with the thoughtful treats left for us, the cottage is in a perfect location to visit many attractions. We didn’t get round everything and would certainly rebook next year. The cottage was ideal...More
We chose the cottage because of the location as we had to visit a friend in Newport. However we are very pleased with the cottage as it provides all the essentials, just like what one would expect at home. It's not very big but cosy...More
Firstly we picked this location because it had parking with the cottage for our car. The property was easy to find, although on the main road it is quiet and you can not hear any traffic that does pass, not really busy at all. We...More
Nice little place for my wife and I, with quality bedding. Lots of cute feminine touches around the house, good value for the money. They put few scones bread, tea and eggs in the fridge for us, fresh flowers on the table, such a pleasant...More
Cozy and very well decorated, Crossroads Cottage was a great stay for us (50-something couple traveling with a 70-something mom). It's immaculately clean and a comfortable place to stay. Well located as a base for our three-day visit to Brecon Beacons, close to Crickhowell, Abergavenney,...More
Despite the communication errors in the beginning of our stay, after we were installed, was everything great.
The house is pretty clear, clean, pleasant to stay and sometimes we come back early to enjoy the late sunset at the deck. The towers are clean, the...More
Nice location for the South of Wales, and very nice "feel" to the place. Practical garage for the car, very nice garden. Also, if you run, close to the canals (=nice and flat).
Some niggles, though. Kitchen seems a bit understocked (could use more/bigger pans,...More
The Brecon Beacons are within easy reach of most parts of the United Kingdom both by car and rail. We are 35 minutes from the M4 motorway linking with London, South Wales and Southern England; 15 minutes from a dual-carriageway connecting with the Midlands and North of England via the M5/M50. Abergavenny railway station is well served by fast and frequent trains between Cardiff, Newport and Shrewsbury, Manchester and North Wales. Good connections can be made at Newport to London Paddington, the Midlands, Bristol and the South of England.
Directions by car
Approaching from the east and south, also from Cardiff and Bridgend:
Take the M4 to Junction 24 and turn northwards onto the A449 towards Monmouth and the Midlands. After approximately 13 miles at Raglan take the exit towards Abergav...
