Located in a quiet valley high in the Black Mountains, this traditional barn conversion makes an ideal base suitable for couples wanting to enjoy the outdoors and explore the Brecon Beacons.
The Olchon Valley is situated on the Herefordshire/Welsh border within the Black Mountains on the eastern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. It’s an area of special scientific interest, with a profusion of birds, plants, and animals, some rare, along with no light pollution – it is a great place for stargazing. Here, you can leave the car behind and head into the Black Mountains, climb onto the Hatterrall Ridge to join the Offa’s Dyke Path where you can walk out to the Hay Bluff and Twmpa, or enjoy the ruins of Llanthony Priory. There is also canoeing, pony trekking, and climbing available within the park. For a more cultured day out, you can visit one of the many market towns including Hay-on-Wye (12.5 miles), Abergavenny (13 miles), and Crickhowell (21 miles).
