Meander along the waterways of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal (1 mile) on a narrowboat trip watching the wildlife as you drift down the water or cycle down the towpath, stopping for a leisurely lunch at one of the waterside pubs. With treks to suit all ages and abilities, saddle up a sturdy Welsh pony for a ride through quiet country lanes, farmland tracks and the occasional streams (8.5 miles). Pick up your paddle and kayak or canoe along the River Wye (13 miles), drift along with the current but be prepared for squeals and splashes when you reach the rapids. If the weather drives you inside, head to the Indoor Climbing Centre at Llangorse (12 miles) for climbing, caving and bouldering activities.

It was a lovely location, with plenty of space in the garden for my daughter and the dog to play safely and to park our 3 vehicles.

An excellent cottage in a beautiful location. It was very well equipped and the space is large enough for a large family with big comfortable bedrooms and an open plan layout downstairs . The owners on the farm were extremely helpful and there was very little noise from the farm and you can see the horses and sheep in the surrounding fields. It felRead moret very rural although on the edge of a village with fantastic walking from the house. We would highly recommend the cottage and would love to return. Hide

The cottage was wonderful, spacious and spotlessly clean. The bedrooms and bathrooms work so well in this new world of social distancing as each couple had their own space. The garden is stunning with a few glimpses of the mountains beyond. We ll definitely be back.

One thing to be aware of is that it is very open plan downstairs but we liked that. Hide

The barn far exceeded our expectations. It is well equipped, cosy, spotlessly clean and has plenty of space for all of us and the toddlers to play. The fully enclosed garden was great for the dog and little ones. Despite it being a very wet weekend in Wales we had a great time and the barn was a perfect base.
