Attractive detached property with own private hot tub, enjoying a beautiful rural location near the Brecon Beacons village of Govilon, just a short drive from the popular towns of Abergavenny and Crickhowell.

This detached property, accessed down a narrow country lane, offers peace and tranquillity and adjoins 40 acres of its own land, with beautiful walks, climbs and even caves and a waterfall to explore. The tranquil Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal is less than a mile from the property. The village centre of Govilon is just a short walk away and is right in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The village also lies on the edge of the Blaenavon World Heritage site, home to several historic attractions including the Big Pit National Coal Museum, Blaenavon Heritage Railway and Blaenavon Iron Works. There are many miles of walks, cycle routes and towpaths within easy reach, and opportunities to try climbing, abseiling, canoeing, and caving are all on your doorstep. For a more restful day trip, nearby Abergavenny is a must, which has built an excellent culinary reputation and a visit to the award-winning high street in Crickhowell is highly recommended.

This is a peaceful, secluded and well designed barn conversion, which was a comfortable base from which to explore the footpaths and cycling in the immediate area. In Abergavenny market we enjoyed buying local produce to cook at home. Eating on the veranda and using the hot tub in the evenings, looking at the stars, was a joy. The owners of the barRead moren were supportive whenever we needed advice. WiFi can be slow so best for people who want a bit of a break from full connectivity. Hide

Comfortable, tastefully renovated, cottage set in beautiful surroundings, very much cut off from the outside world. Lovely to fall asleep listening to the sound of the stream alongside the property. We enjoyed the hot tub with a spectacular view of the Welsh hills. Our dog loved barking at the sheep and horses. The last mile or so of the journey waRead mores a challenge - on arrival, we met two vehicles coming the other way and had to reverse a fully laden car over 100m up a hill! Hide

Tumbles End Barn was 100% exactly what we were looking for when we booked our holiday and we couldn't have been more delighted! We'd give it 10 stars if we could! We were really sad to leave - even Achilles the cat had a wonderful time! The barn is perfectly appointed and has been done up to an extremely high standard - the photos don't do it justiRead morece. The views are spectacular and Jim and Kirsty are fantastic and attentive hosts. We'll definitely be back! Hide

Fantastic setting in the peace and quiet but not far from lots to do and great walking. High standard of accommodation and everything that you could need and more. What better way than spending your evening in the hot tub under the stars!

Very pleasant. Newly and well renovated cottage in a tranquil setting- only neighbours being some horses/sheep walking past the lounge window! Access is down a private narrow lane which is a little stressful the first time, but it's something you get quickly used to and was wide enough for my parents who drive a relatively large 4x4. Lovely (but tiRead morering) walk immediately out of the front door up to Blorenge mountain with fantastic scenic views and near enough to all amenities. Would revisit. Hide

We really enjoyed our stay at Tumbles End Barn! It's a beautiful property in a remote location, exactly what you need to escape! Everything was thought of by the owners and we had all necessities on arrival. The hot tub was very easy to use, all you need is a bit of time and patience which is worth the wait to soak up the views surrounding you. TheRead more welcome hamper was a bonus, prosecco and cakes that were all delicious. Our four legged friendly loved seeing the animals approach the large window. Hide

Great character cottage in the middle of nowhere. Very quiet, sheep & ponies come up to the lounge window on a regular basis. Great walking area direct from the cottage. Would recommend to anybody. Just take care on approach as road is very narrow.

Reviewed by Gari 12th April 2019

A fabulous space with everything you could ever need. Lovely barn conversion, plenty of space for all. Location is great, rural, but still easy access to main roads. Good location for walks, running. The AGA and hot tub were a great treat. There is a great range of activities nearby (car is essential).
