Staying at Graig Ddu is a profound off-grid moment. This idyllic cottage is hidden away, immersed in timeless tranquillity in the heart of the Black Mountains, near Abergavenny, in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Graig Ddu is just the place for retreating and contemplating. Lying in acres of forest with no neighbours, no Wifi, no TV and no mobile reception. Sit in the garden or walk on the hills straight from the door.

Restore, recharge, reboot, relax.

2 well-behaved dogs welcome £20ea

The space
This cottage is used for business retreats and coaching for business leaders.
You are welcome to make an enquiry to learn more about this service.

There is the feeling that the rest of the world has evaporated. If you're in search of the ultimate get away, this tranquil cottage is up there with the best.

Enjoy the birdsong by day and amazing starscapes by night, indulge your inner recluse – read, write, retreat. Stock up on food, light the wood-burner, hide the car keys and relax.

The Area

There are 2 traditional pubs within 1 mile, in the small hamlet of Llanthony. Both offer hearty pub grub and are easily walkable for the keen and energetic. One is in the crypt of the ruins of the magnificent Llanthony Abbey - well worth a visit in its own right. There is a footpath to the village across the fields just down the forest track from the cottage.

The annual Llanthony Show is still held to be one of the best local shows around and is held on the first weekend in August.

Where you’ll be

Llanthony, Wales, United Kingdom

The charming market town of Abergavenny is 10 miles away and has a healthy representation of the UK's supermarkets, independent butchers supplied by local farmers, artisan bread shops, eateries and coffee shops.

Monmouth, Crickhowell and Hay on Wye are all pretty market towns within about 15 miles. Good local butchers, farmers' markets and the whole range of supermarkets from Aldi and Lidl (Abergavenny and Monmouth) to Waitrose - also in Abergavenny and Monmouth.

Drive to Hay on Wye, world famous town of books that hosts the annual Hay Literary Festival. This is guaranteed to be one of the drives of your life as you reach the top of Gospel Pass at the head of the Llanthony Valley, with breathtaking views ahead of you.

Hereford and Cardiff are further afield for those hunting for shopping or culture.
