Footpaths lead up Sugar Loaf and into the Black Mountains. The White House is sleek and bright with white walls, oak doors, slate floors and retro 1950s furniture. Enclosed garden, wood-burner and eco-friendly air-source heat pump
Two doubles, one twin, bathroom, wetroom.
The White House sits at the entrance to the yard. It was built in 1970 to provide all the mod cons the old farmhouse then lacked. It is light and bright, with south-facing windows in most of the rooms making the most of the sweeping views down the valley to Abergavenny below. Touches such as copper guttering and oak doors add distinction to its simple white exterior.
Inside, the clean modern lines of the rooms are enhanced by sparkling white walls, sleek Welsh slate floors and golden oak doors. The mix of contemporary and vintage furniture and fittings combine 21st century style with a retro 1950s/60s twist. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to make the most of the superb local produce on offer here, including a homemade cake and six eggs from our free range hens. Our own lamb is also available on request. In the living room a woodburner supplements the underfloor heating, making sure you can feel snug and warm whatever the weather is throwing at you. All three bedrooms are bright and spacious and have views of the surrounding fields and hills. Towels and linen are provided and are100% cotton.
There is plenty of space in the entrance porch for storing all your outdoor gear and oak patio doors lead out from here to the north patio and parking area; another door leads from the hallway to the pretty, enclosed south-facing garden with lawns, patio and colourful flower borders – perfect for relaxing and drinking in the views. A barbecue is provided.

Interaction with guests
We live on site in the old farmhouse. We are here if you need any help or advice, or if you want to buy some of our beautiful organic lamb, but if you want to enjoy tranquillity and seclusion in your own space that's fine by us!
- dogs are welcome but please be aware that there are sheep in the surrounding fields and hens range free around the farm
