Little Loft

Studio Apartment


This place is set in a stunning landscape on the English side of the Welsh Borders. The dominant view flows down to the Monnow River at the bottom of the valley before sweeping up to the mountain ridge that bisects the landscape. This ridge is part of the long distance Offa’s Dyke walk and its summit separates the pastoral hedge lined meadows of England from the more mysterious rolling moorland wildness of the Black Mountains in Wales.

This magical borderland, dotted with ruined castles, abbeys, and ancient churches, is a delightful spot for lovers of nature, for doers and explorers, and for dreamers and thinkers.

Little Loft is a studio apartment in the apex of an oak framed barn, built in 2007. It has its own access up a garden stone staircase. A rocky stream flows down a gully through the gardens and separates Little Loft from the main house, thus providing privacy. An oak framed bridge provides another access. The loft has its own private elevated garden and a small, decked terrace built over the roof of a small house—a “des-res” for Lesser-horseshoe bats. This terrace leads into Little Loft via a lobby, which opens on to a simply furnished space with a bamboo floor. It has a very comfortable twin or king-sized bed, a well-equipped kitchenette, and separate modern shower room. There's free Wi-Fi available.

Little Loft is most suitable for two people, but can accommodate more.

There are many great options for dining out, and within walking distance there are 3 pubs, two of which have restaurants.

There's no best time to visit this lovely region. Spring, summer and early autumn are all festival times in the market towns. May brings the Hay on Wye literary festival; July English Choral Experience at Dore Abbey; August Brecon Jazz; and September the Abergavenny Food Festival.
