Featuring garden views, Ty-Gwyn offers accommodations with a terrace and a kettle, around 2.5 mi from Abergavenny Castle. This property offers access to a patio and free private parking. The owners are very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The cottage is cosy and clean and had everything we needed. The views are stunning and it is the perfect quiet and peaceful location. I would highly recommend this break to everyone considering a lovely quiet break. It is near enough to the local town if you have access to a car. We didn't want to leave ;)

Plenty of interesting things to see. The Rhymney Brewery tour is good but note that it opens at 11.30 a.m. Fill up your time by visiting Big Pit just a little further down the road. This is the experience of a life-time. The Ironworks doesn't open on a Wednesday if you fancy a visit there. The heritage Centre is also well worth a visit.
We found it a most interesting area to visit. We had a great day at the Big Pit coal mining museum. Also the ironworks museum was good especially the old workers cottages furnished as they would have been at various times in history. Other local museums worth a visit. One of them located in what had previously been an old school. There was also a good café with a courtyard overlooking the valley. Our hotel served excellent food, but most days we didn't need to buy much food as we were so full after an excellent breakfast! There was a chip shop down the road and a café which looked inviting but had closed early so we were unable to try it out!
Our visit was specifically to go to Big Pit which we thoroughly enjoyed. If we had stayed longer we could have visited the Iron Works, the Alexander Cordell museum & other places in the vicinity. We visited the Six Bells Guardian on the way home which was an amazing feat of engineering. To see him rising above the trees is a sight that I won't forget in a hurrry. One of the direction signs was missing so we took a wrong path by the construction site where a new school is being built. A tidy walk but well paved for wheelchairs.
The Big Pit was an amazing experience, so informative and moving. The staff there were so committed and animated that it brought history to life. The heritage centre was well worth a visit too and of course the Brecon Beacons are beautiful. All the people we met in the town and surrounding areas were friendly and helpful.
The food at the restaurant is absolutely delicious, there is no wonder it has been rated with 4* The TV is set up with ‘now Tv’, this is very confusing and we gave up trying to watch any Tv, which was disappointing.
A real surprise for me. The Ironworks was absolutely fascinating and well kitted out. The brewery was interesting, though quite quiet as we went in February on a Saturday when it’s low season. The Big Pit is also well worth a visit, as is the amazing Heritage Centre. I needed at least one extra day there to fully appreciate it.
Friendly helpful staff. Excellent dinner and breakfast. Very quiet location
