Little Loft is set in a stunning landscape
Little Loft is set in a stunning landscape on the English side of the Welsh Border.. The view from the bedroom window 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 wildness of the Black Mountains in Wales.
It is a magical borderland, dotted with ruined castles, abbeys, and ancient churches, a 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 The 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 broadband 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; Spring, summer and early autumn are all festival times in the market towns. May brings the Hay on Wye literary festival; August, Brecon Jazz; and September the Abergavenny Food Festival.
This Spring of 2014 is our first season of letting the loft.

Very peaceful place with wonderful views wherever you turn . It was a deceptively spacious and light and airy space, simply furnished with a very comfortable bed. We enjoyed being self contained, which brought all the advantages of privacy (complete with our own garden)whist having very friendly hosts over the bridge in the house. They were happy on one of the days to cook us a delicious breakfast at a reasonable rate.
Kate and Robert were knowledgeable hosts and very helpful with information about the local area, which was stunning and my abiding memory will be of the birdsong and a great walk from the house over the mountain to Llanthony Abbey.
Perfect for Couples
