Why we've chosen Trevyr Barn, Grosmont, Wales

Welcome to Trevyr Barn; a luxury holiday cottage sleeping 6- 7 just outside Grosmont, on the picturesque South Wales border. We offer a tranquil retreat for a relaxed, self catering holiday suitable for families, friends, or a romantic getaway. 
Stone built, Trevyr Barn has been recently restored using traditional materials including stone and oak floors, wooden beams and incorporating the full range of energy efficient utilities. It is furnished in a comfortable contemporary style, with big leather sofas and lots of chunky oak furniture to create the perfect space to relax and enjoy.
Spacious farmhouse kitchen/dining room
Large sitting room with wood burning stove
Huge master bedroom
Second double bedroom
Twin bedroom (bunk beds)
Bathroom and shower room
Secluded courtyard and lawned garden 
The barn is set on a quiet lane a mile outside the village and has lovely views over unspoilt pastures and woodland. We have ten acres of fields, a brook and an orchard, and our guests are welcome to wander around and explore, and of course, to help themselves to fruit when in season.
Trevyr Barn is a fantastic base for exploring this beautiful and historic area. We are situated between the Wye Valley AONB and the Black Mountains and just to the east of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Grosmont is a traditional farming village with castle, pub and tearoom, surrounded by low intensity farming, woodland and hills - much of which is easily accessible direct from the barn.  We can give you lots of ideas for walks and cycle rides to make the most of your stay.
This fascinating region of the Welsh borders offers a wealth of outdoor activities for all ages and abilities and many interesting historical sites (from the Middle Ages to the Industrial Revolution). Monmouthshire is well known for its excellent local produce and restaurants - making eating in or out a real pleasure.
