Why we've chosen Courtyard Cottage, Brecon Beacons, Wales

Courtyard Cottage is located on Hopyard Farm close to the market town of Abergavenny. Hopyard Farm offers a large outdoor play area, indoor games room plus a cycle hire business on site. Enjoy a walk from the farm to the River Usk or grab a bike and pedal alongside the Brecon-Monmouth Canal.

Venture further into the Brecon Beacons and test yourself canoeing, rafting, abseiling or gorge walking. For a gentler break visit the World Heritage site at Blaenavon on our doorstep or visit one of the many castles - historical monuments or make believe battlegrounds for the kids.
