The Location
Situated only a mile from Tyn-y-bryn is the market town of Abergavenny.  Known as the Gateway to Wales, this historic market town features, amongst other attractions,   produce markets on Tuesdays and Fridays, a medieval castle, St Mary's priory church which houses the famous Jesse tree and an outstanding collection of tombs - it is known as the Westminster Abbey of Wales - and several attractive parks and gardens.
The surrounding countryside offers a wide range of activities - walking, canoeing, canal boating and sailing, caving, pony trekking, hang-gliding, gliding and several golf courses (including a public course and driving range just over a mile from Tyn-y-bryn), as well as the famous Celtic Manor resort where the 2010 Ryder Cup was played.
Places of interest in the area include Llanthony and Tintern Abbeys, the World Heritage Site in Blaenavon which includes the Big Pit Mining Museum (offering underground tours by ex-miners) and the Ironworks, Offa's Dyke and numerous castles and museums.
Nearby Hay-0n-Wye lays claim to the largest second hand bookshop in the world and has a world famous Festival of Literature each year in May.  Our farm is actually situated within the Brecon Beacons National Park, which is an area of outstanding natural beauty with waterfalls, lakes and rivers plus many wonderful hills to climb.
There are many excellent pubs and restaurants within easy reach, ranging from nationally renowned eateries such as The Hardwick, The Walnut Tree, The Bell at Skenfrith and The Bear at Crickhowell to good value traditional pubs, including our local pub The Crown Inn which is just one mile away and serves excellent food. The Angel Hotel in the centre of Abergavenny has won awards for its afternoon teas and Sunday lunches - well worth a visit.
Easy access to the M4, M50 and M5 motorways, together with convenient rail links and the outstanding beauty of the Black Mountains make this an ideal holiday location.
We offer excellent access to DARK SKIES for all those of you interested in star watching - we suffer little from light pollution and enjoy many evenings reclining watching the heavens above us.
Long breaks, short breaks,(minimum 3 nights) - you can be sure of a warm welcome and traditional hospitality at Tyn-y-bryn.  Join us at "The house on the hill" above Abergavenny, the Gateway to Wales.

On arrival at the big roundabout just outside Abergavenny take the A465 towards Hereford.  This road bypasses the town – you need to drive 2.9 miles along until you come to the turning Left for Abergavenny.  Drive along this road for 0.7 miles then take the turning on the Right.
ollow this road up the hill and around a right-angled bend then after about 200 yards take the lane that goes up to the Left.
At this stage look up – you will see Tyn-y-bryn in front of you and the cottage is on the left (covered with Virginia creeper if it is summer time).  At the T junction go Left and then take the next lane on the Right, signposted DERISIDE, which is just after a large white house with blue paintwork.
This is the way to TYN-Y-BRYN.   
You have about 450 yards to go. Watch out for our Tyn-y-bryn signs from here.  Take the Left where the road forks and then keep to the Right and turn immediately Right up our driveway.  I am sure you will agree the view is worth the slightly bumpy drive.
