The White House
The White House stands at the entrance to the yard.  It was built in 1970 to provide all the mod cons the old farmhouse then lacked.
It is light and bright, with south-facing windows in most of the rooms to take in the sweeping views down the valley to Abergavenny and its surrounding hills. Touches such as copper guttering and oak doors add distinction to its simple white exterior.

Sleek and Stylish

Inside, the clean modern lines of the rooms are enhanced by sparkling white walls, Welsh slate floors and golden oak doors. The mix of contemporary and vintage furniture and fittings combine 21st century style with a retro 1950s/60s twist.  The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to make the most of the superb local produce on offer here, including a homemade cake and six eggs from our free range ducks and hens. Our own lamb is also available.  In the living room a woodburner supplements the underfloor heating, making sure you can feel snug and warm whatever the weather is throwing at you, and there is wifi, TV and DVD, a radio, a CD player with i-pod dock, a selection of board games and loads of books.  There is plenty of space in the entrance porch for storing all your outdoor gear; oak patio doors lead out from here to the back garden and parking area; another door leads from the hallway to the pretty, enclosed south-facing garden with lawns, patio and colourful flower borders – perfect for relaxing and drinking in the views, and a brilliant vantage point for the town’s fireworks displays at New Year and during the Food Festival! A barbecue is provided.
