Things to do

Some of the local attractions

The Beacons Way and Cambrian Way National footpaths pass within 1/2 mile of the farmhouse, and Offa’s Dyke Footpath and National Cycle Route 42 pass less than 2 miles away, so we are ideally placed for walkers and riders.

Close by is the beautiful Patrishow church with it’s amazing 15th C. oak carved screen and wall paintings. And it’s less than 90 minutes walk to the top of the Sugar Loaf mountain.

Fforest farmhouse is in the Grwyne Fawr valley. With no through traffic, it’s the perfect place to get away from it all.

In the next valley is Llanthony Priory, and carry on past there, through Capel-y-Ffin, through the spectacular Gospel Pass and over the top to Hay-on Wye.

We don’t keep animals on the farm (apart from a few sheep), but we have planted 12,000 trees on the hillsides, plus an orchard, and an apiary and will be happy to help you make the most of your time in the Black Mountains.

Abergavenny is the Welsh foodie capital, and there are lots of pubs and restaurants nearby where you can experience the best local food and drinks.
