The cottage lies on the fringe of the historic village of Llanvihangel Crucorney and sits in an elevated position above the River Honddu.
Believed to have been built circa 1730, the property has much character and many period features combined with an interesting history, having been a blacksmiths and post office in the past. Today a much loved family home, the house has, in more recent times, been run as a successful Bed & Breakfast business due to its location within such a highly desirable tourist destination. Elements of the original cottage including heavy oak beams and exposed stonework are complemented by later additions such as a beautifully fitted country style kitchen and oak-framed porch. A highlight of the spacious, flowing accommodation is the generously proportioned conservatory offering splendid views across the garden and farmland on the opposite side of the river. Trout Cottage has all the appeal of a cottage with inglenook fireplace with original bread oven, split staircase and thick stone walls enriched with more modern extensions offering large, versatile living space. The cottage is set in circa 2 acres of beautiful gardens and grounds with views toward Skirrid Fawr and access nearby to the Black Mountains.
Trout Cottage is accessed off a country lane and unlike many cottages, has an extensive parking area plus a detached double garage/workshop. The location of the cottage is idyllic and the peaceful outside space complements the cottage. Immediately behind and to the side of the house are lawned gardens with an abundance of mature plants, shrubs and trees. Seating areas have been carefully positioned to enjoy the tranquillity and soothing sound of flowing water. Beyond the gardens are level grounds which incorporate the ‘working’ area with an orchard, soft fruit bushes, bee hives, planted beds, vegetable garden, greenhouse and a polytunnel. The property enjoys fishing rights extending to some 400 yards along a stretch of water home to a wide variety of wildlife. Words alone cannot convey the hard work the present owners have invested in creating a productive piece of land, which has not only given them much pleasure, but provided an abundance of home grown and organic crop.
Llanvihangel Crucorney is situated within the Brecon Beacons National Park and is on the English/Welsh borders of Herefordshire and Monmouthshire. The village lies at the base of the extraordinary Skirrid Fawr Mountain, also known as the Holy Mountain, a popular destination for hill walkers. Trout Cottage is within walking distance of the shop, garage and The Skirrid Mountain Inn, which is believed to be the oldest public house in Wales and has stood for over nine centuries. The historic market town of Abergavenny is around 7 miles to the south and offers an excellent range of amenities including major supermarkets, primary and secondary schools, banks, doctors’ and dentists’ surgeries and a general hospital. The town has a leisure centre, theatre, cinema and the surrounding area is well known for its many high quality restaurants. Abergavenny has a mainline train station and excellent road links for commuting. The property is situated within easy reach of A465/A449 trunk roads leading to the M4, M5 and M50 motorways for Cardiff, Bristol and Birmingham and the A40 for Brecon and Monmouth.
We understand the property has mains electricity and water. Private drainage via septic tank. Oil-fired central heating.
The cottage sits above the River Honddu and, even during the fiercest of storms, the garden has had some standing water but there has not been any water ingress to the house. This is confirmed by the Environment Agency Flood Map.
