Berry Wood Barn is one of the most spectacularly positioned houses in the Llantony valley in the Black Mountains.
Perched high on Hatterall Ridge in the Brecon Beacons National Park, the views from the barn are truly breathtaking. Stand at the kitchen window and the valley sweeps away before you towards Hay on Wye.
Although you are in the middle of nowhere with only sheep for neighbours, Abergavenny is only 15 minutes drive away and Hereford is 20 mins.
Enjoy the best of welsh cuisine at the Michelin starred, Walnut Tree Inn, is just a few miles away, as is The Hardwick Restaurant with its Michelin starred chef, Stephen Terry, or try the Bell at Skenfrith for a delicious Sunday lunch. Alternatively for a more low key meal the Queen's Head just down the hill or the The Skirrid Inn are great options. If you're bringing your best friend along we'd recommend The Crown at Pantygelli for pet friendly pub lunches.
- Walking: You can walk directly from the barn or drive a short way to find many fantastic walks.
- Riding: At Llantony Abbey there is a pony trekking centre where you can do half a day or a whole day riding in the hills. Within 10 minutes drive from the barn there is a riding stables with very good teachers and horses.
- Shooting: There is clay pigeon shooting ten minutes from the barn as well as a shooting school about 45 minutes drive from the barn.
- Bird Watching: On Hatterall Hill, 5 minutes from the barn, there are Red Kites and many other beautiful birds.
- Hang Gliding: Many people love to jump off the hills around us and hang glide when the wind is blowing in the right direction.
- Climbing, Zip Wires and Sailing: There is a climbing wall for children (useful on a wet day!), zip wires, riding and a lake to sail on at a local Activity Centre.
