Situated just outside Abergavenny, these two luxury detached cottages are part of the historic fabric of Llanfoist Wharf, the most admired location on the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. Originally a hive of industry, Llanfoist Wharf is now a tranquil spot nestled amongst 30 acres of broadleaf woodland on the side of the Blorenge mountain - located in both the Brecon Beacons National Park and Blaenavon World Heritage Site. The wharf dates back to the early 1800s and features in Alexander Cordell’s bestseller, Rape of the Fair Country. It was built to transfer pig iron from the tramroad, which came down the side of the Blorenge mountain, to the canal, and then across the world via the port of Newport. Alasdair and Sarah, owners of Beacon Park Boats, based in Llangattock 6 miles north along the canal, live in the adjacent 19th century warehouse. The cottages may be hired for a relaxing waterside break or can be combined with time on our boats (available March to October) for a longer holiday.
