Trout Cottage is a superb detached cottage located overlooking the River Honddu just outside the popular village of Llanvihangel Crucorney, near Abergavenny. Set within an impressive plot of more than three acres, it is believed that the original property dates back to 1730 and has at various times been a blacksmiths, post office and most recently under the stewardship of the current owners, a successful B & B. The property over time has been substantially extended to create a home that offers both generous and flexible accommodation, as well as a wealth of features and period character. The extensive ground floor comprises a 25’ lounge with inglenook fireplace and exposed beams, a further large sitting room with attached office area, and large kitchen/diner, refitted five years ago and incorporating an electric range oven. In addition there is a fabulous 26’ conservatory overlooking the formal garden and the farmland across the river, a large utility room, downstairs cloakroom and hand-built oak framed porch. Upstairs there is a generous master bedroom with fitted storage and full en-suite bathroom, three further double bedrooms and a modern, tiled family bathroom. Trout Cottage is set back behind a pretty and densely planted front garden with pergola seating area. To one side there is extensive driveway parking with two points of access providing parking for numerous cars and leading to a detached double garage/workshop. As impressive as the property is internally, it is more than matched by the exceptional garden and grounds. At over three acres it includes a substantial area of formal garden laid to lawn with decked seating area overlooking the River Honddu. The owners have truly maximised the productivity of the rest of the land having worked it organically throughout their tenure. A full range of soft fruit bushes grow alongside beds of dye plants, and hops. In addition there is a large poly tunnel and a greenhouse providing an environment to grow tender fruits and vegetables throughout the year. There is also an orchard combining older apple trees with recently planted pears, damsons, plums, and cherries. Beyond the flora, the owners have successfully run free range poultry in the garden and there is also an apiary at the far end of the property. The working part of the grounds is largely split into two fields which benefits from separate vehicular access and in one there is a large timber garage/store. It should also be mentioned that Trout Cottage suitably benefits from 400 yards of fishing rights. The river also supports a host wildlife particularly birds including herons and kingfishers, while buzzards and kites circle above. In summary, Trout Cottage is a wonderful home offering a superlative blend of accommodation, land and a spectacular location within the Brecon Beacons National Park.
