Notes and Comments:

Situation and Description
The delightful village of Longtown lies on the edge of the Black Mountains, which themselves are part of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The whole area is renowned for its natural beauty and is hugely popular with walkers and those who enjoy outdoor pursuits. The village itself has a thriving community and has a popular primary school, award winning shop, village hall and pub. The market towns of Abergavenny and Hay on Wye are also within reach and offer more extensive services when required.

The cottage itself is full of character and charm and backs on to the site of Longtown Castle. An ancient monument, it provides an atmospheric backdrop to this attractive mid terraced property. To the front a large arched door leads into a spacious enclosed porch, with vaulted ceiling and plenty of space for coats and shoes. A fielded panel door then opens into the living room, which offers plenty of space and includes a stone fireplace in one corner (currently not in use) modern electric heaters, a sash window to the front, stained wooden floor and useful understairs storage cupboard. At the rear of the cottage a kitchen /breakfast room overlooks a small, enclosed garden and the ruins of the castle. There are a range of fitted cupboards and drawers, working surfaces, a sink unit, tiled floor and access to a covered rear porch.

From the living room a staircase leads up to a first-floor landing, with doors to two individual bedrooms each with electric heating, one with fitted cupboards with hot water cylinder, and the other with far reaching views over the castle ruins to the Black Mountains. A separate bathroom then has a window to the front and all the usual fittings, including a bath with electric shower over.

To the front, a cast iron gate and railings enclose a pretty garden area and at the rear the gardens are well enclosed by stone walling and include a flower border, garden shed and rear pedestrian access. There is then an allocated parking space belonging to the cottage as well as on road parking to the front, with a village green opposite.
