Setting and Local Information
More About this Property
Fairlea is a very special place in a special town. It was built by Abergavenny's most famous builder in 1880 and is full of character with elaborate ceilings, carved stone fireplaces, stained glass windows and painted clay tiled floors. It oozes atmosphere and charm. With the Grange being located in the heart of this wonderful market town, with its legendary Food Festival, you won't be bored for a minute. If you want a holiday indoors catching up with family and friends it's perfect: so much space on site and so much to do you need never leave (and if you do, imagine coming home to the sauna and hot tub - wonderful). However, if you're active and want to be out and about, it's equally good: the Brecon Beacons are right on the doorstep for amazing walking, or you can spend time in town sampling the market, museum, castle, shopping, vineyard, climbing centre, Hidden Garden, cinema, theatre etc. the list goes on. Ample pubs and restaurants within walking distance - no need for a designated driver here. Fairlea Grange is the perfect choice for walkers, foodies, families, and friends and once you've been you'll want to return time and again. Croeso i Gymru as we say round here (Welcome to Wales!).
