"Into the Forest I go, to ease my mind and find my soul..."

Black Mountains, Wales | 27 - 30 September 2024

The Llanthony Valley and Sugar Loaf mountain are jewels of the Black Mountains and between the two lies Forest Coalpit a magical valley with Fforest Barn at the end of the lane. Fforest barn fuses a 17th century oak beamed stone barn with an eco-friendly Dutch barn giving the feel of ancient Wales with all mod cons, total privacy and stunning views and walks in every direction.

Travel:

By Train

Fforest Barn is about 10 mins from Abergavenny train station. If you’re coming by train you go from Paddington to Newport, then change for Abergavenny. This should take max 2.5 hours. There are buses for under £15 to Newport, then take the train, or maybe bus all the way. There are also trains from Birmingham New Street, via Hereford.

If you need a taxi to/from Abergavenny call Peter at A Cabs on 01873 737736 or 07958 702208. This costs around £12 one way.

By Car

Wherever you are coming from head for Abergavenny. From London that means going on the M4, crossing the Severn Bridge, and turning off on junction 24 onto the A449. You’ll know when this junction is coming up because you’ll see the giant hotel The Celtic Manor Resort, on the hill in front of you. (Your GPS might want to take you to the next junction, which is OK but slower.) After about 10 miles turn left at Raglan onto the A40 signposted to Abergavenny.

If a few are coming by car, there is the option of carpooling - fun road trip!
