Introduction

Gelligravog Farmhouse (circa 1610), set in 32 acres on the side of Mynydd Maen, above Upper Cwmbran, Gwent, is a traditional Welsh Longhouse that was once part of the Estate of the Hanbury family, who developed the famous Pontypool Japan Ware.

It has been extensively modernised by its present owners to offer comfortable accomodation. Gelligravog B&B is open all year. Horses and pets accomodated by arrangement. We also cater for campers.

Easily accessible to the north are the market town of Abergavenny, the World Heritage site of Blaenavon (with its famous Big Pit Mining Museum), and the rugged Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons.

Drive south to Newport with its famous Transporter Bridge, and Tredegar House Country Park.

To the west you can simply walk up Mynydd Maen for outstanding views from the Beacons to the Bristol Channel
