The ground floor welcomes you with an inviting entrance hall, a cloakroom for convenience, and a spacious sitting room adorned with a multi-fuel stove, ideal for relaxation and gatherings with loved ones.

It's worth noting that the current owners have obtained planning permission to further enhance Sunset Cottage. A double-storey extension is planned, which will include a utility room off the kitchen, providing additional convenience and storage space. Furthermore, an en-suite bathroom will be added to the main bedroom, offering luxurious privacy and comfort. Additionally, a carport will be constructed, ensuring sheltered parking for vehicles, further enhancing the practicality of this charming property.

Large mature gardens sprawl across the front and side of the property, adorned with a variety of ornamental trees and mature shrubs, creating a serene oasis to explore and unwind. A gentle stream meanders through the grounds, adding to the enchanting ambiance of the outdoors. Wooden edged paths lead to various parts of the garden, inviting leisurely strolls and moments of contemplation. 

Attractive wooden gates open onto a gravelled driveway, providing ample parking and a turning area, ensuring convenience for residents and guests alike. Additionally, a detached barn-style outbuilding stands adjacent to the cottage, offering the perfect use for a garage or workshop, providing ample storage or creative workspace for hobbies and projects.

Steeped in history, Sunset Cottage holds a special place in the heritage of the Grwyne Fawr Valley. It is said that Sunset Cottage marked the start of the railway that once traversed the valley. In the early 1900s, a temporary village called Tin Town was established nearby to house the men employed to build the Grwyne Fawr Reservoir. The railway line, constructed to transport both men and materials to the top of the valley, played a crucial role in this monumental undertaking, and Sunset Cottage stood witness to this remarkable chapter in the valley's history.

Situated in close proximity to the village of Cwmyoy, Sunset Cottage offers the best of both worlds—rural tranquillity and accessibility to local amenities. The village boasts a charming public house and a beautiful church. Nearby Llanvihangel Crucorney offers additional amenities, including the reputed oldest pub in Wales, a garage, school and shops, while the historic landmarks of Llanthony Priory beckon exploration, just a short drive away. For those seeking adventure, the surrounding valley offers breathtaking views and opportunities for outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, and hiking. With the historic market towns of Abergavenny and Crickhowell just a few miles away, residents can enjoy a diverse range of amenities.
