Penpergwm Lodge

Abergavenny, Monmouthshire
Bed & Breakfast

Friendly and old-fashioned B&B on the edge of the Brecon Beacons - traditional bedrooms and 3 acres of splendid, established gardens


2 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


A rambling Edwardian house… Margot and Maud, resident pug and terrier, make a characterful welcoming party and you step into a warmly painted hall with old rugs on wooden boards. Simon and Catriona give you tea and biscuits in a sunny, lived-in sitting room: heaps of books, family bits and pieces, squashy sofa by the fire. Breakfast is served here, or round the long table in the dining room. Bedrooms are time-worn trad with embroidered covers and chintz; bathrooms are a skip across the landing. Enjoy the beautiful garden with parterre, potager, orchard and brick follies, bring a jumper in winter and don’t mind the worn corners… a charming home.

We stayed here for 3 nights and did not want to leave! It was a wonderful time with lovely, friendly and helpful hosts!! They welcomed us with tea and cake in their wonderful old house which has a great atmosphere ! Our daughters loved the garden pool and of course the cute two dogs! We thank you for your hospitality and like to come back again one day...! Many regards Anne, Oliver, Charlotte and Frederike

Once again a Sawday’s recommendation hasn’t disappointed. We loved what we found here and were made to feel most welcome by the hosts, dogs and visiting grandchildren. We were scooped up on arrival, deposited on comfortable sofas with a pot of tea and biscuits, then left in peace to enjoy the view over the gardens. Our room was large and elegant, the beds comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Everything was well presented and the cooked option had obviously come straight from the pan to the table. Delicious. This was just a stop over but we are already planning a return visit.

This place is a lovely family home with a wonderful garden. It is not a modern hotel, so don't go expecting that. What you are likely to find however, are two charming and generous people who go out of their way to make sure that you are welcome and extremely comfortable. It was cool for May but we could heat our bathroom and bedroom and there was a lovely open fire in the sitting/breakfast room. Talking of which, the breakfast was copious, fresh and delicious. We have been before and have always enjoyed staying. With many thanks for your kindness and hospitality. Felicity and John.

I have just spent the last two nights here - what an absolutely fantastic time we had. Catriona and Simon could not have been not welcoming or helpful the whole experience was an absolute delight. This is not the place if you are after perfect decor however it is the place if you want something rather different, comfy beds, crisp linen, clean bathrooms, freshly cut mango and cooked breakfast, real fire in the comfort of the sofa in the 'old nursery' lounge. Catriona tells us she is selling next summer so we intend to go back for a visit before this to enjoy the amazing gardens. Huge THANK YOU!
