Nant y Bedd, Grwyne Fawr, Fforest Coal Pit, Abergavenny NP7 7LY, UK



01873 890219



Nant y Bedd is found 4.5 miles up the road towards the Grwyne Fawr Reservoir, in the area known as Fforest Coal Pit, Abergavenny, and is about equidistant from Abergavenny and Crickhowell, around 10 miles. From Abergavenny come via Pantygelli and Bettws or -- if you are uncertain on narrow country roads -- take the A465 Abergavenny to Hereford road and turn off at Llanfihangel Crucorney (see below). From Crickhowell via the turning to Llanbedr.

Coming from Hereford direction turn off the A465 at Llanfihangel Crucorney.

From either direction you will arrive at Five Ways junction. Take the road to the Grwyne Fawr reservoir, passing the grey telephone box.

The post code for sat-navvers is NP7 7LY, but when the voice tells you that you've arrived, you will probably be opposite a house called Ty Hir. Keep going for another half mile and you will come to Nant y Bedd.

It really is only 4.5 miles from the grey telephone box, but if you don't know the road it will seem further - don't give up!!

The house is on the left hand side of the road and there are large sheds on the right hand side. There's also a small red Post Box just by the front gate.

For NGS Open Garden Days parking is usually in one of the forest roads just before the house and will be signposted. On other days please park alongside the tin roofed shed on the righthand side of the road.

Opening Times:

Open Friday to Sunday 2pm to 6pm in July, August and September, plus August Bank Holiday. Note: opening again in 2021
