Having grown up in this area and visited numerous times with my own children, we loved the enchantment of the woods and all the carvings. My, now teenage, daughter and I came for a walk this evening and we were both devastated to see the...More
After reading the wide range of reviews, we felt like it’s best to visit ourselves. When we arrive, next to the car park there is a barren land where a wood obviously used to be. This walk way to the canal is an absolute shambles,...More
The surroundings are lovely but the cafe charges London prices. I paid £2.70 for a small cup of coffee which was only half full. I had to go back and ask for a hot water top up. I also had a slice of cake at...More
Just had the best week on a canal boat. Perfect weather. Spotlessly clean boat, very well equipped. Very friendly and helpful staff (thank you Tim!). This is the most stunning stretch of canal, Well
Maintained and easy to navigate. Some of the pubs need to...More
Beautiful location, fantastic walking and friendly people - what more could you want???
Only whinge would be that the cafe had stopped serving sandwiches, but in fairness it was 4pm on a Sunday afternoon. Had a nice drink though.

We walked here along the canal tow path from Llanfoist. We were weary and foot sore but delighted to have a cafe on site and picnic tables alongside. We had to phone Abergavenny though to get a taxi back to the Railway Station. However, it...More

Nearest railway stations are Abergavenny or Cwmbran, both about 5 or 6 miles away. Abergavenny is most convenient for either getting a taxi to come out to the Wharf, or for catching a bus. The X3 and X33 buses run every hour between Abergavenny and Cwmbran, Monday to Saturday, but the nearest bus stop (at Llanover Post Office) is still a good mile away from the Wharf.
