Hosted by JuliaAsk a question
We've been hosts since 2010 and the best part about it is getting to meet so many lovely people from all over the world and sharing Blackthorn Meadow with them. We are on hand if help or advice is needed and always do our best to ensure that everything is there for your stay. We check daily whether you need more wood for the multi-fuel fire or whether you would like some free free-range eggs from our hens (subject to availability). We also check the jacuzzi chemicals for you on a daily basis while still respecting your privacy. However if there is anything that you need we can be contacted very quickly via Vrbo.
Why Julia chose Llangybi
Blackthorn Lodge's Jacuzzi and Sauna are situated in it's own private lockable garden area which has been landscaped to include paving blocks and golden flint so it is safe to walk to 12 months of the year regardless of the weather (although like all jacuzzies it cannot be used during thunderstorms). We also have a children's play area to keep the children (and parents) happy. We are only 2 minutes drive or 5 minute walk from the Carpenter's Arms public house and restaurant and less then a 2 minute drive or10 minute downhill walk from Blackthorn Meadow to Llandegfedd Lake's Visitor and Watersports Centre.
What makes this Bungalow unique
The purpose built Llandegfedd Lake Watersport Centre specialises in tuition and equipment hire. You may also bring your own kit and pay to launch your craft. They offer one of the best sailing experiences South Wales has to offer and is a fully accessible activity. Other water activities include windsurfing, dinghy sailing, stand up paddle boarding and pedal boarding, canoeing and kayaking. They have brand new kit for hire including the first fleet of Stand-Up Pedal Boards in Wales. They offer fishing and open water swimming. Llandegfedd Lake’s open water swimming sessions are regulated under the close supervision of their fully-trained team. Pre-booked organised sessions are tailored to clubs, groups and individuals who want to have a go at this hugely popular activity. Llandegfedd Lake also has 4 designated walks that can take you around the reservoir and into the surrounding countryside. If water sports and walks don't appeal to you then you can relax and watch the world go by while enjoying Bara Brith, Welsh cakes, scones or a full breakfast or other meal from their menu. Blackthorn Meadow is a short distance from traditional villages and modern shopping centres. Supermarkets including Iceland, Sainsburys, Waitrose, Morrisons, Asda and Tesco offer a reliable delivery service so you can arrange to have your shopping arrive just after you do. We are also less than 6 minutes drive to Greenmeadow Golf and Country Club which has a restaurant and bar. Other places to visit include Cwmbran Boating Lake, Blaenavon World Heritage Centre, Usk's rural life museum (also Roman Fort (ruins), coffee shops, range of small traditional art and craft shops) and Caerleon's Roman legionary fortress of Isca as they are only a short driving distance away. No visit to Wales is complete without a visit to Cardiff's St Fagan's National History Museum - a leading open-air museum (in the castle grounds). We are also within travelling distance of castles, beaches and farm parks.
