Living & Working on the Llanover Estate
The Brecon Beacons on Your Doorstep
The Coldbrook and Llanover Estate lies in the beautiful Usk Valley near the market town of Abergavenny, home of the Abergavenny Food Festival. Access to the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Black Mountains including well known peaks such as Pen y fan, Sugar Loaf and Table Mountain with their Bridleways, footpaths and cycle routes is easy. There are plenty of walking opportunities on the Estate either besides the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal or on the Usk Valley Walk or on any of the signposted national footpaths which cross the Estate.
Super Access and Broadband too!

The ownership of the Estate has been in the same family since in 1792. Just over two hundred years ago, the future Lady Llanover was born at Llanover, where she lived all her life, marrying Benjamin Hall. He was a very successful politician and is famously known for his name being given to the famous bell known as 'Big Ben' in the clock tower of the Houses of Parliament.
Since the 18th century, the Estate has remained with their respective descendants who have followed the overriding strategy of conservation of the land, properties and woodland.
