Alone at Last: Remote Retreats in a Secluded Corner of Wales

Looking for the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of busy life? Welcome to Llanthony Court Castaway…

Our uniquely restored railway carriage is wonderfully secluded and private, set in beautiful scenery on the beautiful Welsh border. Our restful hideaway is ideal for reconnecting with nature and your loved one. With no phone or Wi-Fi signal, you can enjoy spending quality time with yourself, the views and mother Nature.


The Lovely Llanthony Valley

Travel down a single-track road that winds through the Black Mountains to the picturesque Llanthony Valley, before arriving at our family farmland surrounding the 12th Century ruins of the ancient Llanthony Priory. Although the valley is only 9 miles away from the busy market town of Abergavenny, it’s as if you have left civilisation far behind you. Feel your worries simply float away as you listen to the serene sounds of birdsong, the wind, and silence – oh, glorious silence…

Llanthony Valley has inspired many generations of painters, artists, and writers, including JMW Turner, David Jones, and John Piper. Get in touch with your wild side whilst you wade through streams, explore old drovers’ tracks, wander through endless moorland, and discover ancient castles, buildings, and churches.  

If you’re a keen wildlife watcher, you’ll feel right at home here. Observe brilliant buzzards, remarkable red kits, humble hares, bustling badgers, and outstanding owls from the comfort of your very own accommodation. The remote Llanthony Valley is also a designated Dark Sky Reserve. As the night draws in, you will be rewarded with stunningly clear dark skies full of twinkling stars. How’s that for some true peace and quiet?!


Time for a Digital Detox

Our converted railway carriage comes with no phone signal and no Wi-Fi, meaning you can completely switch off from the outside world and all the stresses that come with it. Why not use this time to reconnect with your significant other or take up a new hobby? The world is your oyster!
