THIS cottage needs some modernisation – but is based in an area of natural beauty.

For someone looking for a fixer-upper this two-bedroom terraced cottage could be ideal, with the property based in Clydach Gorge in Gilwern.

The landmark is rich in history and natural beauty (although it’s near the busy A465 Heads of the Valleys Road), meaning this home could be well suited to someone who loves exploration.

The cottage, on Forge Row, is being marketed by James Dean Abergavenny and is listed on Rightmove.

Meanwhile, the conservatory – off a rear hall - may not be the fanciest, but could be a lovely location to sip a drink and enjoy some reading or colouring to the soothing sound of rain pattering on the glass.

The metal-framed feature looks over the “sunny aspect” back garden which is a “good size” and appears to be well-maintained.
