Historic Village Hotel

A beautiful country inn combining traditional charm with modern design, we have 10 spacious bedrooms and wonderful secluded landscaped gardens, located on the edge of the bustling market town of Abergavenny and minutes from the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Plas Derwen is an excellent food destination which offers a great quality menu using the finest seasonal ingredients, as well as an extensive drinks selection including Brains cask ales and premium imported lagers.

Local area

With the nearest train station a 10 minute walk away, there’s easy access to Cardiff and Bristol, perfect for those wanting to take a shopping trip or commute to a meeting. If you want to stay local, walking in the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park or along the Goytre wharf and canal may suit your needs. Alternatively take a step back in time and visit the Big Pit, one of Britain’s leading coal museums, or enjoy a tour around the Sugar Loaf vineyards.


The Cask Marque Award is an accreditation which guarantees guests the perfect pint of cask ale, every time. All the cask ales on sale are tested twice a year by a qualified assessor for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste and every beer must reach the required standard in order for the licensee to pass the inspection. Mystery visits may be carried out at any time and feedback is invited from the public.

Cask Marque is an independent, non-profit making organisation formed in 1998 with the aim of improving beer quality in British pubs through the accreditation scheme, training courses on cellar management and the setting of industry standards through a series of beer quality charters, including cellar management, glass-cleanliness and line cleaning.

Over 10,000 pubs hold the Award and each one participates in the ‘World’s Biggest Ale Trail’. This allows drinkers to scan the Cask Marque certificates in the pubs using their phone and the more scans they make, the more prizes they win. Download the CaskFinder App to join the fun!
