Welcome back to Monmouthshire

The ‘stay local’ regulations have been lifted and travel between Wales & the rest of the UK & Ireland is now permitted. Self-contained accommodation, non-essential retail, outdoor hospitality & many outdoor attractions have also reopened, with take-out refreshments available in many places. Please check the latest Welsh Government guidance here : and plan your visit before setting off.

It's bluebell season in Monmouthshire, which is one of our favourite times of year. The woodland floors across the county are carpeted in blue from now until around mid-May, so it's the perfect time to visit. Here our Top Five Bluebell hotspots in Monmouthshire.

With more than 1,000 miles of public footpaths and two designated landscapes we've plenty of wide open space in stunning countryside to enjoy. From national trails to short circular walks in and around the Brecon Beacons National Park in the west, and the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the east. Visit our walking page to see all our routes or use our route search function to find short and circular walking routes starting / finishing in a specific location. Just enter a town or postcode for a list of walks starting and finishing there.

Make your promise to Wales before you visit and look out for the 'We're Good to Go' COVID-19 secure industry kitemark for assurance that the business is following government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, ensuring processes are in place to maintain cleanliness and aid physical distancing.

For forward planning, indoor hospitality, attractions, accommodation etc will all be allowed to reopen on May 17th (dependent on current Covid levels, and the new Welsh Gov signing off on it). This includes:
• All indoor accommodation, including hotels, B&Bs and Campsites with shared facilities
