A delicious gem of a stone built 19th century cottage sleeping 3 near Usk. It has been completely refurbished to a 5 star standard and features a king-sized 5 ft bed. It adjoins a nature reserve and is in an elevated position above the banks of the river Usk. We have a suntrap terrace in a fully enclosed garden. We can arrange trout fishing (river Usk) or salmon fishing (river Wye) in season. It is right on the Usk Valley walk which includes stretches of riverbank with excellent wildlife including otters, herons, buzzards and more.

The National Cycle route 42 passes within yards and number 30 is nearby. A wide choice of pubs and award winning restaurants are nearby, including the foodie mecca of Abergavenny. Excellent location for visiting Tintern Abbey, Caerleon Roman remains, descending for coal into Big Pit and enjoying the ancient stone castles of Chepstow, Raglan and Skenfrith, the Brecon Beacons, the book town of Hay on Wye, boating on the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal at Goytre Wharf, walking, eating or simply chilling out.

There is one double bedroom and one single room. because the stairs or quite steep and twisting they are impossible to gate and therefore we do not accept toddlers but immobile babies and older children are welcome. For the same reason wobbly older folk should beware.

We have a good Tv and DVD and superfast broadband included in the rental.
Some mobile phones work well but some do not so we can offer a landline against your credit card if required.
