Kittys Orchard Wild Meadow b (Julie Smith)

Book Tickets Online


Kitty's Orchard contains a tranquil woodland and flower-rich meadow. It's a hidden gem tucked away in the heart of Monmouthshire near Usk. You'll find bluebells and ground ivy in the woodland, and a floral feast in the meadow; a perfect spot for summer picnics.

It is thought the name of the orchard comes from a horse that was once stabled here in the 19th century. Discover more about the flora, fauna and history of Kitty's Orchard on the Gwent Wildlife Trust page (who manage the site).
