The accommodation

This traditional stone and brick built barn has been converted to retain many of its original features. Exposed beams, slate floors and under-floor heating give an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation.

Ground Floor - Entrance hall leading to open plan kitchen and sitting area, two bedrooms (a twin and a family room with en-suite wet room) and house bathroom with shower over bath. Upstairs - a twin bedroom.

Fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, electric oven, iron and ironing board, television with dvd player, gas woodburning stove for cooler nights, parking area for three cars. Patio area with garden furniture. Heating, bed linen and towels included, travel cot and high chair available.

Please note bed and breakfast can be booked also from the cottages. For breakfast we serve a choice of fresh fruit, free range eggs from the farm, locally produced meat from the award-winning butcher in Monmouth and homemade preserves.

The location

Situated in the heart of rural Monmouthshire on a working farm but yet only 5 miles from the bustling, medieval town of Monmouth and 2 miles from the famous Rolls golf course.

A two minute walk to the highest point behind the farm will guarantee you breathtaking views of the Sugar Loaf, Black Mountains and surrounding rolling countryside.

Visit the magnificent border castles, join in the many outdoor sports or simply stay at home and relax for a few days.

Ideally placed - head south to explore the Wye Valley or north to the contrasting hills of the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains.

Our area

Take our individually tailored walk from the Farm which takes you through the church where Charles Rolls is buried or join the Offa's Dyke walk which is approximately 2 miles away. For a more strenuous walk there is the Skirrid and Sugar Loaf mountain near Abergavenny or Table Mountain near Crickhowell all have fantastic views from the top.

Nearby are lots of great activities with canoeing on the magnificent River Wye and off road cycling in the Forest of Dean for all ability levels. Bikes can be hired from Pedalabikeaway. 'Go Ape' is also situated in the Forest of Dean for the more adventurous.

For a night out Monmouth offers both the Blake Theatre and the Savoy theatre and cinema (the oldest theatre in Wales)

Warwicks in Llantilio Crossenny (open Wednesdays to Sundays) is just 3 miles and The Stonemill Restaurant miles - both to be recommended. There are many eateries in Monmouth and if you want to venture slightly further for a special occasion visit the acclaimed Walnut Tree and The Hardwick, both near Abergavenny or the Michelin starred restaurant The Whitebrook.

Monmouth has a Waitrose, an M&S Food, a couple of good butchers and an excellent greengrocer.
