Big skies and wide reaching views of undulating fields and stunning Monmouthshire countryside, Fox and Hounds is an oasis of calm in an area teaming with natural beauty, with plenty of great activities and days out in very easy reach.

A gorgeous two-bedroom cottage, it has been stylishly restored as a calm and characterful retreat, idyllic for a romantic weekend, or base for the family holiday. Step through the door into a warm and soulful oak beamed dining room, toasty feet on arrival courtesy of the under floor heating. Sneak a peek at the wood burning stove warming the neighbouring sitting room, perfect for relaxing with a glass of red once you've explored.

Light floods through from the large windows at the rear, with well-equipped kitchen and light, bright bathroom flanking the stairs. Follow on up to the two bedrooms, a king-size en-suite and a family twin, which can easily be extended to sleep a third child if required.

Dogs are very welcome and will love it, babies and children catered for, with family games, handy cot, highchair and stair gate...keeping paws safely downstairs and toddlers secure at night upstairs. The garden is newly fenced, with outdoor furniture including firepit and bbq for the summer months, great for kicking back and taking in the views. There is a handy boot room, with washing machine, dryer and plenty of space for paws to be dried off and bikes to be stored.

From the door you can walk for miles, the Star Pub is an obvious destination, or take a moment of quiet reflection at Kilgwrrwg, an ancient local church only accessible by foot.

Sitting between the beautiful Brecon Beacons and River Wye, with the Black Mountains in easy reach there are bluebell trails, medieval castles, Roman ruins and of course a fair number of gently bleating sheep to more than entertain you for a week or two.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Beautiful cottage with fantastic views of the Welsh countryside. Comfortable spaces and quiet location, making it the ideal place for a peaceful city getaway. The house is only three hours away from London and close to fantastic walks in the Wye Valley. Well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and excellent bed linen. I was concerned that it was a dogRead more-friendly cottage, but the house was clean with no traces of previous people or pets. I would love to go back again. Hide

You wont be disappointed. The cottage is warm, comfortable and beautifully furnished. Plenty of equipment in the kitchen to cook a feast if you wanted. Waking up to the sounds of only the birds and lambs in the surrounding fields was heavenly. I could have stayed a lot longer! Thank you

We had a wonderful week at the Fox & Hounds Cottage in October. It was our first outing since the start of the pandemic, and we were apprehensive, but it was a great choice. Very clean, quite isolated, and we managed to bring everything we needed with us. The cottage is super: well equipped with necessities, great for the dogs, with wonderful walksRead more both straight out of the door and within a short drive. We had lovely walks and cosy evenings in front of the wood burner. We'll be back! Hide

It's pretty, very characterful and nicely contemporary. The hosts are friendly and helpful. The location is very rural, offering walks from the door and good views of the valley. It's located quite away from grocery shops and any other entertainment. Great for dog owners. Couple of decent pubs within a short drive. Nice log burner in the colder monRead moreths. A good retreat, which could benefit from some more TLC and a few more personal touches to make it shine. Hide
