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 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 fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

The cottage was beautiful and remote, just what we wanted. Very comfortable and tranquil. Being able to walk from the back door with the dogs was ideal. A true home from home, we will be back.

Terry, 24th August 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is fantastic and so is the location. We took our dog and found the garden, and especially the adjoining field, terrific. We would certainly come back.

Kathryn, 23rd July 2018

The cottage is in a lovely location with a secure garden that leads onto fields that you can walk from. The owner helpfully provides a number of recommendations in the welcome guide for walks and places to eat nearby. From the garden you can watch a variety of wildlife.

Jackie, 16th July 2018

The cottage is gorgeous and set in a wonderful, tranquil location. We enjoyed day trips in the area with plenty to see and do to keep us busy. The dogs loved the properly enclosed garden and local walks and in the forests nearby. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a peaceful holiday.

We loved the cosy feel of the cottage and its remote setting overlooking the fields. Our pup loved running around the garden which was safe and secure. We are such big foodies and loved the well appointed kitchen, cooking up breakfasts and dinners and eating out in the garden when the weather allowed. The bed was also super comfy, we slept like logRead mores. Would highly recommend this property to anybody looking to get away from it all for a while. We will be back. Hide
