Everything a holiday cottage should be. Beautifully decorated, impeccably set out, a touch of country charm in a unique and detatched location. Well located to explore the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean in one direction and the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons in the other....relaxation is pretty much guaranteed!

Pass the country pub as you drive down the lane, not quite knowing what to expect, then turn in and prepare to be very pleasantly surprised. Jack's Barn, named after the lovely farmer who lived and worked the surrounding land has been transformed from a once modest shepherds cottage to a top notch, luxury holiday home. Retaining all the charm and features of an old property, warming oak beams, dry stone walls, with tasteful contemporary additions, such as the brand new private and bubbly hot tub (included within the price) and wood burning stove.

Set in an acre of private land, the only house you can even glimpse in the distance is the owners roof top, available to help should you need them and happy to leave you in peace if you prefer. Offering the best of both worlds, Jack's Barn is just 20 minutes from the Severn Bridge, with easy access to Cardiff, Monmouth, Usk & Abergavenny, perfect for the country shows and food festivals throughout the year.

Downstairs is open plan, with travertine stone floor, baskets of logs for the woodburning stove, linen covered armchairs and sofa, as well as a farmhouse dining table and shaker style kitchen. Obliging chickens from the owner's farm will leave you some eggs and there a few other lovely welcoming goodies on arrival too.Upstairs you'll find an elegantly presented king-size bedroom, plus a cosy twin bedroom, each freshly decorated with Laura Ashley prints and Bronte throws. There is also an upstairs contemporary bathroom, with bath, over head shower, loo and basin. For convenience there is a downstairs loo and basin too.

Outside, you'll be thrilled by the size of the garden, well fenced and safe for pets and children to explore, there are sheep gently grazing in the distance, ducks quacking in the pond (safely fenced) and a pretty terrace set within the ruins of the old barn, which houses an outside table and chairs, plus, of course the hot tub. There is also a utility room and separate bike store available, both lockable and secure. Pets, kids, families and friends will all love it here....or simply rent it for two and luxuriate in a wonderful romantic escape in the Welsh countryside sampling a Michelin restaurant along the way!

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

WALKING FROM THE DOOR: The Brecon & Monmouth Canal is very close at hand, with Goytre Whalf making a great morning stroll for the dog should you be bringing one or two! There is also a good local pub within 5 minutes walk of the property.

STRIDING & CYCLING OUT: For longer days out in the countryside, The Forest of Dean and Wye Valley are in one direction & the rest of the impressive Brecon Beacons National Park in the other so you'll be spoilt for choice! Home to the National Road Championships and included in the Tour of Britain in 2014, there are impressive road cycling routes around the lanes and equally great bike parks and off road routes in the Forest of Dean and Black Mountains.

TOWNS & VILLAGES: Abergavenny and Monmouth are both larger market towns within easy reach, weekly markets and a Waitrose supermarket for essentials! Abergavenny has a particularly good food festival each September and Monmouth has the best deli in the area.

CASTLES & CULTURE: The Welsh borderlands are full of myths and ancient relics. A trip to Tintern Abbey is well worth it and easily combined with a visit to Chepstow Castle, with the oldest castle doors left in Europe! The Roman Fortress in Caerleon is within easy reach and well worth a visit (free entry) and gives a pretty impressive vision of second century Roman Britain. The Big Pit is also well worth a trip with children, (free of charge), a chance to head underground in a real mine.

ROMANCE IN THE AIR: Jack's Barn is perfect for honeymoons and anniversary celebrations. There is even a nearby hot air balloon company, offering flights over the Vale of Usk and Wye Valley...champagne included!

FABULOUS FAYRE: Monmouthshire prides itself on being the Food County of Wales, and with nearby restaurants such as Michelin starred The Walnut Tree Inn, The Foxhunter, The Crown at Whitebrook, Hardwick and delicious high tea at The Angel, we reckon you'll agree! Even the indian takeaway in Monmouth is award winning!

SLEEPS 2 - 4: A king-size bedroom with crisp bedlinen, squishy duvet, lovely eiderdown and gorgeous views over the countryside. Plus, a twin bedroom with cosy woolly Bronte throws and cushions, alongside crisp bedlinen and duvets.

RELAXING: Stylish open plan living room with cream wood burning stove, a generous basket of logs, plus firelighters and kindling to get it going. Linen sofa and armchairs, television, dvd, a selection of dvd's and games available. Central heating throughout.

COOKING & DINING: A shaker style kitchen, complete with Denby china, modern electric cooker and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge. Farmhouse dining table seating four comfortably.

KEEPING CLEAN: An upstairs bathroom with bath, over bath shower, basin and loo. Towels included. A downstairs cloakroom with basin and loo. A self contained utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, drying racks and ample storage for muddy boots! There is in addition a lockable storage area for bikes.

PETS: Up to two well behaved and house trained pets are welcome at Jack's Barn.

STAYING CONNECTED: There is mobile signal on most networks at the Barn, wi-fi is available and there is also free wi-fi at the local pub within walking distance at the top of the lane. There is no landline.

Lovely accommodation. Brilliant views over the mountains. If you have dogs this is the one for you as the land which is enclosed and secure you can take your dogs for walks or just let them roam. Our 2 cocker spaniels loved every minute of it. Also there is an added bonus of the Jacuzzi which was great relaxing way to spend a lazy afternoon.

Had an amazing stay at this beautiful cottage. Location is perfect. Huge secure garden for the dog to run around. Unfortunately due to Covid we didnt get to go to the local pub but there was plenty of walks we could do. Rained a lot of our stay but did not ruin our break. The hot tub was a great addition too. 100% will be booking to stay here againRead more. Owner also lovely and very helpful. Hide
