Set in an acre of private land. The barn which is named after the lovely farmer who lived and worked the surrounding land, has been transformed from a once modest shepherd’s cottage. Retaining all the charm and features of an old property, warming oak beams, dry stone walls.

Well located to explore the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean in one direction and the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons in the other. Located just 20 minutes from the Severn Bridge, with easy access to Cardiff, Monmouth, Usk and Abergavenny, perfect for the country shows and food festivals throughout the year. In the Welsh borderlands you will find Tintern Abbey, Chepstow Castle, The Roman Fortress in Caerleon are all within easy reach The Big Pit is also well worth a trip with children, (free of charge), a chance to head underground in a real mine. Leisure facilities: private hot tub.

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!

Angela, 3rd June 2019

Jack's Barn is an absolute gem, especially if you have dogs. It was everything we wanted for a holiday with the dogs. It was great to open the back door and let them roam as the property is fully enclosed but with enough outside space to wipe them down. The close canal walk is a must and a 30 minute walk to the wharf and with dogs off lead. 2 closeRead more pubs is a bonus and the enjoyment of a hot tub at the end of a long hike is bliss. I would highly recommend this cottage and we will be back. Hide

Lucy, 20th May 2019

We had an idyllic 4 night stay at Jack's Barn. Although the weather made it amazing (so lucky!) we can't take away from how fantastic the property and location were. Our two dogs were in heaven running around the fully secure garden (I demand a recount - it must be more like two acres). We loved the hot tub, the local walks along the canal, and theRead more pub just down the road. Can't recommend highly enough and we'll definitely be back Hide

Andrew, 13th May 2019

We love our cottage holidays with our dogs, this was by far the best we have been to, and would recommend it.was a perfect couple of days away, will definitely be going back. Give it a go you wont be disappointed

Melissa, 26th April 2019

Lovely and quaint barn with a great garden for the pooches to enjoy. The views and location of the barn is beautiful. A little home from home with lovely attention to detail. Would definitely return as loved every minute of being here! Great start location for many surrounding walks and great hot tub to unwind in after the adventures!

Kate, 12th April 2019

We spent the most wonderful week here. The location is stunning and the cottage, although small, is comfortable and cosy. But it is the garden and the hot tub that really make this accommodation outstanding. Our dog adored running around the garden, which is entirely secure. And we spent hours outside enjoying all that this cottage has to offer. FoRead morer keen walkers, there are a multitude of walks nearby that would suit all ages and abilities. Hide

Richard, 25th March 2019

We had an amazing stay at Jack's Barn - so quiet and peaceful with loads of room for Heidi, our GSD. There is nothing the owner hasn't thought of to ensure a perfect break - we shall be back for sure!!

Jacki, 1st March 2019

A little smaller than we were expecting. Great secure land for dogs. Brilliant location, with pubs and canal walk nearby.

Paul, 22nd February 2019

Wonderful in every way

Greg, 11th February 2019

Excellent, as our previous stay.

Diana, 8th February 2019

Lovely location house quite compact, fantastic for the dog and close to the canal and plenty of footpaths.

Sharon, 28th December 2018

So we have a teenager and a black lab and the pair of them couldnt have been happier! Before wed even left wed booked to return (seriously!). Its doggy paradise! The area is stock proofed so we could chill in the hot tub and the dog was free to roam. The cottage was just lovely, decorated for Christmas but not a bit of tinsel to be seen (hurrah!)

Stacey , 10th December 2018

Jack's barn was the most perfect, cosy hideaway for us to spend our December honeymoon in. The pub at the end of the road was especially lovely too (and definitely NOT half a mile away). The only gripe we had was the directions to the property - we had to get in touch with the property owner because the instructions we were sent via email were no wRead morehere near adequate, especially when arriving in the dark.

Tim, 26th October 2018

An absolute gem of a place!!! The attention to detail - beautifully presented and lovely welcome treat! As a family we thoroughly enjoyed - including our dog!!! We felt totally relaxed - a beautiful cottage - we will definitely be returning.

Greg, 8th October 2018

Great break for us and our 2 Labradors. If youre a dog owner and want to relax with them then the security of the grounds, the privacy, the character of the Barn and the hot tub relaxation are for you. Well be returning soon.

lisa, 28th September 2018

Cant fault the location its beautiful, a well presented cosy cottage, but there should be more little touches we werent left with much basics. Its rather pricey for just 2 nights as your paying the 3 night premium - but we had a lovely honeymoon thank you

Ann, 24th September 2018

Absolutely amazing place, really does have the WOW factor. Perfect for fur babies with fully enclosed huge garden. The hot tub was so relaxing. The owners really have thought of everything

Emma, 10th September 2018

Views that never get old. The biggest, darkest, sky full of stars. Huge, secure garden for dogs to explore while the humans relax in the hot hub.

Gavin, 10th August 2018

Jack's cottage is a small idyllic cottage, perfect for romantic getaways or a small family. The grounds are extensive - perfect for letting furry family members run around. We made great use of the hot tub during the day and for stargazing a night. The location is great for walks in the hills and nearby canal, as well as for eating out at Hardwick Read moreand Walnut Tree Inn. Our host, Kath was very helpful whilst respecting our privacy. A great holiday and we intend to return! Hide

Steve, 9th July 2018

Jacks Barn provides relaxation for the mind body and soul. The setting is wonderful, so much secure land for our 15 month old Labrador to run and explore. She just loved it. Very quantill and restful x

Jade, 2nd July 2018

Great & easy to use.

Keri, 29th June 2018

Jacks barn is wonderful. This was our second visit and we enjoyed it just as much as our first time. Great for exploring Brecon Beacons and then relaxing in the welcoming hot tub. Love being in the middle of nowhere with short walk to dog friendly excellent Horseshoe Pub. Will be back

Shelley, 18th June 2018

Absolutely Amazing location, completely cut off from the outside world, the buildings and gardens are immaculate and so well thought out. The inside of Jacks Barn is spotless, when reading the reviews I noticed that it was a very dog friendly place, however as non dog owners you would have absolutely no idea as its so clean, if you are a dog owner Read moreits perfect to take your dog also. The welcome of Fresh eggs and welsh cakes was a lovely touch and much appreciated! Thanks so much for having us! Hide
