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! Even the indian takeaway in Monmouth is award winning!

A peaceful and restful short stay for us and our dogs. Our third time at Jacks Barn and probably not the last. An ideal choice for dog owners with a large secure grassed area.

The cottage location is fantastic and the cottage is comfortable. Great for dogs due to the large fenced in garden and a superb hot tub to relax in (not the dogs...). We had a lovely Christmas stay here with family and friends dropping in to visit. There are lovely walks alongside the canal and from Pontypool Park up to the folly.

Lovely setting, cosy cottage. Excellent hot tub makes it just perfect ( does need a few hours to get to temperature) Really comfy beds, only neighbours are the sheep/cows. Amazing peace and quite.

Absolute amazing stay. Excellent for dogs also; the Garden is HUGE and secure. Lots of amazing walks within a short drive and nice to relax in the hot tub afterwards! Would definitely recommend staying here. Clean, cosy and relaxing - what more could you ask for!

We stayed at Jack's Barn for the August bank holiday weekend this year as a group of 2 couples - it was absolutely stunning! The barn is cosy but has everything you need, with the most amazing views. We enjoyed the canal path walk to the wharf with local ice cream, and ventured further out to walk the cats back and also visited the reservoir near URead moresk. Star gazing at night was incredible too and we spotted a few shooting stars. Lovely space and amazing location, would definitely recommend! Hide

Jacks Barn is an wonderful location set within several acres of secured land. Outlook of beautiful Welsh countryside in all directions and view of canal and barrow boats. Our Labrador loves the open space and we love to play with her and say hello to neighbouring cows and sheep.

Jack's barn is a compact cottage in a glorious setting. Our dog loved the freedom of the fully enclosed garden and we loved the hot tub after a strenuous day's walking! We ate at the Horseshoe Inn every evening - a 7 minute stroll door to door. It was so peaceful there and relaxing - we loved it!

Stunning place. Just loved it

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

This is a VERY small property it should be pointed out that it is VERY 'cosy' for 4 people. My husband is 6ft tall and his feet hung off the end of the bed which has a wooden base in the main bedroom, the 2nd bedroom which has 2 single beds in it is very small, you can not close the door as the bed is in the way. The bathroom ceiling is so low thatRead more my husband could not stand up to go to the toilet without banging his head. We were booked Mon-Fri but stayed for 1 night only and then left. Hide

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
