In the prettiest of farm settings you would never guess you were just twenty minutes from the Severn Bridge. Rolling countryside and castles galore, all easily explored from the cosiest of huts.

Perfectly nestled between the Wye Valley in one direction and the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park in the other, there's plenty to head out and explore with walks from the door including a stroll down the lane to the local pub. Fantastic fishing nearby on the River Usk, with day permits available in Usk. Kayaking and Canoeing readily available on the River Wye. There are castles littered around the Monmouthshire countryside, Raglan Castle is just a few short miles away, or a day trip around the trio of Whitecastle, Grosmont and Skenfrith Castles.

WALKING & BIKING: Fabulous walks from the door, including a stroll down the lane to the local pub. Discover the Brecon Beacons National Park in one direction, and the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean in the other. Plenty of trails for the most adventurous of travellers.

HISTORIC WALES: There are castles almost littered around the Monmouthshire countryside, Raglan Castle is just a few short miles away, or a day trip around the trio of Whitecastle, Grosmont and Skenfrith Castles is worthwhile and makes a great cycle ride, ending with a pint or two at The Bell at Skenfrith. Majestic Tintern Abbey and Chepstow Castle , or the impressive Roman sites at both Caerleon & Caerwent are also worthy of a visit.

FISHING & SPLASHING: Fantastic fishing nearby on the River Usk, with day permits available from local store, Sweets in Usk. Kayaking and Canoeing readily available on the River Wye.

FUN IN THE FOREST: The Forest of Dean is within easy reach, with Go Ape, offering tree top adventures for the brave and Segway hire for those preferring to explore on wheels! Perfect for picnics by the lake, mountain bike (hire available) and walking trials through the woods. Historic Clearwell Caves within the Forest are giant tin mining caverns well worth a visit & the enchanting Puzzlewood has provided the backdrop for scenes from the recent Star Wars, Dr Who and Harry Potter, as well as having provided plentiful inspiration for JRR Tolkien.

FODDER & FEAST: Usk Farmers Market every second Saturday is one of the best in Wales, Monmouth is on the other Saturdays. Great country pubs either by foot, or plenty of choice within 10 minutes drive including popular local, The Raglan Arms. Michelin star restaurants The Walnut Tree in Abergavenny and The Whitebrook in the Wye Valley, plus the Hardwick and Foxhunter all well worth a try.

FAB FOR FESTIVALS: Well placed for day trips to the Hay Literary Festival, Green Man music festival, Abergavenny Food Festival, as well as a busy racing calendar at Chepstow Racecourse, including the Welsh Grand National.

We had a lovely relaxing stay at the Cwtch. The owners Rachel and Haydn are a very nice couple who came to introduce themselves but then stayed at a distance. We are from the area originally and it was nice to revisit some of the places of interest and visit some new ones in the beautiful vale of Usk and the Wye Valley. The Cwtch has everything youRead more need for a relaxing holiday and our Beagle Jerry enjoyed sniffing the ample enclosed garden. We will be back. Hide
