This lovingly restored bothy sleeps two guests and two dogs in comfort amongst idyllic countryside with views across the Usk Valley. The interior is full of charming country style, thoughtfully put together to create a welcoming space, while French doors frame the magnificent surroundings. For those looking to get away from it all and take in peaceful tranquillity in the Welsh scenery, then this retreat offers the perfect holiday.

This enchanting property boasts an airy interior with calming spaces, neutral furnishings and light-filled rooms. Share memories over a glass of bubbles in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, where you can flop onto the sofa and warm chilly feet in front of the flickering wood burner. The fully-equipped kitchen is perfect for pottering in while you keep an eye on the dinner baking in the oven. If weather permits, throw some bricks on the BBQ and tuck into a chargrilled banquet while watching the sunset over the hilltops. Finish off your day settled on the outdoor chairs while working through a few pages of the latest thriller. At bedtime, a double bedroom offers sumptuous furnishings, and a double sofa bed can be made upon request.

If you love the great outdoors, you’ll love this property. Take a stroll through the well-established ancient apple orchard, which sits on the grounds of the home, or take to one of the many footpaths to uncover Wye Valley’s glorious walking routes.

The cottage could not have been in a more scenic position, the only problem is the car park.You have to walk through the orchard, which is only a short distance but the path is made of stone flags which are not very even and could be a problem for people with walking difficulties?

Beautiful little cottage in the countryside. It was perfect for a weekend exploring the area, and the log burner kept us warm when the rain poured. We were very grateful for the scones, eggs, milk and welshcakes left for us. The cottage itself was well equipped, very clean and as per the photos. Would recommend.
