Welsh Newton is a tiny hamlet located near to Monnow and the breathtaking Wye Valleys. Built in the 1600's this welcoming property is built from stone and has been converted from a working barn into a pretty holiday cottage. The house has been painstakingly refurbished to create comfortable, cosy country accommodation. There are 2 bedrooms one of which is a double and the other is a twin bedroom. Both bedrooms have en suite bathrooms. There's a large open plan living space that is comprised of an equipped kitchen, breakfast area and airy sitting room. Oak beams are spread throughout the property to give it a cottage feel.

Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Stairgate. Off road parking for 2 cars. Lawned garden with furniture. Two well-behaved pets welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop and pub 3 miles.

Region: Herefordshire offers visitors the chance to journey through lush green countryside, enjoying splendid black-and-white timbered villages, a magnificent cathedral city, a fairytale Georgian castle at Eastnor or books galore in famous Hay-on-Wye.
Town: Welsh Newton is close to the English and Welsh borders and to the town of Monmouth. If walking is your hobby then Welsh Newton is a good choice for you because there are lots of exciting walking routes to take including the famous Offa's Dyke. You could also opt for guided trips through the lush land of the Monnow Valleys. The town of Monmouth is 4 miles away and has a great deal to offer. Expect to see refined Georgian houses and decorative courtyards built in Victorian times dotted around the town. Of course, there's many quality shops to visit in Monmouth too and a good smattering of pubs and restaurants to try out through your holiday.

First there's the drive up the Wye Valley. Then up to the wood to exercise the dog - and you can see the whole of England and Wales, or so it seems. The cottage is nicely basic (which is what we wanted) and the grounds and the owners very pleasant. The window blinds stick in the memory as being quite a challenge.
Very Clean and Well Equipped

Left on 09/15/2010 for a stay in June 2010 | soper review
Very nice accomodation far enough away but close to a small town with enough shops to be able to buy your needs
The grounds were large with a stream and large trees and
beside a large manor house.
Plenty of places to visit and quite a few restaurants and pubs. Very relaxing and accomodation excellent and very modern. Two en suites means you are not waiting to wash
Lovely, peaceful area and lovely cottage 1st class

Friendly owners and dog - even our mad collie made friends with Star.
All faclities and equipment you could need
Dodgy ankle precluded our usual long distance treks but plenty of shorter walks (as short or long as you like) in woods, by rivers etc - Symonds Yat, Tintern just a couple. Plenty of tourist attractions for lazy days.
comfortable and well equipped
