The cutest of cottages facing the River Usk, newly renovated it’s fresh as a daisy inside, with gorgeous handmade kitchen, large wood burning stove and huge family friendly sofa for obligatory holiday loafing! Nestled on the banks of the Usk, known as the best river in Wales for brown trout fishing, with an impressively engineered Chainbridge close by.

This is a beautiful Welsh bolthole, perfect for two, yet thoughtfully designed and very family-friendly for up to four. There are two country pubs approx. 1 mile away that serve good homemade food, and are a perfect alternative to the local pub across the river (this is currently under-going renovations). Set in the rolling Monmouthshire countryside, the cottage is well placed for exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park, a haven for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers, as well as pottering around the market towns and feasting on the local fayre which has helped give Monmouthshire its status as the food county of Wales. The area is good for cycling and bike hire is available locally.

The cottage offers TWO bedrooms: 1 king-size bedroom, 1 twin bedroom. Bathroom: with shower over bath and WC on the ground floor . Lounge/kitchen/diner: open plan with woodburner, (first basket of logs included) Smart TV and DVD. Kitchen area with electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. Outside: enclosed private patio area with seating, fire pit and BBQ. Bike storage available.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

SLEEPS 4 + 1: King-size bedroom with crisp bedlinen, twin bedroom with views across the River Usk. Downstairs bathroom with bath, over head shower, basin, loo. Towels included.

RELAXING: Open plan sitting room / dining room, with soft seating, tv, dvd, wi-fi, central heating, log burning stove, basket of logs on arrival.

Little Otter Cottage is cute and cosy and our hosts were welcoming and friendly. The kitchen is well-equipped and there's a nice-sized and enclosed garden that was perfect for our dog to explore safely. It's set in beautiful countryside and feels like a real retreat. We had a wonderful time and would happily go back.

Property was lovely and had everything you need. Location wise it's quite a drive to get to amenities and shops for your food etc... If you are looking for a hideaway for a weekend it's the perfect place, however we did find that with the rain alot of the roads were flooded and the river behind. This is not a fault to the owners but something to deRead morefinitely bear in mind. All in all a lovely stay. Hide

The cottage is situated in a lovely, peaceful setting, right beside the River Usk. It is spotlessly clean throughout.

Pretty cosy cottage modernised well inside and lose to lots of lovely towns and historic sites including Raglan castle and Usk nearby with lovely flowers and cafes. Close to the river but not easy to access but to view. A little small downstairs if more than two of you.

Very comfortable cottage in an ideal setting. Lots of interesting and dog friendly places close by plus walking from the cottage. Usk worth at least one visit and is the start of a good circular walk which takes in the Castle. Lots of places to sit in the garden of the cottage. Very friendly area.
