Secluded property overlooking open countryside within the grounds of the owners’ home, comfortably finished with spacious single storey accommodation, ideal for relaxing after a day exploring. The garden also makes a great playground for children, and our croquet lawn and fenced paddock make perfect places to let off steam.

The tiny hamlet of Welsh Newton Common is situated between the beautiful Monnow and Wye Valleys amidst the borderlands of England and Wales. It is close to Offa’s Dyke and the attractive market town of Monmouth with its mixture of elegant Georgian mansions and Victorian courtyards, offering excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. For the more energetic there is great walking and cycling available from your door, including walks along Offa’s Dyke, the Wye and Monnow Valleys and the Forest of Dean, as well as horse riding and canoeing nearby. The area is also rich in heritage, with many castles including Monmouth, Goodrich & Raglan Castles, and numerous beautiful churches including the remains of the stunning Tintern Abbey just half an hour away. Other attractions include Clearwell Castle and Caves, Puzzle Wood, Symonds Yat, Monmouth Activity Centre and Hereford with its beautiful cathedral, excellent shopping and of course the Mappa Mundi.

Set on the edge of the valley above Monmouth, the property boasts breathtaking views stretching across the Wye Valley and to the Black Mountains. Your front entrance leads you into a simple breakfast room with sofa and desk, table and chairs - the perfect place for a lazy breakfast enjoying the morning sun. This leads into the spacious, comfortable sitting room with its range of family games, books and DVDs for all ages and tastes: a cosy room for getting together and enjoying a movie or putting your feet up after a day’s walking. The kitchen is the hub of this home, welcoming the best of chefs: it’s well-equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, large fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer - and both a cafetiere and coffee filter machine! A large farmhouse table and chairs invite you to enjoy a hearty meal and linger on into the evening – unless of course you decide to sit outside and watch the sun go down.

When the day is done this single storey accommodation has three bedrooms: one spacious double with TV and en-suite bathroom with large corner shower, WC and basin; one twin made up of two adjoining single rooms with an open doorway between them; and one large twin. All bedrooms have French doors opening to courtyards that surround the property. There is also a family bathroom with a shower over the luxurious corner bath, basin and WC.

Heading outside, you can relax over breakfast or an evening barbecue watching the sun set, play croquet on the large flat lawn outside the cottage or explore the grounds and take in the wildlife (we have masses of rabbits, squirrels & hundreds of birds – including majestic buzzards which soar proudly over their domain), ponds and woodland.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

Lovely place to stay with super views and great accommodation. Ideal location for visiting Monmouth, Brecon Beacons and the Malvern Hills etc. Victoria and Nagi were very helpful and welcoming. Our two Labradors loved having the paddock to run and play in - I only wish we could have rolled it up and taken it home!

What a brilliant place couldn't ask for a nicer cottage or place this has got to be one of the nicest places we have been, we will certainly go again. Everything was perfect. Thank you to our hosts who were most friendly and helpful.

A lovely cottage in an outstanding location with a great host with friendly dogs, cats, kid goats, and other animals. You are in the middle of no where so you will need your own transport to get around. The first day we arrived we had a BBQ and all you could hear were the birds singing and burgers cooking a fantastic time away from a busy home lifeRead more. Hide

Amazing holiday! Beautiful house and surroundings, lovely owner who was very helpful. Lots todo nearby and very cute animal neighbours to play with! The goats were a big hit with out family. Lovely place to go for a multi ge era toon stay, we will be back soon!

Reviewed by Jill, 29th September 2017

The cottage is very spacious - an unusual U-shape - with the toilet/bathroom facilities between 2 of the bedrooms, leaving the other bedroom on the opposite side of the kitchen/morning room and lounge. I was a little concerned as there are a few small steps inside and my mother has a walking frame and is quite unsteady on her feet so I thought she Read morewould struggle but she didn't. There is also a small step up to the main door but she managed to negotiate that too. Hide

Wonderful place to stay, perfect with dogs and children, and the views are beautiful. Lots to do nearby as well and the goats and ducks were great for the kids to see.

Reviewed by Louise, 21st July 2017

The property was in a nice location and very quiet. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. The kids loved seeing the Pygmy goats. We found the town of Monmouth lovely and we also drove to the Brecon Beacons which is stunning! Wifi is non existent at the property so I would recommend planning your days out prior to the holiday.
