WE WILL CLOSE ON 30th NOVEMBER Reopening mid-March 2020. Wake up to the sounds of birds and on a nice day breakfast on the spacious south facing Deck at Rough Pastures. (some 35 different bird varieties have been seen here). It is a self-contained apartment set in a rural setting. The property overlooks the Wye Valley and is close to the Forest of Dean, the land of Myths and Legends. The house is set in 5 acres of woodland and garden with fantastic walks, cycle rides, bird watching, and views. Our Bluebell woods are fantastic in spring. Located on the Historic Welsh border, it is a part of the main house which is built around a several hundred years old cottage, standing on the site of the battle of Craig-Y-Dorth (Circa 1404). The area is designated “of Outstanding Natural Beauty”. It is ...WE WILL CLOSE ON 30th NOVEMBER Reopening mid-March 2020.

Located on the Historic Welsh border, it is a part of the main house which is built around a several hundred years old cottage, standing on the site of the battle of Craig-Y-Dorth (Circa 1404). The area is designated “of Outstanding Natural Beauty”. It is in easy reach of a number of Castles and Ruins including Raglan and Chepstow Castles as well as the famous Tintern Abbey. The county town of Monmouth (3 miles) is an ancient market town steeped in history. A little further afield there are numerous historic towns and villages to visit. The Celtic Manor Resort and Spa with world class golfing facilities is within 25 minutes’ drive – with other excellent golf courses and Spa facilities available in nearer proximities. Superb eating out facilities for all budgets and tastes abound in the area. Access is independent of the main house via its own gravel drive and external stairs leading to the large south facing deck/ veranda and thence into a spacious open plan living room, equipped with Sky TV and wi-fi internet. The fully equipped kitchen has a fridge-freezer, dishwasher, 4 hob electric stove, and microwave. There is a gas barbeque available for guests’ use on the Deck. In summer the Deck acts as an extended living room, presenting a perfect ring side lounging area to watch and listen to the wildlife finding their night time roost at the end of the day. The double bedroom has a recently installed modern en-suite bathroom with shower. The apartment is ideal for two people and a sofa bed in the living room is comfortable for a child or young person. The grounds are frequented by diverse wildlife including wild deer, many species of birds, rabbits etc. Red kites and buzzards frequent the area and we were recently visited by a Peregrine Falcon. Forest walks and cycle trails are plentiful in the surrounding countryside and the views are a wonderful antidote to today’s frantic workaday world. (Access to washing and drying facilities is available in the main house by arrangement) More
