Monmouthshire Holiday Cottage
This gorgeous country cottage providing self-catering accommodation for up to 4 people in 2 bedrooms is situated in the village of Itton, amidst the glorious countryside of Monmouthshire, Wales. It is ideally placed to explore the Wye Valley, Vale of Usk and Forest of Dean and is only 3 miles from the lively border town of Chepstow described as the true gateway to Wales. There are an abundance of activities and attractions in this part of Wales from walking, cycling, golf, historic castles to having a flutter at Chepstow Races which holds regular meetings and is host to the Welsh Grand National.
A superb destination for walkers - the cottage is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and Offas Dyke and the Wye Valley walk are not far away as well as many more footpaths on the doorstep to choose from. The owner is a keen walker and the transport to and from walking points can be negotiated at an extra cost. The Forest of Dean is considered to be one of the best mountain bike areas in the country and there are over a dozen golf courses in the area, including The Celtic Manor, host to the Ryder Cup 2010, and the famous Rolls of Monmouth. Canoeing, Archery and the National Diving Centre are also within easy reach. For local historic interest, the castles of Chepstow, Caldicot and Raglan are all but a few miles away including the famous Tintern Abbey beloved by Wordsworth.
If you are looking for a mix of culture, shopping and outdoor pursuits for whatever age, then Monmouthshire cottage is for you; the major cities of Cardiff and Bristol are less than 45 minutes by car and offer unique attractions, top class entertainment and quality shopping with a difference.
