Between October and April it is strongly recommended that access should be with a 4WD or a large heavy car as the track can get very muddy during the winter. We also suggest that visitors always have a pair of wellies to hand when they arrive for the person who has to get out to open the gates on the track!

The property has been so well furnished and beautifully decorated that a "returnable bond" of £500 against unfair wear and tear is required on payment of the balance.

This would be the ideal spot for complete peace and quiet and for "getting away from it all" and a perfect family house for a special occasion or family reunion. The vale of Ewas is a wonderful location for walkers, with Offa's Dyke footpath only a mile or so away and many other footpaths including one across Hatterell Hill to the Llanthony Valley, where you can visit the famous ruins of Llanthony Priory.

LocationSouth Wales

Although smaller in size than other regions of Wales, this area still has a great selection of historical sites to visit and rolling countryside with a dramatic coastline. Perhaps best known for the impressive Brecon Beacons, this mountain range is very popular for those seeking an activity holiday with something to suit all, from mountain biking and caving to horse riding and star gazing events. The Vale of Glamorgan is worth a visit, with a 9 mile heritage coastal path not to mention the famous Barry Island with its vibrant amusement park which is all only a few miles from Cardiff.

Not just an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Wye Valley and the Vale of Usk combined can also boast having the most castles per square mile in Britain. In recognition of its revolutionary importance the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape is now a World Heritage Site and has a fascinating collection of ironworks, mines and a national museum.

Cardiff is perfect for a day of shopping and sight-seeing. The varied choice of entertainment ranges from live music venues, guided tours and art events. For a peaceful walk or nature spotting trip then the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal is a beautiful and isolated place to unwind.
