This spacious, single-storey property is all about space, freedom, light & fresh air! It's so large you won't be on top of one another, and there's lots of space outside to run around & let off steam. Visitors are greeted with a 'welcome pack' of essentials, including tea, coffee, milk and sugar. Keen cooks will find salt, pepper & a selection of herbs & spices, & we also supply basics such as washing up liquid, washing machine powder & cleaning materials. Set on the edge of the valley above Monmouth, the property boasts breathtaking views stretching across the Wye Valley and to the Black Mountains. The cottage sleeps 6 in 'proper' beds, plus there are 2 double sofa beds, one in the main bedroom & one in the sitting room; a travel cot is available by arrangement.

Keen cooks will find salt, pepper & a selection of herbs & spices, & we also supply basics such as washing up liquid, washing machine powder & cleaning materials. Set on the edge of the valley above Monmouth, the property boasts breathtaking views stretching across the Wye Valley and to the Black Mountains. The cottage sleeps 6 in 'proper' beds, plus there are 2 double sofa beds, one in the main bedroom & one in the sitting room; a travel cot is available by arrangement. There is one spacious double bedroom with TV & en-suite bathroom with large corner shower, WC & basin; one twin room made up of two adjoining single rooms with an open doorway between them; & one large twin with a standard single bed and a 4ft bed (small double). Each bedroom has French windows opening into one of the secluded courtyards that surround the cottage. There is also a family bathroom with a shower over the luxurious corner bath, basin & WC. A sunny entrance hall/breakfast room leads into the spacious sitting room with a range of family games, books & DVDs for all ages & tastes. There is wifi internet throughout the property. The kitchen is the hub of this home. It’s well-equipped with electric oven & hob, microwave, large fridge, freezer, washing machine & tumble dryer - and both a cafetiere & coffee filter machine! The outside area can be secured so that all but the most determined escape artist-dogs can run freely throughout the yard & large lawned area in front of the cottage - although we still need owners to ensure that they do not break into the fields with the livestock, of course! Guest access We are in a smallholding of 6.5 acres, which includes fields of livestock such as Pygmy goats, sheep, poultry, a horse & donkeys as well as broadleaf woodland, gardens & ponds. You are welcome to walk around the grounds but we do ask that dogs are kept under close control at all times and under NO circumstances must they be allowed loose in the paddocks or to chase any livestock, whether on our property or in neighbouring fields (although they will almost certainly enjoy rabbiting at the bottom of the garden!). You will have your own private area of garden with a picnic table, barbecue & large lawn where you can play croquet or badminton. Children will enjoy feeding Gilbert & George the Pygmy Goats, the small flock of Soay sheep, Boris & Bertha the geese and our mixed family of ducks and chickens, as well as the many large Koi carp in the pond in front of the main house. Other things to note We offer the option of booking a home cooked evening meal, using locally sourced produce wherever possible (most veg is from our own garden), and we are used to catering for specific diets such as gluten, dairy and nut free. We will send you more details of this when you book. More

About the neighbourhood
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 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.
Getting around
A car is essential for most people, but some visitors choose to book a vehicle with a driver for the duration of their stay. If you would like to do this please let us know and we will put you in touch with an excellent local company for both normal car hire and car-with-driver hire. There are lots of nice walks around the Common, but the nearest shops for all but very basic supplies are a 10-minute drive away in Monmouth.
