******WINNER OF THE TRIP ADVISOR CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE 2014******

Rectory Cottage is a two bedroom self-catering modern cottage in the grounds of the 18th Century Old Rectory Bed & Breakfast. It is in an excellent location between Abergavenny, Raglan and Monmouth. The cottage has one double bedroom and one small bunk bedroom with adult sized beds.

The cottage has a private patio area with seating, a BBQ and a wok firepit. The patio leads onto the secure back garden with a trampoline and other outdoor toys for your children's use. We are very happy to accept dogs as long as they do not sleep on the carpeted areas or on the beds. There are chickens in the garden that can be shut away should they need to be. Egg collecting is encouraged but not chicken chasing!

The cottage is well equipped with a 37” flat-screen television, DVD player and plenty of board games and toys. We provide washing and drying facilities in the main house, a secure room for a bicycle and a freezer for a fish. Please note that although the cottage has wifi, the connection, due to our location, can be tempermental. We are very happy for guests to come into the main house to use a stronger connection.

We pride ourselves in ensuring that you have a relaxed and enjoyable stay. You will be provided with a welcome pack on arrival which consists of milk, homemade bread and our own eggs. The cottage itself is well equipped with everything to make your stay with us as easy and hassle free as possible. All linen is provided and should you require one, we can provide a travel cot and a high-chair.

Rectory Cottage is situated 600ft from the River Usk. The river edge is a Public footpath along the beautiful Usk Valley Walk. The cottage is within easy reach of the Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons National Park, Offa's Dyke, Llanthony Valley and the Wye Valley and we are also moments from Route 42 cycle route.

For food enthusiasts the Abergavenny Food Festival is held in September for which tickets need to be booked in advance. Also we are 5 minutes from Chef Stephen Terry's Restaurant, The Hardwick, and also only 20 minutes from the well known Restaurants, The Walnut Tree Inn where Shaun Hill is the chef and The Foxhunter. There are many delightful pubs within a few miles of the house too.

The Monmouthshire region

Situated 600ft from the River Usk, making it a great spot for fishing or equally perfect for a picnic on its banks.

The cottage is well positioned for exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park and Black Mountains in one direction, or The Forest of Dean and Wye Valley in the other, with Cardiff less than an hour away.

Abergavenny

Secluded it may be, but we're only a few minutes drive from the bustling market town of Abergavenny (the self-proclaimed 'Gateway to Wales') and the historic town of Monmouth.

"Idyllic retreat for families"

A great holiday flat ideal for two adults and two children.
The flat was clean throughout and very comfortable with full kitchen facilities.
The chickens and garden with trampoline were an added bonus!

Thank you for your lovely review, I do hope you can return soon.

"Amazing!!"

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Old Rectory couple of weeks ago, and what can I say it was brilliant. It was just what we wanted peaceful, tranquil and the scenery was just beautiful.
Kate the owner, was very accommodating, everything that we needed was in the cottage.
Town was a 10min drive which had an Aldi and then small small shops.
Overall it was great, and we would definitely go back again.
Thanks Kate!!

Thank you for your lovely comments. We hope to see you again soon!

"Relaxed and easy holiday."

A very nice and well put together holiday let. Owner's very attentive, friendly and welcomong. A lovely spot for dog walking and enjoying strolls along the river from your doorstep. If you don't have a dog and need one, owners dog Pepper more than happy to join you for your walk. Lots to do near by, but best part was doing less!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We hope you may be able to come and stay again.
Happy New Year.
Kate and Liz
