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.

About this location

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.


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.
