Robin's Barn is a pretty converted stone barn with a stunning view over the Wye Valley in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. It is situated next door to the owners' secluded home, in a tiny hamlet and reached by a private driveway. The nearest village of Penallt which has a pub and a historic 13th century church is 1 mile away. It is ideal for 2 or 3 people. The cosy cottage is well equipped and an attractive spiral staircase leads from the open plan beamed living area with woodburning stove to the 2 bedroomed upstairs accommodation consisting of a double bedroom and small single. The patio enjoys the glorious view and the cottage is an ideal base for walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers. It is dog friendly, with paths leading from the door and the local good food pub is a short stroll away. There is an abundance of wildlife to enjoy from the comfort of Robin's Barn, including deer, badgers, foxes, buzzards, owls and woodpeckers. Both Offa's Dyke path and the Wye Valley Walk are accessible from Robin's Barn without the need of a car! The Usk Valley, Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and Forest of Dean are all within easy reach as is Symonds Yat, famous for its resident peregrine falcons and stunning views over the Wye Valley. There are many sites of historic interest, the numerous castles built to defend the English - Welsh border, abbeys of which the most famous is Tintern, immortalised by the poet William Wordsworth just 5 miles away. Robin's Barn, in the heart of the Wye Valley is 5 miles from the little market town of Monmouth, with its beautiful medieval bridge.
