The Monmouthshire region

The Wye was recently voted the public's favourite river; no wonder - it winds through some of the UK's most spectacular scenery. The Wye Valley, covering parts of Monmouthshire, Herefordshire & Gloucestershire, is know as the birthplace of tourism as 18th century visitors were lured to the area with posters and etchings showing dramatic scenery and quaint villages. Today it is designated an Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty (AONB), containing stunning viewpoints, dramatic cliffs, tranquil woods, rolling meadows and rambling river paths that still casts a spell over its lucky visitors. Beside the countryside itself, there is an incredible amount of major historical landmarks (such as Chepstow Castle, Raglan Castle and Tintern Abbey) and a thriving culture scene.

Brockweir, the nearby village, boasts a good pub, which serves food, and (a little way up the hill from the village) a really good community shop with a café. It sells excellent bread, deli products, and all sorts of really good local produce, from meat to veg. The fine county town of Monmouth is ¼ hour’s drive, and Chepstow, for both the town or its race course, is the same distance in the other direction. The attractive small town of Newland, with its beautiful church, dubbed ‘the Cathedral of the Forest’ is close, and there is also a good pub there called The Ostrich. For enthusiasts of fine dining, The Crown at Whitebrook, with its Michelin-starred cooking, is a must.

Brockweir

Golf: For the professionals, The Celtic Manor (22 miles) on the outskirts of Newport is a world-class golf resort that hosted the Ryder Cup in 2010. Closer to home in Coleford is the Forest of Dean Golf Club (8 miles) and Forest Hills Golf Club (9 miles). Monmouth Golf Club (11 miles) is a fine 18 hole course with spectacular views over the Valley. There is also the famous Rolls of Monmouth Golf Club (15 miles) which is set around the spectacular stately home once owned by Charles Rolls of Rolls-Royce.

Walking - No doubt one of the great attractions of the area is the year-round walking, and many walks, short and long, are close at hand. The best known routes - Offa's Dyke Path and Wye Valley Walk - both pass through the village and it is a few moments walk from the cottage to join either.

Canoeing: A highlight of any visit to the Valley is canoeing or kayaking down the Wye on a warm summer's day. These can be rented in Monmouth or Symonds Yat.

Fishing: The Wye is renowned for it's fishing. Bigsweir Fishery (3 miles) own a beautiful 2 mile stretch of the Wye offering double bank fishing between March and October. Grange Springs Fishing Lakes (5 miles) and Big Well Fly Fishing (8 miles) offer lake based coarse and game fishing respectively.

For Children: Go Ape! (11 miles) is a great day out for children and adults alike. The ‘high-wire forest adventure’ involves following a giant obstacle course up in the trees using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels, together with zip lines, high ropes and swings.

Back on land and next to Go Ape is The Forest of Dean Family Cycle Trail which is a circular 11 mile cycle route through the beautiful Forest with numerous lakes providing great picnic spots.

“Amazing rural retreat”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2013

We stayed at Spring Cottage last week for our anniversary - and will definitely be going back! David made us incredibly welcome on our arrival. He gave us a great recommendation for a place to eat that evening, and some ideas for the rest of the week. The cottage itself was beautifully decorated and amazingly peaceful. I loved looking out over the woodland. Before we booked I read the reviews on here, and was a little worried about the road to the cottage. I had a chat with David prior to booking and he reassured me that as long as you are sensible it is perfectly easy to get up the hill. I have to say I am not quite sure what the other reviewer was talking about - as we managed it perfectly easily. I would definitely recommend Spring Cottage to anyone - although I don't want the whole world to know about it as otherwise it will be too difficult to book it again for our next trip! :)

“Amazing cottage with fantastic doorstep walks”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2013

We stayed for a week at Spring Cottage for the New Year, it was a superb location and the Cottage itself was exceptional standard. Everything that you require for a Cottage holiday was provided to the highest standard. It was clean, homely and hidden away in a delightful part of Brockweir. It was a pleasure to meet the owners, David and Violet, who lived next to Spring Cottage. As stated on thier website, the access road is very narrow with potholes, however, once the initial nervous drive upto the Cottage is completed for the first time you will soon navigate the roads, but well worth it when you arrive at Spring Cottage. Even though it was wet for the first part of the week we managed some great walks with our dog everyday - Tintern Abbey, the Devils Pulpit to name a few. The cottage had everything we needed and an easy 20 min walk to the local pub, The Brockweir Inn, which is very welcoming and offers excellent food. We highly recommend Spring Cottage and have no hesitation in returning in the not to distant future.

“Beautiful cottage in idyllic surroundings”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2013

We had a lovely stay in Spring Cottage for 3 nights, and can certainly recommend for future guests. I would ignore the negative comments of the first reviewer as our experience was wholly positive. True, the drive up the Underhill lane is very narrow so please take care driving - especially after dark. On the plus side, there is ample parking by the cottage and the views are excellent. The cottage is lovingly maintained inside, and the mixture of old and new is very well presented. You will feel right at home once you get the log burner on too! I would imagine it would be even better in Spring/Summer to take advantage of the garden and conservatory. Local walks are right on your doorstep, you can't go wrong. We'd recommend Sunday lunch in the Brockweir Country Inn at the foot of the hill; very friendly staff and locals and they server great local ales too. Another recommendation is the Anchor in Tintern right by the Abbey. Chepsow (for the castle and races) and Monmouth (market town) are also easily accessible and nice to explore. Overall, I would certainly recommend Spring Cottage to anyone looking for a base to explore the Wye Valley. Beautiful, tasteful, and very homely indeed.

“Secluded, peace and quiet, great walks, excellent accomodations for two”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2013

My wife and I (and dog) stayed here for the Christmas break and had a superb time. The cottage is really well located for river or hill walks literally out your front door. Brockweir is a one pub town (and only a pub!) that is lovely and a short 15 minute walk down the lane. Publican is kind and generous, people were really friendly - especially to dogs. The cottage is really well appointed for two. There is a sunroom that materially expands the size of the place in warm weather and would make this great for a family. Kitchen is one of the better ones my wife and I have seen for holiday cottages - well appointed and works well. One comment - but this is true for every holiday cottage - I would trade a kingdom for a sharp knife in the kitchen!! A generous supply of wood for the fire was much appreciated. This is a great cottage and a great part of the world to spend a week unwinding and walking - rain (if you don't mind, we don't) or shine. Highly recommended.

“A fun family holiday in a beautifully presented cottage”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2012

What a place, they seem to have thought of everything. It is hard to fault the place that is clean, well equipped and beautiful, the bonus was the play-room for kids. The woods are great for dens and camps and the house for some serious luxury and fun in the kitchen. There is so much to do in that part of the world and the cottage is great to get back to after a hectic day walking, kayaking or cycling.
