Location description from owner
The South Wales 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.

“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. Kate
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! Kate
“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
