  • Christine

    “Ideally located, just a ten minute walk into the centre of Monmouth, John’s Lookout was perfect for us.”

    Just about everything you could possibly need was available in the house, it was comfortable and clean and we would definitely recommend it to family and friends.

The property

Perched on the banks on the rivers Monnow and Wye, within the idyllic Welsh town of Monmouth, you will find the beautifully appointed cottage of John's Lookout.

Newly built to a high standard, this eco-friendly dwelling is perfect for a group getaway for six.

Enter into this reverse-level accommodation and discover a fabulous open-plan living space, boasting beautiful high ceilings with exposed wood beams, and emanating light from its Velux windows.

Impress guests with your best culinary skills as you take to the chic and contemporary white kitchen, home to a sea of sleek electrical appliances and handy utensils.

Take a seat at the attractive dining table and enjoy a delicious group dinner, as you crack open a bottle of fizz and exchange your most memorable moments from the holiday so far.

Cross the solid oak floors to the sitting area and allow yourself sink deep into the plush grey sofa, snuggling up to loved ones as you watch an entertaining movie on the Smart TV.

Venture down the staircase to find three well-decorated bedrooms consisting of a bunk room and two doubles, one of which benefits from a tranquil en-suite wet room.

Indulge in some 'you' time as you while away the hours with a deep soak in the spacious tub that sits peacefully within the ground-floor bathroom.

Make the most of warm summer days out in the courtyard as you delight in lunch alfresco at the outdoor seating area, before climbing the open-tread stairs up to the first floor garden and lounging on the lawn as you bask in the sunshine.

Take advantage of this fantastic setting as you explore the very best that both Wales and England have to offer, embarking on action-packed adventures in the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the nearby Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons).

Lose yourself on a scenic woodland walk through the Forest of Dean, and discover the enchanting 11th century ruins of Goodrich Castle.

Wander the grounds of the imposing 15th century fortress of Raglan Castle and uncover the ruins of the Cistercian abbey, close to the unspoilt landscapes of Offa’s Dyke.

Spend the day in the town of Chepstow and learn of the rich local history of Chepstow Museum, before taking a tour of Chepstow Castle.

Further afield, the Brecon Beacon National Park is home to some of the finest hiking routes in the area, such as Craig-Gwaun-Taf and Fan Fawr Summit.

Visit the nearby city of Newport where you can enjoy a spot of shopping and admire breath-taking art at Newport Museum and Art Gallery, before returning to Monmouth for a refreshing pint down at the local pub.

Grab dinner at one of the many well-established restaurants within the area, or pick up ingredients from the supermarket for a hearty home-cooked dinner back at the cottage.

Live unforgettable moments with your loved ones on a exciting escape to John's Lookout.

About the location


Ross-on-Wye 10 miles; Usk, 14.5 miles; Abergavenny 18.5 miles.

An intriguing market town on the border between Wales and England and close to the exceptional Offa’s Dyke, this wonderful town combines old and new, from the old castle ruins to the vibrant weekly market. Located at the confluence of 3 rivers – the Wye, the Monnow and the Trothy, it is an excellent base to enjoy river boating, scenic walks and a little shopping too, or to sit and relax on the edge of the river and watch the rowers who regularly race and practise their skills. Monmouth is most famous as the birthplace of Henry V and offers the opportunity to see historic buildings, the preserved medieval 13th century bridge over the river Monnow (the only one of its kind in Britain) and the famous Nelson Garden. This is truly a small town with a huge array of interesting sights to visit. The surrounding areas are steeped in history too and short drives will take you to nearby Usk, Abergavenny, Ross-on-Wye and even into the spectacular Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons), Forest of Dean and Wye Valley. A perfect location with so much to see for all ages.
