    “We had a great week.”

    The Old Stables were perfect with everything we needed together with a comfortable bed and a good shower! The accommodation is surrounded by picturesque countryside and the river close by. Excellent for walking. The owner Frances was available if we needed anything. She also invited us to visit her beautiful walled garden behind the house. Everything you could want for a peaceful stay.

The property

Resting about a mile away from the small village of Bettws Newydd in Monmouthshire, within the grounds of a rural country house, is this charming ground floor residence, recently converted from the old coachhouse stables. The Old Stables of coachhouse at Trostrey Lodge gives a unique location in this demi country paradise for two people for anyone wanting to walk miles along the River Usk, up the nearby hills such as the Skirrid, Sugar Loaf or the highest, Pen-Y-Fan You can visit five local castles: Skenfrith, Grosmont, Raglan, White Castle and Usk castle, we would also recommend the beautiful Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) for anyone walking. Leave your vehicle along the main drive of Trostrey Lodge before going round the corner of the coachhouse to the stone fronted home and into the open plan living space. There is up to the minute cooking on the electric oven, gas hob or microwave in the attractive kitchen with table, chairs, sofa and television. During warmer weather there is a gravel and flagstone patio surrounded by a pretty cottage garden and rustic seating.

The Usk Valley Footpath goes past, through the fields beyond. The Old Stables are quiet, leafy and only the sound of the weir and birdsong. In the evening a sumptuous comfortable double bed awaits.

Excellent lighting for bedtime reading.

The shower room is right opposite with a double size shower. Get acquainted with your sublime surroundings.

All footpaths are clearly marked along the river or climb up to the Clytha Folly, or even further into the Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons), or just on the canal at Goytre Wharf. Parking is under cover and adjacent.

Two great pubs close by, each one is a mile distant: Black Bear excellent cuisine and Clytha Arms award winning cider and beer.

NGS gardens is wonderful to visit or just enjoy the natural farm landscape of sheep in the fields and ancient oak trees. Raglan is four miles away for provisions and Abergavenny is a charming market town with well known art shop and gallery also with sophisticated, inspired eating.

So there is nothing much else needed to make your Welsh stay fantastic.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location

USK

Abergavenny 11 miles; Monmouth 13 miles.

The beautiful town of Usk nestles in the gentle Monmouthshire hills along the lovely banks of the River Usk. The town is steeped in history, from the ruins of a Norman castle to the seventeenth century buildings that adorn the cobbled streets. It's like stepping back in time with wonderful antique shops and cosy, friendly tea rooms and yet the more up to date boutiques fit nicely into the leisurely pace of life in this sleepy market town. The golfing courses abound in the area with the spectacular Celtic Manor Golf Course close by where Europe won the Ryder Cup and where all golfers are welcome whatever your handicap. The beautiful Usk and Wye Valleys offer wonderful scenic walks or cycle rides and the array of renowned restaurants offer fine dining at the highest level. A wonderful part of Wales for all the family all year round.
