Booking a stay should be exciting  and you should not have to worry about what would happen to your money if there is another lockdown. We are a family business and you can be assured that if you need to move or cancel your booking we will help , and quickly . Booking direct with us as cottage owners gives you the reassurance that :-

If there are UK Government COVID restrictions which make it impossible for you to travel from your home address OR our cottage is closed by law due to Coronavirus restrictions

THEN we offer the following options

Either Transfer 100% of what you have paid us to the cost of a new date at any one of our three cottages in 2020 or 2021. No admin charges.

OR Receive a refund of what you have paid us .

PLUS on many dates we are now offering a basic price for the first two people travelling, with supplements for extra people up to the max 6 our two larger cottages accommodate. This allows you to add extra people up to full house – or reduce the party size if  the rules change  and receive a refund for the people who didnt travel – without cancelling altogether.


With the Great Outdoors second nature to us come and breathe fresh air all year round.

We have  amazing outdoor opportunities, in particular  walking, canoeing and kayaking, birdwatching and cycling, but the list is endless. Push the boat out on our sparkling rivers! Archery, riding, quad biking, wild swimming, gorge scrambling or golf anyone?  Or sit in garden- even in winter with a coat and a hot drink!  Or pack a gentle picnic ?  Monmouthshire is the Food Capital of Wales- making our cottages a perfect choice for a 5* foodie break with treats at the local pubs  or at the farmers markets  ( and our kitchens  let you cook  the treats you found yourself!). We have starry Michelin places too with elegant delicacies  and enviable wine cellars- for days when you push the boat out on dry land!

Feeling good has no season. Eat. Swim. Dance. Sing.  Whatever your season and reason for coming our three stylish Monmouthshire Holiday Cottages wait to welcome you.

Not a complex, they are family operated, individually located and distinctive , brilliantly well equipped, individually designed . Fittings and equipment are constantly updated for your comfort. We replace  and update huge numbers of items at each cottage all year round and we have a busy ongoing programme of preventative maintenance.  We care that things remain smart for you- and we work hard to ensure this.  As Heraclitus famously said ” The only thing that is constant- is change!”

You can discover active fun or sit quietly   There is lots that is fresh and exciting to see and do from all three, all year.

There is also Peace. Quiet. Time – at all three.

  • Tintern Abbey Cottage (sleeps up to 6)  fabulously positioned opposite Tintern Abbey in the famously beautiful Wye Valley,
  • Foxes Reach (sleeps up to 6)  with its own  hot tub just a mile above Tintern at Catbrook,
  • Vanilla Cottage (sleeps up to 3)  on the River Usk close to  pretty Usk and Abergavenny , gateway to the Brecon Beacons.

All three are pet friendly, unusually well equipped, conveniently set – We are in the heart of the famously lovely Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty , near Offa’s Dyke, the Royal Forest of Dean, on The Wye Valley Walk ,  the Monmouthshire Way,  in the bautiful Vale of Usk -and so easy for exploring the Brecon Beacons.

Our guests find lights and heating on, tables laid for dinner, beds ready to slip into.

Fresh seasonal flowers  scent the rooms and there is milk in the fridge.Enjoy from the first moment.

Brilliant for great experiences Outdoors or Indoors -walking, eating, sightseeing,  golf, family reunions, anniversaries , small meetings and much more.

Come stay awhile……….  Come play awhile. ………..
