IMPORTANT NOTE A466 road closure anticipated near Tintern   Spring 2019 and – PROBABLY week commencing 8 May for 7 weeks

There is damage to the A466 between St Arvans ( the village to Chepstow side of Tintern) and Tintern itself. This could affect arrivals to Foxes Reach from the M4 but is not likely to affect arrivals from the M5/M50

At the time of writing the damaged area has traffic lights which have next to no effect on your journey however we have heard that  in spring   the road will again be completely closed and diversions will be in place. We are advised that the work will start 8 May and the road will be closed for 7 weeks

If you should arrive at St Arvans from Chepstow and find that the Wye Valley  A466 Road is closed this is what you should do ( it sounds dreadful but in fact only adds a very few minutes to your drive. )

At St Arvans village look for the Piercefield pub. After the pub is a stone fountain and a left turn signed Devauden Llanishen,  Trellech. .Take this left turn and uphill.

If you have a satnav  reset it now and tell  it to take you St Arvans to Catbrook VIA Trellech.

Go straight on through the villages of Devauden and LLanishen to Trellech. On entering Trellech take the first turning right with a house called Spring Villa on the corner.. You have now joined the route which would be used by those approaching Trellech from Monmouth. See above.

Foxes Reach- an ideal Wye Valley Holiday Cottage

A traditional Welsh whitewashed stone cottage of great character, with sheltered and charming cottage garden, in a quiet but not isolated rural hamlet of the lower Wye Valley, South Wales.

The cottage is easily reached, being about 1 mile from historic Tintern , 15 minutes drive from both the Severn Bridge (M48) at Chepstow, and the dual carriageway north to M50 / M5 / M6 / M42 at Monmouth, making it a convenient choice all year round.

(OS Grid Reference 509029).

Quietly located in a residential village (Catbrook)  this is a perfect location for families and walkers -with great walks from the doorstep . The Abbey ( under 2 miles by road see pictures below) and a myriad of other historic, sporting and family friendly attractions are easily reached.

The sheltered well stocked garden has its own hot tub  and the cottage is pet friendly .This cottage is also often chosen for honeymoons , family reunions, anniversaries , and significant birthdays by couples requiring the luxury of a little extra private space.

Foxes Reach has long been a family holiday favourite   ( lots to do locally including numerous family orientated  attractions, plenty of sporty things to interest active older children , international shopping and sporting events in Cardiff, and geocaching, the SUPERFAST WiFi  , and hot tub are hits with teens) . We have many walkers ( every walk type from easy lanes to canalside to open mountain within  about an hour ).

Please scroll down to see lots of pictures and just ask us if you need to know more.

Downstairs

Foxes Reach has a warmly comfortable  sitting room with oak floor,  thick rug, woodburner and flatscreen satellite TV, as delightful  to relax in after the hot tub  or on a summers evening as for opening your Christmas parcels.

The very well equipped fitted kitchen  with range cooker is open plan to the dining area with its original thick stone walls.  Whether watching the TV/DVD  ( with ipod dock) or chatting to friends  round the table the holiday cook is not isolated.

There is a back door from the dining room to outside and a door from the kitchen end to the hall. with hanging space

Downstairs there is a smart limestone/travertine Fired Earth shower room with a good shower cubicle, double showerhead ( one has a dinner plate rain head) , WC and washbasin

Accessed from the courtyard is a spacious lockable laundry/boot room with  sink, excellent washer dryers and boot racks.Perfect for drying hot tub, swim and golf wear.

Upstairs

Up straightforward stairs with a good handrail  there are 4 bedrooms, one king 5ft, one double 4ft 6,  and two singles . All bedrooms have their own radiators and TVs with DVD players    A travel cot is available on request and fits comfortably into  either of the two single rooms. We have hairdryers and a safe.

Note that the 4 bedrooms are similar in size. This makes the double rooms less spacious as the beds take up more space  whilst the single rooms are unusually spacious.

The upstairs bathroom is fully tiled and has  bathtub with shampoo shower, WC, washbasin, shaver socket.

Outside

The pretty garden is fenced and gated  for the safety of children and pets. There is a terrace with large table, brolly and chairs, a second little bistro table in the courtyard,  sun loungers in summer, and of course the hot tub, which is particularly wonderful as the sun goes down and on starry nights.

There is off road parking for two cars, three at a push. Further free car parking  available outside Catbrook Memorial Hall ( approx 300 metres)

Official Awards and Star Grading

Awarded the coveted five stars for facilities and quality by  Visit Wales, the owners also hold the “Croeso Cynnes Cymreig ( Warm Welsh Welcome) award .The cottage also holds the Walkers are Welcome and Cyclists are Welcome  awards and meets the standard of the  Green Tourism Business Gold Award ( highest level)

In 2018 the owners won Wales top Award for Best Self Catering- judgement takes into consideration the three cottages and also the welcome given to guests, quality of services and much more.

Services which will visit the cottage

  • We have a beautician  who will provide wonderfully relaxing pampering treats by appointment at the cottage. Indulge!
  • Tesco, Sainsburys , Asda and Waitrose online delivery services operate to the cottage.
  • Visiting chef service available please ask
  • The Curry Queen makes delicious home made curries and will deliver when pre ordered ( Friday nights only)

How many people  does the cottage take?

The cottage sleeps 6 and we  welcome a baby plus we welcome pets. However we think that if you exceed 7 bodies ( adult child or pet bodies added together ) or bring a second travel cot you may feel  cramped. The cottage is of cottage proportions and is not a modern large house. Please see the photographs. The four bedrooms are of similar sizes which means that the doubles are relatively small whilst the singles are relatively spacious. Space is particularly to be considered during the Christmas season when we also have a full sized Christmas tree. Very beautiful but also taking up space!  We do not want you to feel squished.

We are always happy to discuss any aspect of the cottage and its suitability for your holiday, and to describe the cottage and its features to you over the telephone.

Please call us on 01600 860341 within the UK or +44 1600 860341 from overseas.

Inside the cottage, we maintain a visitors guide to the facilities, information about the locality as well as other important information including contact numbers for the local emergency services and hospitals.

We welcome Assistance dogs and the information pack also includes contact details for Vets that we are able to recommend.
