There are village fetes and cream teas  in the shadow of Tintern Abbey and the rivers are perfect for kayaks and canoes.  Picnic or barbecue or a doze in the sun ?  Not to be missed!! This is the season for cucumber sandwiches, cricket whites, scones and strawberry jam. Local ice cream running down your chin. Cider with folk music or a pint on the river bank. All available with a dash of warm Welsh style. Croeso!

Make the most of the great outdoors. All three cottages  have their own pretty garden, good quality garden furniture, riverbank or  woodland walking from the doorstep.   Brilliant local pubs and restaurants abound , there is the Ryder Cup golf course, ancient castles and museums to explore , fantastic off and on road cycling , paddle hard or  drift your canoe gently down the magical Wye.

Afraid it may rain? Still loads to do!  Fishing and quad biking are better in the rain,  you can swim in an indoor pool , visit an indoor tropical butterfly zoo, go into ancient roman mines or a deep coal mine or visit a world class museum. Or splash in woodland puddles and enjoy the scent of newly washed trees.   Try our  theatres, concerts and sporting events,  be tempted by farm shops or world class shopping in Cardiff.
