Planning to come and stay with us? Wondering "Whats On?" and when would be ideal to come?
This table shows some of the many events taking place in our home county. Just choose your date and have a look.
Only events notified to our local tourism office by their organiser show up on here (many more are added as each date gets nearer).
Dont forget that we are right on the border of England and Wales . Monmouthshire is in Wales , has all these wonderful things on offer and makes it easy for us to show the best of the County to you! However there are also plenty of events in The Forest of Dean ( Gloucestershire) and in South Herefordshire too and they are reached in a few minutes from our cottages. And then there is Cardiff and a myriad more!
Just ask us if you have something in mind you would like to see or do and we will gladly direct you to even more information.

"Foxes Reach is a delightful cottage in which to stay EVEN in January! It's snug and homely. Granny and Grandpa,Mum and Dadplus Chloe (2.5) amd Evie 6 months all enjoyed themselves!
Great thought has been given to the presentation of the cottage so that visitors find everything they might need.
Fiona and Malcolm have been extremely welcoming - and the flowers and wine were unexpected and much appreciated.Ther's much to do if one wants on the doorstep. Tintern Abbey, Parva Vineyard, Kingstone Brewery, Ravensnest fishery and slightly further afield Chepstow Castle and Symonds Yat - and much more EVEN in January. The tucked away Fountain Inn did an excellent Sunday lunch.
So, a great week!
Many thanks "
