A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ! 

Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!

That's how we greet you in Wales!

We make a big fuss at our cottages for  the December month of Advent, Christmas and New Year as this is a time of year we love ourselves

During December  you can enjoy so many local Christmassy events and  go Christmas Shopping in the world class centres of Cardiff, Bath, Bristol or Cheltenham. Of pick up a one off  hand crafted item in our attractive market towns.  Take in a show or go ice skating!

At Christmas itself,  you can sit by our woodburners and open your own gifts round fully decorated real trees fresh from the local forests or you can relax in our cosy bedrooms with their Christmas pretties.

Order food deliveries, eat out or dine in

As the cottages have all mod cons as well as enormous traditional charm they make an excellently relaxing country style escape. Our kitchens can easily cope with festive meals but we are close to many excellent pubs and restaurants so why not take the effort out of it all and let them pamper you.

If you ask us in advance of arrival we can direct you to local suppliers of free range turkeys,geese  and delicious venison,  a chef who could fill your freezer, a wonderful fishmonger and more. The major supermarkets will  also all deliver to all three cottages via their on line order systems.

Because we have it all we are often booked up well ahead,we are now taking bookings for Christmas/New year  2018-19 and it is not advisable to delay for these special dates.

Advent  is all of December .Shop, skate, spot Santa, sing carols

There is a lot to do in the area and we can direct you to horse racing and carol singing, markets, pantomimes, outdoor skating or all varieties of Santa Specials.

If you cannot come to us over the festivals themselves why not consider our Advent breaks during December. There are in fact more events before Christmas than over the actual holiday, we decorate with everything except the  tree and a break away lets you reunite with friends or enjoy the experience of shopping in our market towns or enjoying the world class shopping in Cardiff . Even take in a show in Cardiff or at one of Monmouth's two  top class theatres.  

A highspot  of Advent is the open air carol service in roofless Tintern Abbey by the light of torches and preceded by mulled wine. Breathtaking. Right across the road from Tintern Abbey Cottage and easily reached from the other two cottages.  (The service has always been in aid of charity,  is organised by Chepstow Rotary Club and we are keen supporters.)  In 2017 it will be on 02 December . It goes ahead whatever the weather and for us it is the start of Christmas.

In December  Usk has its Winter Fair which is just bursting with atmosphere.  Always something special . (Real reindeer  most years! )

Wide choice of local pubs and restaurants

There are excellent restaurants and pubs  nearby all three houses from a Michelin Star and a TV chef to a country pub or  a fish and chip takeaway. What do you fancy? . We can supply a list  if you want to make reservations..

A cottage stay makes a fabulous gift

We can also  “package” a holiday  for any date to be a Christmas present , supplying a suitable card for you to present as an announcement of your gift. If  your recipient is not able to stay at the cottage on the "right" day  but will  enjoy their stay later on, this would  make a great choice.

How long is an Advent  short break?

In general  other cottages offer very short  weekend breaks  arriving Friday and turfing you out on Sunday.  But ours are more relaxed. We offer Friday afternoon arrivals and  let you stay to Monday morning departures included in the price. We know that some people have to leave us  during Sunday  but this ( free  ) extra time pattern allows you to stay as much of the weekend  as you are able. Let's face it you don't really want to be turfed out early on a Sunday morning do you?  A lie in and a leisurely walk  and lunch are surely more appealing before you return to reality.

Mid week breaks are the same price as a weekend but with a BONUS of one extra night FREE. Arrive Monday afternoon depart Friday morning  or at any times within that- the cottage is all yours..

If course if you would like to stay longer than  a short break please ask!
