Described by guests as "The Gingerbread Cottage" Vanilla is a delicious gem of a stone built 19th century cottage sleeping 3 near to Usk, Monmouthshire. One of a pair dating from the late 1800's. Surrounded by fields, farmland and riverbank it has been totally refurbished and awarded the coveted 5 star grading by Visit Wales - but much original style and charm has been retained.
Perhaps due to the styling and position of the cottage Vanilla has become a popular choice for honeymoons, anniversaries and busy professional couples wanting to recharge and relax.
Vanilla is an elevated position above the banks of the River Usk, we can help arrange trout fishing (River Usk) and Salmon fishing (River Wye) in season.
Right on the Usk Valley Walk with riverbank stretches with excellent wildlife including otters, herons, buzzards and more.
The National Cycle Route no. 42 passes within yards and cycle paths number 30 and 31 are nearby.
There is an excellent country pub with great food in walking distance along the lane and a craft centre with cafe also walking distance . A wide choice of good restaurants and pubs, from those with Michelin starred TV Chefs to a simple chippie, within three miles. Several are pet friendly! We have a hairdresser and a beautician who will provide pampering at the cottage. No need to stir! We can even offer a champagne welcome on request.
