Perfect for couples seeking a romantic break form the hustle and bustle of everyday, escape to the country and enjoy one of the many walks from the door, then settle down at this charming abode. Sitting in 15 acres of grounds, lap up the peace and quiet and switch off.
Framed by blossom trees lining the driveway, this lodge is a picture-perfect hideaway for a couple or solo holidaymaker and their canine companion. This one-storey retreat is all about cosiness, with underfloor heating, a wood burner and dressing gowns all designed to keep you snug. And you won’t have to go far to find fantastic walks either – simply amble down to the riverside to set out on the Usk Valley Walk.
Throughout the cottage, subtle tones create a calming atmosphere, while flagstone flooring and exposed ceiling beams give it traditional appeal. The open-plan living area is an inviting place to relax. Step down two steps, close your eyes and drift off for 40 winks in the rocking chair or sink into the comfortable leather sofas to watch TV. On a warm sunny day, throw open the patio doors to let in some fresh air. In the bedroom, curl up with a good book in the armchair or settle down for a restful night’s sleep in the double bed. The lodge sits in 15 acres of the owner’s garden. You’ll have your own private patio, where you can fire up the BBQ on a sultry summer evening.
