This colourful, contemporary cottage sits in a majestic spot just half a mile from the River Usk. With an extensive garden and uninterrupted views, it’s the perfect venue for an artistic retreat
The house enjoys a secluded rural location on the edge of the pretty hamlet, Pennorth. From your door, you can set off on walks along the footpaths that snake into the hills. With stables beside the cottage, you can even bring your own horse and take advantage of the glorious riding trails here. Or if you fancy taking in some ancient history, hike 2 miles to Allt Mountain, home to an Iron Age fortress.
The cottage itself is a spacious home, architect-designed in the 60s. It retains the spirit of that era, with bright, colourful rooms and a celebratory feel. Make home in the large lounge, curl up on the sofas beside the TV and wood burner, or relax in the sunny conservatory which has uninterrupted views out on the Usk Valley. The kitchen and dining area are ideal for hosting group meals while enjoying the wide-ranging views. After a busy day, head to your peaceful bedrooms, from king-size to bunk beds, so everyone can find a hideaway to suit them. On the ground floor you'll find a super-king-size room (can be made into a twin) with an en-suite shower room; a twin room, and a bunk room. The latter two bedrooms share a bathroom. On the first floor, you’ll find a king-size bedroom, a double bedroom and another king-size room which can be made into twin beds on request, along with a family bathroom with a shower over the bath.
Outside the property has a magnificent garden with a sociable patio area and a long sloping lawn. Enjoy an al fresco meal at the picnic tables, a game on the grass, or explore the little orchard at the end of the plot.
