Holiday accommodation in Usk
Usk holiday cottages are the perfect way to make the most of your visit to beautiful Monmouthshire, giving you a great base for your adventures. Whether you choose to stay close to your home-away-from-home or venture further afield, there’s plenty to do. Known for its gardens and award-winning flower displays, the town’s picturesque streets are lovely for strolling down. Families and couples will enjoy walking by the banks of the River Usk, where you can find fun and games at the Usk Island Play Park, or wander through romantic woodland if you head into Cefn Ila. On a sunny afternoon, pack a picnic and find out why Usk Castle is known as the area’s ‘hidden gem’.
A county on the Wales/England border, Monmouthshire is packed with sites of historical significance, as well as popular towns and cities for keen day-trippers. From your accommodation in Usk, the majestic ruins of Raglan Castle are only 8 miles away, as is The National Roman Legion Museum and its ruins of an amphitheatre and baths. Browse the shops and market stalls in Abergavenny (11 miles), the ‘Gateway to Wales’, or feel the bustle of city life in Newport (14 miles) before returning to the peace and tranquillity of Usk. Usk cottages also give you a fantastic choice of scenic walks and outdoor activities, as the town is midway between the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
