Rent a holiday cottage in Monmouth and get-set for a break in one of Wales' best loved heritage towns. Situated on the rivers Wye, Monnow and Trothy, this charming town is perfectly placed for enjoying the very best of town and country.
Let's begin in Monmouth itself, a traditional town shaped by its long and turbulent history. Stay in a Monmouth holiday home and find history around every corner. The town is home to Britain's only remaining fortified bridge - the Monnow Bridge, which was originally built in the 13th century and is now a Grade I listed building and Scheduled Monument. Other attractions in Monmouth include Monmouth Castle - once a very important border castle, as well as Monmouth Priory, whose history dates back to the Norman Conquest.

A cottage rental in Monmouth is a great choice for foodies, too. The town plays host to a selection of cafés, restaurants and pubs, so you'll never be short of places to eat during your stay. For light lunches, hearty breakfasts and a good cup of tea make for Aslan's Café. In the evening, the choice is yours with a range of cuisines catered for, including traditional Welsh, Indian, Italian and Mexican.
After exploring the attractions of Monmouth, be sure to head beyond the limits of the old town too. Located close to the border, daytrips to England are a breeze, and offer the chance to visit the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as the Forest of Dean, both of which are renowned for their scenic beauty and invigorating walking trails.
