The property

Situated in the picturesque Wye Valley countryside, on the outskirts of Penallt, close to the Wales/England border, is White House Farm, a stone and white-washed Welsh longhouse, ideal for a large family or group gathering to the peaceful Monmouthshire countryside.

Access the property via a spacious driveway, providing ample off-road parking, where you will also discover the spectacular front garden, with large lawn, patio area with seating, summerhouse and a hot tub, which can provide a luxury end to each day, sitting under the stars and soaking in your peaceful setting.

Step inside the property and be greeted by many charming original features, from stonework to wooden beams, adding plenty of character to the cottage.

The main sitting room offers a selection of inviting furniture, where you can relax after a busy day in front of the wood burning stove with a good book from the bookcase or enjoying your favourite shows on the TV.

The second sitting room/snug area is ideal for curling up with a good book, if you're seeking a moment of solitude.

Head into the large, fully-fitted kitchen, jam-packed with appliances and modern conveniences to aid you with your self-catering needs, with a large double oven offering plenty of space to cook for the whole group, with a handy utility room attached, housing a washing machine.

Quick breakfasts can be enjoyed at the breakfast bar, while group meals can be shared around the large dining table in the dining room.

There is one ground-floor bedroom, ideal for anyone with mobility issues, with a king-size double bed and an en-suite shower room with walk-in shower, while upstairs you will find the remaining three bedrooms.

The master king-size double offers ample space, high sloping ceilings, a stunning chandelier light fixture and picturesque views, while one of the remaining two king-size double bedrooms boasts a large en-suite with a bath.

The bedrooms that don't have an en-suite benefit from access to a family bathroom suite, with a choice of bath and walk-in shower to prepare you for each day.

There is an additional snug area upstairs with a sofa and bookcase filled with books, should you wish to spend a quiet moment to yourself.

Head out and explore your pretty surroundings; the rural village of Penallt boasts two traditional pubs serving locally-sourced food and real ales within walking distance of the cottage, close to the banks of the River Wye and several woodland areas for quaint walks, including Livox Wood, a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The Wye Valley is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offering plenty of scenic walking opportunities amidst rolling hills and lakes for fishing, canoeing and sailing, as well as attractions like its butterfly farm, ideal for children and wildlife lovers.

Just across the border are a number of fantastic attractions worth a visit; including Clearwell Caves, offering a network of ancient caverns and an Iron mining museum; Perrygrove Railway Tourist Attraction; the ancient woodland area of Puzzlewood; and Coleford Great Western Railway Museum, set in a 19th century station.

Walkers and cyclists can delight in exploring Offa's Dyke footpath, Wye Valley Walk and the Three Castles Walk, which all run through or close to Penallt, while further afield you can explore the Black Mountains; Symonds Yat, with its viewpoint where you can observe Peregrine Falcons; and the incredible Forest of Dean's woodland, hills and valleys, where you can kayak, mountain bike or visit many historic sites like the iconic Gothic ruins of the 11th century Tintern Abbey.

Venture into Monmouth to discover a mixture of fascinating architecture, including its magnificent Grade I listed castle, the impressive Monrow Bridge and gate tower, the only river bridge remaining in Great Britain and the The Nelson Museum and Local History Centre, dedicated to Admiral Horatio Nelson.

Further afield is the magnificent countryside of the Malvern Hills and the Brecon Beacons National Park, both offering a fantastic day out for walkers and cyclists amongst fascinating and varied landscapes.

White House Farm is a memorable base for a large family gathering in the picturesque Wye Valley.

The charming village of Penallt sits on the west bank of the beautiful River Wye in the Wye Valley. On the border of England and Wales, the village boasts stunning views, Nature Reserves, an SSSI and two excellent local pubs serving locally sourced food and real ales. The Offa's Dyke footpath, Wye Valley Walk and the Three Castles Walk all run through or close to this unspoilt area of Monmouthshire. The magnificent Royal Forest of Dean, England's largest oak forest and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is just a short drive away, and offers numerous trails that can be explored either on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. Caving, abseiling and a high wire rope course are for the more adventurous, whilst fishing, golf, kayaking and canoeing are other popular activities in this area. Visit the historic town of Monmouth with its mixture of elegant Georgian mansions and Victorian courtyards, or the lovely market town of Ross on Wye is close by, with timbered Tudor houses, excellent shops, pubs and restaurants. Just a little further afield are the unspoilt Malvern Hills, Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park. A great area to unwind with family and friends.
