  • "A comfortable, clean, spacious, well equipped property set in an area of outstanding natual beauty."

    This was a fantastic base - there are so many things to do and see that we couldn't fit them all in one week. We opted for the fantastic Usk Show, some castle visits, a hiking day, a cycling day and a day canoeing down the Wye. There are so many other places to see - we'll just have to come back another time!

The property

Chepstow 4.8 miles.

Perched above the Wye Valley, high above Tintern Abbey and upon the Organic Penterry Farm near Chepstow, Monmouthshire is The Granary.

This idyllic cottage seamlessly blends original character features including exposed stone and beams with contemporary appliances and benefits from a large patio with furniture and fire pit as well as three well-appointed bedrooms; the perfect setting for families and friends looking to escape to the countryside.

Cross over the threshold and make your way into the sitting room, which is undoubtedly the heart of the home, and warm your feet on the underfloor heating while the designated chef of the groups makes themselves at home in the fully-equipped kitchen.

Gather the family around the dining table to tuck in or if the sun is shining savour the meal outside upon the garden furniture.

The patio is equipped with a fire pit so you can delight in evening drinks, all year round with a spectacular view across the Wye Valley, along with a barbecue, perfect for alfresco dinners.

When the sky darkens, climb the stairs to wash off the day in the sleek bathroom before getting some much-needed rest in either of the king-sizes or the family room with super-king-size, also providing enough space for two singles and a cot upon request.

The Granary lies in the historic, rural parish of Penterry which overlooks Chepstow and Tintern and is just a short walk away from a spectacular Roman hilltop fort.

Nestled in the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the encompassing countryside is beautiful and steeped in history providing endless opportunities for exploring, immersing yourself in the area’s past, and picturesque views amidst the tranquil birdsong.

Find local stores where you can pick up all the essentials you need for your self-catered stay in Chepstow, consisting of an M&S and a Tesco, Waitrose in Monmouth, all of which deliver to the property by prior order, and a lovely shop at Hanley’s Farm in Tidenham.

There are many fabulous restaurants in Tintern, just a short walk away, including the Anchor, The Wild Hare, Parva Farmhouse, and a wonderful Michelin restaurant, The Crown at Whitebrook, whilst travelling further you’ll reach The Angel at Abergavenny, the Walnut Tree at Abergavenny, Cripple Creek at Raglan, and The Hardwick on the outskirts of Abergavenny.

Be sure to pay a visit to the town’s impressive 11th-century castle, which is the oldest remaining post-Roman stone castle in Britain, traverse the ruins, its grounds and fully immerse yourself in history or take a short walk to Tintern home to a majestic Abbey in a breath-taking setting; in total, there are five castles to explore, all a short car ride away.

For those who love the countryside, Tintern is a recommended area for walking and cycling, resting within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty also home to bridle paths, whilst popular walks are found across the Wye Valley Path, where visitors can also try their hand at fishing, and the Offa’s Dyke walking trail.

Those who prefer to traverse by bike will benefit from visiting the cycle hire centre in the Forest of Dean, with the assurance of secure, overnight, lock-up facilities on offer.

For golf fans, head to one of the many courses within proximity to The Granary, including St. Pierre, Celtic Manor, and the Rolls of Monmouth, whilst horse racing enthusiasts can visit Chepstow Racecourse.

If you’re feeling adventurous, there is the Diving Centre at Chepstow and Zip World is approximately an hour’s drive, Gwent Wildlife Trust, Symonds Yat and the Brecon Beacons along with the Elan Valley all close by.

Further afield, the home of the Six Nations Rugby, Cardiff, makes a lovely day or night out.

Adventure awaits at The Granary.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
