Set in idyllic Welsh countryside, this C17th barn was the granary of what is now a working sheep farm. Perfect base for golf (Celtic Manor and several local courses nearby), walking and exploring the Monmouthshire countryside.
Surrounded by countryside, this is an ideal retreat for up to five people in three bedrooms, with two bath/shower rooms. Step outside into the gardens and farmyard or walk into the fields. It's all on your doorstep. This is a working farm so you might have to open the gates or make way for the sheep. We have sheep, a few cows, a horse and a dog. There are also sheep dogs from time to time.
Provisions for a continental breakfast provided so you can be independent and enjoy a late start.
There is a TV (not Sky) and a small selection of Blu ray films.
You can walk anywhere on the farm and in the woods - at your own risk - but do not enter a field with either cows or horses.
Keep out of the farm barns and off stacked wood and woodchip - all of which can be dangerous.
For children - how about bringing your tent and camping in the orchard? If you change your mind, you can just pop back into the barn. March and April is a good time to see the lambs; August/September is good for picking blackberries.
Interaction with guests
The barn, known as The Granary, is on the farm-yard along with the main house, a second letting barn, known as Barnaby, and a couple of modern working barns. There is ample parking and you can have access to the lawns and gardens in front of the barn.
