The Countryside

Mon­mouthshire is a beau­ti­ful place to vis­it at any time of year with plen­ty of his­to­ry and stun­ning coun­try­side to explore. While in the area, why not take time to vis­it one of the many his­toric cas­tles includ­ing Mon­mouth, Chep­stow or Caldicot, all less than an hour away.

If you require more goth­ic love­li­ness, you could vis­it the stun­ning Tin­tern Abbey and the near­by ‘Dev­il’s Pul­pit’ for astound­ing views over the Wye Val­ley. From here you can access one of the many walk­ing trails in the area, which take in the spec­tac­u­lar scenery; a real escape from the every­day world.

If cafes and shops are more your thing, there are numer­ous mar­ket towns in the local area, with strange streets to be explored (per­haps by moon­light…) and plen­ty of love­ly tea rooms and pubs in which to sit and watch the world go by.
