About The Area - Monmouth

Monmouth is in the heart of the Wye Valley, and as a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is surrounded by magnificent countryside and is situated at the the confluence of the Rivers Wye, Monnow and Trothy.

Monmouth is a bustling market town and makes a great destination for a holiday. There is excellent motorway access from the Midlands, the North, South Wales, and to the Severn Bridge and London.

As well as shops, inns, restaurants and a good range of leisure facilities including an indoor pool, cinema and theatre, visitors can explore the Nelson Museum and hire canoes or bicycles for a traffic free trip along the the beautiful Wye Valley and its riverbank. Just a little further afield, and known as the gateway to the Brecon Beacons, is the market town of Abergavenny (12 miles) and only 3 miles away, the village of Skenfrith which offers an award winning restaurant, pleasant riverside walks and a 13th century castle, one of many in the area – a visit to magnificent Raglan Castle is a must.

Tintern Abbey, floral Usk and RSPB Symond’s Yat are all a short drive whilst Hereford’s impressive cathedral and Chepstow racecourse are about 20 miles distant. World class golf, fishing, canoeing, riding and excellent walking are all available locally.
