Local Area

This is a detached cottage located on a small holding in the Usk Valley. The owner lives in the old farmhouse across the courtyard. The lovely market town of Usk is only 2.2 miles away. A small market town along the banks of the river Usk there are several local independent shops and some great places to eat out including  57 Bridge Street, a local deli, bar and kitchen.  Usk Castle overlooks the town and has a great historic significance in Wales as it was once occupied by Welsh hero Owain Glyndwr. The town was virtually burned to the ground in 1403 in the battle of Usk.  Around the area there are many other castles including the magnificent Raglan, so well preserved it has been used in many films, and Chepstow Castle on the banks of the river Wye.
