Modern day Monmouthshire now incorporates the main towns of Abergavenny, Monmouth, Caldicot and Chepstow.

The cottage is very well appointed and has everything you may need. The welcome pack and surprise bottle of fizz was very much appreciated indeed. We ate at the village pub both days and thoroughly enjoyed especially the short stroll home. We did a circular walk but there are more adventurous walks if the weather is good. All in all a very enjoyable and relaxing few days in a peaceful location to which we will definitely return
