About Jan Thompson

Richard was a Director of a worldwide Truck Braking Company and still works a little freelance.

I have worked in banking, as a full time teacher and finally as a Professional Artist - hence the Art within the walls!

We love our home, garden, birds, lambs etc which surround us.

The locality is a perfect mix of your town needs yet rural oasis and a luxury home.

Jan Thompson purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Jan Thompson chose Monmouth

We feel this property offers what we would like as mature adults in terms of real comfort and surroundings and privacy.

We also feel strongly that families can be penalised for school holiday breaks - as can single non children couples and friends so we intend to have one rate increase for Summer and Winter in the Studio and Cottage and not during family weekends.

This we think is fairer and we hope other people will like our thinking too!

What makes this cottage unique

This is a beautiful comfortable luxury let set in the most beautiful yet private situation!

We have decided to leave our quality interior intact in order for you to use and not leave as a basic let in terms of what we like and enjoy so do you! We leave our sonos music system, sky & tvs wifi hot spot wood etc etc all for you to enjoy and use.

The rayburn is a must to enjoy cast iron cooking and if warm then the Swiss BBQ is a fabulous large BBQ also available for Adult use.

This place has our hearts and our quality interiors and our upkeep every year - a gardener and our wonderful cleaning Houseproud Company are on hand locally if we are not! We have worked together for so long we are more like friends.

So there you have it a wonderful place full of benefits to enjoy and a cared for quality home.

Walk in to Monmouth and enjoy Town and Country!

A perfect location to walk from into town and back and to enjoy peace and tranquility yet with all mod cons on hand!

We would be surprised if you couldn't enjoy Little Leasbrook - and if you require the cottage and the studio - for those extra family guests or visitors please let us know.

Thank you

Jan and Richard

Fabulous getaway

The stay was perfect for everything we love! Walking, eating out, relaxing and reading. The cottage was beautiful, homely and very clean. Every room was decorated beautifully! We loved all of the artwork! A very talented artist! The kids loved the outdoors! Highly recommended for a perfect break. Many thanks. We hope to return!

Strategically located beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Jan are very helpful and their beautiful home is strategically located for exploring the Wye Valley, Vale of Ewyas, and the environs of Cardiff. The bedrooms are very comfortable and well appointed. The bathrooms are very clean and modern. The house is overall very well equipped and all the top-notch appliances work well. Richard was also very helpful with driving directions and suggestions for local eateries. We would love to return again shall we visit the area in the future. Thanks!

Wonderful cottage, spacious and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location in the heart of the lovely Wye Valley. Monmouth is walking distance, but the cottage is tucked away surrounded by fields.

It is really well equipped, and has a lovely garden, overall we were delighted with our stay!

Beautiful cottage in lovely garden

  • 5 of 5

We had a great few days in this cottage near Manmouth. The cottage is very nicely renovated, and the garden is a lovely English cottage style. The house has all modern conveniences, but still has a great atmosphere. We had a great time, thank you for letting us stay! (Kamilla, Sweden, family with two teenage chilren)

Stephen Terry and Matt Tebbitt are well known tv chefs locally based - Hardwick and Foxhunter restaurants.

Like The Angel in Abergavenny too

A place to rest relax, hike, scenic, friendly - many lovely individually run shops in Monmouth and large chain shops too but we try and support local!
