The detail

The Donkey Shed is nestled away in the breathtakingly beautiful Wye Valley and is the perfect escape from busy city life. Once an old donkey stable, the property has been transformed into a stunning holiday home that perfectly complements its idyllic surroundings. The fabulous hosts will be around to meet and greet on arrival, answer any questions you may have and give recommendations about the area - after that the place is all yours.

Guests enter into an open plan living space with a kitchen, dining and seating area, all sharing a spectacular view across the valley and along the river. On chilly days the room can be kept warm and cosy by a wood burner, with plenty of logs provided for your stay.

The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances including an oven, induction hob, fridge and dishwasher, as well as all the basics needed to prepare a feast. When dinner is served, guests can eat at the dining table or alfresco out on the patio. The seating area has a comfy sofa and chairs, a TV and DVD player with a selection of films, meaning you can enjoy a movie night with your loved ones or simply sit socialising long into the night.

Upstairs on the mezzanine is a luxurious king size bed and downstairs is a snug room with bunk beds, ideal for children. Across the hall is the bathroom, which has a separate shower, a lavish marble bathtub and underfloor heating to warm cold feet. Locally made organic soap and bath bombs are also provided for you to use throughout your stay.

Outside the shed is a delightful patio and garden and both have seating and great views of the valley. The suntrap patio is a lovely spot for a barbecue, or you could venture down towards the river for a picnic amongst the wildflowers.

Guests are treated to a couple of complimentary bottles of delicious ale from a local brewery, and if it’s a special occasion a luxury welcome hamper can be arranged. For the ultimate relaxing break, a masseuse can be booked to come to the Donkey Shed.

The wonderful surrounding countryside is waiting to be explored, with fantastic footpaths and cycle trails right on your doorstep. Arguably the best way to discover the area though is from the river itself, with canoes, kayaks and paddleboards available to rent. There are even opportunities for wild swimming if you’re feeling brave! If that’s not enough, the Brecon Beacons National Park is around a half hour drive away and is a mecca for hiking and outdoor activities. You're also near to the superb Forest of Dean, which offers a number of fantastic walks through some absolutely charming scenery.

There is a good selection of lovely local pubs nearby, serving up local ales and wholesome meals. If you fancy yourself a bit of a foodie, you can enjoy a true culinary experience at one of two Michelin-starred restaurants, The Whitebrook and The Walnut Tree, both within easy reach. The historic market town of Monmouth is a 15-minute drive away, renowned for its quaint buildings, old castles, charming cafes and independent shops. And finally, a trip to Wye Valley wouldn’t be complete without visiting the romantic ruins of Tintern Abbey.
