The Details...

An amazing stone tower, surrounded by ancient woodland makes for cosy and comfortable accommodation for two. The Dovecote is a stunning bolthole nestled deep within the Monmouthshire valleys. Perfect for a getting away from it all with a romantic break in this beautiful little building, steeped in history.

Located in the picturesque village of Penallt, near Monmouth, the Dovecote is the perfect base from which to explore the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB.) Siting by the side of a rolling valley near the River Wye, you can lose yourselves in the breath taking scenery as you spend your days walking, cycling, fishing or even canoeing, before enjoying a pint in the renowned real ale pub, not 10 minutes away.

Come home to the gorgeous and bijou Dovecote, kick off your walking shoes and sit back and relax. From the moment you enter the house, you can feel the soft curved walls and intimate interior wrap you up and invite you in.

The lounge area has a traditional, county cottage feel to it, with rugs underfoot, and an over filled sofa in which to recline. With windows to all aspects, you can enjoy panoramic views of the valley right outside your door. Or draw the curtains and snuggle up to watch your favourite films on the TV and DVD player included.

The kitchen offers a wealth of rustic charm, and is fully equipped for your convenience including a gas stove and electric oven. The solid-fuel range cooker (with logs provided) is perfect for warming some milk before bedtime. With it's heavy oak beams and vaulted ceiling, natural wood units and solid slate flooring, the kitchen at the Dovecote is picture perfect. Enjoy the fruits of your labour as you sit and enjoy a hearty breakfast or a warming lunch at the solid oak dining table, with enough seating for four.

The beautiful bedroom with its curved walls and dual aspect windows, is a charming sanctuary from the world outside. With a brass double bed, and touches of Victoriana throughout, sleeping at the Dovecote will be an absolute pleasure. The bathroom is grand and spacious, with a stunning roll-top bath, enclosed shower, washbasin and WC. Soak away the day in this gorgeous, traditional bathroom, big enough for two.

As you would expect in such a beautiful rural location, open space is in abundance. The large and very attractive lawned garden offers an idyllic spot to enjoy on warm summer evenings. Enjoy a glass of wine at the garden table, or throw a few bangers on the BBQ for a private party just for two. The garden also offers direct access into the woods and orchard beyond.

As you would expect in an area of outstanding natural beauty, there is plenty to see in the areas surrounding the Dovecote. With excellent walks including the Wye Valley Walking Route less than a mile away, fantastic traditional English pubs and inns, a wide variety of wildlife and plenty of historic buildings to visit, you will not be at a loss for something to do.

The Dovecote is also home to the 'Capsy Wennet' cider house and orchards. They have been pressing apples and pears there to make cider and perry for generations. So, if you are looking for something refreshing after a long day exploring beautiful Monmouthshire, why not ask for a sample to taste?
