Rectory Cottage is a beautifully situated, wonderfully equipped, 2 bedroom self-catering cottage adjoining a 17th Century Old Rectory. The cottage will comfortably accommodate a family of 4 and is children and pet friendly.

The space

We are lucky enough to have stunning views from the front garden towards the River Usk and are situated 600 ft from the beautiful Usk Valley Walk. The cottage is within easy reach of the Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons National Park, Offa's Dyke, Llanthony Valley and the Wye Valley; we are also moments from Route 42 cycle route.

We pride ourselves in ensuring that you have a relaxed and enjoyable stay; you will be provided with freshly baked bread and our own eggs on arrival. Children are free to use the trampoline and other toys in the secure back garden adjoining the cottage patio and we supply age appropriate toys and books for those rainy days. There is also a small selection of dvds.

For food enthusiasts the Abergavenny Food Festival is held in September - early booking is advisable. We are situated only a few minutes from Stephen Terry's The Hardwick restaurant and within a few miles of The Walnut Tree, The Foxhunter, The Bell at Skenfrith and The Crown at Whitebrook. Local pubs, including the well-known Clytha Arms, provide excellent pub food.

What a fantastic place to stay away in the beautiful Welch countryside! We had a great stay here and enjoyed all the animals! We did not get to meet Kate but here lovely mother Liz looked after us and really made us feel welcome! This cottage is located in a really fantastic area and was a nice drive to Cardiff.

Liz and Kate made us very welcome and we enjoyed staying at their B and B. The walks nearby are through fields of sheep along the river Usk and around the village. Abergavenny is not far away to drive for supplies, restaurants etc. We had everything we needed and it was a quiet peaceful place to stay. Highly recommend.

We had a great couple of days staying at the Old Rectory. It was compact but very clean and well equipped. Really comfortable beds. Kate was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. A great location too. Thanks Kate.

We had a lovely time at Kate's. The location and scenery were beautiful, it was a great trip away from busy life! Kate was a great host, very welcoming and friendly. The home made bread and eggs were a lovely addition. A beautiful house in a beautiful part of the country

We had a lovely time staying here over New Years. Kate was very responsive to my questions beforehand and was able to provide a cot for our 2 year old daughter. The area is beautiful, my daughter particularly loved visiting the sheep, although was a bit scared of the chickens. I'm sure we will be back!
