Cwmcarvan Lodge

In an Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Cwmcarvan Lodge is a much-loved property, with mostly repeat visitors. It feels very remote, yet is incredibly easy access from London, Bristol, Birmingham and Cardiff. It is a quiet haven, with just the sound of cows and sheep in the surrounding fields, church-bells from across the valley and the odd farm tractor. The lodge is very sunny, with a south-facing sitting/dining room, and three south-facing bedrooms. It has two bathrooms. The views are gorgeous - up to the mountains and down to the Usk Valley. We provide all the logs you need for the open fire, flowers in all the rooms, a welcome pack in your fridge and any help you need with advice on local walks and things to do. Celtic Manor, the Ryder Cup golf club, is 20 minutes away, as are the Black Mountains - known for stunning walks and old churches. Nearer to home are the famous Wye Valley and Forest of Dean, with cycle-trails galore, and lovely pubs and restaurants. There is a Michelin starred restaurant 5 minutes away, as well as other famous eateries. This is a great spot for foodies. rnPets are welcome and the enclosed garden has a lovely swing seat, gorgeous ancient roses, and a rope swing for children. It backs onto oak woodlands, which fill with bluebells, and wild garlic.

 Cwmcarvan Lodge is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the famous Wye Valley just 5 minutes away. There is canoeing and kayaking on the Wye river, as well as some dramatic walks, and the famously high Symonds Yat Rock, where peregrine falcons have nested for 75 years consecutively. The Forest of Dean is also right here, with its impressive array of cycle-trails (you can rent bikes there), and even an extensive art trail in the forest. The Black Mountains are 20 minutes away, with their stunning views and walks, all part of the Brecon Beacons National Park, and the Beacons are 40 minutes away. Hay-on-Wye, the famous book town with its book festival, is 50 minutes away. The Ryder Cup golf course, Celtic Manor, is a 20 minutes drive, and there are many local golf courses nearby. We have a few remarkable gardens locally which are open to the public (ask if you are interested), and some delicious swimming spots for people who like swimming in rivers and lakes! Possibly more popular are the famous local foody establishments, the Hardwick, the Walnut Tree, and the Crown, a Michellin starred restaurant in a neighboring village. The nearby town of Monmouth has every kind of food available, as well as a farmers' market, lovely independent shops, and a huge Waitrose.
