About the neighbourhood
With a Monmouthshire postcode but technically in England, your holiday will embrace both English and Welsh cultures. Sitting above the Wye Valley, and bordering the Forest of Dean, you have the opportunity to explore the wealth of historic and cultural offerings
Getting around
You will need your own transport unless you plan a complete walking adventure- in which case organise a supermarket delivery to get your groceries. The village shop is a strenuous uphill walk.
