An eclectic and luxurious farmhouse and cottage with incredible views.

This comfortable farmhouse dates back to the 16th Century and was once the home of Captain Thomas James, the mariner famous for discovering the North West passage in 1631. Situated high up on the edge of the Skirrid Mountain with far reaching views over Monmouthshire, you can be "on top of the world" within 30 minutes for the fit and a little longer at slower pace.

This is the perfect house to celebrate a milestone event or spend time with family and friends. Completely refurbished throughout and offering exceptional facilities with a huge country kitchen/dining room with underfloor heating beneath the flagstones, ensuring the house is warm and cosy in colder months.

Snuggle up by the fire in the sitting room or kitchen, watch a movie in the cinema room, play table tennis, chat in the kitchen or dance the night away in the disco den; there is plenty of room for everyone to be together or split into smaller groups.

Carefully thought out bedrooms, each with their own theme, offer flexible accommodation, 3 of them with zip-lock beds making a super king double or two single beds. There are 5 ‘master’ doubles with en suite bathrooms and 2 bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. A total of 7 bedrooms sleep 16 in beds plus 4 in Z-beds.

If you need a little extra space Cider House Cottage is located next door and sleeps 6 (+ Z-bed). It is not let separately and is available for an extra charge. Fully renovated, it offers a stunning master double with en suite shower room and freestanding bath, a double and a bunk bedroom which share a shower room. The ground floor has a comfy sitting room and kitchen, fully kitted out with wood burning stove and underfloor heating.

With large terraces and an infinity lawn, the farmhouse is ideal for outdoor dining and barbecues. Walks, cycling, visiting castles and fine dining, less than a mile away at the famous Walnut Tree Inn, all add up to give the makings of a fabulous active or multi-generational family holiday, corporate bonding venue or yoga retreat.
