About the property

Large Farmhouse & Barn in Monmouthshire, Wales - This Hilltop Retreat Of Explorer Christina Dodwell Resonates With The Spirit Of Travel And Freedom

Stylish and spacious, the farmhouse and barn have panoramic rural views showing the ruins of Raglan castle in mid distance stretching to the Sugar loaf mountain where the sun sets - fantastic to see from the terrace and swimming pool. Beautifully quiet yet only minutes drive from award winning pubs and restaurants.The accommodation is both spacious and comfortable, fully equipped and newly furnished to a high standard. There are sun terraces, a verandah, croquet lawn and grassy area for ball games. Large outdoor heated swimming pool (summer only). All year hot tub. Games room. Ample parking. Disabled access. The farm itself has enchanting walks, a picturesque grotto in its own woodlands, and a stream walk which has waterfalls and wild flowers. There is a well-tended grassy jogging or walking track round the fields. Peaceful, noise and traffic free, just sheep and cattle in nearby fields. Look out for nesting buzzards and badger dens by stream.
