CHURCH HILL FARM BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY IN THE LOWER WYE VALLEY SET IN 63 ACRES

Penallt House Rental Photos and Description

Large luxury farmhouse gorgeous views and total privacy

Sleeps 9. Large luxury farmhouse kitchen set in 63 acres, four bedrooms, study, dining room, living room, satellite TV. Wood burning stoves. Gorgeous views and total privacy. All kitchen equipment, linen, towels, heating and wood for fires included. Perched on the edge of the hill with beautiful views across the Wye Valley to the Forest of Dean, the very private Church Hill Farm is hidden away, over half a mile from the nearest road, surrounded by its own land and overlooks the picturesque 11th Century Penallt Old Church. Behind the house ancient woodland provides a perfect backdrop. Deer, badger, foxes, and rabbits roam throughout the property, and the sounds of songbirds fill the air in spring. Buzzards soar in the air above the hill, and at dusk, if you listen carefully, you will hear the sound of bats chattering as they wake up for their evening foray into the air to catch insects.

Complete privacy and gorgeous views: Perched on the edge of the hill with beautiful views across the Wye Valley to the Forest of Dean, sits the very private luxury farmhouse Church Hill Farm. Hidden away, over half a mile from the nearest road, the property is surrounded by its own land and overlooks the picturesque 11th Century Penallt Old Church. Behind the house ancient woodland provides a perfect backdrop. Deer, badger, foxes, and rabbits roam throughout the property, and the sounds of songbirds fill the air in spring. Buzzards soar in the air above the hill, and at dusk, if you listen carefully, you will hear the sound of bats chattering as they wake up for their evening foray into the air to catch insects.

Just five miles from Monmouth, the location offers a huge variety of different options for the perfect holiday break. The Lower Wye Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty, is literally on your doorstep. If you like walking, you can leave your car at home and explore the local area on foot.

Monmouth and the immediate area: Within fifteen minutes you can drive to any one of a number of specially worked out circular or longer distance walks. En route you will see spectacular views, ancient buildings, old churches, miles of old stone walls, and peek into the gardens of the pretty cottages that are dotted throughout the countryside.

The town of Monmouth itself sits at the mouth of the Monnow where it meets the Wye. It is a picturesque and interesting place with a number of sites well worth a visit including the famous covered bridge, the castle, St Mary's Church, Agincourt Square and an attractive main street with a good selection of shops and a market in the square on Fridays and Saturdays.

There is a good leisure centre and swimming pool, two excellent golf courses and a canoe centre. Nearby are any number of interesting castles - Raglan, Whitecastle, Goodrich, Chepstow and Caldicot castles, and the very famous Tintern Abbey.

Day Trips in the area: Slightly further afield (12 miles) lies Abergavenny and beyond Hay on Wye. The back road from Llanvihangel Crucorney, home of the oldest pub in Wales, The Skirrid Inn, to Hay on Wye, is one of the most lovely rides in the country. The single track road winds slowly up the Black Mountains past the spectacular ruins of Llanthony Priory, through Capel-y-Ffin up to the top of Hay bluff. The view from the top of the bluff offers a 360 degree perspective for miles across three counties and is one of the most exhilarating in Wales. When the weather conditions are right you can watch the paragilders literally throwing themselves off the bluff to circle the hill or soar away across the countryside when air currents permit. At nearby Crickhowell there are a number of paragliding schools where the adventurous can learn to fly.To the east is the fascinating Forest of Dean. This is the largest forest in England and offers some beautiful walks and cycle trails as well as being steeped in history.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Just a little note to say how much we enjoyed staying in your wonderful house last week, thank you. It's a super spot, so peaceful and surrounded by beautiful countryside. The house is comfortable and welcoming and it was lovely to have an Aga! We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Church Hill Farm was an addition to our existing smallholding which we bought in 1987. Christine is originally from the south of England and Max from New York City. This is a gorgeous spot and we just love it.

If you like real countryside with lovely views and great walks this is the place for you. Totally relaxing.

Off the beaten track with no other houses around.

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic country farmhouse with everything we needed. Lots of space for 7 of us with great kitchen and garden with views across the valley. An ideal place for being outside with space to play games around the house. Perfect if you want seclusion and woodland walks. 15-20 minute drive to Waitrose in Monmouth. The perfect hosts - really friendly but non-intrusive. They live nearby and are more than happy to help with anything but leave you alone otherwise! Will definitely be returning with groups of friends/family.

What a brilliant weekend - five children and the house never felt crowded. Christine and Max were so friendly and kind. The house is perfect for a gathering of two families and the children played outside from dusk till dawn. We will be back next year if you have avaliability.

Many thanks again for such a lovely stay

PERFECT SPOT FOR A WALKING WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Church Hill Farm met all the expectations of a group of 5 discerning ladies who enjoy walking weekends. The house is warm, extremely well-equipped, spacious and well supplied with bathrooms. The owner is most welcoming and informative. The situation is idyllic with fantastic views over the Wye Valley and it is possible to spend a weekend without using the car - lovely walks from the house and a kitchen that encourages staying in to eat. We can thoroughly recommend this property.
