Why Becky Adorjan chose Monmouthshire

The manor is an amazing house, and I don't think there is another property so old in the country that can be rented. You really are experiencing history when you stay here. It's a very special property and I've always been happy to share it with the public as I believe these places should be enjoyed and appreciated so that they can be maintained for future generations.

A surprising home away from home :)

  • 5 of 5

Immediately felt at home whilst being shown around by the house keeper. Everything you need for a comfortable and unique stay! Comfy beds, lots of fun for young children, we could even bring the dog! A castle and pub within walking distance, and supermarkets all close by so just wonderful!

A great medieval house with lots of character

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and found it very comfortable with everything we needed. There's plenty of interesting places close by to visit, and the weather was amazing.

A great find for our family holiday although we did take our own sun chairs in the garden, as the elders amongst us needed backs on the chairs rather than sit on the the benches outside.

The bedrooms were amazing especially the two four poster bedrooms. Shame we couldn't see the tower as this was locked and under renovation. It kept us fit going up and down the various staircases. We would definitely go back again.

Very interesting house - great kitchen for socialising and we particularly liked the banquet hall.

Amazing unique property from a different era!

  • 5 of 5

This property, which used to be a monastery, was lovingly restored to its former glory. Such a unique experience! Also, great modernised kitchen and bathrooms, we had no reason to eat out as it was such a pleasure cooking in this amazing kitchen. I organised a birthday weekend for my friend in it and all the guest were amazed, I felt so proud for my great find :D Weather was not great but we had lovely indoors BBQ in one of the many open fires in the banquet room. Chepstow and its castle were also very nice to visit. All in all, an amazing weekend just 2h away from London!

Great Choice

  • 5 of 5

What a great find this was! 4 Guests and my self stayed in this quaint historic Mannor. We used this roomy Welsh setting as a home base to explore the region. The houses significance was aggrandized by the connection to some of the other historical location is the Welsh countryside. Highly recommend that a stay in Wales start with this welcoming abode.
