About the property

Cottage in Trellech, Nr. Monmouth, Monmouthshire, Wales - Peaceful Location, Enclosed Garden, Spectacular Views And Beautiful Walks Form Your Back Door

Bronte's Cottage is a modern,spacious, stylish and comfortable cottage snuggled into a cosy, private spot on an equestrian farm in the centre of the historic village of Trellech 5 miles from Monmouth. This is the perfect place to sit back and relax, or to get out and about exploring everything that this wonderful area has to offer. The cottage benefits from stunning views across the fields where you can see horses,donkey, sheep and chickens beyond your very spacious enclosed, secure garden. Reviews so far compliment the comfort of the cottage, and that it is of a high standard. I am delighted to add, that although only launched May 2013 I have enjoyed residents returning many times which speaks for itself. Enjoy walks in the neighbouring woodland. There is direct access to footpaths on the farm. Brontes cottage is 200 yards from the village shop, the award winning local dog friendly pub and a few minutes walk from the start of the Whitestone, Whitebrook and the Wye Tread and Trot trail and the situated on the “Monmouthshire Way.”

Inside there is a very large fully equipped modern kitchen, a downstairs shower room and very spacious lounge dining area with kingsized sofa bed. There are double patio doors off the lounge leading to the outside seating area.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, the master bedroom has one superking bed and an ensuite comprising a bath with shower over, sink and WC.

Guests tell me time again how tranquil and peaceful the cottage is, also,very warm inside in winter.

Your private driveway will park three cars (maybe more depending on size)

There is a patio area to sit and enjoy the views.

Simply drive into your own private driveway, close the high solid gates behind you, open the keysafe, let yourself in, there are welsh goodies for you on arrival and lock the world behind you.

Pet friendly by prior arrangement

We had a fantastic weekend, the cottage is absolutely beautiful, the photos really don't do it justice, it's a lot bigger in real life, there was so much provided too from hairdryers to little things like salt and pepper, it really was stunning, Emma the owner doesn't get enough credit, very helpful, lovely lady, she even rescued us from a spider, we will 100% be returning in the new year! Thank you for everything :)

Spacious, well equipped in a great location for the outdoors

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 5 day stay with our dog. The enclosed garden was great for him and we were lucky with the weather which allowed us to eat outside most evenings. It’s a short walk to the village and there are so many beautiful scenic walks nearby. The house itself is well appointed and spacious so no problem if you’re not as lucky with the weather. Would definitely recommend.

Good cottage

  • 3 of 5

Good location but rather spoilt by the close proximity of the cockerels who crowed a lot. Downstairs very spacious if a little stark and bare and lots of very old leaflets. The large bedroom was ok except duvet was very hot and there was no alternative. The second bedroom was very small without any real hanging space. Lovely area.

Emma is just fantastic and the cottage was lovely. Emma was so quick to accommodate our needs. Brontes Cottage is clean, comfortable, and just beautiful. The pub a short walk away has fantastic food and the service and atmosphere is so welcoming. Thank you for hosting us, Emma!!!

Well equipped Well Hosted

  • 5 of 5

Brontes Cottage was lovely. We were blessed with perfect weather aswell. Emma the host is lovely and clearly take pride in her business. Everything was lovely and clean and well organised. Wi-fi and TV excellent. Enclosed garden as described and having the friendly Lion Inn pub just 300m away was perfect. The Inn served what We would call a very basic menu. The local shop was open daily but had very odd and different opening times on each day so if reliant then suggest people look at times when you arrive, some days it’s only open for 2hrs. You can get fresh eggs from Emma’s chickens if you ask - they were delicious

Would definitely go back if we wanted to revisit the area again.

Thanks wanna
