Contemporary barn conversion, gorgeous views ideal for couple
High View Barn is a brand new barn conversion in a unique private setting high up on a ridge overlooking the Wye Valley near Monmouth. It is the perfect romantic getaway for a couple (or a couple with two teenage children) set half a mile from the nearest road at the end of private track. The property is set in 63 acres against a woodland backdrop with gorgeous views over the surrounding countryside to the Forest of Dean and beyond.
The barn is an open plan "indoor/outdoor" building with up to the minute insulation and heating technologies and all modern conveniences within. The kitchen features a complete wall of triple glazed glass with a huge sliding door giving onto an outdoor patio/lawn area. The living room is the full height of the barn featuring the original beams. Off this is a king size bedroom which can be open plan or closed off for complete privacy. If required there is an upstairs balcony which can accommodate two teenage children in 3 ft single beds.
On the same property we also have Church Hill Farm (Homeaway no: 838758) which can accommodate up to 9 people. You may wish to rent the two properties together.

About Christine Steuer
Max and I have lived here since 1977 and love the area. Max is an economist and I work in the music industry managing some great artists and running a record label.
Christine Steuer purchased this Cottage in 1977
Why Christine Steuer chose Penallt
The location is extremely private, half a mile from the nearest road. We have spent two years working on this barn conversion and have paid great attention to detail. It is very comfortable and ultra modern in style.
What makes this Cottage unique
The barn is in a unique spot - very quiet and with gorgeous views. Behind the property is 12 acres of woodland and we have just planted another 10 acres. In front you have a lovely view of the Wye Valley across to the Forest of Dean and Malvern. Without ever getting in your car you can be on a gorgeous walk and within a few minutes take in the view of the Black Mountains across to Hay on Wye.

An amazing property in a stunning location
Its our 3rd stay here - what else can I say - brilliant
Beautiful and well equipped cottage.
Fantastic, relaxing stay in peace and tranquility.
As described in the details- fantastic location; rural and 'away from it all', lovely walks...
All that we hoped for in terms of a lovely, peaceful place to stay - both inside and outside - the chic yet also rustic interior of the barn was seamlessly integrated with the beautiful surrounding countryside and views via the enormous panoramic glass sliding doors- which we had mainly open with the warm weather. Some great walks with our dog too. We hope to come back!
So glad you all had a great time. We very much look forward to seeing you again soon.
Secluded, peaceful and with lovely views.
A beautiful barn conversion with great facilities, with the River Wye in short walking distance and easy access to Monmouth and Tintern.
A wonderfully secluded eco barn with everything
The Eco barn is a fantastic place to stay in every way. If you want seclusion you have it, if you want peace and wonderful views of the Wye Valley you have it.
If the weather is not perfect then the Eco barn is a very comfortable place to be with lots of natural light and a very high standard of fittings and furnishings.
When the sun is out you can open the glass fronted kitchen dining area and enjoy the stone paved patio, lawn and views of the valley. If it gets chilly then the under floor heating and wood burning stove keep you warm and cosy.
When it's time to venture out there is a plethora of splendid places to explore including one or two very welcoming hostelries - all nearby.
Max and Christine are great hosts and are keen that you have all that you need to enjoy your time at the Eco Barn.
Thanks for the nice words. Hope to see you again soon.
