Orchard House is so big that there won't be any problems fitting in everyone. The spacious house and annexe combine to sleep up to 24 people in 10 bedrooms, sitting in 40 beautiful acres that include woodland, orchard, expansive lawns, fields and far-reaching views of the Brecon Beacons. It's private and secluded yet only 20 minutes from the Severn Bridge. If you are searching for a big house holiday let for a family get-together, hen weekend, wedding reception, milestone birthday, or just because you haven't seen everyone for a while, Orchard House is perfect.
The house is in the peaceful hamlet of Llangovan, a few miles from Usk and a short drive from Abergavenny and Monmouth. The standard of accommodation and the grounds are so impressive that it would be understandable if guests didn't want to leave! However, those who venture outside the gate will be greeted by plentiful opportunities to walk, mountain bike, sail, fish and climb. With the Brecon Beacons National Park to the west and the beautiful Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) to the east, there are no end of ways to enjoy being outdoors and active.
Day trips can include visits to Abergavenny, Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye, Hay-on-Wye, Hereford, Cardiff and Bristol. There is an impressive number of castles within a small radius, including Raglan, Chepstow, Caldicot, White and Grosmont Castles. Other local attractions include the Lost City of Trellech, Big Pit and the Blaenavon UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Savoy Theatre in Monmouth and the Brecon Mountain Railway. There are also nearby activity centres where you can plan fun activities like gorge walking, canoeing and abseiling.
The owners of Orchard House have decorated it with comfort in mind, furnishing it to a high standard so that guests can relax completely and enjoy spending time with family and friends. It is available for short breaks all year round. Please see the owner's website for more details.
