About The Manor on the Monnow

The Manor on the Monnow is a rare find. The group holiday let is built in the Baroque style and occupies an enviable position on the bank of the Monnow River and only a ten minute walk from the centre of Monmouth with it’s array of independent shops, pubs and eateries. It's perfect for extended family gatherings, special occasions, milestone celebrations or just getting the gang together because it's been far too long since you've all seen each other. The house comfortably accommodates up to 24 people in 11 bedrooms with loads of space for socialising and entertaining both indoors and outside.

Monmouth is a fantastic choice for a holiday destination. The town has a long and illustrious history and is not only the birthplace of King Henry V but is also the site of Monmouth Bridge - built in 1272 and the only remaining fortified bridge in Great Britain. Monmouth has two supermarkets and a good choice of independent cafes and shops. Locals strongly recommend a scoop or two of gelato from Green and Jenks on Agincourt Square, whose striped awning is easy to recognise. Monmouth has several excellent local museums including the Nelson Museum and Local History Centre, which has a superb collection of memorabilia of Lord Horatio Nelson, and the Monmouth Castle and Military Museum.

Once you've explored Monmouth, you can head over the river to where the beautiful Wye Valley begins, with miles of footpaths and cycling routes. The Forest of Dean is also close, with lots of family-friendly trails. Another option is the traffic-free Monnow Trail which you can access from the gate without having even to cross a single road.

Other local attractions include Puzzlewood, which is one of Britain's genuinely ancient forests, Clearwell Caves, Symonds Yat, White Castle, Chepstow Castle and Tintern Abbey. Abergavenny, Brecon, Hay-on-Wye and the Brecon Beacons are all within easy reach, as are Hereford, Gloucester and Cheltenham.

You don't need to think twice when a big self-catering property this good is available. You can find out more about the house and check availability on the owner's website.

Accommodation Comprises:

The Manor on the Monnow is a big house with a grand stone facade and accommodation over two expansive levels.


  • Enter into the magnificent Lion Hall where the scale of the property is immediately apparent. The space doubles up as a living area with seating and a fireplace.
  • Settle down in front of the log burner in the Great Hall, which is a fitting name for this spacious living room. There are comfortable leather sofas, a TV, and lots of natural oak visible in the enormous window frame and the gallery above. Despite its size, it's a welcoming space where guests can relax and socialise.
  • Second sitting room/snug, also with comfortable sofas, a TV and a fireplace. The owners have provided a selection of family-friendly games for guests to enjoy during their stay.
  • More living space in the games room, which is adjacent to the Great Hall and has snooker, table tennis, table football and other games. Multi-aspect windows and a vaulted ceiling give the room a light, spacious feeling.
  • Separate formal dining room with a table big enough to seat a full house. The decorative brick fireplace adds a sense of occasion.
  • Enormous kitchen with everything necessary to cater for 20+ hungry people including two double ovens, two microwaves and ample cooking equipment and utensils. The kitchen is also suitable for guests who hire external caterers to cook for them during their stay.
  • Sunny breakfast room with a solid wood table and chairs for eight people. This room is perfect for lazy brunches where everyone eats in their own time, to keep an eye on children who eat early, or for informal meals.
  • Two of the Manor's 11 bedrooms are on the ground floor. Both are lovely twin rooms with two full-sized (3ft-wide) single beds in each. One of the rooms has an ensuite with a shower, WC and a handbasin.
  • Separate shower room with a shower, WC and a handbasin.


  • Two flights of stairs go up to the first floor. One leads from the Lion Hall at the front of the house, while the other is at the rear of the house, next to the breakfast room.
  • There are nine bedrooms on this level.
  • Four twin bedrooms, each with two full-sized single beds, bedside tables and reading lights, and garden views. One of the rooms also has an ensuite with a shower, WC and a handbasin.
  • Four double rooms with proper storage and charming views. Two of these double rooms have their own ensuite with a shower, WC and a handbasin.
  • Family room with a double bed, two single beds and an ensuite with a shower, WC and a handbasin.
  • Two family bathrooms with a walk-in shower, bath, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: The house has two acres of grounds which include a paved courtyard with picnic tables and bench seating, a covered hot tub, and river frontage with fishing rights. There is ample off-street parking.

Additional Information: All utilities, WiFi, fuel for the log burner, bed linen and bath towels are included. Up to three well behaved dogs are welcome with prior agreement from the owner. A cot (no bedding), high chair and stairgate are available on request. Smoking is not permitted.
