Set deep within 80 acres of meadow and woodland you can find a luxurious modern Lake House that sleeps up to 4 on the edge of the beautiful Wye Valley, near Chepstow. The Lake House has been given a 5 star rating by Visit Wales!

Originally a cricket pavillion, the lake house has been renovated to a luxurious standard with a master bedroom with en-suite and a twin bedroom. Outside there is a large double level decking area which overlooks the lake, perfect for dining al fresco, making use of the BBQ grill. Inside the open plan living/ dining area ensures the property is light and airy with views over the lake from the living area and even from the bedroom. This is the perfect property to stay in for total relaxation. 

There is plenty to do and see on this farm site with children loving the freedom of outdoor space and adults loving the tranquility and beauty of the area. Enjoy many walks around the grounds, taking time to spot the farm animals including the long haired cattle, Soay sheep, many chickens and Tilly the farm dog. Challenge the children to a game of badminton or boules or make a den in the forest before splashing in the river.

After a busy day enjoy a stroll to the local village for dinner in the pub. Further afield you can visit the towns of Monmouth, Tintern and Raglan. Those looking for adventure can try canoeing, rock-climbing, mountain biking and paddleboarding all within 10 miles of the site.
