The Little Barn is self-catering accommodation for 2 people and can be found in the
picturesque Usk Valley of Monmouthshire, designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural
Monmouthshire is on the
border between England and Wales and has a diverse landscape and
history. It reaches from the lower valleys of the Usk, Wye and Severn
to the upper reaches of the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons.
The town of Usk is famous
for its lovely river walks, fishing and its beautiful flower
displays. There are numerous restaurants and pubs in the town
where you can enjoy excellent cuisine. Or, if you want to stay at
'home' you can find delicious local produce at the Farmers
Market that is held every fortnight and in the local shops.
Being a border county
there are many castles to visit and even further back in history the
Romans set up camp in nearby Caerleon where a Roman Ampitheatre can
still be clearly seen.
Whilst enjoying the peace
and quiet of this corner of Wales you are still close enough to the
capital of Wales, Cardiff to make a visit. There you can experience
sporting events at the famous Millenium Stadium, 'shop 'til you drop',
enjoy the nightlife or even visit Cardiff Bay with it's many
restaurants and entertainments.
A useful guide to the Wye
Valley and the Forest of Dean can be found at the Wye
Valley and Forest of Dean Tourism Association website.
