Elizabeth is happy to invite you into her home, as a traveler, holidaymaker, with children, professional or working person in need  of somewhere comfortable and friendly to stay.  I endeavour to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. Partially disabled people who can walk are also welcome.

There is a floribundant garden which we have landscaped, with a couple of small ponds.  With tables and chairs for you to sit and enjoy the lovely spring and summer and early autumn evenings, which we do get here (though remember this is Britain!) and enjoy the stunning views.  We do encourage you to make the most of all the interesting and beautiful places you can easily access by car, local transport etc. We are not too far for you to visit on a day's outing to the seaside, Gower Coast , Swansea and Porthcawl,  Cardiff about 40 to 50 miles on the A40 & M4 from here.  Also on the Welsh borders, not very far are the towns of Abergavenny, Chepstow, Hay on Wye  and Usk, with the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons practically on our doorstep as is the Forest of Dean on the English side of the border.  Also on the English side, is the town  of Ross-on-Wye, and the Cathedral cities of Gloucester, and Hereford,  Bristol and even Bath are a day's outing.   We have masses of information to hand to help you find your dreams!

The town center is only half a mile from the house.  There are lots of pubs, restaurants and eating places,  also many interesting shops to browse in.  Monmouth now has  a theatre for classical and musical productions  and a picture house, which doubles as a theatre for our local amateur productions. There are lots of things to do down on the river.  We have our local golf club, with several others within a five mile radius.  Newport  is 25 miles away.

This is a versatile, artistic household  with many other interests to keep me busy.   I used to teach flamenco dancing and produce demonstrations for charity and also love the arts and crafts of embroidery, crocheting, knitting etc..  The walls of the house are covered with Phil's pictures, (a bit like a picture gallery) which you are welcome to view and even buy!
