First opened in 2007, with a labour of love between running the farm and tending to the animals. It took 8 years to achieve the six luxury holiday cottages we now have available for you.
All the woodwork in the properties has been restored or replaced and has been hand carved and purpose built. Some of the oak was actually grown on the farm over hundreds of years, given that the buildings date from 11th and 15th century, everything has been done to keep them as authentic as possible. Exposed beams in all rooms are all original and vestry gates, millstones and iron wheels have been placed for extra character.
A complimentary breakfast hamper awaits your arrival, including milk, tea, coffee etc.
Each Cottage offers satellite TV, DVD players, FREE Wi-Fi Connection, private
answer-phone and telephone, pets are welcome by appointment.
Usk Country Cottages is a working beef cattle farm. In the spring, the new calves arrive adding to the beauty of this green valley. You may take a guided walk in our 250 acres of rolling green fields and see fantasic sights such as the roman camp, the Sugarloaf and Raglan Castle, you can see for miles on a clear day. There is also an abundance of wildlife to see here, these beautiful creatures include wild ducks, woodpeckers, kingfisher, fire-crest and many more small native birds.
Follow the country walk signs with streams and gentle rolling fields, or visit our local historic churches of St John and St Jerome and the ancient screen, these are right next door to our farmhouse. We are just a few minutes from the famous Roman town of 'Usk'. A short drive will take you to Chepstow, Tintern Abbey and the Wye valley, Monmouth, Newport and Cardiff.
Each property has its own decking and garden furniture overlooking the fishponds and courtyard. Oak Cottage is the largest of four cottages set around the fishpond courtyard, along with Ash, Beech and Birch cottages.
