Wow fac­tor 30 acre farm, com­plete pri­va­cy, with pool, hot tub and games room, sleeps 12 – 24

Peny­clawd, Monmouthshire 

Farm and Barn with pool in out­stand­ing rur­al loca­tion Each sleep 12, though Barn equipped to cook/​seat/​dine 24 — enjoy the best of both worlds!

The hill­top retreat of explor­er, adven­tur­er, and author Christi­na Dod­well, High Cloud res­onates with the spir­it of her trav­els, with maps, books, pic­tures and arte­facts in evi­dence everywhere.

Styl­ish and spa­cious, the farm­house and barn have panoram­ic rur­al views show­ing the ruins of Raglan cas­tle in mid dis­tance stretch­ing to the Sug­ar­loaf moun­tain where the sun sets — fan­tas­tic to see from the ter­race and swim­ming pool. Beau­ti­ful­ly qui­et yet only min­utes dri­ve from award win­ning pubs and restaurants.

The accom­mo­da­tion is both spa­cious and com­fort­able, ful­ly equipped and recent­ly fur­nished to a high stan­dard. There are sun ter­races, a veran­dah, cro­quet lawn and grassy area for ball games. Large out­door heat­ed swim­ming pool (sum­mer only). All year hot tub. Games room. Ample park­ing. Dis­abled access to both buildings.

The farm itself has enchant­i­ng walks, with a pic­turesque grot­to in its own wood­lands, and the stream walk which has many lit­tle water­falls and wild flow­ers. There is a well-tend­ed grassy jog­ging or walk­ing track round the fields. 

Free of noise and traf­fic , just sheep and cat­tle in near­by fields. Lots of birds, includ­ing 2 pairs of buz­zards. Bad­ger dens by stream. Won­der­ful sun­sets, hot air bal­loons in the sky doing low pass­es over Raglan Castle.

On the bor­der between Eng­land and Wales, this area has many ruined cas­tles and church­es, the clos­est being Raglan Cas­tle and Tin­tern Abbey. 

The area offers boat cruis­es, walks and adven­ture activ­i­ties in Wye Val­ley Gorge, or walks on Offa’s Dyke, Sug­ar­loaf and oth­er moun­tains. For towns, we’re with­in an hour of Bris­tol, Cardiff, Chep­stow, Chel­tenham and Hereford.

Near­est pub 5 min­utes by car.. Vil­lage shops: 10 min­utes by car. The Raglan Londis shop bakes fresh bread and pies. The near­by town of Mon­mouth has many restau­rants and inde­pen­dent shops.

Easy access to M4, M5 and M50. The dri­ve from west Lon­don takes 2½ hours, Birm­ing­ham 1.5. Per­fect for any group want­i­ng togeth­er­ness with a bit of their own

Spe­cial Features

Although the barn is equipped for all 26 to eat and sit togeth­er hav­ing the farm­house adja­cent with all its own facil­i­ties offers a per­fect oppor­tu­ni­ty for some sep­a­ra­tion when wanted.


3 Kitchens, a num­ber of com­fy sit­ting areas with 3 TVs. Won­der­ful light every­where. Qual­i­ty fit­tings espe­cial­ly in bathrooms.


Stun­ning. House sits on a hill top in acreas of it’s own land. Nobody to both­er when bar­be­cue­ing, using the hot tub, play­ing music, using the pool, play­ing cro­quet or ball games, or just loung­ing around enjoy­ing the com­pa­ny of fam­i­ly and friends.
