Stun­ning con­tem­po­rary Farm­house in coun­try paradise

Mon­mouth, Monmouthshire 

Mag­i­cal house in the hid­den Llan­go­van Val­ley with lawns, ter­races, wood­land, stream, wild ponds, total peace. Dark skies.

Hid­den away in the mys­te­ri­ous Llan­go­van Val­ley, Orchard House shares an estate with the Jare­ta sta­bles where clas­si­cal Span­ish hors­es are bred and trained. The house own­ers live in the con­vert­ed barns nearby.

The large grounds include wild fields, walk­ing trails, Llan­go­van Brook, 40 acres of cider apple trees and the beau­ti­ful Gaer Wood , views of the Bre­con Bea­cons, and in spring­time an amaz­ing panoply of the increas­ing­ly rare British Blue­bell – it’s worth vis­it­ing just to inhale the scent . 

The house is a lux­u­ri­ous, light-filled, 10 bed­room, 8 bath­room retreat with games room, dis­abled facil­i­ties and panoram­ic views with­out traf­fic or noise. For lovers of Dark Skies” and iso­lat­ed coun­try­side it’s a rare place. Please be aware that this is a tran­quil loca­tion and is not suit­able for rau­cous par­ties or events. Ampli­fied music is not per­mit­ted out doors.

The accom­mo­da­tion sleeps up to 24 peo­ple and is ide­al for fam­i­lies, birth­day cel­e­bra­tions, reunions, and hol­i­day breaks. You can walk the hills into the pri­vate wood­land, bike on traf­fic free lanes, canoe or cruise the Riv­er Wye, enjoy an enor­mous array of local activ­i­ties and excel­lent pubs and restau­rants. If you want some­thing a lit­tle less sap­ping you can just wind down and sip a drink on the ter­race watch­ing the red kites drift lazi­ly over the acres of cider orchards below you with noth­ing but the sounds of the hors­es in the neigh­bour­ing fields.
