In an idyllic picture postcard position, affording impressive long distance hillside views traversing the splendid Vale of Usk towards the Skirrid Fawr and the Sugar Loaf, is this rural country retreat, owned by the same family for generations and sitting in superb well-tended gardens enveloping the cottage. A pretty period residence such as this is rarely available on the open market and offers two generous reception rooms and a modest kitchen to the ground floor, together with three bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms on the first floor, two of which are contemporary en-suites. The cottage has benefitted from some recent improvement works and a small double storey rear extension and given the plot size, lends itself to additional alteration and further improvement to suit.
Wernrheolydd is a small hamlet in rural Monmouthshire, surrounded by some of the most highly favoured and sought after villages and hamlets in the area including Coed Morgan, Llanddwei Rhydderch, Llanvapley, Llanarth and Penrhos. In a rural idyll with country walks on the doorstep, this residence is not too far from the larger towns of Raglan, Usk and Abergavenny with all the high street shops, pubs and restaurants that are widely on offer in the region. Nearby are the majestic mountain ranges of the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains which are part of a designated National Park that boasts a varied and excellent range of outdoor pursuits including walking, hiking, fishing, sailing, cycling, pony trekking, hang-gliding and para gliding.
The biggest town with the widest selection of supermarkets, transports links and schooling is in Abergavenny which, depending on route, is approximately 7.5 miles away and offers a comprehensive range of shopping and leisure facilities including a wide selection of boutique style shops, complemented by high street names and highly renowned cafes and restaurants. Culturally important, local events of national and international significance include the Abergavenny food festival, the Green Man music festival and the Hay festival of literature, other regular events take place throughout the year (further local information is available at .)
Abergavenny boasts a Farmers Market and has its own cinema and leisure centre.
