    Within the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this lovely, detached cottage is hidden away on the Kymin, a part National Trust and part Woodland Trust owned hill that rises steeply above the River Wye and overlooks the pretty and historic town of Monmouth.
    The cottage faces due west and offers incredible views over the Vale of Monmouth, glimpses of the Wye and the Monnow with a backdrop of the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons. From the veranda you can enjoy dramatic sunsets in the summer months and all year round there are amazing skyscapes providing a perfect setting for relaxing amidst birds and wildlife. In colder months the view can be enjoyed from the living room with a cosy wood burner crackling away.
    Woodside Cottage backs onto Offa’s Dyke path and is a short walk from the 18th century Round House (National Trust) and Lady Park Wood National Nature Reserve. The Forest of Dean is in one direction, the Wye Valley and Symonds Yat in the other and the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park are in easy reach in another. The cottage is a perfect base for walking, cycling (mountain biking is popular in the area) and for river activities.
    Monmouth, the birth place of Henry V (of Agincourt fame) and the seat of the Rolls family is just 2 miles away. Monmouth is an unspoiled medieval market town and offers restaurants, shops, pubs, river walks and the famous Monnow Bridge with its surviving medieval gated tower. There are two museums, one devoted to original Nelson memorabilia, the other in the Castle and Monmouthshire Regiment Museum. The town hosts a free music festival in July/August each year, a river festival and various agricultural and other shows. The famous Rockfield studios are just outside the town, on the way to the historic Rolls of Monmouth golf course.
    Places to visit within 10 miles include the beautiful and romantic ruin of Tintern Abbey, the Norman castles at White Castle, Skenfrith and Grosmont as well as Raglan Castle, which dates back to the 1430s and Goodrich Castle near Symonds Yat. Abergavenny, with its own castle is another pretty market town, 17 miles from Monmouth, which hosts a world famous annual food festival in September. Whether you crave history and culture, outdoor activities or simply doing nothing in beautiful surroundings, Woodside Cottage is an ideal spot. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    "Great cottage with a wonderful view over Monmouth, the Brecons, (Sugar Loaf) and the Black Mountains. A perfect place to walk from with the Kymin and Round House a 5 minute walk up the hill. The owners were very thoughtful and we found a bottle of prosecco in the fridge on arrival."

    "A very comfortable cottage with amazing views. The only negative is the access... the flight of steep steps may prove a challenge to anyone with hip or knee issues. We would definitely consider booking this cottage again."

    "Absolutely loved our stay at the cottage and we are looking into coming back already. It’s very spacious, well equipped and has amazing views. Beds were very comfortable and the shower was lovely (unlike many holiday places!). My only criticisms would be: we saw lots of cobwebs and the house isn’t very quiet, so bear that in mind when taking a baby as it’s hard to get them to sleep (everyone needs to be really quiet!).This isn’t a criticism as it’s totally the owner’s choice, but we would have loved a highchair and cot to be provided. These things aren’t expensive and would save us having to squeeze them into a very packed car!"

    "Would have liked to have had bettter cutlery and kitchen equipment, for example there were no steak knives or plastic dishes for children. However it was in a beautiful location with outstanding views from the cottage and nice walks nearby. The cottage was very clean and spacious."

    "The cottage is located in the side of Kymin hill providing an excellent view of Monmouth in the valley below. Access to the cottage is via a single track road which is a sharp left turn off the road up Kymin. Unfortunately the bad weather meant we were unable to explore the area but there is good access to local footpaths and trails.The cottage itself is well furnished and recently decorated. Bedrooms have plenty of storage and beds are comfortable. The shower is excellent. One thing is that whilst the WiFi was very good and we were able to watch Netflix, we would have liked there to be a DVD player on the main TV.Would go back. Excellent value for money."
