This property is part of our Welsh Country Cottages collection

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above..


There is plenty to do close to this riverside property, including kayaking, exploring Welsh towns or salmon fishing.

Nestled in a truly magnificent position on the picturesque banks of the glistening River Monnow, this beautifully presented, detached, sngle-storey holiday apartment, adjacent to the owner’s home, provides an ideal retreat for a couple or family looking for a rural adventure. Conveniently located just a short stroll away from the historic village of Skenfrith, with its gastro pub and 13th-century medieval castle, the property has been lovingly put together, with spacious living areas and lots of welcoming touches, including a traditional wood burner for those cosy nights in. Guests are invited to stroll the 8 acres of mature grounds, which offer peace and tranquillity in abundance, or sit back and relax in the enclosed garden and watch the red kites soar over the rolling countryside. The house is surrounded by apple orchards, with a private beach area, and the River Monnow, well known for kayaking and chubb and trout fishing, carefully meanders past the grounds. Monmouthshire itself has lots to offer, including dozens of majestic sites waiting to be explored, the historic castles of Raglan and Goodrich, as well as the stunning Tintern Abbey tucked away peacefully in an idyllic location. The charming market towns of Abergavenny and Monmouth offer an interesting day out and are imposed by their magnificent castles, and feature a wide selection of gift shops, traditional Welsh pubs and irresistible restaurants. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Perfect location for walking and investigating local area. Castles and villages. Lovely green hills and valleys. Property located next to river.

    We enjoyed our holiday here very much. Cottage clean and very welcoming. The owners were very friendly and although living next door we didn't see them apart from on arrival. Location is good and easy for shops. Would recommend to anyone.

    The cottage itself and the grounds are delightful. The local environment is stunningly beautiful. Great walks from door. Our low rating for local amenities is because of the service and attitude at the Bell Inn simply awful- not the cottages fault. Similarly the Garway Moon refused to serve us lunch "because they were busy"... only us and two other people in there. If we had planned to eat out locally we would have been disappointed. Again the cottage wonderful and we really appreciated the welcome pack!

    We had a wonderful stay. The property is beautiful. My husband and my 5 year old fished the river and caught trout. We picked fruit, we paddled in the little beach area. The owners were lovely, let my little boy collect the eggs and let him ask a million questions.... The only thing I would say is that we had our 2 year old with us so had to be extra careful by the river edge but apart from that it was perfect.

    Had a great stay at Ruthlin mews. The location and surroundings are close to perfect. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful, giving us some much needed advice about the local area and most importantly the best places to eat :) I would highly recommend this cottage and the area. If you have a dog ( which we do ) it’s absolutely perfect. We will definitly consider visiting again

    Tasteful cottage in a lovely position. Bed very comfortable. Hosts were welcoming and friendly. Lots of interesting things to see and do nearby. Kitchen space and equipment was a bit limited for cooking.
