Searching for an ideal location for a country cottage holiday or rural retreat break? The village of Llanishen is located in Monmouthshire in the south eastern part of Wales and overlooks the picturesque Vale of Usk. Set within the stunning Wye Valley Forest Park, in which the River Wye, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the UK’s fifth longest river can be found, Llanishen is perfect for a country cottage break. This is a very historical part of Wales and is a fascinating place to visit or stay in if you are looking for tranquillity and quiet as it has a small population and is very rural. Close by, around 10 miles to the north east of Llanishen, in England, is the beautiful Forest of Dean and around 16 miles to the north west of the village is the Brecon Beacons National Park. A self-catering holiday in or close to Llanishen therefore comes highly recommended for those who enjoy nature, the great outdoors and wildlife watching.
