Cottage rentals in Monmouth, Monmouthshire, Wales

Monmouth is the county town of Monmouthshire which can be found in the south east of Wales, just a mile or so from the border with England. This lovely town is set in gorgeous surroundings, located at the meeting point of two different rivers, the River Wye and the River Monnow and is a scenic place for a self-catering break. Monmouth is a tourist attraction and there is plenty to recommend the area, including the incredible Wye Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the gorgeous Forest of Dean which lies only around one mile over the border in nearby England.


What Monmouth offers for Cottage Breaks

Monmouth has plenty to offer visitors taking a cottage holiday including countless shops, both high street and independent boutiques, which line the historical Monnow Street. This street used to be where the town’s market would be held and today is the central point of the settlement. There are also various pubs, restaurants and cafes here for when you get peckish and want to sample some of the local delicacies of this part of Wales.

There are a number of interesting things to see whilst on a self-catering holiday in Monmouth, including the historical and traditional theatre, the Savoy. Located on Church Street, the Savoy Theatre today doubles up as a cinema and a Grade II listed building, believed to be the oldest working theatre in all of Wales. Seeing a performance here will both be entertaining and educational as you sit back and watch a show in a theatre that dates back nearly two hundred years old.

For more hints and tips on things to see and do locally in Monmouth when on a cottage break we recommend that you visit the Tourist Information Centre at Agincourt Square for free leaflets, information and advice on local attractions.

The Monmouth Museum is a must-see when visiting the town as it is home to an incredible collection of Nelson material. There is also a Regimental Museum which can be found in the Great Castle House, a historical building that was constructed on a part of the site of Monmouth Castle, the ruins of which can also be visited.

If you happen to be visiting Monmouth during late July or early August then you must check out the Monmouth Festival, an incredible free music festival that has been running since 1982 and goes on for nine days. It features fantastic performances from artists locally and further afield and previous performers at the festival have included Mungo Jerry, The Drifters and Goldie Looking Chain. There are also other festivals to pop along to in the year including the Rockfield Country Music Festival and the annual regatta, held every May.

With a leisure centre, an 18-hole golf course, a rowing club and plenty of paths and routes for walks amongst the beautiful scenery, Monmouth is a fantastic place in which to visit for a holiday in Wales. When it comes to finding a place to relax and lay your head, Country Cottages Online features a great choice of self-catering accommodation. Whether you are searching for dog-friendly cottages or romantic retreats, we hope you find an ideal place to stay.

Book a Monmouth cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Monmouthshire on holiday.
