Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Shop 2 miles via footbridge over River Wye, pub 1 mile. Note: Due to the nature of the garden, this property accepts guests over 18yrs and over only (inc. infants). Note: The property is accessed via stone steps through the garden to the upper level entrance door. There is also an alternative access route via a grassed slope, which runs from the rear of the cottage. Note: The ground floor of the cottage is a home office, which is generally unused when guests are present. It has it's own totally private entrance. Region: Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South. Town: Penallt is a small village on the England/Wales border, and has easy access to the Forest of Dean, the Wye Valley and the River Wye.More
