About the property

This cosy and charming 'chocolate box' cottage sits on the ridge of Gaer-Fawr affording what must be some of the best views in the area and when I asked the owners "What was it about this property that attracted you?", they simply said "The View". Glyn Rhyd is situated in an elevated position at the base of an ancient iron age fort which would have benefited from a perfect vantage point for surveying the surrounding lands. The nearby village of Llangwm is located just 3 miles east of the small picturesque town of Usk whose streets are steeped in history and sits on one of the finest salmon fishing rivers in the country while being conveniently situated only 10 miles from the M4 allowing for access to Bristol & London. Said to date back to the 19th Century, this cosy cottage was extended some years ago and has been sympathetically updated by the current owners while sitting within around an acre of well-maintained formal gardens with not one, but two summer houses, one of which boasting a hot tub, perfect for relaxing and talking in those breath-taking views. As well as offering parking for several vehicles there is a large detached garage which also has several smaller outbuildings to the side. For those of you who are green fingered, there are raised beds and borders for you to tend to. Then why not retreat to one of the several tiered seating areas ideal for taking in the stunning scenery. Read more
