Property SummaryMaes Llymysten is an absolutely charming cottage believed to date back to the 17th century. The cottage was bought by the present owners in 2003 and totally refurbished and extended in 2008 to make it an idyllic smaller house.
Approached from the lane where it has private parking for two cars, steps lead up to a series of gravel terraces and on to the front door. A porch leads through to the open plan ground floor which comprises of the dining/sitting room with tiled floor, inset log burner, and deep windowsills. Steps head up to the large kitchen/breakfast room with polished slate flooring, a range of matching oak fronted units beneath a granite worksurface and a large door to outside. There is an Alpha oil-fired stove which also powers the central heating. Door off to the downstairs cloakroom.
A semi-circular staircase leads to a small landing, the main bedroom with stripped pine floor, concealed radiators, spotlights and steps up to the en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has painted panelling to dado rail, and an en-suite shower room.
The garden has been carefully landscaped. It is mainly south facing with gravel pathways, well-stocked herbaceous beds, a large flagstone seating area with dry stone retaining walls, and lawns which slope up to the boundary fence with woodland beyond. A pathway leads round the house with a sheltered log store and a shed. Steps and a pathway continue to the Bothy which is now an equally special office with a polished tile floor and a small shower/cloak room beyond. The lawns continue on to a large wooden garden shed and the concealed oil tank.
Maes Llymysten is situated mid-way up the stunning wooded Whitebrook Valley amidst the glorious countryside of the Wye Valley AONB. The area is sought after not just for its tranquil setting, but also ease of access to Monmouth, Chepstow and the M4. Historic Monmouth has good shops including Marks & Spencer’s and Waitrose, whilst local villages with pubs and shops include Trellech, Llandogo, Penallt and Tintern. The renowned restaurant ‘The Whitebrook’ is a short walk. The A40/A449 provides fast access to the national motorway network and the commercial centres of South Wales, Bristol and Birmingham. London is usually just over 2 hours’ drive and there are intercity rail services from Newport and Bristol Parkway.
Recreational opportunities abound and include a tennis club in Penallt; golf courses at The Hendre (Rolls of Monmouth), Chepstow (St Pierre) and Newport (Celtic Manor); the river Wye flows nearby; and there are glorious walks and rides through the surrounding countryside.
