The well stocked, gently sloping away from the house, country garden gives both privacy and views of the hills and Wye valley beyond Monmouth.

Accessibility: whilst the ground floor has all facilities On one level with only a small 2” step up to enclosed shower, the access to the barn itself is via the back door west facing - a wooden deck and 9” step up via stone and there stone steps down to The main front door- making this unsuitable for those with mobility problems.
