This wonderful and unique property combines fantastic Arts & Crafts style with all the comfort and modern convenience you need for the perfect extended family or large group stay.
In the heart of the Wye Valley in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Benches is perfectly located for exploring the wider area; take to the great outdoors in the Forest of Dean, the Brecon Beacons or the Black Mountains, and if you're feeling adventurous go abseiling, rock climbing, canoeing, or mountain biking. For something more sedate opt for fishing, golf or pony trekking, or pick up a walking trail and take yourself off on a leisurely amble through the beautiful countryside; nature lovers may spot peregrine falcons nesting in the cliffs at Symonds Yat. Walk into Monmouth and potter round the shops, go and browse the many book shops in Hay-on-Wye, head south to see the majestic ruins of Tintern Abbey.
Depending on the time of year, you can soak up the vibrant atmosphere at Abergavenny Food Festival or Monmouth Festival, and year round you'll find plenty of opportunities for family days out. Take in some art with a difference on The Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail, climb on board a steam train on the Perrygrove or Dean Forest Railway, whizz through the trees on zip wires at Go Ape, head underground at Clearwell Caves, solve conundrums in the forest at Puzzlewood, learn some history at Dean Heritage Centre. Make wonderful memories at Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo, and The aMazing Hedge Puzzle - all are within easy reach of The Benches. It's gonna be great!
