Tastefully modernised and extended, this 200 year old stone-built property has an abundance of character, with beamed ceilings throughout, exposed stonework and some original interior doors. In the large sitting/dining room, there's an imposing open fireplace with a solid wood lintel and a slate hearth, housing a wood-burning stove. A stone fireplace set into the corner of the dining area is another lovely, historic feature.
The kitchen, which has room for a breakfast table, has exposed brickwork, painted panelling and a quarry tile floor. A belfast sink is set into a bespoke, solid wood kitchen unit. There is a separate utility room and the downstairs accommodation also comprises a double bedroom with an ensuite cloakroom. Externally, a door leads to stairs down to a cellar.
Upstairs there's a family bathroom and two more double bedrooms. One of these is particularly attractive, featuring the exposed beams of the A-frame, exposed wooden floorboards, a pretty arched doorway and, most enticing of all, a pair of French doors opening to a raised wooden terrace, quite the most wonderful place to sit and enjoy the idyllic, natural setting.

The hilltop village of Penallt is a small but thriving community, set high above the market town of Monmouth, which is about six miles away. Surrounded by wonderful walks and beautiful scenery, it offers a country lifestyle, yet with easy access to the motorway network to the city life of Cardiff, Bristol, Birmingham and beyond. The village's Pelham Hall hosts a variety of sports and leisure activities and social events. There's a lovely, award-winning community park at Babington Meadow, in the heart of the village and the picturesque old church is set in the trees about a mile north of the village in a tranquil spot which commands views of the surrounding countryside. The two local pubs are the Bush in Penallt village, and The Boat in its pretty riverside location alongside the River Wye. There is a village shop in nearby Redbrook and in Trellech, about five miles away, there's a primary school and another pub, The Lion Inn.
The cottage is set above the River Wye and located on a no-through road, with parking on the driveway for about three cars.
The well-kept, well-stocked terraced gardens are a delight, featuring established trees, lawn planted with spring bulbs and a stream gurgling through the grounds. The gardens adjoin open fields and ancient woodland and there are stunning views over the surrounding countryside to the Wye Valley below.
