About the neighborhood
The cottage is located in a quiet residential hamlet called Catbrook approx 2 miles by road on the hill above Tintern Village and Tintern Abbey in the spectacularly lovely Wye Valley. Catbrook is within the officially designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The cottage has quiet neighbouring houses and is in a cul de sac so almost no passing traffic.. It is not isolated but the setting is private. You can walk with your dog from the doorstep on lanes or into protected woodland- beautiful all year.There are well waymarked trails. The location is very convenient. We are under half an hour by car from Motorway links M50/M5/M6 and from M48/M4 so therefore accessible all year.
Getting around
Its best to bring your own car or cycle as public transport is not ideal in our rural area. Nearest bus stops are approx 1.5 miles.
