Description

High Knowle is a luxurious, detached, architect-designed house with an impressively spacious interior; very suitable for a large family or a group of friends. Situated in a peaceful and leafy area of Monmouth, it is perfectly situated for exploring the town and surrounding area. The large wrap-around garden has patio areas and plenty of space for relaxing or eating alfresco. Inside, the open plan design flows nicely and gives a spacious and luxury air, from the high quality kitchen to the magnificent sun room with ceiling windows and large sofas. Adjacent to the dining area is a games room, and there is also a ground floor twin bedroom and a separate toilet. Upstairs, the master bedroom is en-suite, and there is a further double and twin room, as well as the family bathroom.
Monmouthshire has been a contested borderland over the centuries and has more castles per square mile than anywhere else in the UK. Nestled between the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the stunning landscape will take your breath away. The attractive town of Monmouth has been a draw for tourists since the late 1800’s, and its iconic 13th-century gatehouse bridge is much photographed. The town has many independent shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. Stroll around and stop to enjoy a coffee in a quiet courtyard café. There are regular events throughout the year; the Monmouth Festival is one of Europe’s largest free music festivals and the Monmouthshire Show is the largest one day show in Wales.
Check out the museums in Abergavenny, Monmouth or Chepstow to hear the stories of these towns or visit picturesque Usk, a town with many strings to its bow. It sits on one of the finest salmon fishing rivers in the country, the River Usk, and its 11th-century castle is the backdrop for an enchanting, romantic garden. It hosts a colourful Open Gardens weekend in June and a county show in September, and has a rural life museum, and a Town Trail. Visit Wales’ capital, Cardiff, an easy 45-minute drive, which offers a startling range of unique attractions, top class entertainment and quality shopping. Fans of the cult show will enjoy a visit to the Dr Who Experience!
If you love the great outdoors, the county has more than 1,000 miles of public footpaths to walk. Try your hand at kayaking down the River Wye, or playing a round of golf, there’s no shortage of activities for you to try. Have a go at paddle boarding, one of the fastest-growing sports to hit the UK, or for the more adventurous, experience the thrill of soaring on thermal currents on a tandem paragliding flight off the Blorenge; the prominent hill overlooking the Usk Valley. Whatever your interests, ensure you make time to enjoy High Knowle and relax in sophistication. Shop and restaurant 600 yards, pub 200 yards.

About the local area

Stretching from the village of Mordiford just south of the City of Hereford to the rocky outcrops of Chepstow Castle and covering some 72 miles of the banks of the River Wye, the Wye Valley was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty (AONB) in 1971. Recognised as an internationally important landscape it has now been a protected area for almost 35 years.

Ross-on-Wye is the only town that actually lies within the AONB and it also forms an approximate boundary between the two very different types of landscape that predominate in the valley. To the north of the town the river meanders slowly over the lowlands of Herefordshire. The undulating sometimes steep wooded slopes around the villages of Woolhope, Fownhope, Mordiford and Brockhampton changes to a more gentle flood plain of rich agricultural land as it approaches the town of Ross-on-Wye.

To the South of Ross-on-Wye the scenery changes again into the spectacular and famous landscape of the Wye Gorge that stretch from the village of Goodrich all the way to Chepstow. The dramatic limestone cliffs of Symonds Yat tower above the river as it meanders through the steep wooded slopes of the narrow gorge and forms a huge horseshoe bend almost five miles long. Extensive woodlands cover the slopes and cliffs that surround the river and you can find some impressive viewpoints along the course of the river as it passes through Redbrook, Brockweir, Llandogo and Tintern on its way to the cliffs of Wintour's Leap and its tidal lower reaches.

Golfers are excellently catered for, with no less than 18 courses in the area, including the prestigious Celtic Manor Resort, where the Wentwood Hills course will be the host for the Ryder Cup in 2010.

Fans of the great outdoors will not be disappointed either. There are two national trails, and over 1000 miles of public paths a varying difficulty by meandering rivers, gentle hills, or the rugged Black Mountains. And if you have chance to relax a little why not try some local, homegrown produce in the local farmers markets, which feature closely in the wide variety of superior restaurants in the region.
