Book a hotel in Monmouthshire to properly explore this beautiful and historic southeastern Welsh county. It is the region where rivers cascade from distant mountains and buzzing market towns flow with antiques and fresh and local farmers' produce.

Town and city breaks in Monmouthshire

The towns of Monmouth and Tintern are the most significant areas of Monmouthshire County. Tintern is home to a 12th-century Cistercian Abbey, which, whilst lying in ruins, is still a hugely impressive sight to behold. The substantial industrial history of the town is emphasised by the old Wireworks Bridge that sits stubbornly over the Wye. From your hotel in Monmouthshire you can explore a number of traditional and vibrant antique and flea markets in beautiful riverside towns such as Abergavenny and Chepstow. Monmouth is considered more of a thriving market town. For those seeking another hotel in Monmouthshire, Cwmbran boasts some of the best shopping facilities in the region and is definitely the place to head from your Monmouthshire hotel if you're looking for some bargains or interesting gifts.

Holidays in the Monmouthshire countryside

Monmouthshire is renowned for its scenic countryside and ancient remnants which continue to dot the Welsh landscape. Venture through kissing gates, forges and broadleaf forest as you follow the course of the trout-and salmon-rich River Usk. Canoeists stop off for a light snack or picnic between the Black Mountains on the River Wye bound east for England. The Black Mountains is a section of the Brecon Beacons National Park, a grassy moorland which features a range of fun activities for guests to indulge in, such as horse-riding, biking, hiking and various water activities. This is a great and beautiful area to visit from your hotel in Monmouthshire. Follow the signs for Buckholt Woods to be blown away by Blorenge and Skirrid Fawr's rugged peaks.

Attractions in Monmouthshire

Monmouthshire is definitely one for the more reserved visitor. Life isn't particularly fast in this quaint county, but for those looking for entertainment, Newport is your best bet. Along with a local football and rugby club, the city includes various golf courses, some superb restaurants and is a great destination for a short break. Check out the thoroughbreds pounding their way around Chepstow Racecourse or for something a bit more cultural, Medieval Raglan and Norman Monmouth Castle ruins have battlements and ramparts to explore.
The county of Monmouthshire, which sits comfortably in southeast Wales, is characterised by its pastoral beauty and collection of archaic towns. Book a Best Western hotel in Monmouthshire to really get to appreciate the unspoiled paradise for those looking to get away for a short time period. This gorgeous Welsh region is the perfect region for anyone to take a short UK break.
