Thanks to its great central location, fantastic eateries and rich cultural heritage, the market town of Monmouth is a popular stopping point along the Wye Valley walking trail. The Welsh countryside is also a major draw, and the town’s position at the confluence of the River Monnow and River Wye makes it a great base from which to explore the area.
If you want to stay centrally, the town itself has a small but adequate choice of locally run hotels and bed and breakfasts. These spill over into the nearby countryside, where you will uncover a fantastic array of self-catering accommodation and a backpackers’ hostel in the glorious greenery of the Wye Valley Nature Reserve.
Hotels in Monmouth
The majority of the hotels in Monmouth are tucked between the trickling waters of its two rivers. The town’s restaurants and eateries also reside in this central district, dotted along Monnow Street. As you might expect from an ancient market town, Monmouth is not the place for large budget hotel chains, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find an affordable place to stay in one of the town’s traditional pub hotels. These hotel rooms are surprisingly airy and luxurious, and still wear the old town charm yet are kitted out with all the modern conveniences you could need for a relaxing break.
Bed and Breakfasts in Monmouth
You’ll also find many excellent bed and breakfasts in Monmouth. A handful of bed and breakfasts are located in the town centre, close to all the eateries and shops on Monnow Street. There are also some prime B&Bs scattered in the nearby countryside on the outskirts of Monmouth. Find a no-fuss bed and breakfast overlooking one of Monmouth's pristine golf courses, or the coarse green banks of the River Wye. When you’re staying in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, what more do you need from your accommodation?
Self-Catering Accommodation in Monmouth
If you prefer your independence, Monmouthshire is home to many self-catering cottages. Monmouth’s rich agricultural heritage means that much of the self-catering accommodation in this charming part of the Welsh countryside is situated in converted farm houses, barns and stables. These conversions now offer opulent surroundings while retaining their historic weight.
Find a place to stay just big enough for you and a loved one in the nearby Forest of Dean. Otherwise, rent a converted barn that will cater to the whole family with space to spare.
The old Welsh farming traditions continue today, and you can pick up some great local produce from the farmers’ market located near the medieval gated bridge that traverses the river Monnow in town.
