The Story

Waking up to the sight of the mist rising up off the mountains and watching the magnificent changing colours of the sky as the sun sets on the horizon at night, the views from Cwrt Y Gaer are simply breathtaking.
From their moated country home the owners of the handsome property can see the peaks of the Skirrid, Blorenge and Sugar Loaf Mountain and have far, reaching views out across the rolling Welsh countryside.
“It is such a lovely place,” says one of them. “It is completely surrounded by its own land and the views are just spectacular. It is so quiet here yet it is also so convenient, we can reach Chepstow, Monmouth, Newport and Cardiff really quite easily.”
Cwrt Y Gaer, which means “court with the fort,” dates back to the 1580s and is mentioned in Monmouthshire Houses: Part II, Sub-Medieval Sir Cyril Fox and Lord Raglan: “It started out as a Medieval manor house for the village, which is why it has a moat and later became a farmhouse, we loved its history and its features like the huge fireplace in the drawing room, the spiral stone staircase and the beamed ceilings.”
She adds, “It was a wonderful house and we knew that with some work it could become exactly what we wanted.”

MORNING VIEWS
The kitchen is very much at the heart of life at Cwrt Y Gaer. It has been beautifully fitted out and features a central island and an electric Aga.
The main house has four bedrooms, the master bedroom is particularly large and enjoys a walk in wardrobe, as well as a beautiful oak floor.
“All the bedrooms capture the stunning views, you can lie in bed and look at it as soon as you wake up in the morning.”

HOME FROM HOME
Friends and family have enjoyed visiting Cwrt Y Gaer, sometimes staying in the house and at other times making the most of a little independence in one of the three self-contained apartments.
“Previous owners rented these out as holiday apartments and certainly that is something a new owner could look into. They were always very busy with guests, who often came to the area because the walking was so good.”
She adds, “This is a very accessible place to reach and people love coming here because of the fantastic surroundings.”

GREAT OPPORTUNITY
There is also huge scope to create equestrian facilities at Cwrt Y Gaer, she suggests. Subject to planning consents, outbuildings could lend themselves well to conversion into stables and there is plenty of space for other additions: “One of the outbuildings would be ideal for loose boxes and there is a small paddock behind it, which could be perfect too.”
With 21 acres there are lots of other opportunities at the property too. The setting could be suitable for a small holding or possible business uses.
“We do have good broadband here so it is a lovely place to work.”

IDYLLIC PLACE
The location is idyllic for anyone who likes outdoor living. People love to walk in the picturesque environs, Tintern Abbey is close by and the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains are within reach.
“We also have our own piece of woodland, which is full of bluebells in the spring,” she says. “There is so much to see in this area, red kites, barn owls and lots of other birds. We often see a herd of red deer out in the paddock.”

Setting The Scene

The glorious setting of Cwrt Y Gaer offers country living within easy reach of lively, well-connected market towns and Cardiff.
The property is surrounded by 21 acres of its own land, which includes areas of paddock, as well as mature woodland.
The grounds contain three self-contained holiday apartments, together with other outbuildings, which could hold the potential for conversion either for equestrian use (subject to the relevant planning permissions) or possibly for additional accommodation.
