Property Features

Property Description

Situated within the heart of Skenfrith directly opposite the castle and lying along part of The Three Castles’ Walk, the property is approximately 200 years old and, as its name suggests, was the old Post Office, tea room and bakery in its day, it now offers characterful, cosy accommodation with an open fire, wood-burning stove and extras for adults and children alike, with a pool table as well as table tennis. There is plenty to see and do in the area for a perfect holiday. It lies within 100 yards of the site of the River Monnow - listed as one of the top places to swim in rivers in the UK, close to the Black Mountains, Skirrid, and the Golden Valley. Offas Dyke Path, the Black and White Trail and the Forest of Dean make for some great walking. Other activities such as cycling, with cycle paths locally, canoeing and fishing on the River Wye, horse riding and golfing will all be found within the surrounding areas, or explore the wealth of countryside. Symonds Yat amusement park is nearby - activities include boat rides, fair, picnicking and amusements. The Old Post Office is within 200 yards of an award winning pub/restaurant and within easy driving distance of the market towns of Monmouth, Abergavenny, Hereford and Ross-on-Wye, all offering great eateries, tea rooms and shopping. Hay-on-Wye, famous for its wealth of bookshops is one hour away. Bristol is an hour away, and Cardiff at 45 minutes - making for a great day out. Shops 2 miles, pub 110 yards.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A fantastic, quirky holiday home with lots of space for families and children. Huge trampoline in the garden was very popular! The location opposite the castle ruins is beautiful and great for the children to explore. Added interest as an episode of Dr Who was filmed in the village and featured the Old Post Office! Oct 2012.
  2. We loved this property. Three generations all adequately entertained throughout our stay. Kids loved the trampoline and tree hose. Boys enjoyed the pool table and table tennis. Lots of board games and books provided. Aug 2012.
  3. A great house for a family party in a wonderful location. Disappointingly "Welsh" weather but we still had a great time and were grateful for indoor games activities available. Not a luxury house but comfortable enough and well suited to a large family group who enjoy the great outdoors and gorgeous Welsh scenery. June 2012.
  4. We had a wonderful holiday. The Old Post Office was perfect! There were 11 of us but the house never felt crowded at all. The fine weather meant we could enjoy the garden - the trampoline was ideal for our little Grand daughter! The owners seemed to have thought of everything, plenty of crockery, cutlery, pots and pans and all spotless. The village was idylic and we will never forget what a great holiday it was for all 4 generations of our family. Would definitely recommend this lovely house, especially for a large group. We didn’t want to leave! May 2012.
  5. The location is stunning, the bedrooms and kitchen are spacious, the garden lovely, and there is a good range of different ground floor spaces. Another toilet and a separate shower/bathroom upstairs would be nice. April 2012.
  6. Comfortable, warm and everything you could need was thought of. Dec 2010.
  7. Interesting property with space for a large group in different rooms. Oct 2010.
  8. Everything. May 2010.
  9. An interesting property, well furnished, with various sports equipment available. April 2010.
  10. Lovely place, beautiful location, sufficient space for 11-12 people! March 2010.
