Escape to the Country

Longtown lies at the foot of the Black Mountains along the top of which runs the long mapsdistance path Offa's Dyke.It is in the middle of unspoilt sheep farming country with miles of footpaths taking you into beautiful hidden landscapes.

The Monnow, Olchon and Escley rivers converge at Longtown and the Monnow itself runs past The Mill. There is a Norman castle in the village with a small community garden and a green beside which is an ancient dipping well.

Hopes of Longtown, the award winning village shop and Post Office are within a 5 minute walk of the cottage. There are wonderful walks from gentle to strenuous within easy reach and fishing is available on a network of famous local trout streams.
